Elese and Ramye’s Wedding  // The Barns at Hamilton Station

Elese and Ramye’s Wedding // The Barns at Hamilton Station

This fall wedding at The Barns at Hamilton Station was so much fun to style and coordinate! Elese and Ray wanted a warm intimate gathering with a laid back, organic feel, as they both love hiking and being outdoors. Ray broke his ankle just days before the wedding, but as you can see, they still were on cloud nine!  The lush jewel-toned blooms were from the uber-talented Petals and Hedges and these awesome photos are by Katie Stoops.

I’m a bit obsessed with the bride’s baubles and dress from J. Crew.  We brought in some vintage throw blankets for the evening with the same pattern as her dress!

We made a ton of custom chalkboards for Elese and Ray!

Vintage rugs were a big part of this wedding to help make it seem more cozy and intimate feel and bring splashes of their colors.  Many of these beauties actually came from Elese’s mom’s house.

We pulled out all the stops with upholstered furniture and drapes for lounge seating for their wedding.  In all, they had six different groupings of our vintage sofas and vignettes, to really make it feel warm and intimate.  Check and check.

The Pergolas Are Coming!

The Pergolas Are Coming!

You may have heard that we are getting dining canopies or pergolas—it’s true! We are! It is our winter project to build beautiful canopies our of reclaimed wood to frame a dining table, ceremony alter, or lounge area that can be draped with gauzy linen and fabric. We see pergolas on the West Coast and want to bring some of that beauty out here to DC! They will be complete by April 2015 and we are taking reservations now.

Gina and John’s Wedding at Woodend Sanctuary

Gina and John’s Wedding at Woodend Sanctuary

Let me just say that it was a true pleasure coordinating Gina and John’s gorgeous wedding.  When Gina asked us to help her coordinate her wedding just six weeks before her big day at Woodend Sanctuary,  I couldn’t say no after getting a glimpse that our styles aligned perfectly. Gina loved lace, chic details, and all things vintage, and well….I do too! You’ll see from these pics that it was an amazing day, despite the near 100 degree heat and insane humidity.

At the ceremony, Gina and John wanted their guests to relax and have a good time, so they served their signature “Carlson Sweetheart” cocktails and refreshments from our whitewashed bar before the guests took their seats.  It was a great touch with their guests in mind.  It was SUPER hot, so I’m sure it was a welcome treat for their friends and family!

Ohhh the pews and flowers! It’s like our pews were made for this space at Woodend! To boot,  Sweet Root Village do an incredible job with these flowers on them as well as their killer alter arrangements. They always hit the romantic, organic look right on the head.

The rain managed to hold off throughout the entire ceremony, but soon after, it REALLY poured.  Here’s a shot of our lounge furniture just before it started storming! (Don’t worry, we moved it inside :))

When Gina and I were discussing what she wanted her reception to look like, the words that kept popping up were “pretty” and “lots of lights”.   I’d say she made it happen! We used our eyelash runners to give our farm tables a romantic feel along with Sweet Root’s beautiful flowers and vines as well as vintage inspired china. And gold.rimmed.glasses.  Heavenly!

Gina and John managed to get some great couples shots at the end of the evening on our pretty Victorian sofa.  It really was a pleasure coordinating their big day and working with the other awesome vendors that made this day perfect despite not so cooperative weather!


Congratulations, Gina and John!!!  xoxo
