Real Weddings: Natalie + Lincoln

What better way to announce the launch of the Richmond wedding guide (run over and meet EAD’s two wonderful Richmond brides-to-be, Meredith, and Rachel – their first posts were just published!) than with a stunning Richmond wedding from one of my favorite ladies, Courtney from Merriment Events!  Courtney is not only a wonderful person who I’m proud to call a friend, but also an incredibly talented event planner and stylist.   Natalie and Lincoln’s beautiful wedding featured shimmery, elegant, silver and gray details.  All of the lovely images are by Jennifer Colina Photography.


Bridesmaids wore J Crew Blakely dresses, in aluminum, and carried beautiful, fluffy garden bouquets created by Flower Girls.










Lincoln is a musician, so Courtney handmade these beautiful paper flowers from sheet music to decorate the walls of their reception at Crittenden Studio.  I love this unique, personal element!
