Pink and navy are a pretty classic color combination. This intimate Virginia wedding from J&D Photography gives the combo a fresh spin with bright and chic details you will fall in love with. The little bunny place card holders are probably the cutest thing I’ve seen all year. But my favorite detail has to be the ceremony set up. Getting married in a ring of rose petals is just about as romantic as it gets!
My colors were navy and champagne with blush and fuchsia pink accents. My style was a mix of vintage, romantic and a little bit of secret garden. Since it was a very small wedding, I wanted the location to be cozy, warm, and intimate. That’s why Clifton was so perfect! It was like you were immediately at home.
I’m the girliest girl, so I absolutely loved getting pampered and all dolled up. Having my mom help me get dressed and all the girly chatter in my suite just built up the nerves and anticipation in a good way.
At first, the most important thing was finding the perfect outdoor venue that spoke to our love of nature and was a fit for our small wedding. Then, it was making sure we stayed within budget. Next came finding the perfect planner to execute our vision. And of course, all the little details in between.
Hearing the string quartet play Bittersweet Symphony and immediately becoming emotional, my brother told a joke to help me keep it together. Seeing my husband’s face and locking eyes as soon as we saw each other. And sharing the best day ever with family and friends.
I live in the little details and people that know me best will pick up immediately on the “Danyelle touches”. I sourced the vintage flower frogs and made the signage for the memorial table, signature drink and guest book. I bought a reclaimed window from RVA Antiques and made the welcome sign guests saw as they entered the lower garden.
I decorated the favor box, lining the inside with handmade paper from Paper Source. I became a craft store regular, finding little pennant flags and glitter stickers to complete my “spread the love” message.
