Soft, sophosticated and undeniably romantic, this lovely Loudoun County wedding reception was held at Oatlands Historic House & Gardens. With a gorgeous manor house, rolling lawns and lovingly-tended gardens, the property's very essence lends itself as an exquisite backdrop for an elegant affair. Teeming with history and culture, the boxwood hedges, canopied trees and clandestine paths create picture perfect moments for classic day-of photographs that will last a lifetime.
Stunning florals grace every aspect of this sweet southern soirée. Wisps of greenery and silver-hued foliage create a demure backdrop for bouquets laden with layered garden roses and ranunculus. Floral crowns and other personal accents give the wedding day a sense of woodland nostalgia. Every detail is fresh, clean and simply composed from tenderly calligraphed invitations to charming reception decor.
Full of classic details, the event exudes a sense of eloquence. The raw wooden surfaces of farmhouse-style tables, vintage-gold chargers and tabletop details paired with fine woven linens, subtly patterned, establish an intriguing surface for vases laden with the season's choicest blooms. A striking juxtaposition of rustic chic elements with carefully placed splashes of color and texture bring vibrance to the overall event aesthetic.
Clean lines and the careful exposure of wood grain textures leave this wedding feeling approachable and relaxed. Unique vintage chairs were brought in for the bride and groom, adding a sophisticated touch. Like most aspects of this alluring affair, the cake was executed in a simple, yet classic, manner. A layer of decadent floral detailing elevates the design to a place of elegant refinement.
Vintage settees, ottomans and draping lend spectacular style to the tented outdoor reception. Chandeliers, silver trays and well-placed compote designs were curated to ensure guests would enjoy the genteel environment of the historic premises. Imaginative, carefully furnished and expertly designed from the smallest bud vase to the loftiest tented peak, this Oatlands wedding oozes the quality and expert aesthetic of a Loudoun Weddings event.
Another couple, another love, another successful Loudoun Weddings affair.
