Check out our adorable fall wedding on Martha Stewart Weddings! Our Labor of Love shot some gorgeous photos, not all of which made it to Martha, so we thought we'd share a few more with you here.
Dana and Quinn were an absolute delight to work with. They both currently live in LA, but Quinn is from Jamestowne, Virginia and thought what better place to have a wedding than on the historical grounds of the Historic Jamestowne archeological dig site, just up the road from the home he and his family grew up in. So, we flew out to Virginia, checked out the grounds and realized we couldn't have agreed with him more!
Jamestowne was the first permanent English settlement in America, meaning that it was the first real town settled back in the early 17th century. Complete with ruins of an old church, cemetery and the original fort, the grounds are a striking reminder of how this country began (pretty awesome history lesson to follow up Memorial Day, if I may say so myself). Smack in the middle of the grounds is a sprawling lawn, perfect for pitching up a massive Sperry Tent for a wedding reception. So, that's just what we did.
It was an amazing night full of dancing, a la Dexter Lake Club Band, delicious food with a menu created by Matt Poley of Heirloom LA and excellent service provided by Design Cuisine. The floral design by Beehive Events was to die for, a brilliant mix of gardeny seasonal colors and a touch of whimsy. They really pulled off the ultimate fall wedding without making it feel too themey or over the top. Oh, and did we mention how incredible the fall foliage was in Virginia? Every possible color you can imagine in those trees--made for the perfect wedding color palette.
