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.

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!

Kallie and Eric

It was so enjoyable working with Kallie in creating an elegant yet fun wine inspired wedding weekend in Loudoun County. The couple chose the Historic Whitehall Manor to host their ceremony and reception, a great Northern Virginia venue that provides multiple locations to have an outdoor ceremony and a beautiful indoor ballroom. The chance of rain weather report turned out to be in their favor with not a drop in site that Saturday afternoon. Kallie and Eric decided on seeing each other before the wedding to take most of their pictures with photographer Rick Martin so they were able to enjoy cocktail hour with their guests. Norm Voss played classical guitar as guests arrived and the adorable ring bearers carried a “Here comes the Bride” sign before Kallie walked down the aisle with her parents. Inside the room was set with light green pintuck linens and beautiful centerpieces made by Tonya Evans of Occasional Flowers. While enjoying live jazz music performed by Norm Voss, guests dined on their delicious meal prepared by Celebrations Catering. The dancing and fun quickly began as dinner came to an end, only stopping to cut the cake made by Connie of Connie’s Cake Creations. The couple danced their last dance to Time of My Life from the movie Dirty Dancing and then shuttles transported the guests back to the hotel in Leesburg to continue the fun. Mazeltov Kallie and Eric you were such a pleasure to work with!

Courtney & Mike

Growing up in a small town might give some the impression that you would have a small wedding, but this was not the case at all for Courtney and Mike. Being the only daughter to the town’s local doctor resulted in a long guest list of patients, friends, neighbors and family. To accommodate everyone the couple chose to have two receptions, their first reception immediately following the ceremony at First United Methodist Church in Pearisburg, Virginia. In order to transform the church into a more elegant and brighter space from its current dark brick and low lighting, was quite a challenge. Over 60 candles were added to the ledge above the altar and side railings, ivory fabric was hung and bright floral arrangements throughout brightened the space. The hallway and gymnasium were lined in white fabric which covered all of the walls, an amazing transformation. During the reception guests enjoyed live music by harpist Whitney Dobyns as they watched the bride and groom cut their 6 layer wedding cake by Our Daily Bread. As the first reception came to an end, close friends and family made their way to the second reception at Rockwood Manor in Dublin, Virginia. Guests were greeted by a Jazz band and southern soul food by Professional Catering. As the evening went on dance music was provided by Russel Prusak and team of RSP Entertainment. The guests were fortunate to experience wedding games and tricks played on the bride and groom, a tradition that Courtney and Mike’s good friend directed and kept everyone laughing. To end the night the couple made a grand exit out the front of the house to everyone lined with sparklers leading them to the getaway car. Congratulations Courtney and Mike, may your life together be as spectacular and fun as your wedding day!

Lindsey & Drew

The view for Lindsey and Drew’s wedding was amazing. The soothing sounds of sailboat lines clanking against their mast and a cool September breeze blowing through the air, the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. The couple picked Port Annapolis Marina to host their ceremony and reception. Located in Annapolis, Maryland along the Chesapeake Bay, the marina offers an intimate ceremony area and pavilion with striking views of the waterfront. Before the wedding the couple got to take pictures at the nearby Quiet Waters Park with photographers Andrew and Carrisa Gallo, who were great to work with and we look forward to posting some of their pictures soon!
For the reception table numbers, the couple chose movie titles (mostly Alfred Hitchcock of course) since Drew works in film. The centerpieces were simple yet elegant and put together by the bride herself. For dinner guests enjoyed a delicious buffet by Bill’s Seafood and Catering, specialty martinis and a variety of cupcakes for dessert. As guests danced the night away, paper lanterns lit the ceiling with a warm glow.
