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!

Wedding Planning, Coordination, Flowers & Decor:
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!
