This past weekend has left me longing for more warm weather…and this wedding leaves me yearning for even more sunshine! Garrett Hubbard Wedding Storyteller captured Kelly and Kevin’s big day at Round Hill Farm last June – and it is full of all kinds of prettiness from the homemade signage to wildflower galore to lovely bistro lights. This celebration is sure to start your week off right – enjoy!

Next up, today’s Real Wedding…Lauren and Desaray had a Quaker wedding at the Friends Meeting House in Dupont August of last year. They got ready at their home in Old Town Alexandria VA and had the reception in their backyard. Both Lauren and Desaray focused on an intimate wedding of friends and family rather than a big, expensive, lavish wedding.
Thank you to Kelly Prizel for sharing her fabulous pics!
The ceremony was inside the Quaker meeting house, so no pictures were allowed. It was an hour long ceremony with no officiant, simply people getting up and saying what came to their mind. A guest even broke out in song. The ceremony had a lot of tears because so many guests got to share their thoughts of love and good wishes.
Desaray’s dress was a vintage dress with a huge peacock design and Lauren had a suit chocolate brown custom made at Dash’s in Alexandria, VA.
As they left the ceremony, their guests threw cups of mini smores as them- tiny chocolate chips, graham crackers and mini marshmallows. Everyone was trying not to eat their entire cup before they threw it!
The reception was in their backyard with the hot dogs and hamburgers grilled for dinner by a friend. Guests sat on picnic tables and came and went as they pleased. The music was done by a DJ friend.
The cake was by Charm City Cakes – and what a cake!
Thank you to Lauren and Desaray for sharing their big day!
Happy Monday and please let me know what you think of the new design. ox.
