Grey Likes Weddings Feature

Kelly & Chris - June 20th, 2015 - Vertias Winery

We adored Kelly and Chris’s romantic coral wedding vision, and we absolutely love that Grey Likes Weddings does too!  Kelly and Chris were married last June at Veritas Winery in Afton, Virginia.  Although the images from Jodi Miller Photography look picture perfect, the weather was not our best friend on the day.  But that is one of the fabulous things about holding your wedding at Veritas, the rain plan in the main ballroom is beautiful, and they have a backup generator!  The happy couple and their guests didn’t even know we lost power during the evening!

Kelly & Chris - June 20th, 2015 - Vertias Winery

The wedding was a complete labor of love for the bride, who dreamed up the most gorgeous pink and coral whimsical with a large dose of southern flair!  We loved helping Kelly execute her dream wedding!  Southern Blooms created the most magical florals, and Goodheart Design was a revelation with her custom watercolor letterpress invitations and paper goods.

Bohemian Wedding Inspiration at Lionheart Resorts

Photo by Amelia Johnson Photography | Fête Weddings | Bohemian Inspired Styled Shoot

This bohemian wedding inspiration shoot was truly inspired by the venue. We visited Lionheart Resorts and absolutely fell in love with it’s natural beauty and picturesque landscape. Sprawling over 300 acres in Cumberland, Virginia, Lionheart Resorts offers lush woodlands, beautiful campgrounds and wide-open fields. And some pretty cute llamas!

We chose a palette of bold jewel tones – golden yellow, fuchsia and emerald – combined with delicate, soft pinks and purples. We thought using these rich tones would look gorgeous against the warm, natural colors of the environment. We layered patterns, natural textures and other organic details to express a bohemian spirit that is wildly elegant.

Amelia Johnson was there to capture all the beauty of the day, and we are so in love with her gorgeous photographs!  We are beyond excited that the shoot is featured on Style Me Pretty today – view the full feature here.

One of our favorite locations on the property is the old barn, perfect for a ceremony. The space offers an elegant and rustic beauty, and we crafted a fun, colorful backdrop to fit the bohemian style.

Late Winter Romance: Pink and Gold Wedding Inspiration

gold-strapless-wedding-gown-2

With spring right around the corner, we have been daydreaming of warmer weather and brighter colors.  As an ode to winter though, we are reminiscing about our late winter romance styled shoot with Elisa Bricker Photography and an incredible team of vendors from a few years back.  Set outdoors at the historic Berkeley Planation, this shoot exuded enchantment.  We chose a beautiful palette of soft pinks and golds that added to the dreaminess of the day.

Jenn of Nature Composed created the most gorgeous and luscious floral arrangements with pops of pink combined with purple and cream hues.  We decorated one of our absolute favorite wedding tablescapes with delicate pink and gold rentals from Stonegate Rentals and Classic Party Rentals and the sweetest french macaroons (oh la la!).

We absolutely adore the touches of gold, like the bride’s stunning Monique Lhuillier dress.  The skirt looked like the most beautiful gold confetti!  On the hazy grey winter day, the sparkling golds woven throughout really added an extra dose of romance and elegance.

Take a sneak peek into spring while remembering the best of winter with this pink and gold wedding inspiration.  See the full feature on Snippet & Ink!

xoxo, The Fête Ladies

Sophisticated Valentine’s Day Wedding Ideas

Fête Weddings_Wedding Planning VA_Rachel May Photography_Valentine Wedding Inspiration_9

Valentine’s Day is not strictly for a red and pink color palette or heart-shaped everything. If you are prepping for your own Valentine’s Day wedding this Saturday, don’t settle for an overused Valentine’s Day theme. Instead, take a look at our sophisticated Valentine’s Day wedding ideas from our styled shoot with Rachel May Photography, as featured on United With Love.

Fête Weddings_Wedding Planning VA_Rachel May Photography_Valentine Wedding Inspiration_3.jpg

For this wedding inspiration, we wanted to capture the essence of Valentine’s Day without drowning in color overload. We worked with accent and complementary colors to bring out the best of the reds and pinks. To soften the vibrancy of the red, we chose soft colors like mint green, peach and white with some pops of yellow and gold.

Candy Valley Cake Company and For The Love Of Chocolate created a fabulous spread of meringues, mini cakes, truffles and marshmallows.
