I had two good ideas for posts today, and I got scooped on both of them. As I was scurrying to find a replacement post, I came across this amazing wedding! I think it must have been meant to be, because think this wedding is sooo beautiful. The wedding took place Memorial Day weekend at Oatland's Plantation, a National Historic Landmark near Leesburg, Virginia. The wedding was coordinated by Washington DC wedding planner Pam of A Trendy Wedding, and all the amazing florals were done by Christopher Vasquez of Amaryllis. Holland Photo Arts were the photographers behind this wedding, but DC photographer Kate Headly was a guest and couldn't resist snapping some incredible photos while there, and I couldn't resist loving her photos! I think my favorite thing about this wedding is that while it may be a "platinum wedding", at the same time, it also looks down to earth and fun, with little details that make the day.
Ann picked an Oscar de la Renta gown - she knew as soon as she put it on that it was "the one".
From Holland Photo Arts: "The bright flowers for the arbor, bouquets, and of course tabletops were provided by Amaryllis’s Christopher Vasquez. So enamored with the peonies he had done for past clients, Ann loved the thought of having a large bouquet of them for her own wedding and was touched to learn later that he actually plucked them from his own personal garden the morning of the ceremony to tie together for her."
The cake was done by Kendall's Cakes of Virginia, and the design was a perfect match of the lace and flowers on Ann's Oscar de la Renta dress! Amazing!
