Tara and Nathan were married at Blue Ridge Vineyard in Eagle Rock, VA on November 2. Tara looked stunning in an A-line flowy chiffon gown complete with a lace shawl and her soft wavy hair parted to one side. She carried a fall bouquet of hypericum berries, roses, and wildflowers, tied with plum-colored ribbon and lace. Her ‘maids opted for mix-and-match plum dresses, while the groom and his men wore black suits complete with festive fall ties. The pair exchanged vows in front of just 80 friends and family members under a pergola on the vineyard lawn on a beautiful fall day. “Our long-time family friends own Blue Ridge Vineyard and we were lucky to have [our wedding] there – it was a stunning backdrop,” Tara said of the venue. A rustic-inspired reception followed on the patio, where guests sat at wooden tables covered in tan linens and accented with gold plates and plum napkins. Each table featured a mason jar centerpiece containing tree branches and bird seed favors. “Rustic, natural, low key,” Tara said about the event. “We wanted it to be about the people we love. A good crowd makes for a good event.” Dessert consisted of cannolis, homemade by the bride’s grandmother and aunt, which was nod to the bride’s heritage. Guests danced the night away and had a memorable evening. Tara was extremely grateful or her friends and family. “This entire event could not have happened without the help of friends and family. That’s also what made it so special for Nate and I.” See the full board here.

Jodi and Michael were married at The Lesner Inn in Virginia Beach, Va. on October 4. The bride looked stunning in a chiffon gown complete with a bejeweled illusion neckline. She wore her hair in a low curly bun and accessorized with a crystal headband. She carried a bouquet of  ivory and pink roses and white hydrangeas. Her ‘maids donned various blush chiffon dresses. The groom looked handsome in a classic black tuxedo and a white rose, hydrangea, and feather boutonniere. “Being that we got married in early October, we were super lucky to have one of the last warm days of the season,” Jodi said of their wedding day. The couple tied the knot overlooking the water in front of just 80 guests. They sat in white folding chairs and looked on as Jodi and Michael exchanged vows in front of a white altar adorned with flowers and tulle. The aisle was marked with ribbon-clad mason jars filled with white and pink floral arrangements. “The view of the water served as a lovely backdrop for our ceremony as well as our reception,” Jodi said. At the reception, guests sat at round tables with white and burlap linens. “A lot of the items in the wedding were repurposed. The votives holding the ivy were once candles that burned in our home over the course of our engagement,” Jodi said of the reception decor. The decorated champagne bottles and mason jars, among other items, were recycled from previous wedding-related events. As favors, guests were given the couple’s favorite candies including Twix and Gummie Bears. The wedding cake was a three-tier white cake adorned with sugar pearls. Jodi advises couples to keep things in perspective while planning. “At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is you and your partner giving your promise to love each other forever.” See the full board here.

Stacy and Matt were married at Morais Vineyards and Winery in Bealeton, VA on September 6. The bride looked stunning in a strapless ruched mermaid gown with a ruffled skirt and flower beading on the bodice. She donned her hair in a curly side ponytail and accessorized with a brooch. She carried a bouquet of chocolate cosmos, ruby dahlias, ivory roses, purple stock, two-tone calla lilies, green amaranthus, and seeded eucalyptus. The groom and his men opted for light gray suits and bow ties. The couple tied the knot outside as guests looked on from white folding chairs lined with floral arrangements in brass cone stands. “It was a hot day at the vineyards, though everyone was in high spirits because it was supposed to rain and never did,” Cavin, the photographer, said of the day. Two adorable flower girls and ring bearer also participated in the ceremony.  A reception followed inside where guests were greeted by a welcome table displaying a wine barrel card box. Guests sat at round tables with white linens, purple napkins, and floral arrangements in tall gilded vases. Drinks were served in green miniature bottles covered in gold glitter. “The toasts were brilliant and the bride and groom were full of energy and love during their reception events,” Cavin recalled. For dessert guests enjoyed cupcakes with purple sugar toppers. See the full board here.

Hannah and Ryan were married at the Blue Ridge Mountains in Buena Vista, Va on May 9. Hannah looked radiant in her embroidered short-sleeve dress and adorned her wavy hair with a beautiful floral crown. The groom opted for a casual look with a newsboy cap, white button-down shirt, and green bow tie. “It was so surreal. And nerve wracking! We made it to our spot and were blown away at how pretty it was,” Hannah said of their ceremony location. No guests attended their nuptials, it was just the photographer, her assistant, and the officiant in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The officiant read something the couple had written together to open the ceremony. Hannah and Ryan then read the vows they had written for one another. After the knot was officially tied, they enjoyed a picnic in a clearing in the mountains, complete with a cake of course! “We basically picked the things that were most important to us and decided to forget about the rest!” At the picnic, Ryan gave Hannah a belated engagement ring. How adorable? Following their private picnic, they went out to eat in Charlottesville and called family and friends to share the news. “Do what makes you happy as a couple and don’t worry too much about anything else,” Hannah advised. “Write everything down so you don’t forget any little details about your wedding day!” What a simple and lovely sentiment. See the full board here.
