I’m a firm believer in the fact that a simpler event with lovely detailing can rival the most decadent of weddings as you will see with this sweet Rustburg wedding today! I actually requested this event when I saw it in my social media newsfeed – I adored the florals and also the fact that it takes place in a town near my own. So lovely!
Here are a few of my favorite things about this wedding today!
- I already mentioned the florals, but the bouquets are oh so pretty! Locally grown blooms are incorporated into colorful cascades of flowers for both the bride and bridesmaid, who actually made their own bouquets. Talented!
- How can you be from Virginia and not love the Dogwood? The flowers were subtly included in photographs here and there – and were even utilized for a few secret kisses between the bride and groom!
- The rings? Gorgeous!! The engagement ring was custom designed from one of our longtime preferred vendors, Bowen Jewelry Company, right in downtown Lynchburg. I think they did a spectacular job with this stunning set of rings. Swoon worthy for sure!
- Kudos for a church wedding. I think they are becoming more and more rare as couples seek to have their wedding and reception at the same location, but that is perfectly feasible with some churches, too. There’s just something about a quaint chapel event as with this sweet Rustburg wedding.
- A lavender toss? Yes, please! How fun is that – and much softer and fragrant than birdseed or rice. So fun!
- The bride is a curly girl, and the hairstylist is none other than the groom’s mother, who owns a well established (and uber cute!) salon in Altavista. I have curly hair, too, and I always appreciate when a bride incorporates her natural waves into her wedding day look. Pretty!
