From the dusty lavender bridesmaid dresses to the romantic textured florals, we are in love with Jenny and Erik’s Salamander Resort wedding last summer. The couple planned the Middleburg destination wedding from NYC, after finally becoming engaged since being high school sweethearts. They originally aimed to host their romantic ceremony on the terraces outside of the resort, followed by cocktails in the Culinary gardens, but mother nature was not playing along as planned! It shows that having a skilled professional wedding vendor team goes a long way, as originally the weather only called for a few clouds and no rain! Shortly after putting the finishing touches on the outdoor ceremony the skies opened to an unforeseen summer rain storm, causing everyone to pull together a beautiful alternative indoor ceremony! We love how they were able to repurpose the ceremony florals to create an intimate space that everyone loved!
During the ceremony, the couple read excerpts from years of love letters to each other in a truly personal touch to the program. A few more fun experiences for guests included Wed on Canvas performing a live wedding painting of the reception, and the couple participating in a rousing “shoe game” between dinner courses. Thank you to Eli Turner Studios for sharing this lovely wedding with us and best wishes to the couple!
