We have a fondness for the outdoor Virginia wedding venue River Farm, that overlooks the sprawling Potomac River and boasts the most beautiful gardens. So when Love Life Images sent us Sarah and Matt’s rustic garden wedding, we couldn’t wait to share it with our readers! The bride discovered a love for Etsy weddings when planning her own, and we love the special touches she added into her décor that were made from small business artisans. Coupled with accents of family heirlooms such as her grandmothers treasured ring, we love how intimate their wedding felt! Thank you to Love Life Images for sharing this sweet Virginia Garden wedding with us today!

From the Bride: “We had a garden wedding right on the Potomac River. We wanted that relaxed atmosphere to translate to our wedding style. Our color palette included soft, neutral colors. Luckily we share similar tastes, so it made making decisions fairly easy. We were going for simple yet elegant.”

“I wore a ring that belonged to my paternal grandmother and placed a pendant that belonged to my maternal grandmother on my bouquet. It was a sweet way to include them both in the day.”

Favorite Memory: “My favorite memory was everyone chanting “one more song!” at the end of the night. Our poor DJ (h was amazing, by the way!)”
