Megan and Chris wed in an outdoor Virginia ceremony sprinkled with purple hues and chevron details and captured by Kristen Gardner Photography. And if that isn’t enough, the flowers are not to be missed, either! Best of all, they chose Lansdowne Resort as their venue so they could spend an entire relaxing weekend with their guests. I love that idea!
From Megan: We both have large families and wanted to ensure our wedding was a large celebration. It was important for us to also spoil our guests and give them a weekend vacation too. Our venue Lansdowne Resort was chosen just for that reason. Everyone, including us, was able to show up to the resort, spend time together and relax. Family was the number one factor behind every decision we made!
For the theme, we decided on a classic feel and chose purple and silver as our wedding colors. We added preppy touches with chevron throughout the stationary. We focused on having a sophisticated event with good food, lots of drinks and a packed dance floor!
My florist Holly, there are no words! We shared our vision with her and she created a masterpiece. The ceremony chuppah adorned with ribbons was a dream come true. It was the perfect way to mix our Jewish and Catholic religions. She created unique and personal arrangements that reflected our style to the tee.
The entire day was magical. If we had to pick one memory from the day, we would chose our ceremony. It was amazing to share our love with our closest family and friends and have them play a role in our relationship.
