It was a gorgeous, crisp evening when Jessica and Joey said “I do” at the Williamsburg Inn last year. They had a beautiful outdoor ceremony at the Wren Building Courtyard, followed by a classy white tent reception in the Oval Garden. While the wedding maintained a classic look and feel, Jessica and Joey put their own personal spin on it, allowing their style and fun-loving personalities to shine through.
Designing a Dreamy Bridal Bouquet
The bride was absolutely stunning in her runway-worthy beaded gown. Jessica really wanted to have peonies for her bouquet, and we were happy to be able to come through with some beautiful ones for her, even though it was November. We designed her a hand-tied garden bouquet filled with white blooms, contrasted with dark greenery. For “something borrowed,” we wrapped the bouquet with lace from Jessica’s mother’s wedding gown.
A Non-Traditional Wedding Party
Instead of having a traditional wedding party, the bride and groom chose to have all their close friends and family members dress in black. They took photos with these friends before the ceremony, and kept their ceremony very intimate. But they made sure their friends had a blast before the ceremony! They rented a red trolley, complete with on-board champagne, and took their friends around town to take photos.
Nighttime Reception in the Williamsburg Inn Oval Garden
The long farmhouse tables situated under a large white tent made for a picturesque reception setting. We designed the centerpieces with lots of greenery and white blooms. Long-stemmed vases with floating LED candles gave the centerpieces depth. Our team also accented the tables with gold votive candle holders, and gold framed vintage postcards collected by Joey’s close friends.
We absolutely loved being a part of Jessica and Joey’s special day at the Williamsburg Inn! We wish them a beautiful one-year anniversary and many wonderful years together.
