Real Weddings: Kristen + Andrew

Inspired by the image of a bright pink and purple sunset, Kristen and Andrew’s Loudoun County, Virginia wedding is pure rustic elegance.  Held at the beautiful Whitehall Manor, Kristen and Andrew planned an outdoor ceremony with the Blue Ridge mountains as a backdrop.  Hurricane Irene had other plans!  Luckily, despite the wrath of mother nature, nearly all of the guests made it to the celebrations and the rain certainly did not put a damper on their spirits.  The wonderful Holly Chapple created gorgeous, natural arrangements filled with amnesia roses, seeded eucalyptus, astrantia, lavender, dahlias in deep winey purples, and navy berry.  I adore the fresh purple and green color palette and the beautiful images from Rob Holley!
