Crystal + Ryan: An Art Nouveau-Inspired Virginia Countryside Wedding by Aaron Watson Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

Crystal and Ryan’s vintage-themed wedding was inspired by the artwork of early 1900s artist Alphonse Mucha and the Art Nouveau movement. Almost all of their paper goods, including the invitations above, featured the painting “The Flirt.” The ceremony and reception were held in Louisa County, Virginia at the private 150-acre estate Earlyhouse. Guests enjoyed their unique signature cocktail — bubble tea — and kept cool with fans throughout the summer evening. The night ended with a sparkler sendoff and a visit from Earlyhouse’s resident goose, who you can see in the full board here.

Fall Harvest Party at Bear Flag Organic Farm
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

We’re sort of in awe that it is already Thanksgiving this Thursday (and a new engagement season is upon us)!  What better way to start off the week than with Allison and Peter’s fall harvest party at one of our favorite venues: Bear Flag Farm?!  A special thanks to Shelly Kroeger for capturing these delicious photographs! Allison and Peter met in Miami, while Allison was finishing up her third year of medical school.  The pair shares a love for the outdoors and fabulous food. Their vision was to create a food-centric celebration using as much from the farm’s fields and orchards as possible.Shades of lavender, peach, apricot, tangerine, amethyst, grey, and lilac came together to create the central color palette of the day.
The reception décor was made from greenery, fruits, and flowers straight from the field!  A vibrant, abundant harvest filled the tabletops. 

Oh, but there is lots more… see the full feature by {clicking here}!

{Fall is Coming} Friday…
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

And this wedding… with all of its end of summer loveliness…totally put me in the mood!  From the DIY lavender bouquets to the pheasant feather and moss décor accents, Angela and Carson (the blissful bride and groom), had a blast planning many of the elements of their eco-friendly wedding day.  The focal point of the ceremony was a beautiful old maple tree in the groom’s backyard.  Florals hung from the branches and seventy five guests watched from hay bail seating as the couple exchanged vows.  Tennessee-based photographer, Amelia J. Moore, captured this backyard Lousiana celebration.

Eclectic, Bohemian Style Real Wedding
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Although they planned from the opposite coast, Jamie and Jake found it easy to book a venue and set a date.  When they came across Keys Creek Lavender Farm, they knew it was perfect, and they booked it without seeing it in person.  Since the lavender was in full bloom in June, the date was set for June 11th, 2011.  Such a nice sounding date, don’t you think?  They were dedicated to infusing their day with nature and their eclectic bohemian style… a look that turned out so nice…  Anjuli Paschall captured the relaxed, intimate day and all of the DIY décor!
