This Virginia backyard wedding ceremony was on the family estate in Purcellville. The land had been in Eric’s family for 200+ years. Kristyn and Eric debated about whether to host their reception there as well, but ultimately they decided to host the ceremony there and to celebrate afterward at a local vineyard. As a home that has been in Eric’s family for generations, Kristyn and Eric will definitely cherish the memories of being able to get ready and marry there.
Laura Ashbrook Photography created these gorgeous pictures, despite it being an extremely overcast and slightly drizzly day. Lynnvale Studios created the stunning and cheery florals for the wedding. I love this demure color palette of pale butter and light green for a September wedding.
Kristyn and Eric went with a white top frame tent for the ceremony, with a few strategically placed clear sidewalls to protect their guests from the wind and drizzle. We also had about 50 white umbrellas on hand for guests to use as they got off the buses and walked to the tent.
This final photo just slays me, I love it so much. It is the perfect endcap to this post about this Virginia backyard wedding ceremony.
Thanks again to Laura Ashbrook Photography for these incredible photos. I rarely see such a perfect collection of wedding pictures. Kudos!
