Bohemian Soiree

Morgan and David’s fall wedding at Chantilly Farm was the epitome of bohemian chic. The eclectic event featured bold colors and vintage touches—from the bridal attire to the festive décor. Even the bride’s “something blue” shoes had that boho feel, in ethereal turquoise and gleaming silver.

The bridal party wore bright dresses and bow ties that complimented their bouquets and boutonnières, respectively. The vivid flowers held pops of red, purple, yellow and orange. During the ceremony, against a breathtaking backdrop that overlooked Floyd County, stood a birchwood arbor decorated in fall flowers. In addition to the archway, these flowers also lined the aisles on suspended hooks. In the barn reception, fun fuschia tablecloths, shimmering gold runners, and the regal navy napkins complimented the floral decor.

Equally as bohemian as the color scheme were the event’s vintage elements, which included framed family photos and colored glassware. The lightheartedness of the bohemian wedding continued in the treats that guests enjoyed. The couple celebrated their wedding with a Krispy Kreme donut cake with wooden versions of them on top. “All you need is love or maybe a donut,” proclaimed a nearby sign. As guests danced the night away, they were able to re-energize at the customizable popcorn bar.

Morais Vineyard & Winery Wedding

Sometimes when it is 30 degrees outside the best thing to do is “think spring” right?!  Browsing through images of the weddings that we have done and I came across this oh so colorful orange and green wedding with tropical touches at Morais Vineyards & Winery in Bealton, Virginia.  The ceremony took place outdoors with the pergola, which was decorated with strands of crystals and orange Mokara orchids.  The ballroom looked stunning with orange crush linens that had an iridescent shine and provided just the right contrast to the the arrangements which were mostly green flowers with pops or orange.  Last but least, the gorgeous cake!  The flowers used included dahlias, Mokara orchids, spray roses, hydrangea, tick dianthus, hypericum berries and amaranthus.

Katie & Austin’s Stone Tower Winery Wedding

Katie & Austin found the perfect place to host their rustic, elegant wedding within the rolling hills of Leesburg at Stone Tower Winery. In addition to tours and tastings, the local, Loudoun County winery offered the perfect venue for the couple’s outdoor wedding.

Katie and her ladies-in-pink were able to get ready at the venue, with the winery’s beverages on hand. They offered the bride a toast before she walked down the aisle.

Following their vineyard-side ceremony, the couple were able to give their guests a unique, al fresco dining experience. Katie, Austin and their guests sipped signature limoncellos at long tables, under twinkling light strings.

After an evening of dancing, laughter, and celebration, guests sent the lovebirds off to married life through a myriad of sparklers.

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.

Dayne & Corey

Dayne & Corey chose the historic Rockwood Manor to host their spring wedding near Blacksburg, where Dayne grew up. The weather was breezy but the sun was shining and the skies were clear. As guests arrived they gathered in the font yard before making their way down to the ceremony location on the side of the house. Long strands of organza fabric was hung from the trees behind the ceremony stage to create a dramatic backdrop. The bridesmaids carried bouquets of blush pink garden roses that popped off of their green dresses and the groomsmen wore gray suits with pink calla lily boutonnieres. Cocktail hour was held on the side patio and guest enjoyed beverages in mason jars with paper straws and delicious appetizers provided by Blue Ridge Catering. Afterwards guests moved under the pole tent to find their seats. The low arrangements were hydrangea, eucalyptus, spray roses and calla lilies in birch cylinder vases. Dayne had carefully chosen her color palette of seafoam green, pond, jade and peony which was carried throughout the event and even to the seafoam green chiavari chairs. There were so many fun details to capture, sparklers, origami flowers, menu signs, mason jar lanterns, wedding cake, oh my! Congratulations Dayne & Corey what a beautiful wedding!
