Welcome back to the third and final installment of our inspiration shoot. For this last shoot we all got up at 5am (earlier for Jamie and her crew) to prepare everything, just for you :). It was a good idea we did though, as even at that early hour it was still quite warm and humid–a very typical Virginia summer. But everyone, especially our lovely talent, handled it with aplomb.

Everything turned out beautifully, and today we’re highlighting the happy couple’s intimate reception held in the hidden-gem-of-a-garden at the gorgeous Clifton Inn. If you haven’t already seen them, be sure to check out the proposal, and the engagement party. Oh, and the awesome feature on What Junebug Loves!

Once again, our sincere thanks to the fab team for donating their time, talent, and goods to make this everything it could be. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Love the guests names written on mirrored end tables!

Love the ombre!

Whoo-hoo! And the happy couple rides off into the sunset. Or to lunch. Either way, they’re doing it in style thanks to our ’85 Baby Benz making its debut appearance. 🙂

It was worth all the sleep deprivation (yawn), mosquito bites (ouch), blood (damn mosquitos), sweat (lots of it) and tears (happy ones to be sure) –  we are so incredibly psyched about how fun this shoot was with everyone and feel so lucky and honored to have been a part of it all. Above all, we want to thank to the fabulous ladies of Simply Chic Events – Jamie, Jessica, Kate & Claire – it was ultimately your dream and inspiration and we can’t thank you enough for including us as collaborators on your shoot and trusting us to capture your vision. So when can we do it all again? Ha! ;-D

With Great Joy,
