Congratulations Julia and Nick

April 30, 2017. Category: anniversary, inspiration, rustic industrial

We love looking back at weddings, especially on first anniversaries. This lovely couple fell in love with the raw space at Long View Gallery and knew it would be the perfect location for their rustic, industrial wedding. Surrounded by family and friends, they were married in the round under a floating circle of greenery accented with industrial light bulbs. The bride’s sister and brother officiated their uniquely personal and special ceremony.

Rather than a traditional sit-down dinner, the couple had mixed seating with long communal tables and a fun lounge grouping. Sweet Root Village created lush greenery hanging overhead with bud vases of bright red ranunculus creating an inviting and intimate setting. Guests dined on unique and fun food stations and Baked & Wired cupcakes. while sipping on speciality cocktails and danced the night away!

Happy first anniversary Mr. and Mrs. DiCarlo we wish you a lifetime of love, laughter and adventure.

A Virginia Farm Wedding Filled with DIY Charm

April 21, 2017. Category: diy, inspiration, real wedding, virginia wedding, weddings

 Set in Virginia’s breathtaking farmland this wedding is filled with just the right amount of southern charm, whimsical details and DIY touches! This adorable couple knew exactly what they wanted for their wedding and Panorama Farms was the perfect blank canvas.

This crafty couple worked on many projects during their 17-month engagement here are just a few:

For the ceremony the bride spruced up the grapevine arch and ceremony chairs with various shades of peach and coral fabric that she cut them into strips herself. The result was spectacular! Especially when the wind was blowing.

Along with one of her bridesmaids (who just happened to be have a background in graphic design), the bride created a logo incorporating the barn and the couple’s initials. The logo was used on everything from their invitations to koozies, and all of signage.

The burlap runners on the tables were trimmed with fabric the couple purchased in India.

The couple made the chalkboard sign with a layout of the barn, so the guests could find the restroom or donut truck at any point throughout the night.

Congratulations Katherine and John!

April 16, 2017. Category: anniversary

When you have the pleasure of working with a couple as sweet as Kate and John and their wedding ends up being just as lovely as the couple that is an extra bonus!

The couple wanted their wedding to be both the loveliest and most logistically smooth day that their guests had ever attended – it was important to them that their wedding was beautiful, that it reflected them as people and as a couple, and that guests always knew what was happening, how, and where and in the end they just wanted it to be – lovely. and with Pippin Hill Farm and Vineyards as the venue it was a  match made in heaven!

Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Lynch, we wish you a lifetime of love, laughter and adventure!

This sweet couple’s classic wedding at the Hay-Adams was the perfect spring soirée, with a dreamy pastel palette, delicate embroidered fabrics, and timely cherry blossom accents in our nation’s capital! The bride carried an elegant bouquet of pastel-hued roses, hydrangeas, ranunculus, and garden roses by Highway to Hill that we are still swooning over!

Happy First Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Flak we wish you a lifetime of love and laughter!
