Williamsburg weddings lend themselves to so much beauty. The area is filled with history, and so many of the locations feature brick and offset nooks and crannies for fun photos as you will see here. We also adore what the bride, Sarah, had to say about her special day:
The inspiration for our wedding was that we simply wanted our wedding to be a celebration of marriage and of what God has done in our lives. I am from the Williamsburg area, and I wanted to allow people traveling from out of town to experience all the history around the area. We also wanted friends who didn’t know each other to feel like family. About a month before the wedding, I was still unsure of what I wanted to centerpieces to be. One day it came to me that we could spray paint pineapples for our main centerpiece because Williamsburg is filled with pineapples, and it is the symbol of hospitality. We made directional signs for the walkways that led to the Alumni house and also hung globe lights over the dance floor. These small touches added a homey feel to the reception that invited people to become “family.”
So sweet! Here are a few of my favorite things about this classic Williamsburg wedding:
- Sarah’s first look with her bridesmaids is so precious. What a great idea, and I adore the expressions on their faces – so genuine!
- The “S&J” sign at the reception is SO gorgeous and unexpected. What a perfect touch with high impact.
- As Sarah mentioned, the gold-painted accessories are so fun – both the bottles and the pineapples. Plus, the globe lights at the reception add such a fun touch.
Enjoy this lovely wedding today!
