Ashley & Ryan

We are still catching up on blog posts from our 2016 weddings but super excited to finally show you the amazing images from Ashley and Ryan’s wedding at Bluemont Vineyard that were taken by Bekah Kay Photography.  Now let me tell you, these are two of the kindest, coolest people you will ever meet. They have a large group of loyal and fun friends which made the entire day a complete joy and fun to be around.  Getting married in November means you never quite know what to expect from the weather but this day in November was gorgeous, the sky was so clear you could see for miles and provided a beautiful backdrop.  For the outdoor ceremony, we setup a chuppah and attached her father’s tallit, it was such a personal touch and really created a dramatic focal point in front of the blue sky.   Ashley carried a stunning cascading bouquet that we absolutely loved making.  Her bouquet had a variety of all purple flowers and greenery that included cool water roses, mokara orchids, freesia, calla lilies and variety of eucalyptus.  The centerpieces were two different designs, one floral arrangement with a variety of textures and fall tones that included dahlias, mums, marigolds, scented geranium and greenery and the other a distressed ivory lantern with greenery and flower blooms surrounding it.  The shades of purple with orange and ivory accents, went perfect for a fall wedding.  Congrats Ashley & Ryan, we absolutely loved doing the flowers for your wedding.  We wish you the best!!

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!

Kristyn and Evan

We are SO excited to share today’s wedding with you!!! This fall has been FULL of amazing couples and as we begin to receive their pictures over the next few months, we will have a lot of pretty to share:)

Kristyn and Evan were such a joy to work with!! They planned their wedding to a “t” and knew exactly what they wanted but as a smart DIYer, they knew they were going to have to step back, relax and entrust an extra pair of hands the day-of their wedding to make their dream a reality.

We LOVE working at Whitehall Manor in Bluemont, Virginia; not only does it have historic charm and gorgeous views of the Loudoun country side, the owner and venue coordinator, Douglas, is a top notch professional and master of weddings!! Whitehall Manor is one of the most well run venues in the entire Washington DC area and their staff always does an incredible job and I can’t forget to mention how delicious their food is. I highly recommend their catering services!!!:)

To make the most of their budget we repurposed the bridesmaid bouquets as centerpieces during the reception.   The arrangements that hung along the aisle on shepherds hooks were also reused as centerpieces.   One advantage that our clients receive, is that when we are onsite throughout the entire wedding, we can repurpose the flowers and decor as the event transitions from one space to another.

I’m SO grateful Kristyn & Evan trusted me to help bring their wedding day to life!!  Enjoy!!

Goodstone Inn

We had the pleasure of attending an event at the Goodstone Inn & Restaurant in Middleburg this week. The beautiful estate is located on 265-acres in the heart of horse country. Rolling pastures surrounded by picturesque mountains and cozy cottages makes the perfect destination for those looking to experience the true feel of hunt country and gracious southern hospitality. There are several locations throughout the property to host a wedding. For larger weddings (up to 200 people) you can rent the entire property, using the ivy covered facade as a backdrop for the ceremony, the charming carriage house for cocktail hour and a tented reception overlooking the rolling fields and Virginia mountains. Weddings with a maximum of 125 guests can use the lawn adjacent to the French Farm cottage (which is so adorable) and for smaller weddings with less than 75 guests, the reception can take place in the courtyard of the 1940′s stone Manor House.  No matter which location is chosen, they guarantee that no other weddings will be taking place on the property the same weekend.

The catering is done onsite with a focus on fine dining by Executive Chef Benjamin Lambert.  The menus have a predominant Farm to Table emphasis with many of the vegetables and herbs grown onsite or sourced from local gardens and farms.

For more information or to schedule a site tour, contact Event Coordinator Dana Henry dhenry@goodstone.com 540-687-3333.

Jenna & Chris

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!

Susan & Bill

Susan and Bill were married at Whitehall Manor on a beautiful day in September. Each detail of the day had been carefully chosen, so the flowers and linens were each the perfect shade to tie together their fall wedding in Loudoun, Virginia. The tables had tall arrangements of white hydrangea, roses, lilies and grapes, with bear grass swirled inside the vase.
