Rustic Ballroom Wedding

I’m a serious lover of all things rustic chic – and when you throw a fabulous DIY details into the mix, I’ve been known to go a little crazy.  So, when I first spotted this drop dead gorgeous Virginia wedding, well… I fell head over heels in 5 seconds flat.  The crafty groom handmade their place "cards" , cake stand and centerpieces from a tree trunk - and they are all kinds of fabulous… and the beautiful images snapped up by Living Story Photography? Swoon, swoon, swoon.

From the Photographer... Erin and Michael are the classic love story of the high school cheerleader and football player. They were so excited to be married! A beautiful full catholic mass was planned followed by an evening of dinner and dancing at a premier venue in the area, Steveson Ridge. A rustic theme was consistent throughout the event with deep purples, emerald green, and marine blues. The groom handmade their place "cards" and cake stand from a tree trunk. He also created the centerpieces with a tree trunk and sawed off wine bottles with candles and elements for texture. Anthomanic is a fabulous florist in the area that designed and created beautiful flower arrangements. We ventured into historic downtown Fredericksburg, Va for portraits of the guys and girls. We used a combination of natural lighting and creative alternative lighting to create a variety of photographs, as well as, a photojournalistic style to capture the moments of their day unobtrusively.
