The Prettiest Bridal Shoot We Ever Did See

Michael and Carina said it best: because we love beautiful florals (thank you Floral and Bloom), dresses (oh Claire!) and calligraphy (Poppy and Scooter has that covered), this bridal inspiration shoot brightens any day! Add in this ethereal lady – and Amie Decker Beauty’s talents – and I’m planning on printing these pics for myself. Only problem: where to start? I’ll be in our Vault as I try to decide

From Michael and Carina Photography… Because we always love beautiful florals, dresses and calligraphy… this soft bridal inspiration brightens any day!

Romantic Hunt Country Wedding in Virginia

In my humble opinion, there is nothing more heartwarming than an intimate wedding. Take this romantic fete tucked away in the mountains of Northern Virginia. Complete with rolling hills, spectacular views and sunny yellow flowers, Kristen Lynne captured every detail right here!

From Kristen Lynne Photography….Tucked away in the mountains of Northern Virginia, Aden and Steve hosted their intimate wedding at the Goodstone Inn. The entire property was reserved for their family and friends as they celebrated over an incredible weekend.

Aden got ready in the gorgeous Manor House along with her bridesmaids and man of honor as her groom, Steve, got ready in the lovely Spring House. The spring sunlight filled the rooms as the excitement stirred up for the ceremony!

Aden and Steve said their vows with the rolling hills and Goodstone farm in the background. What a spectacular view for their guests on this perfect wedding day. Yellow sunflowers accented the bridesmaids blue dresses, which were the perfect match for Aden’s “something blue” Jeffery Campbell shoes!

The vintage equestrian theme was perfect for Aden’s style and paired seamlessly with the rural Hunt Country venue. The guests enjoyed an outdoor, tented cocktail hour followed by a lovely plated dinner and lots of fun dancing! As the sun set the lights under the tent came on and provided a romantic scene to wind down the evening.

From the surprise mariachi band to the mini margaritas (yes, please!) that followed, every capture from the lens of Abby Jiu is fit for a modern-day fairytale and you can see it all here!

From Strawberry Milk Events… Kristen and Kevin were married in Middleburg, Virginia at the oh-so-charming Goodstone Inn & Estate, in wine and horse country. The wedding party took over the 265 acre estate for the weekend – which consists of 6 historic guest houses spread all over the property, with a total of 18 bedrooms. All are impeccably furnished in elegant French and English cottage decor. Although only an hour south of D.C., guests felt like they were a world away. Guests enjoyed the heated pool with breathtaking views of the blue ridge mountains, hiking, canoeing, visiting the working farm, gardens, acclaimed farm to table restaurant, etc. The couple was married in front of the gorgeous ivy-covered stone wall – the ruins of the estate’s original mansion.

Kristen donned a stunning Carolina Herrera gown. After the ceremony, guests passed through the ivy wall “door” to poolside cocktail hour hour where local fare such as mini Virginia ham biscuits were served. The bar featured “his and hers” cocktails – the Tequila Sparkler and the Gentleman’s Old Fashioned. The wedding reception was a fun contrast to the “au natural” setting of the Inn – a very elegant yet fashion forward cocktail style style reception featured a custom, graphic black and white dance floor, oversized crystal chandelier and lots of gold and mirrored furniture.

Florals in shades of pink were lush and in true garden style to tie in the surroundings. The reception had mixed seating (bar height tables, low cafe tables and lounge furniture) with stations of yummy local food such as heirloom tomato salad, spring vegetable risotto, roasted organic chicken, seared scallops and prime rib – most of which is sourced right from the farm! At sunset, the couple stole away for a private moment to read letters they had written to one another earlier that day. Sound Connection from Andy Kushner Entertainment kept the dance floor packed and the party going! Later in the evening, a surprise mariachi band serenaded guests while wait staff passed out mini margaritas.
