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!
Jessica and Aaron chose the Netherlands Carillon Bell Tower near the Iwo Jima memorial in Arlington, Virginia for their ceremony, making Washington D.C. the backdrop. The weather was overcast and misty all day, but held off long enough to get have their ideal ceremony outside. The aisle was scattered with white rose petals and hanging from the edges of every other chair, were yellow paper lanterns hung on chartreuse green ribbon. Jessica’s bouquet was made with green and white hydrangeas, roses and ranunculus. The Maid-of-Honor carried a bouquet of white hydrangea and yellow ranunculus accents while the two other bridesmaids bouquets were all white hydrangea. The reception was held at the Hyatt Regency in Crystal City. The centerpieces were hydrangeas and curly willow branches coming out of a tall cylindrical vases surrounded by pillar candles. The vase was placed on top of a bed of moss with burlap runners. Congratulations Jessica & Aaron, you had such a beautiful wedding!

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.
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.
Being involved with Erin & Brett’s wedding from the very beginning, looking for venues, working with vendors and putting together a complete decor and floral package that was exactly what she envisioned, was such a pleasure and so rewarding to see it all come together. After a thorough search throughout Loudoun County and the Hunt Country area, the couple chose Rose Hill Manor to host their wedding. The ceremony was held on the back patio with bright red rose petals lining the aisle and a custom chuppah made by a family friend. The bridesmaids carried white calla lilys and Erin’s bouquet of red roses and mini white calla lilies popped in front her white wedding dress. For the reception the tables were dressed in black linens with a white embroidered overlay and red satin napkins, the chairs had a black chair cover and white satin sash. The centerpieces were groupings of white hydrangeas and submerged in the water were red LED lights which created a glow on the table during dinner. Congratulations Erin & Brett, I hope your marriage is as beautiful as your wedding!
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!

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!
