Elegant Spring Wedding Inspiration at Rust Manor in Leesburg, Virginia

20160418_Workshop_006.jpg

It's been so warm around here lately, and I'm anxious for spring to officially be here! Spring flowers are some of my favorites - huge ranunculus, pollen-tinged tulips, delicate sweet peas - there's so much to love. This wedding shoot drew its design inspiration from that first gust of fresh spring breeze - clean and crisp and hinting at the warmth to come. We played with pairing some traditional elements with clean lines and modern typography.  The Rust Manor in Leesburg, Virginia proved to be a beautiful location lush with boxwoods and historic details. 

It was originally featured on Style Me Pretty!

Elegant Washington DC Wedding at Washington Golf and Country Club | Chessie and Simon

mallory joyce design wedding

Chessie and Simon's wedding was the epitome of understated elegance, which I feel like Chessie herself embodies on a daily basis. I loved planning and designing their wedding in DC. I especially loved pairing Chessie's looser, full, garden-inspired bouquet with her slim, modern gown. Also, her bridesmaids had such killer style! It was all tres chic and definitely one of my favorite fall weddings to date.

We kept the details very intentional and focused on a few key areas - fashion, paper, and a streamlined tablescape with lush flowers. Script Merchant took one of Chessie and Simon's family insignia and recreated it as a crest, and we paired her beautiful script calligraphy with handmade, deckled edge papers in a rich sepia tone that felt fresh yet historic.  Since the venue itself already had a lot of pattern going on, we chose a textured cream linen and blind-patterned china to add depth to the place settings without introducing more color. That allowed us to bring in a lot of interesting texture and some deeper tones to the table flowers. I truly loved the design of this wedding but I think what I cherished more was Chessie and her mother's sincere hospitality throughout the weekend. They treated me like family and it's something I'll never forget!

Coco and Oliver's Classic Southern Wedding: Charlottesville Wedding Planner

Mallory Joyce Charlottesville Wedding

Courtney and Oliver were married on a gorgeous June day at Pippin Hill Farm in Charlottesville, Virginia. Courtney, who works in fashion, wore an amazing Enzoani lace gown. And who can resist Oliver and his gents in their white dinner jackets? The details of the day were classically southern and timelessly elegant. As a UVA alum myself, I loved working with two fellow Wahoos! Best wishes to Coco and Ollie!

You can see more of this wedding on Snippet & Ink and Borrowed & Blue.
