I could not be more smitten with the country elegance of Tess and Ryan’s wedding day! They envisioned a rustic yet elegant style for their big day, and found the perfect setting at Shadow Creek Weddings & Events in Purcellville, VA. They worked with fine art photographer Matoli Keely Photography and local wedding planner Laura Dee Events to make sure their wedding day was everything they dreamed!
Country Elegance Barn Wedding in French Blue and White
For the flowers, Sophie Felts Floral Design created a soft palette with silvery green eucalyptus leaves, creamy white flowers and pops of soft blue mixed in from thistles and Crystal Blue Lithodora!
Fine art wedding photographer Matoli Keely has mastered the art of the flatlay! How gorgeous are the bride’s jewelry and accessories!
Cannot get over how adorable the flower girl is!
Bride Tess absolutely stunning in her fit and flare wedding dress from Matthew Christopher! The dreamy lace and fitted silhouette were a match made in heaven for the country elegance of her wedding day! Hair stylist Tress Hair Co. complemented the look with a sideswept braided hairstyle that evoked pure romance, while makeup artist Izzy B Makeup kept things natural with a hint of smolder in her soft smokey eye. Their sweet blue palette was represented by Joanna August bridesmaid dresses – they picked their own style and silhouette in a pastel blue for a chicly unified mismatched bridal party!
The gents kept things classy in navy blue suits for the groomsmen with a French Blue bow tie for the groom!
The First Look was Tess and Ryan’s favorite moment of the day – the intimate moment gave them a chance to connect and take in the significance of their wedding day, and made them less nervous for the ceremony!
Tess added a sparkling statement belt to her wedding dress to give it a beautifully glam accent!
The couple loved their barn venue and wanted the decor to reflect their ‘elegant yet rustic’ style. They opted to add crystal chandeliers, vintage furniture, and lots of greenery accents to fit their vision of country elegance. Bella Villa Antiques & Vintage Rentals had the perfect furniture to elevate their barn reception, like the tufted sofa for their Sweetheart Table!
Food and florals were the top priorities for Tess and Ryan – they completely nailed both! The reception dinner from Main Event Caterers received raves from their guests, especially the short ribs and crab cakes. For the cake, they had a sweetly rustic naked three layer champagne cake with a raspberry compote and buttercream frosting!
