LET'S FIND OUT
Marie and Jonathan’s love story hit a high note on a crisp fall day at the enchanting Airlie wedding venue in Warrenton, VA. You know, the kind of place that makes you believe in fairy tales. They chose Airlie because, well, it’s drop-dead gorgeous, and the added bonus of having cozy hotel rooms on-site was a win-win.
Now, let’s talk about these two lovebirds. Marie is all about the nitty-gritty details; she’s got an eye for that stuff. On the flip side, Jonathan is the Mr. Cool and Collected of the duo. Jonathan originally had this grand plan for a cruise proposal, but thanks to the pandemic curveball, he ended up popping the question during an anniversary dinner. Talk about pivoting like a pro!
Their wedding was pure magic – elegance, classic vibes, and romance on steroids. Imagine deep, rich purples everywhere, with the bridesmaids rocking various shades of this royal hue. The ceremony arch was a jaw-dropper, and guess what? We did a little flower magic and repurposed those beauties for a killer head table setup. Oh, and let’s not forget the three-tier Purple ombre fondant ruffle cake; it was almost too pretty to eat.
Now, let’s dive into the fun stuff. Picture this: a photo booth that rocked the reception – everyone’s guilty pleasure. And oh boy, the late-night snack bar. It was like a dream come true for anyone with a sweet tooth, with the most sinfully delicious pies. But the cherry on top? A cozy fire pit under the starry sky where guests roasted s’mores. Yep, it was as awesome as it sounds.
We want to give a big shoutout to our friend Jenny Park at JP Wedding Flowers for sending them our way. Marie and Jonathan were an absolute joy to work with, and we were thrilled to be part of their journey. Beyond the usual event management hustle, we were their go-to team for all things planning, keeping the stress levels at bay and the excitement soaring throughout their remarkable journey to “I do.”
