Boy have we got some truly beautiful spring Northern Virginia wedding inspiration for you today! This wedding photo shoot was inspired by the warm, but formal interiors of traditional southern homes. Along the way, the shoot’s designers from Lauren Niles Events fell in love with the idea of incorporating lily of the valley as a motif throughout. This detail served as a nod to a time when blooms were chosen for their meaning; in this case, humility, sweetness, and happiness.
It was hard to choose just a few of our favorite elements, but we sure tried! The gorgeous Retreat at Cool Spring is a fantastic Virginia wedding venue with well-appointed furnishings and spectacular light. The delicate bouquet was wrapped with a vintage millinery ribbon. What a unique piece! The honey-hued velvet napkins on the dining table left us swooning. Finally, the towering cake adorned with an intricate sugar wreath of greens and lily of the valley has us simultaneously dying for a piece and not daring to cut one. This real couple’s love was exuberant, and their portraits are the centerpiece of the entire shoot. Thank you so much to Alicia Lacey Photography for sharing this beautiful lily of the valley wedding inspiration with us today.
