A Balanced Blend at Bold North Cellars in Alexandria
Paige and Dan savor a private moment under a sumptuous ceremony arbor; 651 Studio & Floral Designs used more than 400 blooms, including chrysanthemums and carnations, roses and ranunculus, in a spectrum from pale ivory to golden yellow and coral. A glorious array of florals from Joyful Blooms Flower Co. lines the aisle and includes dahlias, zinnias, roses and various greenery.
Paint My Wedding Day creates unique, on-the-spot artwork for the bride and groom to preserve their special day.
The invitation from Merimoi Press features a delightful illustration that gives guests a taste of what’s to come.
Paige’s tousled tresses are laced with dainty roses and leafy sprigs for a breezy look that’s perfect for a summer day.
Paige’s opulent bouquet spotlights spikey Sonic Boom dahlia blossoms, Mustard and Butterscotch roses and delicate oncidium orchids.
Dan is dressed to impress in a custom cranberry suit from The Dashery and a necktie that continues the floral theme. His cheery boutonniere is a bright highlight of rose, zinnia and orchid.
The custom-made rectilinear ceremony backdrop, carrying through the coral, peach and ivory palette, puts the cake center stage. Using a variation on the backdrop’s colors and striking geometric design, dough-phoria takes it to the next level. Setting this tableau in the lush summer landscape, with lavish florals and trailing vines, combines modern design with the exuberance of nature.
Details make the difference: Paige’s fun and funky polymer clay earrings are a specialty of Love, Loon Creative. On her finger: a diamond sparkler from Continental Diamond.
Under a brilliant blue sky, the head reception table awaits with a spectacular display by Bold North Cellars. (BNC provides several options for floral centerpieces for the reception.) Included in this flawless arrangement are roses, dahlias, ranunculus, craspedia, tansy, lisianthus, cremons and native grasses.
"A perfectly balanced blend of nature and art, an event as unique as the two of you coming together beautifully—just as the perfect blend and balance is important to assure wine quality." —Paige Meier, owner, The Events Paige
Carlos Creek Winery, part of Bold North Cellars, makes wines that fit the moment, whether you’re raising a toast or relaxing on the patio. This crisp white is a fresh choice for a sunny afternoon.
The picture-perfect tablescape gets an extra lift with a wicker charger, reflecting the rustic setting. Sage green and ivory plates topped with a coral napkin and golden posy complete the look.
A clean white background with simple typography lets the details shine in the stationery suite. The couple’s names, in a soft green, pick up the colors of the vineyard illustration; a charming bride-and-groom image lines the envelope, and a wax seal keeps it all tucked safely inside.
Paige’s breathtaking bouquet is forever in bloom, thanks to the talents of Paint My Wedding Day.
In her luxe made-to-order “Noah” gown from Grace Loves Lace, Paige joins Dan for an intimate stroll among the vines.
