Jenna & Chris

Jenna & Chris married this past May at one of our favorite wedding venues, the Old School House in the village of Waterford (which is a National Historic Landmark) in Loudoun County Virginia. The couple chose Waterford since they had family and friends from Winchester and Northern Virginia; it was a great location in between both locations that accommodated everyone. The modern color palette of gray and yellow was a fun contrast against the countryside and stone backdrops for their pictures. Their ceremony was held in the field next to the Old School that had shepherds hooks with wildflowers lining the aisle and a white arbor and crystal chandelier as their backdrop. The day before the wedding yellow buttercup flowers popped up and covered the path leading down the aisle, how perfect is that! The guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the patio, as well as, corn hole and ring toss games in the yard, while the wedding party made their way around town taking pictures. The reception room had alternating round and square tables with gray linens, yellow napkins, gold chiavari chairs and centerpieces designed with hydrangea, spray roses, mums and snapdragons. Jenna & Chris, we wish you health and happiness in your life together, we absolutely loved coordinating your wedding and doing your flowers!

Jamie & Eric

Jamie and Eric’s wedding in tones of blush and gold was romantic and elegant. The chapel where the couple held their ceremony was commiissioned by the brides grandfather and held a special meaning for many of the guests. Large peony arrangments in blush and white decorated the altar and a custom aisle runner with rhinestone accents added the extra “bling” that the bride was looking for. After the ceremony the couple travelled in a vintage Rolls Royce to the reception at Harbour View Event Center in Woodbridge, Virginia. The tables were dressed in soft pink pintuck with gold chargers and soft, round centerpieces bursting with peonies. The chairs were covered in white chair covers tied with gold satin sashes and rhinestone buckles.

Nannette & Charles

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.

Brie & Gino

Brie and Gino were married on a rainy spring day in April. The morning of the wedding the wind and rain didn’t let up for a second, forcing us to move the ceremony inside. Miraculously, as soon as it was time for the ceremony, the clouds broke and the sun shone through giving the bride and groom time for pictures outside while the guests enjoyed cocktail hour. Flowers were designed by Angela Courser of Corsair Floral & Décor.

Mandie & Alec

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!

Elizabeth & Julio

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!
