We are back with part two of Brianna and Joseph’s wedding in Virginia! (If you missed their wedding ceremony and Brianne’s fantastic sparkly purple shoes, definitely go check that out first!) With a retro meets country vibe that they were going for, they had a tough task! But, they certainly pulled it off by mixing a little of this with little of that to give their guests an at-home feeling that was cozy and perfect. I think the country fried steak for dinner helped too! Amber Reinink Photography was there to capture all of their beautiful wedding day moments.
From Brianne: We didn’t want guests to just see color. We wanted them instead, to enjoy the beauty in the details and simple luxury of texture and sparkle. We kept it a little rustic and vintage with offsetting mercury votives and bud vases, as well as ostrich feather quill pens with the rawness of reclaimed wood signs, mason jars, wire baskets, twine and velvet wrapped bouquets. Truly, a marriage of retro Gatsby Glam and vintage country hospitality!
We went with down home country cooking: country fried steak, honey glazed ham, mashed potatoes and green beans. It’s hard enough to cook a good filet to perfection even for a party of two… so, we just went with some of the food that we love the most.
