Sometimes romance is found in a wispy veil, a weeping tree, and stolen glances between a newly married husband and wife. Such was the case with this so-breathtaking-we-die Virginia wedding of Emily and Justin. Talk about #thatsdarling! It took place on Emily’s family’s property and we can only imagine that it’s been the backdrop for many happy memories throughout her life. With simplistic yet sweepingly sweet details like wooden church pews, strings of lights, and bridesmaid’s clutching pink peonies, you really can’t do it better than this. We urge to take your time with these photos–to savor them. We guarantee that they will make your life a little more beautiful.
HOW TO CREATE A ROMANTICALLY SWEET WEDDING:
For the dress: classically sweet is the way to go with a soft A-line that lets your natural beauty shine through. Add in a cut-edge veil for the finishing touch
For the color scheme: soft neutrals like blush, cream, ivory, and mint will sooth your guests’ eyes and souls
For the flowers: blush and ivory roses and peonies accented with eucalyptus or magnolia leaves and tied with satin ribbons
For the venue: anywhere with tall trees and open fields or, alternatively, in a botanical garden
For the decor: take the family heirloom approach and borrow wooden furniture to create artful tableaus and styled areas. For the centerpieces, colored glass bottles with just a few stems will be absolute perfection
