DJ & Bevin
It was probably the most ideal August day we could have prayed for. Sunny skies and temperature in the 80s. I only hope for this weather to continue for the rest of my August brides. :) DJ and Bevin chose the gorgeous Oatlands Plantation in Leesburg, VA as their wedding venue. Such a classy space with the formal gardens covered in summer blooms and the tent overlooking the amazing manor house. One aspect of Oatlands Plantation that I love is that they entertain the wedding guests during the cocktail hour by giving them a free tour of the house. I know some guests think that cocktail hour drags on forever with family formals taking place, so this is a great way to get their mind off of the time and enjoy the venue space inside and out.
Baseball fans, you will enjoy this post! We have a groom who is a fan of the Cardinals and a bride who is a fan of the Nationals! It’s a fun rival of course. ;) I loved hearing more about their sport rivalry during the toasts. Basically, they love any excuse to tailgate with family and friends and have a great time whether is a game or a concert … with DJ’s famous wings of course. I must try these now after hearing several people talk about it during the wedding! Haha! They must be amazing! The reception was one big party! Not to mention, the live band was A-MAZ-ING! One of my all time favorite bands … I really cannot say enough great things about them! They kept the dance floor packed the entire night with the guests wanting for more! They played everything from Frank Sinatra to Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk. Great variety for all ages! One sweet thing was that DJ coordinated with the band and sang a surprise song for Bevin. :) He proposed to Bevin in England and so it was fitting to sing a Beatles song. During the song, I looked over at Bevin with tears filling her eyes and a smile that could been seen a mile away. To say the least, it was such a surprise and so meaningful. :) Kudos to DJ!!!
Thank you DJ And Bevin for giving me the honor of documenting your garden wedding! It was classy, fun and perfect! CONGRATS and enjoy some of my favorites!!! xoxo!
