A Perfect Wedding Day in the Blue Ridge Mountains
From the wedding planner, Verge Events:
Kellie and Randy wanted a comfortable lunch reception for their guests who traveled from all over. We chose a palette of red and dark teal to accentuate the gardens of The Farm at Old Edwards. Teal is a special color for Kellie, a gynecologic oncologist, as it is the ovarian cancer awareness color. The beautiful ceremony gardens are beautiful on their own so we chose to accent specific key areas.
Hung down the aisle were sweet canning jars filled with a spectrum of red flowers and tied with teal ribbon.
Canning jars with red flowers were hung with teal ribbon at various lengths from the pergola. This wedding was not just the joining of Kellie and Randy in marriage but the uniting of a family. Kellie and her 2 year old son Luke walked to meet Randy who was waiting halfway down the aisle before walking the rest of the way to the altar as a family.
We placed 5 bottles of wine on a table that guests were instructed to sign and the new couple will drink on their next five anniversaries.
The reception took place in The Pavilion, a beautiful glass and beam structure which had a mix of round and square tables that were accented by various mercury glass containers filled with red flowers, a waterfall teal napkin and mini potted succulent favors.
We made teal and red felt flower pillows for the benches along the terrace to invite guests to utilize both the inside and outside spaces. Their cake featured a cascade of vibrant red flowers and teal ribbon. Kellie LOVES ice cream so we had an ice cream bar in addition to cake where guests could build their own sundaes.
