and Kevin had an absolutely beautiful October wedding day at Ashton Creek Vineyard, near Richmond, Virginia! Ashton Creek is one of my absolute favorite winery wedding venues in the Richmond area- in the fall, the outdoor space was full of rows of romantic vines, which made for the most romantic ceremony backdrop and picture spots! Marisa and Kevin envisioned a romantic, woodland wonderland, with shades of burgundy, dusty rose and white, paired with woodsy greenery, including a variety of ferns, moss, and airy greens- I LOVED all their ideas! To bring their vision to life, we used lots of fall dahlias, ranunculus, garden roses, hydrangea, and more- it was so much fun to work with color!! The bouquets were tied off our fall-inspired Crimson silk ribbon and it was the perfect compliment to the lovely dusty rose bridesmaid dresses, and Marisa’s beautiful wedding dress!!
We wanted to really make a statement in the reception space, and as such, we worked with the Lighting Professors to design wild greenery all over their cloud truss, which hung over the dance floor with Edison Bulbs draping down- so beautiful! We used moss to create woodland garlands, paired with pops of flowers and burgundy taper candles, and then mixed up the other centerpieces on the remaining tables to create visual interest in the reception space. Pops of copper further enhanced the look, and I loved looking back on the full design in the photos! Their wedding day was photographed by We Are The Mitchell’s who did such a lovely job, and I always love working with the amazing staff at Ashton Creek Vineyard and Blush Events! These two are seriously the sweetest- we had such an AMAZING time working together, and I already miss talking with them and our planning meetings! It was such a joy and honor to be a part of Marisa and Kevin’s wedding day, and it was so lovely to get to know them and their sweet families- I remember at all the vendors at their wedding were going on and on about how lucky we felt to have been there! Such happy memories!! 🙂 Scroll to the end of this post for a list of all the vendors who brought their wedding day to life!
