Just like when they first met, Melissa & Shannon quickly fell in love with their venue. Lexington, Va.’s House Mountain Inn set the perfect September backdrop for the couple, who were looking to host a fall, country wedding. Atop the couple’s three-tiered wedding cake sat the words “Dynamic Duo”, reflecting the power pairing–as well as Melissa’s and Shannon’s love of all things superhero. This theme was reflected in details, like the comic-book-style save-the-dates (scenes from their proposal), the groom’s /best man’s processional song (Star Wars) and the superhero-titled tables. The bride’s bouquet held red roses and white calla lillies, while the bridal party’s bouquets held different shades of yellow roses with red hypericum berries. The groomsmen and groomswomen wore matching boutonnieres and wrist bracelet corsages. The decor at the ceremony and reception sites consisted of tall, glass vases with red roses and white hydrangeas, with yellow flower petals lining ceremony aisle. The two-part reception featured a s’mores bar and superhero photo props. Following the reception, attendees partied all-night-long with streaming music, a hookah bar (created from Jack Daniels bottles) and multiple games of cornhole.
It was such a pleasure working with Nannette and Charles to create their dream wedding weekend in Blacksburg, Virginia. Every aspect of the wedding was filled with personal touches from the moment that guests arrived at the hotel until they they left on Sunday after breakfast. A fun color scheme of pink and orange was carried throughout the wedding. Hanging from the doors of the Virginia Tech War Memorial Chapel were two large letters, “N” and “C” and a custom aisle runner with the couples monogram dressed up the aisle. After the ceremony guests travelled by bus to the German Club Manor for the cocktail hour and recpeiton. Hanging from the beams in the foyer of the German Club were orange and pink lanterns and custom pillows on the couches. The guest tables had white floor length linens with orange and pink criss-crossing runners and white chair covers with pink and orange organza sashes. All deocr and floral element designs were created by Diamond Events.

Mandie and Alec held both their ceremony and reception at the historic Vinton War Memorial outside of Roanoke, Virginia. The Marine wedding held true to its colors in red, blue and touches of gold. The centerpieces were tall arrangements with red roses and branches coming from the top and the low centerpieces were arrangements made of a variety of white mums wrapped in ribbon so guests were able to take a bouquet home with them. Guests also took home canned apple butter from Jamisons Orchard, what a delicious treat!
Being involved with Erin & Brett’s wedding from the very beginning, looking for venues, working with vendors and putting together a complete decor and floral package that was exactly what she envisioned, was such a pleasure and so rewarding to see it all come together. After a thorough search throughout Loudoun County and the Hunt Country area, the couple chose Rose Hill Manor to host their wedding. The ceremony was held on the back patio with bright red rose petals lining the aisle and a custom chuppah made by a family friend. The bridesmaids carried white calla lilys and Erin’s bouquet of red roses and mini white calla lilies popped in front her white wedding dress. For the reception the tables were dressed in black linens with a white embroidered overlay and red satin napkins, the chairs had a black chair cover and white satin sash. The centerpieces were groupings of white hydrangeas and submerged in the water were red LED lights which created a glow on the table during dinner. Congratulations Erin & Brett, I hope your marriage is as beautiful as your wedding!
Elizabeth and Julio married at St. Andrews Catholic Church in Roanoke, Virginia in October of 2010. Elizabeth had a very specific vision for her wedding incorporating bold tones of eggplant, burnt orange and pops of green which all came together marvelously. The reception was held at the Sheraton Hotel & Conference Center, the style and tones of the hotel were a great addition to the wedding décor. The tables were set with burnt orange pintuck linens and tall, colorful centerpieces. The menu cards designed by Diamond Events were tucked into a square napkin folded flat at each place setting. To top off the fall theme, the soup was served in a hollowed pumpkin. The guests were entertained by three different ensembles throughout the night, a Mariachi band that serenaded guests during cocktail hour and dinner, a hot salsa band that made their way from Washington D.C. to get everyone dancing and a DJ to make sure that no one went home early! And the remarkable coordinator that pulled this all of, our very own Morgan Leonard, who did a fabulous job!

Tori and Roberto had a beautiful pink and silver wedding at the stately Rose Hill Manor in Leesburg Virginia. Their ceremony and cocktail hour took place on the back patio so that guests were able to enjoy the fall temperatures outside. Afterwards guests made their way into the ballroom. The tables were dressed in light pink pintuck linens, silver satin napkins and silver chiavari chairs. The centerpieces were bright pink hydrangeas and roses in a square vase wrapped with a silver ribbon. The evening was full of fun and dancing to a wide variety of music but often times salsa, which got everyone on the dance floor and looked like so much fun! Congratulations to Tori and Roberto!
