Museum of the Shenandoah Valley Wedding, Winchester VA


Our inspiration for this shoot was to play homage to the antiquity that Virginia and our many beautiful wedding venues offer. We aimed to capture the timelessness of the Shenandoah Valley while still looking forward and introducing new ideas for pieces from the past.

Unique floral designs included the tea cup ring-bearer alternative, overhead hanging floral installation, and floral halos. Kicking up the styles indicative of the modern garden wedding the flowers had a new unique and playful spin. Varieties included a large percentage of USA and home-grown Virginia florals such as Heirloom Peonies, Amaranthus, Garden Roses, Poppies, Cymbidium Orchids, James Storei Orchids, Ranunculus, Freesia, and more.

Legacy items included vintage china, antique silver flatware, three generation hand-crafted quilts, heirloom peonies, treasured family photographs, vintage automobile, and an hors d’oeuvres hour serenading by the sounds of mandolin.Special professional touches include a fabulous six tier cake, a 7’ overhead floral installation for the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley’s timeless pink pavilion, and custom designed wedding invitation and signage.

We hope you enjoy and our inspired by our shoot.
