Mary Beth & Chris
The Wedding of Mary Beth & Chris was an absolutely gorgeous Richmond affair. The couple, both born and raised in RVA, wanted to really show off their hometown to their family and friends. In addition, they wanted to showcase the symbol of the peacock, a symbol of integrity, holiness, guidance, protection, nobility and watchfulness – wonderful qualities to place at the foundation of your marriage. They were married at the beautiful and historic Cathedral of the Sacred Heart with 300 of their closest family and friends in attendance.
The reception immediately followed the ceremony at The Commonwealth Club with an emerald green and gold theme. Floral arrangements had hints of peacock feathers and peacock colorings, and custom signage with blue, emerald and gold added a personalized and elegant touch to the affair! Guests enjoyed dancing the night away to Big Ray and the Kool Kats and smoking cigars made here in Richmond. Finally, at the end of the night, the couple was showered in confetti!
Liz & Rob
The Wedding of Liz & Rob was the most perfect outdoor extravaganza you have ever seen. Liz fell in love with Charleston during her time there in college and wanted to bring the beautiful, laid back beauty of Charleston to her family home in Powhatan, Virginia. While we couldn’t ship in Spanish Moss, we could bring oysters, rocking chairs, bistro lighting and much more!
The ceremony was done in the foundation layout of the old hotel that once stood on the land. After the ceremony the guests were greeted with an oyster bar with a man shucking oysters, delicious cocktails, adirondack & rocking chairs, and soft guitar music. After cocktail hour, guests were ushered under magically lit trees that led into a peaked tent where they dined on classic southern favorites like collard greens and beef tenderloin. After dinner, everyone danced the night away and capped the evening with a traditional sparkler send-off for the couple!
Kelly & Brian
Kelly & Brian, college sweethearts, really wanted to embrace the city of Richmond with artistic flare. They had their beautiful ceremony with touches of magnolia at the historic Monumental Church. After their ceremony which was full of love and family, Kelly and Brian held their reception at The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
They used every available inch of the museum – from pictures in the garden to cocktail hour in the atrium to the seated dinner reception in the marble hall. They embraced the grand staircase where they made their entrance and danced the night away! Instead of a wedding cake, they had cupcakes from Pearl’s Cupcake Shoppe. Gold & peach shone throughout the centerpieces, bouquets and even the hall itself! They ended the night with a glow stick send-off (a great alternative to sparklers) and then headed on to their after party to keep the fun going!
Ocelia & Daniel
Ocelia & Dan were such a fun couple to work with! They were married at Ocelia's Godparents home, which is also a local B&B in Gloucester County. They fell in love with the view of the water and the beautiful trees that covered the property as well as the fond memories Ocelia had from her childhood. During the planning process, they really took the time to infuse their wedding with artistic and musical undertones to fit their unique personalities.
For the ceremony, they had unique and fun aspects like a guest book using a typewriter for guests to type a message to the bride and groom. The reception was held under lighting without a tent. They had acclaimed Jazz singer Emy St. James as their entertainment and later switched to a DJ for late night dancing. They spent the night under the stars enjoying their favorite foods and enjoying the company of their friends. It was a perfect evening and truly reflected the couple’s unique sense of style.
