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.

Betty & Manh

When we first met with Betty and Manh they were living in Northern Virginia while planning their wedding in Roanoke. During their engagement the couple moved to Houston for work, resulting in many Skype appointments and two jammed packed trips back to Roanoke to create a wedding weekend that blended Chinese and American wedding traditions. The morning of the wedding friends and family gathered at the groom’s house to form a caravan of cars before driving to the brides home to perform a traditional Chinese tea ceremony. Later in the day the couple held a traditional American wedding ceremony in the ballroom of the Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center with over 200 guests in attendance. Since the couple took pictures ahead of time they were able to enjoy cocktail hour with their guests. The evening continued to the sounds of RSP Entertainment while photographer Chelsa Yoder captured shots of guests on the dance floor. The five tiered Chinese flavored wedding cake was made by Cakes by Happy Eatery in Centreville, Virginia and then brought down and assembled by Diamond Events, what a task, but everyone was so appreciative it was well worth it!

Elizabeth & Steven

Both Elizabeth and Steven grew up and attend Blacksburg High School and Virginia Tech together so chosing to host their wedding in their hometown didn’t take much considerataion. The day started early at the salon to be ready in time for the 11:00am ceremony at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. After the ceremony guests made there way to the Virginia Tech German Club while the couple went around campus taking pictures with photographer Laura of Laura’s Focus Photography. The deejay and mc of the reception was the wonderful Roy Prusak of RSP Entertainment. Floral decor was provided by Best Wishes and attached to the brides bouquet was a small horseshoe that represents good luck in English tradition. A combination of great frieinds, great music and a wonderful reason to celebrate resulted in an afternoon of fun and a packed dance floor. You can view more pictures from the wedding on the Laura’s Focus Photography blog.
