Alexis and Ryan
Alexis & Ryan decided that having their best friends and closest family enjoy an intimate day together was one of the most important things when deciding the style of their wedding. Their love for good food and good wine led them straight to The Barns at Hamilton Station Vineyard. Alexis wanted their wedding to feel as welcoming as the vineyard’s rustic barn.
Color was a big inspiration for Alexis. She chose deep reds and burgundy for their fall wedding. The weather could not have been more perfect for their outdoor ceremony! Using rustic doors and tons of antique hydrangeas, crates and reclaimed fence sections, we created a unique ceremony site.
Alexis wanted to incorporate monograms as an element of southern charm. Using a variety of letters that Alexis collected over the years, we created a fun fireplace mantel. Alexis even had a letter M signed by guests for their guest book.
Alexis carried antique hydrangeas, dahlias, roses, spray roses and lysimachia with a collar of dusty miller. The bridesmaids carried a mix of ivory, pink and burgundy flowers to accent the unique combination of ivory, pink and patterned bridesmaids dresses. This wedding had so many beautiful and unique details that were a reflection of Alexis and Ryan’s personalities.
