I am so excited to share some favorite images in this special sneak peek of Emily and Chris’s beautiful November wedding day!  Emily had such a gorgeous vision for her wedding decor…I’m sure we’ll be borrowing a few of her ideas to use in future events!  Emily preferred not to have any satin in her linens, and opted instead for our simple ivory tablecloths draped with a gauzy table runner in a serene shade of dusty rose.  She kept her look simple and clean by choosing not to use chair sashes, and I just loved the classic, neutral, fresh wedding look of the reception room!  Emily and Chris kept their wedding party simple as well, joined by their lovely little girls who were excellent junior bridesmaids and experts at twirling in their beautiful dresses.  Hair and makeup were provided by two of our favorite local vendors – Evonne Burns Makeup Team and Andrea’s Tie the Knot Updo’s.  Emily was a breathtaking bride and it was so much fun to witness the first look she shared with her handsome groom Chris.  Chris and Emily chose to share their personal vows during their first look, after which we went for a little ride to Skyline Drive, to sneak in some gorgeous mountain photos before the ceremony began!   It was a truly beautiful day for a truly special family.  We are so grateful that we got to be a part of this Virginia wedding day…

Congratulations to the happy couple!

-xoxo Heather
