Flashback Feature Friday

Guess what day it is!? That’s right…Happy Flashback Feature Friday!

And today we are flashing back to a romantic and fun-filled wedding ceremony and reception we had the honor of lighting back in August 2015. Pamela and Alex’s special day included an amazing team of vendors who helped all of the pieces come together! Photographed by The Girl Tyler and planned by Michelle Amarillo Event Planning, it was sure to be quite the memorable and beautiful event!

Such breathtaking bouquet arrangements by Studio Posy!

Pamela and Alex incorporated a few of the traditional lighting elements. They had a pinspot on the cake and a wash on their dessert table. The presence of soft and romantic amber uplighting created the feeling of elegance throughout the night. A dance floor wash was used to highlight all of their special moments, from their first entrance into the reception as Mr. & Mrs. to their first dance.

This wedding had a truly elegant yet energetic feel to it! The gorgeous florals from Studio Posy to the fun-loving bridal party captured by The Girl Tyler made this Cape Charles classic yet chic wedding and reception one to remember for Pamela and Alex.

Flashback Feature Friday

Happy Flashback Feature Friday! Today we are taking a “flashback” to a winter wedding we had the honor of lighting back in February 2014 shot by Echard Wheeler Photography. We loved the way this bride incorporated all of the traditional lighting elements: uplighting, pinspots on her floral arrangements, and a dance floor wash, but gave her own personal flare with this gorgeous drape design. This wedding had a truly romantic and elegant feel to it from the lush florals from Palette of Petals to the blush uplighting around the perimeter of the space. We had the privilege of working with some other amazing vendors, scroll down to check for the full list.

Trendy Tuesday

Happy Tuesday Ya’ll! Today we are talking about a popular wedding trend that has been hot-hot-hot in 2016: “Woodland Fairytale.” This is such a fun way to incorporate some rustic pieces or anything outdoors with some really fun girly/”princessy”/crystal like accents (chandeliers, beaded curtains, hanging strands of “twinkle lights”, etc.)

Ways to incorporate this trend:

Custom wood pieces with glitzy chandeliers:unspecified.jpg

Hanging Chandeliers from a tree to create the perfect seating area or cigar bar in this case:

The use of unique, vintage finds like these church lanterns with some greenery and elegant draping:unspecified.png

We love the idea of using clear top tents or partial clear top tents in the middle of the woods to really get the feel of being in fairytale land with string bulbs, chandeliers, and landscape lighting.unspecified-4.jpg

Custom Pieces to grace over the center of your dance floor, these grapevine balls lit up at night can give the feeling of being underneath the stars:

We really love this trend because there is really no right or wrong way to do it. It is open for interpretation and the use of your imagination. We love being able to work with brides who have a particular vision or trend they have seen. We can then bring their vision to life and make their wedding day the “fairytale” they dreamed it would be.

Feature Friday

   With the crisp, fall weather shortly coming to an end we find ourselves looking forward to the frigid, winter weather. And no, it is not because we love cold weather! But because this season brings forward so so so many ideas of pure winter magic!

   So follow along with us today as we are dreaming of those gorgeous winter weddings. You know the ones we are talking about. The breathtaking weddings that have guests feeling as if they just walked into a wonderland of gorgeousness and bring the bride to tears.

   Tara and John were married on January 17th, 2015 at The Founders Inn. They had warm amber uplighting complimented by three elegant chandeliers. The draping was amazingly spectacular! And the additional gobo projections on the wall made for a unique and elegant feel in the ballroom.

Happy Friday! Today is #FeatureFriday and we are featuring the wedding of Chris and Chantavia from this past April 2016 at The Chrysler Museum of Art! It was a beautiful and elegant affair that was timeless and classic. From the beautiful uplighting around the perimeter of the room to the unique and custom monogram design projected on the marble wall, this wedding was very special!  We loved the fact they incorporated some very classic and romantic colors.Check below for a few of our favorite pictures from this event!
