We hare in love with the military wedding goodness Rachael Foster Photography was able to capture in Virginia. The bride and groom combined traditional wedding elements with family heirlooms — a garter made by the bride’s mama, a family locket, and photos of both families. The groom’s cake was an ode to his military career, and the gorgeous stained glass windows of the church where they wed happened to be the childhood church of the bride!
Today we have winery wedding goodness for y’all from M. Chase Narratives, New Kent Winery, and some other amazing wedding vendors we love, both locally and nationally! Bridesmaids dressed in blue J. Crew, a classic brick church, and accents of white blooms and baby’s breath everywhere… we know you’re going to love this as much as we do!
We love this classic Virginia wedding from Rebecca Keeling Studios. Cristina and Jacob’s celebration included a palette of neutrals, white and silvery blooms, and accents of steel blue and blush. And the entire day was set against the gorgeous backdrop of a historic Southern mansion. Cristina, the bride, shares: “There just something about pronouncing your love and commitment to each other in front of everyone you care about.” We can’t agree more, y’all, and this wedding is just darling!
We have one word for this Smithfield Plantation wedding from Katie Estes Photography: adore. From their adorable pup to the bride’s lace wedding gown and the colorful leaves, this southern wedding is just beautiful. Autumn leaves adorned their wedding cake, the bridesmaids wore olive green, and everything is just lovely.
From Katie Estes Photography: “Christine and Michael’s wedding was full of charm! The bride got ready at her parents’ house, which was nestled up in the mountains of Southwest Virginia. After the groom arrived and we had taken several sweet photographs on the family land, the wedding party moved to the Smithfield Plantation Pavilion for the ceremony. The fall leaves were in full color, providing a beautiful backdrop. The reception, held at VCOM II at Virginia Tech, was also full of southern charm with corncake placeholders, pulled pork, and sweet tea. Did I mention that the bride was super crafty? She made her own veil, invitations, bouquets for the wedding party, AND the homemade limoncello favors!” Congratulations, Christine and Michael!
Hear about the Virginia wedding day goodness from Sheaulee Ng Photography: “Cassie and Jeff tied the knot at the Doubletree Hotel in Virginia. This wedding was “extra” special to me, not only because Cassie and Jeffrey are such an endearing and sweet couple, but also because I have known Jeffrey’s family for over 15 years.
This classic and traditional southern wedding of course was one of my favorites. When I spoke with Cassie after the wedding, she said Jeff’s impromptu performance of One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful,” was hands down her favorite part of the day. I think I speak for everyone at the wedding that I can’t listen to that song without thinking about Jeffrey and his groomsmen serenading Cassie on the dance floor, with sunglasses and all.
It was hard to top the “boy band” performance, but the entire day was truly amazing. Cassie prepped for the day with her girls and champagne, and calmed her nerves by having her parents come visit. Each detail was handpicked by Cassie, including the magnolia she wore in her hair, the “the flower of the South” that represents purity.
The ceremony was held outdoors, and it was not complete without their furbaby, Leo, walking down the aisle with them. He is such a cutie, and did so well during the ceremony! Of course we needed some post ceremony shots with him as well; they were officially a family!” Congratulations, Cassie and Jeffrey and Leo!
