I usually don’t like to compare, but this Virginia wedding, as seen by Holland Photo Arts, has more elegance than all the dance chapters of any Jane Austen novel ever (and that’s a whole lot). The soiree, designed by Easton Events, is perfect for this beautiful couple – filled with amazing flowers from Pat’s Floral Design, perfectly classic details, and all set in a ridiculously gorgeous summer setting. When you’re ready, grab a glass of your bubbliest and meet me in the full gallery!
From Easton Events … Sara and Matt were married on June 18th 2011. Their wedding was the first Easton Event at Pippin Hill, our new vineyard in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The couple share a passion for the outdoors so we worked to bring the outdoors in. The floral details emphasized slabs of cut wood, moss, lanterns, seasonal flowers, and butter yellow, hydrangea blue, and sage green. 20 foot trees twinkling with little lanterns providing a canopy over dinner and dancing.
The themes of the stations were very personalized, especially the bacon station, which hinted towards the grooms favorite food. Bacon lollipops and bacon cupcakes were a huge hit!
The beautiful thing about this June evening was that guests were able to spend time both indoors and outdoors. With the hanging lanterns, s’more pit, and a Charlottesville favorite: The Carpe Donut Cart, guests had a good reason to head outside!
As an alternative to the guest book, We created four different post cards, reflecting four key places in the couples life that were pre-addressed to the couple. Guests filled out the postcards and dropped them into the wishing well. The bride’s sister is to mail these to the couple allowing them to receive well wishes throughout their first year of marriage.
