Ashley & Ryan

We are still catching up on blog posts from our 2016 weddings but super excited to finally show you the amazing images from Ashley and Ryan’s wedding at Bluemont Vineyard that were taken by Bekah Kay Photography.  Now let me tell you, these are two of the kindest, coolest people you will ever meet. They have a large group of loyal and fun friends which made the entire day a complete joy and fun to be around.  Getting married in November means you never quite know what to expect from the weather but this day in November was gorgeous, the sky was so clear you could see for miles and provided a beautiful backdrop.  For the outdoor ceremony, we setup a chuppah and attached her father’s tallit, it was such a personal touch and really created a dramatic focal point in front of the blue sky.   Ashley carried a stunning cascading bouquet that we absolutely loved making.  Her bouquet had a variety of all purple flowers and greenery that included cool water roses, mokara orchids, freesia, calla lilies and variety of eucalyptus.  The centerpieces were two different designs, one floral arrangement with a variety of textures and fall tones that included dahlias, mums, marigolds, scented geranium and greenery and the other a distressed ivory lantern with greenery and flower blooms surrounding it.  The shades of purple with orange and ivory accents, went perfect for a fall wedding.  Congrats Ashley & Ryan, we absolutely loved doing the flowers for your wedding.  We wish you the best!!

Kailyn & Michael

Throughout the entire planning process, the one thing that was in the favor Kailyn and Michael is that “Plan B” and sometimes even “Plan C” were even better than they hoped for. From the beginning Kailyn knew she wanted a country chic wedding outdoors with black and white checks and yellow accents. Originally planning on hosting the reception on her family’s property, the logistics were costly and lead to the couple searching for alternative venues to host their wedding. Since Kailyn and Michael were out of town we would they were solely basing their decision off of the videos that we took for them, leading to the final decision of the beautiful Sunset Crest Manor. The patio overlooking Bull Run Battlefields and the barn to host their reception was the perfect setting to carry out their theme.
The entire day was full of personal touches, from the “Kiss & Park” sign as guest drove up to the personalized mugs given as favors as they left, there wasn’t a detail overlooked. Instead of wedding cake the couple chooses to serve a variety of 5 different delicious pies made by Kay of The Little Apple Pastry Shop in Aldie, Virginia. Of course the get-away car followed the color scheme, Yellow Cab of Manassas provided a black and yellow Scion with a custom congratulations sign, what a fun exit for such a fun couple! Congratulations Kailyn and Michael!

Jessica & Ryan

Jessica and Ryan married at Rockwood Manor in Dublin, Virginia on May 24, 2009. It was a beautiful day with perfect weather. The bride arrived in a vintage car, the suspense built as the car circled the gravel driveway and guests waited for her to appear. After the ceremony, guests moved to the side patio for cocktail hour before going on to the Rockwood barn for the reception for an evening of food, fun and dancing.
