R & P celebrated their beautiful Goodstone Inn wedding day with their closest family and friends – and when you have hearts as kind as theirs, it comes as no surprise that half of their guest list was in their bridal party! Located in historic hunt country, Goodstone Inn provided a bucolic backdrop for their small wedding in Middleburg, Virginia. With most guests staying on property, we curated a welcome bag full of the bride and her family’s favorite Texas-style treats. Our K Bella Bride grew up with fond memories of her mother’s blue & white ginger jar collection and we knew that was an element that we wanted to incorporate within the design. As a couple, R + P have a strong affinity for a more mid-century modern, contrasting style; so, we married both into the design: incorporating blue and white ginger jars with white, matte black and lattice urns, softened by a light and airy palette.
Surrounded by blooms and the peaceful intonations of a solo cellist, the couple said their “I do’s” in front of a romantic ivy-and-rose-covered wall, live-streamed for family and friends not present. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed libations and scrumptious hors d’oeuvres by the pool. A sailcloth tent, nestled in the Woodsy Garden (a nod to the couple’s love of sailing), welcomed guests to dine and dance the night away. A vintage typewriter and postal porter table served double duty – inviting guests to leave the couple a note, while acknowledging our bride’s vocation as a speech writer. After dinner, champagne toasts and their favorite donuts, R + P thanked guests at the end of the night with their own ginger jar keepsake, tied with a classic black silk ribbon. We were so honored to witness the love that surrounds our couple and their wonderful family. Congratulations R + P, we send you nothing but the very best wishes for what we know will be a life full of love!
