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.

The Clifton Inn FAM Trip

CliftonFAM_Jen Fariello Photography2

Back in December, we were lucky enough to be invited to the Clifton Inn FAM Trip!  We were definitely spoiled — we had the opportunity to stay in their luxury suites, enjoy their fine dining and really just get the full Clifton Inn experience!!!

The first night, they threw an amazing welcome dinner!  The chef prepared a delicious 5-course meal complete with wine pairings.  As we sat down to dinner, we could truly appreciate how intimate and beautiful the Clifton Inn is as a wedding venue.

Many wonderful vendors contributed to the dinner experience.  Rock Paper Scissors created the custom watercolor invitations, itineraries and menu cards.  MS Events provided all the rentals (we love their crossback chairs!) and —- decorated the space with beautiful florals. Jen Fariello Photography was there to capture all the best moments.

The next morning, we woke up to a yummy breakfast buffet and bloody mary bar!  We then set forth on a wine tour with Monticello Wine Tour & Coach Company to Jefferson Vineyards, King Family Vineyards and Pollak Vineyards with a pit stop at the artisan market Salt for lunch!

We have always cherished the Clifton Inn and the FAM Trip just confirmed our love for this beautiful and unique Charlottesville wedding venue. From the incredible cruise, breathtaking grounds and hotel, and warm and world-class service, the Clifton Inn is beyond amazing!

Fete Weddings | Rachel May Photography | Trump Winery Styled Shoot

We are so thrilled to see this classically romantic pink wedding inspiration shoot with Rachel May Photography featured on Grey Likes Weddings today! A huge thank you to the amazing group of vendors that helped put this shoot together! (See below).

Fete Weddings | Rachel May Photography | Trump Winery Styled Shoot

Held at the beautiful Trump Winery, the venue truly set the tone for this romantic styled shoot. With the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains as the backdrop, we incorporated various pinks, greens and golds as the primary palette. Soft, flowing linens and organic calligraphy (by the lovely Korie of The Weekend Type) were only a couple of the ornate elements included.

Fall Wedding Tablescape Inspiration

Fête Weddings_Wedding Planning VA_Adam Barnes Photography_Fall Wedding Tablescape8

Fall is a wondrous season.  We love the colors and the textures that come alive.  In an ode to fall, we styled an elegant fall wedding tablescape, with a twist, at a recent styled shoot with Adam Barnes Photography at Mount Ida Farm in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Fête Weddings_Wedding Planning VA_Adam Barnes Photography_Fall Wedding Tablescape4

We focused on a neutral color palette with pops of burgundy and navy and lots of texture, including plaid linen, rustic wooden details, and a luscious, organic foliage garland that ran the length of the table.  Romantic candlelight and “friends” and “family” napkin holders added a perfect touch to the table.

This table decor not only is beautiful for a fall wedding reception, but would also be ever-so-lovely for a Thanksgiving dinner!

Special thanks to Amanda Veronee who contributed the florals and DC Rental for the linen and rentals!
