Photos Make to Get Married in Virginia Plonk Country

We are hearing more and more about emerging Plonk countries that are growing in unlikely places-Pinot Noir is invading the Willamette Valley in the northwest, the Plonk culture from New York to the Finger Lakes is gaining in esteem, and even Texas has a booming Plonk scene!

And while we are happy to have more interesting bottles to drink (did you know that I worked in the Plonk Industry?) we are all the more curious to know what this means for the wedding world: more beautiful places to get married under the Radar!

No matter where you are in the world, the land of Plonk always means beauty – hills, volcanic vineyards or steeply sloping vineyards – if you want a beautiful backdrop for your wedding photos, you can count on the vineyards that will offer you the beauty you need.

Which brings us to Today’s fantastic real-life wedding in Virginia. We have seen an increase in weddings in southern wineries lately (see also the one in Georgia and the one in Virginia!) and boy, they are beautiful. When you combine rustic old-world scenes with old-fashioned southern Charm, you have the recipe for a beautiful wedding day.

Proposal

Fast forward two years, Tyler’s mom and sister visited the city and he wanted to take them to our favorite place, Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant. I looked at the fountain above the outdoor balcony, turned around and Tyler was on his knees and asked me to marry him. I was so happy that my initial reaction was “Omg, are you serious?”I will never forget the joyful feeling that I felt at that moment. A few minutes after he surprised me again by having all my best friends there to party with us.

Location And Style

Elegant, romantic and glamorous describe our wedding style. I had dreamed of getting married at Morais Vineyards & Winery since I had seen it in a photo many years ago and we had booked it the day after our engagement. For me, it is the most beautiful and romantic place I have ever seen and embodies everything I wanted for our big day!

To embody our wedding style, we had blush and neutral colors at our wedding, with gold and shimmering accents and a touch of navy sapphire for the men’s Tuxedos.

The dress and the clothes

I knew that I wanted a wedding dress above all elegant. After a lot of research, I realized that Martina Liana embodied my style in her dresses. Attractive and eye-catching, my transparent Martina Liana wedding dress was the high-end style I wanted for a big wedding day. Adorned with a deep V-neckline in the center of the dress, the transparent bodice of the dress extends effortlessly in organic lace straps and deep side cutouts. It just took me one try to find my dress – it was the initial one I put on, and I knew this was it.

To complete my wedding dress and our elegance, Tyler and the boys wore classic navy sapphire Sapphire tuxedos with gold jewelry, and the bridesmaids wore luxurious rose quartz chiffon dresses.

Favorite moments

My favorite part of the day was seeing Tyler’s reaction when he saw me at initial sight, then I walked down the aisle. Tyler says his favorite part was the initial look too-he says he was thrilled.

Flower

Our wedding flowers were soft and elegant; we used blush, Ivory and neutral colors for the flowers. Roses are my favorite, so we made sure to incorporate them. There were rose petals in the aisle and a red and ivory wall background for the ceremony. My bouquet and the floral centers were simply beautiful.

Details and favors

All labels and stationery were designed by Becky J. invitations. The Golden Mirror welcome sign and the Golden Mirror seat card had the calligraphy of Write Liz Write.

We included details with the word “love” for our last name throughout the wedding, and our Signature drink was made with Tennessee Honey Screech to give a hint about where we met.

The favors were the perfect touch to end the night of a magnificent wedding. personalized ivory and gold pendants wrapped around a mini bottle of champagne. The perfect sleep drink for all our customers to remember the best night of our lives.

Wedding cake

Our wedding cake was simple elegance with a touch of romance. We used ivory fondant, pearls and pearl borders around the base of each level. We used gold for the base of the cake and a gold “Love” Topper, as well as roses for a touch of romance. The cake was swirled with lemon and raspberry aromas.

Tips for other couples

It’s so easy to dive into all the details of the big day because, of course, you want it to be perfect – take a step back and enjoy all the special moments with the one you love because it’s really important and it happens so quickly.
