Thomas fixes broken hearts for a living and Bea solemnly swears to tell the truth…a match made in heaven. A beautiful day at James Monroe Highland celebrated their marriage with loving family and friends. Bea and her bridesmaids started their wedding weekend earlier in the week with winery tours, apple picking and girl fun. An early wedding morning with Anne of Charlottesville Makeup Artist and everyone was at their beautiful best.

The exquisite floral design by M. Henry Design sparkled in the autumn sunlight, but not more than Bea as her Dad escorted her down the garden aisle to give her away to Thomas, who glowed as she approached. Gay Lee Einstein performed a touching ceremony, and after a recessional of “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours” the celebration begins!

More sparkle as MS Events and C&O Catering, who served an impeccable menu, delightfully set the Highland Pavilion. Cakes by Rachel displayed a dessert table of special treats and a cutting cake for the bride and groom.

Another tender moment shared between Bea and her Dad Larry, the Father Daughter dance was “Unforgettable”. Then it was dance…dance…dance! Bea twirled and twirled in her gorgeous gown….more sparkle.

Taylor & Garrett

Garrett _ Taylor - Wedding 2018-00821.jpg


It’s not everyday you meet the perfect couple, so in tune and so in love. On a cool October afternoon, Taylor and Garrett stood hand in hand at The Haven Sanctuary in Charlottesville. Flanked by their friends, the bridesmaids looked amazing in pink, blush, and burgundy dresses, each different but perfectly complementary while the groomsmen sported handsome tuxedos.

Taylor’s dazzling smile lit up the room as she gazed up at the man she would soon marry. That smile was infectious as nobody could contain their joy when Taylor and Garrett sang along to How Great Thou Art. When these two look at each other, you know that they will live a long and happy life together. Special friends Samuel, Michael & Elly provided beautiful inspirational music for the ceremony.

Jeff Gleason made the day even more fun taking amazing photos, along with Stephen Stonestreet Videography. The reception was held at Keswick Vineyards and was indescribable with florals by M. Henry Design, and lighting and rentals provided by Skyline Tent Co. and MS Events.

Garrett’s kicked off the festivities with his toast to the “mom’s who put their blood, sweat, and tears in planning” (and don’t forget the Dad’s who put up with the moms).

Taylor’s Aunt Susan created the cake and cupcakes with all sorts of candy added to the display, bringing out the inner kid in everyone! After an amazing dinner by Le’Toile Catering and heartfelt speeches the guests spent the rest of the night dancing to the tunes of Sound Enforcement DJ T.D. Layman! An exciting sparkler exit wrapped up the night, making the perfect getaway for the bride and groom!

Tricia & Cody's Glamorous Autumn Wedding

Tricia & Cody November 3, 2017

From the candelabras in the ballroom to her exquisite Calla Blanche dress, Tricia and Cody blew all of their guests away with all of the special details. Tricia, being anything but the typical bride, knew from the beginning she wanted a dress that made a statement. The fact the bridal salon had said no other girl had tried this dress was the icing on the cake.

The lace cap sleeves, ivory/nude color combo, with a sheer illusion back and cathedral length train made it breathtaking. The dressmaker let Tricia tweak a few things to make it her own. "I wanted more of a mermaid shape, so we added a full crinoline skirt underneath the bottom of the dress to really make the bottom pop, show the beautiful lace detail, and give that hourglass shape."

So imagine for a moment, this vision against the Autumn Virginia mountains at Trump Winery on a warm November have a beaming bride. The ceremony was held at the exquisite chapel on Trump Winery grounds where her train delicately swept across the marble floor to her "soon to be" husband, Cody.

The guests were invited to Trump Grand Hall where they enjoyed cocktail hour on the patio overlooking a full view of color. They later entered the ballroom enhanced with intricate florals and candelabras on shimmering linens. Cody secretly prepared a skit with his groomsmen reenacting his love story with Tricia. Laughs echoed throughout the ballroom as the groomsmen pretended to be their dog, Tricia, and Cody. The night ended with dancing, a sparkler departure, love and laughter as everyone celebrated Tricia and Cody's first few hours together as man and wife... #TriciaCrackedTheCode!

With phenomenal views, a gorgeous pastel color palette, sleek naval uniforms and charming Christian melodies, Megan and Tony were blessed with the country outdoor wedding of their dreams at the spectacular Hermitage Hill Farm & Stables in Waynesboro, VA.



After the ceremony, all the guests gathered for a lovely cocktail hour inside the stable. As they enjoyed drinks and finger foods, guests were able to interact with the beautiful horses while socializing with family and friends.



During the cocktail hour, the bridal party and close relatives took time for photographs by Ron Dressel. Hermitage Hill Farm offered a variety of scenes for the photographer to capture the moment with this lovely couple.



Guests took a break from the dance floor to witness the bride and groom cutting their beautifully decorated cake from HotCakes.



At the end of the reception, guests lined up along the stable, forming an aisle for Megan and Tony to make their grand departure as Mr. & Mrs. Sham.
