They say home is where the heart is. For Laura and Joe, married on a beautiful September afternoon, this couldn’t be more true. After growing up in the Northern Virginia area, Laura found herself on the West Coast. While there she met and fell in love with Joe at a friend’s Halloween Party. She went as a giraffe and Joe was a penguin with a bow tie. Can you spot the nod to their meet cute in the details of their tented Virginia home wedding? It made for an adorable and unique cake topper!
When the time came to propose, Joe waited until the couple was back at Laura’s childhood home in Vienna, Virginia. He took her on a walk out to the woods behind the house, knelt down and proposed. Less than a year later, the engaged couple once again found themselves in Northern Virginia at Laura’s childhood home, this time to say “I Do.” Northern Virginia is an idyllic location to get married in, especially in the early fall. Laura and Joe utilized so many beautiful and natural elements around the house to create a unique, one-of-a-kind and personalized experience for their fall wedding.
The wedding ceremony took place on the front lawn of the house under an abundant floral archway. Cocktails were hosted on the front lawn as well before the guests were escorted down to the clear top tent next to the pool. Following dinner, dancing took place al fresco under the stars and by the glowing light of the tent and pool. It was a magical evening, made even more enchanted by Laura’s gorgeous embroidered wedding dress from designer Rue De Seine Bridal. She paired her gown so perfectly with white ankle boots to give a more rustic flair to the outfit. Thank you to Michelle Lindsay Photography for sharing this Virginia wedding with us today!
