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!

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!

Erika & Sam

An Easter wedding at Woodend Sanctuary, a property of the Audubon Naturalist Society in Chevy Chase, Maryland. The flowers were all pink with tulips as the centerpieces and large Cherry Blossom branches for the display arrangements. The bridal bouquet was all monochromatic shades of pink in peonies, David Austin roses and tulips! Diamond Events installed pink and white lanterns in the ceiling of the tent, providing soft lighting overhead throughout the entire reception. Congrats Erika & Sam, what a beautiful spring wedding!

Tiffany & James

Tiffany and James are an adorable couple. Tiffany’s mom Sandie worked with Diamond Events to bring together the couples creative vision of an outdoor tent wedding at the historic Oakland Green Farm and Bed & Breakfast in Loudoun County. The property makes a lovely weekend getaway for a wedding. Friday night the bride and bridesmaids spent the night in the Oakland log cabin built in the 1730’s. In the morning the girls were treated to a delightful breakfast and shortly after the hairstylist met them onsite to begin updo’s. Roger Canada of Broadleaf photography had plenty of time to take the groomsmen and later the bridesmaid’s pictures all around the property for some great shots.
Just as we thought the day progressed without a hitch, the wind began to blow in and the rain started to pour an hour before guests arrived. For an outdoor wedding, the doppler radar is a must! The couple chose to wait out the storm and wait for a break in the clouds before starting their ceremony. Only a few minutes behind schedule, the bride left the log cabin with her dad by her side to meet James at the end of the aisle. It was a beautiful ceremony that was almost complete before the clouds returned and the rain again began pouring. Everyone quickly gathered their things and moved under the tent for the couple to finish their vowels and seal their love with a kiss! They were finally married!
The rain eventually left and Roger Canada was able to get some great shots of the wedding party with their umbrella’s, I can’t wait to see the final results! Jason Reeves of Market Salamander did an amazing job in carrying through the romantic design of the couple’s wedding invitations, Splendid Swirls by Wedding Paper Divas. Not only did it look beautiful, it tasted incredible as well! The flowers by Holly Chapple Flowers were amazing. The table centerpieces varied between the square vases filled with lime slices, along with a unique cylindrical vase swirled with pink tulips. The only word to describe the buffet arrangement is breathtaking!
At the end of the night the couple was treated to a sparkler exit before making their way back to the cabin. Even with a little rain, they weren’t going to let the dampness ruin their spirits! Congrats Tiffany and James, I hope you carry your cheery disposition and determination on to everything you do together!
