We’re back with oodles of more pink and purple wedding inspiration from two darling lovebirds Heather and Ian, who hosted their Washington DC area wedding at Lost Creek Winery in Virginia. (Before you go on though, make sure you check out their outdoor wedding ceremony!!) The rustic wedding flowers, deep purple bridesmaid dresses and beautiful bouquets created a sweet sense of romance in the couple’s wedding design, and paired with dapper grey, the groom and his groomsmen complimented the ladies flawlessly! I can’t get enough of this fashionable couple and their bridal party friends! The talented Nicki Metcalf Photography captured the duo in a few private moments among the vines at this vineyard wedding before the group headed inside for dancing, dinner and some deliciously decorated wedding cake!
From Heather: Our top two concerns were entertainment and photography. We wanted to make sure everyone had a great time, and we wanted fabulous wedding photos to have for the rest of our lives. Our DJ we saw at a friend’s wedding and knew he was awesome. Our photographer is a good friend from college and an old-coworker of mine. Everything else we tried to budget on. We skipped wedding favors!
Heather gave some great advice for DC area engaged couples:
Your wedding day is supposed to be one of the best days of your lives, right? We got married around the same time as many of our friends, and they could not stop saying “I can’t wait for it to be over” during the planning period. Planning can be stressful, but why get married if you just can’t wait for it to be over already? Plan wisely, use time smartly, and enjoy the whole process of getting married because the actual day is only one and it will be over before you know it!
Congratulations to Heather and Ian! Thank you for sharing your stunning rustic vineyard reception with us! Don’t forget to pay a visit to their darling wedding ceremony amidst the grapes!
