Award winning wedding & event planners in the coastal Virginia area and beyond!
Our dear October bride, Kelsey, had her heart set on an outdoor Renaissance Garden ceremony. It rained all day long, straight through until 2pm when we were required to make the location call. Our team scoured through countless websites, apps and radar images throughout the afternoon to make the most educated decision possible. We chatted with all of the couple’s ceremony vendors to determine how a light sprinkling of rain might affect their performance or their equipment. Finally, we decided to move forward with the original outdoor ceremony plan. Cue Kelsey’s Mama in heaven: the sky opened and the rain stopped entirely- just as guests began arriving to the Botanical Garden! There wasn’t a dry eye in the bridal suite when we came to announce the good news, and what an exceptionally gorgeous ceremony it turned out to be! ____________________________ Planning: @emilyweddings Image: @rebeccaburtphoto for @liaeverettephoto Floral: @thewanderingpetal Arch: @tailoredstagingandevents Venue: @norfolkbotanicalgarden @weddingsatnbg Videography: @loomisfilms Ceremony Sound: @valente_the_dj of @astroentertainment

Anna and James’ exquisite Cavalier Hotel wedding was the kind of event that dreams are made of. The clear top tent allowed natural light to flood in while accenting the architecture of the historic building. Loose ivory draping softened the space while golden crystal chandeliers added the perfect touch of warmth. Ivory and Purple Shantung linens dressed the tables while clear chiavari chairs made the tent feel airy and spacious. Finally, a mix of high and low centerpieces added interest, texture and color to create a space that was warm, inviting and oh-so-elegant. ____________________________ Planning: @emilyweddings Venue: @thecavaliervb Photography: @grantdebphoto Videography: @weareneedleandthread Floral: @ishafoss Lighting: @bluesteellighting Paper Products: @paperdollsdesign Rentals + Tent: @distinctiveeventrentals Bar Rental: @ampaevents Linens: @bbjlinen

When the rain plan at your venue looks like this, is it really a compromise to call it? Pro Tip: When searching for your perfect venue, be sure to ask about potential rain plan options. Even if you’re “positive” that you won’t get nasty weather, having a plan already in place makes for stress-free, flawless execution if Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate on your big day! ____________________________ Planning: @emilyweddings Image: @alisandraphoto Gown: @blissbridalrva Menswear: @classictuxedos Venue: @pippinhillfarm Bridesmaids Apparel: @nordstrom @iheartazazie @lulusweddings @sears
