Blue Valley Vineyard and Winery in Delaplane, Virginia with its sprawling grounds and old-world appeal made for the perfect setting for today’s lush green and gold – modern meets bohemian- wedding inspiration. Drawing inspiration from the picturesque Virginia countryside in early summer, Terry Kaye Events combined natural elements with lush green hues dripping in amaranths, whimsical woven sphere’s, and accents of gold, to create a yin/yang effect contrasting between soft and hard lines. Candice Adelle Photography captured all magnificence that you see today.
From the Photographer:
Timeless Virginia Countryside Elegance When coordinating this wedding shoot, Terry Kaye, owner of Terry Kaye Events drew her inspiration from the scenic Virginia countryside during the early summer months. Lush green colors married with natural elements like stone, wooden barrels and chrome vessels created a yin/yang effect of soft and hard lines. Gold (a soft, pliable metal) was used throughout as an accent color.
The location was the family owned and operated Blue Valley Winery in Delaplane, Virginia. A gravel driveway leads up to the all-stone exterior of the main building behind which you find the sprawling grounds of the winery. With a modern yet rustic feel, the building consists of three levels, each with their own unique features. The main level and upper tier offer clean lines, a calming color palette, modern furniture and decor alongside an amazing view of the countryside. The lower level houses the winery’s barrel room and chrome processing tanks and the cave room is a photographer’s dream. The stone walls, wooden tables and chairs with metallic studs reminded you that the dinner setting was indeed a wine cellar and the soft overflowing centerpieces brought the lush green from the exterior vineyard inside.
Speaking of which, the grounds were spectacular. We used circular accents, some made from interwoven gold and others of green moss, alongside the linear vineyard paths to accent the contrast between soft and hard.
The Groom wore a exquisite custom-made 1812 Society black tuxedo personalized with his name embroidered under his collar. The bride wore two gowns: the first a blush pink mermaid gown courtesy of Blush Bridal Boutique and the second a stunning 1970’s vintage gown with fluted sleeves borrowed from Sandra Packwood’s (of DeJaVu) private collection. We adorned her in Anne Sportun jewels and added some pops of green and gold with affordable yet stylish Bourbon and Bowties bangles courtesy of Carter and Spence. Her make-up, styled by Les Bourgeois, was minimal and her hair was styled in a long side ponytail curled in a way representative of an architectural column. When her hair unraveled into soft curls beneath the floral headpiece and combined with the vintage gown, the bride was the quintessential classic beauty.
Sarena Ballard of Sarena Floral Design created the beautiful flowers and Candice Adelle Photography captured every moment and detail perfectly. Lora Gorkin, owner of Gateau, decorated a rounded three-tiered cake with golden spheres, succulence and amaranths delivering a classic, elegant confection.
