Stonegate Event Rentals

As a wedding planner, I know that the big day is not complete without unique, darling details.  I love to spend hours brainstorming thoughtful touches and custom designs that are sure to create a beautiful day.

Well, lucky for me, Stonegate Event Rentals just made my job about 100% easier with the launch of their new company that offers one-of-a-kind event decor pieces.

Brother and sister team, Ben and Dickie Morris, are the visionaries behind Stonegate — hooray for C-ville natives!  Check out their oh-so-fabulous inventory here!

Panorama Farms Open House

Last week, I shared a sneak peek of the incredible Panorama Farms and A. Dominick Events Open House…Today, I am thrilled to bring you more fab photos by Meg Runion Studios and all the details of the day!

The ridiculously amazing setting paired with the G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S  weather along with the all-star vendor team made for a fantastic event.

The creative geniuses at Beehive Events set this beautiful mock ceremony on top of a hill, with Panorama views of the mountains.

Of course, the venue decor by Beehive wasn’t too shabby either…

Guests dined on fabulous treats from Harvest Moon Catering. YUM!  Oh – and the super cool rentals – all from Festive Fare!

The Jangling Reinharts from Sam Hill Entertainment were perfect – they totally set the mood!

Yes, I am a little more than slightly obsessed with the Sperry Tent by Skyline Tent Company…Under the tent out back we lounged and roasted s’mores.

The Boar’s Head Balloon rides offered guests the perfect end to the afternoon…I wish we could go back and do it all over again!!

Winter Wedding Lighting

One of the best insider tricks to creating an incredible ambiance for your wedding is through thoughtful lighting. For this winter wedding, designed by A. Dominick Events, the bride shared her love of winter and Christmas by projecting tree patterns on the venue walls. I love absolutely it!

Fall Seasonal Inspiration

Fall in Charlottesville is one of the most beautiful times of year!  There is nothing that compares to the leaves changing colors and the mountains transforming from greens and blues to hues of orange, reds and yellows.

As many of my friends and family know, I really do have a minor obsession with the fall – Starbucks pumpkin lattes make me oddly happy; I have a weird affinity for apple picking; I could live on butternut squash.

So, today I am sharing a bit of fall inspiration…and oh yes – did I mention that I really heart gourds? I just can’t help myself. I REALLY do love them!
