Elegant Hunt Country Wedding at Oatlands Plantation

Last fall, AVE planned a picture perfect wedding at Oatlands Plantation in Leesburg, VA. Vicki Grafton Photography captured this perfectly! The beautiful rentals from Paisley & Jade accented the design perfectly! Margo was the most beautiful bride and we were so happy to see Style Me Pretty agreed! You can see more pictures and the full feature on their website here!

Wedding Style!

This weekend kicked off my fall wedding season and the weather was absolutely PERFECT! I’ve noticed the craziest thing over the past 3-4 weddings I planned and attended. WOMEN WEARING WHITE?! Wait, what?? I don’t understand when/if that has become a thing, but it prompted me to write a blog post about appropriate wedding attire!

  • Check out the location of where the wedding is going to be. At a farm, vineyard, or private estate? Maybe swap those 4″ heels for wedges. I see this almost every wedding!!
  • Couples, try to coordinate your outfit! Much to my husband’s dismay I do this every time:)

The Black Tux created this awesome style guide that is 100% spot on! The Black Tux is like Rent the Runway for guys. I’ve used them for quite a few weddings and the quality and customer service is AMAZING! I’m so over boxy cuts for guys and love the modern, slim options they have! Check them out here!


Photo Shoot for Wedding Paper Divas!

Earlier this year Wedding Paper Divas approached Kristen Lynne Photography and I do style a photo shoot using some of their amazing stationery pieces. I actually used Wedding Paper Divas for my own wedding stationery! This shoot, at Early Mountain Vineyards, is one of my new favorite venues! That fireplace leaves me speechless!

The shoot was featured on Mod Weddings a few months ago.

Five Year Anniversary Shoot in Beaufort, South Carolina

This weekend Brennan and I will celebrate our five year wedding anniversary.  Man has the time flown!! We are hosting a Lowcountry Boil at the farm, with our closest family and friends! We are praying the weather holds out!

Early August my friend Rachel May Photography met us at our family home in Beaufort, South Carolina for a five year anniversary shoot! This was extra special to me since my grandparents, who have been happily married for 58 years (#relationshipgoals) were in town, and we got to have new pictures taken with them.
