Last weekend, we celebrated Lauri and David’s marriage at The Commonwealth Club in Richmond, Virginia. Their traditional ceremony and classic wedding reception was one for the books and their wedding photographer, Sam Stroud was there to capture every moment. Here is one of our favorite pictures of the bride that captures her elegant style beautifully. We cannot wait to share more pictures of Lauri and David’s classic Richmond, VA wedding!
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!
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.
To discover more about the wedding event design and the couple’s love story, check out the feature on Grey Likes Weddings.
We are so excited to announce that we have been chosen as one of Virginia Living’s Top Wedding Vendors for 2016!

The magazine, out on newsstands now, also features one of our real weddings from this past spring! Joseph and JS’s wedding at a private residence in Richmond, Virginia was one of the books – the perfect combinations of true love, special surprises (the flower girl rode in on a pony!) and exuberant fun!! Their al fresco wedding was simply magical! Stop by our blog next week to see a full feature on their wedding!
In the meantime, check out some snapshots on Virginia Living’s blog and grab a hardcopy of the magazine today!!
Ronni and Pete’s modern wedding at the Rice House in Richmond, Virginia was one for the books. Not even the threat of a hurricane could stop the beautiful celebration this October! Overlooking the James River, the Rice House is a hidden, mid-century modern architectural landmark – perfect for this couple who met studying architecture at Virginia Tech! To complement the hard line minimalism of the house, we brought in vintage lounge furniture from Paisley & Jade and organic floral arrangements by Amanda Burnette. We particularly love Ronni’s custom made Carol Hannah dress and the peach, mustard and rose blooms!
We are tickled pink to have our June Veritas Vineyard wedding featured on Southern Weddings! Kelly & Chris’s wedding was absolute magic – full of cheer and color! It was a labor of love for the bride, who dreamed up the perfect pink wedding celebration!
We absolutely adore this sneak peek from our recent wedding styled shoot with Adam Barnes Photography! Originally inspired by “The Art of the Flower” exhibit at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, this styled shoot incorporated bright colors, organic paint-like textures and beautiful blooms by Whimsical Floral Design. The Market at Grelen was the perfect backdrop to mix art and nature together in a romantic and whimsical way! We cannot wait to share more!
Special thanks to our industry friends for collaborating with us:
We spent a beautiful summer evening at Keswick Vineyards last night at the Community of Charlottesville Wedding and Event Professionals party! It was great to connect with old and new friends at such a lovely setting.
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.
