Hidden Gems

I adore venues that have character. Working with different spaces can be challenging at times, but also rewarding in the sense that no two places are alike. A particular venue that comes to mind is the Williamsburg Winery, in Williamsburg, VA. 

Having some free time on my hands after being snowed in this weekend, I came across these photos of my nephew’s wedding. The memories of this day flooded in and I needed to post about it.

I love being a part of such a memorable day for all the couples I have the opportunity to work with, but when it’s family it’s extra special.

This wedding was a garden rustic theme inspired from the outdoor patio with a sort of hidden garden vibe. This intimate setting intertwined with vines and foliage made for the most romantic evening.

All these natural elements began with the grapewood center bases from which I built upon. Purple anemones, sage, rosemary, and yes, surprisingly enough sage were all incorporated into these pieces. You can also find ocean song roses, lisianthus and spray roses, green hypericum berries and a few scattered purple vanda orchids on display with moss and candles of course to set the scene.

Have a look and experience these humble memories of mine
