Lana and Michael married this past September at Bluemont Vineyard. Their wedding was completely designed around family heirlooms and their Cincinnati roots. The ceremony took place under a hops garland which was a cute way of saluting the grooms love of beer and to acknowledge one of the trades of Cincinnati. We also highlighted the “flying pigs” of Cincinnati by using them as table numbers and decor. The family and I worked diligently to bring this wedding to life and it was such a pleasure to be a part of this very big day. Thankfully Genevieve Leiper was there to photograph the this very special wedding.
Lana carried a bouquet of cafe au lait dahlias grown by Don, silver sage, white patience roses, astrantia, lavender, amnesia roses, queen annes lace, and quicksand roses. The bouquet was bound with a necklace that belonged to her great grandmother, and a small crocheted rosette that had been given to her from the grooms family.
Maids carried bouquets of white dahlias from Don, silver sage, amnesia roses, smoke bush, sage and the herb lavender.
The wedding featured two of the sweetest flower girls ever, grandma and grandma.
They flower girls were given a mix of rose petals and hops to throw, perfection right!!!
Every detail mattered and connected back to the heritage of both families.
The seating chart was created on an old door that the bride and groom brought to us. We painted the door for the couple and wrote the seating chart out for the guests. The door is now a part of our inventory and a treasured gift from our bride.
Evan did the lighting and the drape for the wedding, the barn always looks amazing with Evans incredible touch.
A huge design was created for great grandmothers crystal punch bowl. Lets just say when we designed in this family heirloom, the value of the design increased ten fold. We were incredibly cautious, careful, and even nervous when we designed this piece.
Lana and Michaels wedding was just featured in the new Virginia Living Magazine.
Many thanks to Geneveive Leiper who always captures the day so perfectly.
Happy married life Lana and Michael we are so happy that we were asked to design your wedding!!!
