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!

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!

Jessica & Matt

Jessica and Matt’s wedding at the Deerpark Restaurant on the Biltmore Estate was gorgeous and romantic. The deep tones of purple combined with lush and over the top floral centerpieces set the tone for this elegant affair. The ceremony was held in the center courtyard and afterwards guests made their way into the Lodge Room for cocktail hour while the wedding party went to the Biltmore mansion for pictures. When they were finished the wedding party came back to be announced into the courtyard and Jessica and Matt had their first dance together as husband and wife. The night continued with delicious food and dancing under the starlit sky, what a fun evening!
