Intimate Mountain-Top Elopement

A good elopement gives me chills. They just scream romance to me. Two people running off to say I do? It’s just dreamy. So when they bring along the likes of Josh Gooden to capture the perfection on film, I get all sorts of excited. This beauty of an elopement at Broadhead Mountain Retreat will surely make you smile, and you can see even more of their oh-so-special day from Anna Reynal here

From The Bride…I didn’t always think that I would want to elope. It was something that I realized a couple of years ago, but before then I imagined I would do a traditional wedding with guests, tons of flowers (give me ALL the flowers), favors, dinner, brunch, bachelorettes and the whole nine yards. With Trevor and I both working in design and at times, a tad particular about aesthetics, it became clear at some point that it would be far too easy to get off track while planning a traditional wedding. It was really important that our wedding day be about the marriage and not about the place settings or the furniture rentals. Not that it’s wrong to be excited about those things. It is exciting! I’ll be the first one to say that I love a good wedding. We just decided that simple would be best for us. The moment anything became too stressful in our planning, it pretty much went out the window. I ordered my dress online for next to nothing and opted to do my own hair and makeup so that Trevor and I could just hang out together all day and keep things low-key. Eloping also allowed us to purchase a home right away, which is something that we ultimately decided was our first priority. Beginning with the end in mind and recognizing what would bring us long-term happiness was key in making this decision. Luckily, our families were incredibly supportive of our decision. We couldn’t have done it without them!

A lot of people have asked why we chose Charlottesville. We entertained lots of ideas for the location of the ceremony but we were both really happy with where we ended up. Charlottesville is an easy, three hour drive from our home in Baltimore, so it was just far enough away to feel like we were getting out of town, but close enough that we can go back and visit for anniversaries or just when the mood strikes us! The day was exactly what we hoped it would be, and we are so grateful to have these amazing memories to reflect on for years to come.

From Emily SaccoThis river wedding was deeply inspired by nature. The main table is carved out of a beautiful rock found on a river bank of Sugar Hollow located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. The flowers are plentiful and supplied by Nature Composed. Willow Knows created a one of a kind hand made gown with beautiful movement and texture The jewelry was made just for this shoot by Elaine B (there is no other ring like it- p.s. there’s a diamond on the inside of the band!) But alas my favorite element is the cathedral veil artfully crafted by twigs & honey.

Romantic Vintage-Inspired Keswick Vineyard Wedding

With a romantic garden atmosphere, a handsome Groom (rocking pink tie made by his Mother-in-Law!), and an ombre of Bridesmaids in soft blush hues, and you know this winery wedding is going to be an affair to remember. Filled with vintage details, like antique rentals from Paisley & Jade, as well as fun, retro touches, like after-dancing donuts (!), we can’t get enough of Nikki Santerre‘s gorgeous gallery right here.

From Nikki Santerre PhotographyIntimate. Timeless. Romantic. Those are the words that come to mind when I think about Amy and Brent’s wedding day. Amy’s attention to detail were both exquisite and evident in every aspect of her day at Keswick Vineyard, the location of both their wedding and one of their first dates three years before.

From The Bride… Brent and I met twelve years ago at Virginia Tech. He was my first college crush but the timing was never quite right for us. A couple of relationships and eight years later, we reconnected at our friends’ wedding. A year later we went wine tasting with that same couple. The first winery on the tour was Keswick Vineyards. Little did we know we would be getting married at that same winery three years later!

After we settled on Keswick Vineyards as our location, everything else fell into place. The beautiful Edgewood Estate offered an elegant and classic backdrop that fit my style completely. I incorporated details that reinforced the vintage theme: low centerpieces in milk glass vases, old decanters and a wooden mantle at the altar. The neutral color palette with hints of pink and gold added a touch of classic romance and vintage furniture from Paisley and Jade helped tie the look together.

My bridesmaids looked beautiful in long chiffon mismatched Lela Rose dresses and I wore a Sarah Seven gown that Sarah herself helped me pick out! To add a personal touch, my mom handmade my belt and birdcage veil, as well as the ties for Brent and his groomsmen.

The best part of the day, by far, was our first look. Being able to see and talk to Brent before the ceremony helped calm my nerves. That quiet moment alone before walking down the aisle is something I will never forget!

The day was a whirlwind and the reception went by so quickly! We loved laughing and dancing all night with our friends and family. When they weren’t on the dance floor, our guests were relaxing on lounge furniture under bistro lights while they enjoyed the cigar bar and delicious organic donuts from Carpe Donut. We finished off the night with a sparkler exit and a getaway in a classic, vintage car.

We wanted our wedding day to be filled with love and laughter; the day to be romantic and classic, full of our favorite people and all of our favorite things. In the end, that is exactly what it was and every detail was captured perfectly by our amazing photographer, Nikki.

European Garden Bridal Inspiration

Pause everything, because you’re going to want to soak up every bit of this beauty. With Michael and Carina Photography behind the lens it’s garden Bridal like you’ve never seen before. I’m talking lush florals, beautiful paper goods and one stunning dress. So, get scrolling and soak it all up in the gallery!

From Michael and Carina Photography… This dreamy bridal session is inspired by European gardens. Simple, elegant and organic. It is almost as if the bride is wandering through a secret garden, smelling the flowers and feeling the earth under her feet. The soft color tones and lush floral arrangements add to the organic feel of the photos.

This bridal session has it all: beautiful paper goods, florals and a stunning dress – and yet it is simple. Nothing is meant to overshadow the feeling of getting lost in that overgrown garden, in that smell of the blossoms…

Elegantly Blush Wedding in Williamsburg

When I first opened this wedding, I had to sit down. I needed to go through every beautifully captured image from Michael and Carina Photography, because they each, somehow, kept getting prettier. This is a wedding that will sit with you for the rest of the day. From the sweet love that surrounds this couple, to the beautiful blush tones and everything in between – this wedding is everything.

From Michael and Carina PhotographyThis wedding means the world to us. Their wedding was a celebration of happiness after having overcome many challenges together, wherein they grew closer and became an absolutely inspirational couple.

Phoebe was glowing on her wedding day. She was one of the happiest brides we have ever seen! As she put on her stunning blush-colored Monique Lhuillier gown, everyone in the room began to whisper.

The soft color palette of blush, creams and gold fit the elegant feel of the day. Little details throughout the day showed how much thought and love the couple had put into their wedding day. As the bride loves lions, there were little lions to greet the guests on the placecard table. The couple even had two custom-made lion and lioness masks which made for some neat photos! The mismatched bridesmaids dresses and the lush florals complimented the clean and fresh spring look of Phoebe and Nathan’s wedding.

The ceremony was held outside near the river. As the sun was setting the groom picked up his bride and spun her around. They danced the night away and were sent off by their friends and family through a tunnel of sparklers. It was the perfect day. Filled with love and laughter. A true celebration of unconditional love…because love conquers all.
