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!

Mica & Ryan

Mica and Ryan had a colorful pink and yellow summer wedding at Rose Hill Manor in Leesburg, Virginia. The new pagoda hung with paper lanterns was the perfect back drop for their ceremony on the back patio. The escort cards were displayed in wooden boxes with a layer of moss and silver wire spiraled to hold each person’s card. The centerpieces for the guest tables were mason jars with yellow sunflowers, roses, gerbera daisies, hypericum berries and billy balls fitting perfectly with the summer theme.

Kailyn & Michael

Throughout the entire planning process, the one thing that was in the favor Kailyn and Michael is that “Plan B” and sometimes even “Plan C” were even better than they hoped for. From the beginning Kailyn knew she wanted a country chic wedding outdoors with black and white checks and yellow accents. Originally planning on hosting the reception on her family’s property, the logistics were costly and lead to the couple searching for alternative venues to host their wedding. Since Kailyn and Michael were out of town we would they were solely basing their decision off of the videos that we took for them, leading to the final decision of the beautiful Sunset Crest Manor. The patio overlooking Bull Run Battlefields and the barn to host their reception was the perfect setting to carry out their theme.
The entire day was full of personal touches, from the “Kiss & Park” sign as guest drove up to the personalized mugs given as favors as they left, there wasn’t a detail overlooked. Instead of wedding cake the couple chooses to serve a variety of 5 different delicious pies made by Kay of The Little Apple Pastry Shop in Aldie, Virginia. Of course the get-away car followed the color scheme, Yellow Cab of Manassas provided a black and yellow Scion with a custom congratulations sign, what a fun exit for such a fun couple! Congratulations Kailyn and Michael!

Ashley & Jeremy

Recent Radford University graduates, the cute duo chose to host their nuptials at the Thrasher Memorial United Methodist Church located in Vinton, Virginia, a small town on the northeastern outskirts of the City of Roanoke. Immediately following the ceremony, the guests made their way across the street to the elegant Vinton War Memorial. The grand ballroom was decorated in colors of periwinkle, yellow and white and was matched by the simple yet tasteful glowing floral centerpieces that were created by Jim Taetz of Crystal Orchard. Ashley’s sorority sang their traditional song to her followed by Jeremy’s fraternity serenading Ashley in beautiful harmony. The mouthwatering dinner was catered by Blue Ridge Catering and the beautiful cake was created by Lisa Link. Matt and Matt of RSP Entertainment played great tunes that had everyone up on their feet. As the evening came to a close the guests formed a line outside of the front entrance and blew bubbles as Jeremy escorted Ashley to their get-away-car.

Lauren & Theron

The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for a July wedding along the Chesapeake Bay. Lauren and Theron chose the historic Kent Manor Inn & Restaurant, in Stevensville Maryland for their wedding ceremony and reception. Kent Manor is a beautiful property with a detached reception room and gazebo overlooking the water, the property has numerous places for a photographer to create great wedding shots. The bridesmaids carried beautiful yellow bouquets created by Michael Designs, which really popped against their blue dresses. Reverend Sandra Bearden led the ceremony and afterwards guests mingled in the courtyard while enjoying cocktails and hor d’oeuvres. Guests later moved into the reception room, where Lauren and Theron began the evening with their first dance under a whimsical chandelier and fabric ceiling. The great, Evan Reitmeyer, of led the evening, keeping the guests dancing all night long, what a fun night!
