An Oatlands Romance {Elizabeth + Matt}

There's nothing quite like an autumn wedding at a mansion in the Virginia countryside. Add perfect weather, a stunning couple and charming details and you have the makings of a perfect wedding!

Beautiful blooms by Amaryllis.

 A breathtaking setting for a ceremony!

The lovely couple took time for some portraits outside on the grounds of Oatlands.

The tented reception featuring wooden farm tables, rattan chairs, natural linen table runners and lots of greenery and lush, white flowers! Another gorgeous design by Amaryllis!

A sweet cake and rustic place cards set in a bed of moss.

And guests danced long into the night . . .

Thanks to my amazing team of vendors who made this day possible!  And congratulations to the lovely Elizabeth and Matt!

Modern and Fun at The Mellon {Misty + Roby}

We absolutely love working at The Mellon! It is one of the grand, glamorous venues in the city and, as many times as we have worked there, it looks unique each and every time. We love Misty and Roby's style and the fun they brought to the space and their wedding!

Gorgeous bridal details! Who says a bride has to carry a traditional bouquet?

Off to the Mellon for photos!

And a breathtaking ceremony with floral decor by Amaryllis!

Fun horse track details for cocktails!

 The Mellon set for dinner and dancing!

Let the party begin!

Sweet dreams!

Thanks to Holland Photo Arts for the stunning images and to the entire team that made this wedding a success! Congratulations Misty and Roby!
