Becky and David returned to their roots in Virginia for their destination wedding, traveling from out west in Los Angeles.  The beautiful ceremony and reception took place at the Wintergreen Resort in the Blue Ridge Mountains, where they blended not only their families but their LA and Virginia styles.  With oodles of pretty peach tones and a California vibe to the rustic big day, Becky and David and friends celebrated the night away in style!

Destination Wedding at Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada

Mike and Vikkie opted for a mountain destination wedding overlooking the spectacular Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada. There had been a blizzard a few days before, making the rolling hills even more amazing of a setting for their big day.

The group began the festivities during a welcome party at Banff Avenue Brew Company, before heading to the lake with welcome goodies in hand (including local treats and Vietnamese favors).

Then the couple opted for a tea ceremony set in a sunflower-clad ceremony overlooking Lake Louise. The décor for the day was inspired by the bride’s love of her favorite Van Gogh painting!

When it came time to celebrate at the reception, Mike and Vikkie went with a more modern vibe, partially to reflect the western-style ceremony they had transitioned to.

The color purple was bountiful in the reception, including even in the candy bar!

Erin and Chris held their beautiful beach wedding at Rosemary Beach in Florida, where friends and family gathered on the sand to watch the darling couple say “I do!”  Filled with pretty peach colors and lots of great dance moves (to an 80’s cover band!) this wedding day was one we just adore!
