A Rustic, Glamorous Wedding at Riverside on the Potomac in Leesburg, Virginia
It's a beautiful thing when the worlds of rustic and glam collide. That's exactly what happened at the chic wedding of Molly McDonald (25 and a communication/HR professional) and Ryan Anderson (26 and a software engineer). Combining Southern hospitality and Irish charm, their classy affair in green and white took place at Riverside on the Potomac in Leesburg, Virginia. Florist Andrea Gagnon from LynnVale Studios created gorgeous designs using dinner plate dahlias, ivory roses, magnolia leaves, cinderella pumpkins and hypericum. These flower arrangements wreathed the wooden wedding arbor for the outdoor ceremony and adorned the farmhouse dining tables at the barn reception. Molly's French silk wedding dress was truly a showstopper, evoking Old Hollywood vibes as she danced the dougie with her father during their choreographed father-daughter dance that had guests cheering. Molly and Ryan's stunning celebration was perfectly captured by Rebekah J. Murray Photography. "I was so adamant that we have Rebekah as our photographer that I messaged her while we were booking our venue to make sure she was available for those dates," Molly says. On how she and Ryan made their style choices, Molly says, "We wanted to look back on our wedding in 50 years and still love all of the choices we made."
