Lauren & Sam’s Oatlands Wedding

Lauren and Sam came to us right after they booked their venue, Oatlands in Leesburg, Virginia (one of our favorite times to start working with a new couple). We helped them every step of the way, booking their caterer, guiding them with their wedding invitation wording, creating the beautiful cascading bouquet that Lauren carried down the aisle and overseeing that their entire day ran smoothly. The ceremony took place in the lower gardens at Oatlands, the peonies were blooming and the gardens were already lush and green (a real treat for early May). After the ceremony the guests made their way up the stairs to the upper gardens for cocktail hour. Guests loved mingling through the gardens and touring the property while Lauren & Sam took pictures. After cocktail hour guests made their way to the tent setup in the front lawn of the mansion. Tall centerpieces with bells of Ireland and candles suspended on the branches decorated each table. Congrats Lauren & Sam, it was a pleasure getting to know you and your family, we wish you the best in your new life together!

Tori & Roberto

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!

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!

Khanh & Ryan

Khanh contacted Diamond Events just two weeks before her wedding for Day of Coordination services… without a doubt, the shortest amount of time that we have worked with a bride, but you could tell right away that Khanh was different. Having had previous experience herself as a wedding coordinator, the couple’s wedding was full of personalized details, décor and very organized. A Day of Coordinator is exactly what this bride needed to be able to enjoy her big day, but she had to find the person to pass her “baby” off to and we were honored to accept the responsibility and ensure that their day turned out just right.
Both the ceremony and reception were held at historic Whitehall Manor in Bluemont, Virginia. The wedding just happened to fall on a peak day for fall foliage in Loudoun Virginia, making a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony and pictures. The photographer was Laura Burke of Laura Ashbrook Photography, an absolute treat to work with and we can’t wait to showcase her pictures. The aisle arrangements, bouquets and corsages were designed by Holly Heider Chapple, one of Loudoun’s most talented florists. The bridal bouquet had beautiful shades of orange, as Khanh was lucky to have one of the last clippings of the gorgeous dahlias that Holly gets locally.
As the ceremony ended guests made their way inside Whitehall Manor for cocktail hour. All of the food throughout the night was delicious and prepared by Celebrations Catering. DJ, Aaron Hahn of Horizon Entertainment did a fabulous job orchestrating music throughout the entire wedding, from the second by second ceremony entrance to the flawless announcement of the wedding party, a top notch DJ can make all of the difference! The couple chose Connie’s Cake Creations for their wedding cake, a great choice! She offers one of my personal favorites, cream cheese/butter cream icing, to die for, the guests couldn’t get enough! Congratulations Khanh and Ryan on your new life together, you did a fabulous job planning your wedding and it was such a pleasure to be a part of it!

Lauren & Theron

The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for a July wedding along the Chesapeake Bay. Lauren and Theron chose the historic Kent Manor Inn & Restaurant, in Stevensville Maryland for their wedding ceremony and reception. Kent Manor is a beautiful property with a detached reception room and gazebo overlooking the water, the property has numerous places for a photographer to create great wedding shots. The bridesmaids carried beautiful yellow bouquets created by Michael Designs, which really popped against their blue dresses. Reverend Sandra Bearden led the ceremony and afterwards guests mingled in the courtyard while enjoying cocktails and hor d’oeuvres. Guests later moved into the reception room, where Lauren and Theron began the evening with their first dance under a whimsical chandelier and fabric ceiling. The great, Evan Reitmeyer, of mydeejay.com led the evening, keeping the guests dancing all night long, what a fun night!

Zoya & Sieam

Zoya and Sieam married at the beautiful Newton White Mansion in Mitchellville, Maryland. The weather was warm with not a rain cloud in site. Family arrived at the mansion and began mingling throughout the house before making their way to the fountain courtyard, a beautiful outdoor setting for a ceremony. Bridesmaids carried pink parasols and the flower girls chanted “the bride is coming” before Zoya made her way down the steps into the courtyard.
After the ceremony, guests moved into the mansion’s atrium for the reception. R&R catering provided a delicious dinner for everyone and guests danced the evening away to DJ Khahlil. A picture perfect ending!

Jessica & Ryan

Jessica and Ryan married at Rockwood Manor in Dublin, Virginia on May 24, 2009. It was a beautiful day with perfect weather. The bride arrived in a vintage car, the suspense built as the car circled the gravel driveway and guests waited for her to appear. After the ceremony, guests moved to the side patio for cocktail hour before going on to the Rockwood barn for the reception for an evening of food, fun and dancing.
