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!

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!

A beautiful fall wedding in Old Town Alexandria, the ceremony was held at historic Christ Church built more than 235 years ago. Afterwards, guests were able to walk a few blocks to the reception at Lee Fendall House. The rustic and simple, green and yellow color scheme was carried throughout the event. The cocktail tables had clusters of yellow freesia in mason jars wrapped with raffia ribbon. There were two different designs for the centerpieces. The first was a cluster of mostly white hydrangea with yellow calla lily & snapdragon accents, placed in a square vase with lime slices. The second design was yellow snapdragons, green hydrangea and white dahlias in a cylinder vase with an aspedistra leaf swirled inside. Lanterns and candles scattered throughout the tent provided a romantic glow as nightfall set in. Congrats Shannon & Paul, what a great wedding!!!
