“Fairytales can come true. They did for me.” says our bride from our real wedding this week.
From the moment Charles and Brittany met, there was tons of surprises along the way. When Charles proposed, he swept Brittany off her feet, literally, with a surprise helicopter ride. The helicopter landed right on Morais Vineyard in Bealeton, Virginia where she saw Charles waiting down on one knee with a bouquet of roses.
There was no question when it came time to plan the wedding that they wanted their guests to have the same experience – an escape to a beautiful setting, and a celebration full of romance. They selected the place right where Charles made Brittany’s dreams come true- Morais Vineyards, which is filled with sweeping landscapes and european Portuguese architecture.
The color palette was inspired by the Great Gatsby, while incorporating their surroundings of the winery landscapes into the details.
A few of their favorite things…
Bride says: The entirely custom suite of invitations and printed goods, especially the custom monogram.
Groom says: The tented ‘Happily Ever After Party’ and, of course, our helicopter send-off.
“It was a magical day full of love and, we think, memorable, not just to us, but to our family and friends as well. It was everything we could have ever dreamed of and more.”-Brittany and Charles
