A Romantic, Southern Wedding at Morais Vineyards & Winery in Bealeton, Virginia
Lauren Turner (24 and a banquet and catering sales manager for Fauquier Springs Country Club) and Justin Bricklen (31 and an United States Air Force dental lab technician) wanted their wedding to have a very romantic, southern look. "I wanted everything to be soft and luxurious feeling," Lauren explains. A color palette of blush, gold, and ivory carried throughout the table displays, floral arrangements, wedding cake, and bridesmaid's dresses helped to bring the theme to life. Lauren chose a very glamorous look for her bridal style, choosing a pearl colored modified mermaid gown with a sweetheart neckline. The bridesmaids wore blush strapless gowns from David's Bridal, along with pearl and blush drop earrings from Kate Spade that Lauren gave to them as gifts. The couple exchanged vows in a traditional ceremony at St. James Episcopal Church in Old Town Warrenton, surrounded by beautiful stained glass windows. The reception was held at Morais Vineyards, in their gorgeous ballroom. Each table was decorated with a mixture of tall trumpet vases and short square glass vases filled with hydrangeas and garden roses. After dinner everyone enjoyed the gorgeous cake covered in ruffles, lace, and blush pink icing.
