As promised, we have more photos from Jamie and Chad’s beautiful wedding at Whitehall Manor in Virginia! (Don’t miss their springtime wedding ceremony in Virginia.) But before we get to the reception, I wanted to focus on some of the beautiful portraits that Genevieve Leiper captured right before the ceremony. The Blue Ridge Mountains are truly a wonderful setting for a wedding any time of year!
For the reception, Jamie and Chad incorporated personal touches and details from their respective cultural traditions, just as they had done during the ceremony – all in that fabulous pink and green color palette.
From Jamie: Guests enjoyed Croatian wine and appetizers during the reception, and each guest received a mini mason jar favor of rosemary (purchased via beau coup), a Croatian wedding tradition. A table at the reception entrance displayed photos of our parents’ and grandparents’ weddings.
We put together an awesome playlist for our reception. DJ Evan Reitmeyer of My DeeJay mixed it perfectly and our dancefloor was packed the entire night! The night was rounded out with a lively hora before a sparkler exit.
