Katherine and Jordan’s sweet outdoor Virginia wedding features tons of metallic details with a few sparkly touches that all add up to an incredibly elegant and glamorous wedding. Laura from Events in the City planed and designed this Virginia affair where the color palette was based off of the bridesmaids’ metallic golden gowns with David Abel Photography on hand to capture all the glam and sparkle! Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg made for a perfect fit for the pair, who wanted something relaxed and convenient for guests. And, after you’re done perusing through their stunning wedding, be sure to check out their wedding trailer from Josh Fowler Cinematography.
From Katherine: For our wedding, we really wanted something classy and elegant. My inspiration for color palette actually came from my bridesmaid’s dresses. I found them online (through Pinterest, of course) and the color was stunning (goldy/bronze). So once I picked those out, I knew I wanted that color as my base for the wedding color scheme.
Our main priorities for the wedding were photography and venue. I was given advice from an old boss, that you cannot get this day back, and you want to remember it as best you can. So hire a photographer you are in love with. One who captures the day as you would want to see it. So I hired our photographer almost two years in advance (we had a long engagement).
Our venue was also very important to me. I wanted a place where the ceremony and reception could be held at, so my guest would be able to have convenience with everything all in one location. I also wanted a place my guest could stay overnight at. I wanted it to be easy for the guest to just enjoy themselves, to not feel rushed, and to just enjoy this time with family and friends.
And, now we have Katherine and Jordan’s wedding video trailer from Josh Fowler Cinematography…
