AN EXQUISITE GOODSTONE INN WEDDING
E & R hosted their dreamy, tented Goodstone Inn wedding celebration with the rolling hills of picturesque Middleburg, Virginia, as a sublimely beautiful backdrop. With a history of hospitality dating back decades and graciously outfitted with French and English decor, Goodstone Inn’s historic cottages provided quintessential countryside estate accommodations for family and friends.

GOODSTONE INN WEDDING RECEPTION
Uniquely romantic, an ivy wall set the stage as guests were welcomed and invited to be seated for this Goodstone Inn wedding. Stepping to the peaceful strumming of the violin & guitar, the bridal party processed down a white flower-flanked aisle, with E & R joining hands under the eaves of ivy to say their vows. After the ceremony, guests retreated to the cool shade of the pergola for cocktail hour poolside, where they enjoyed refreshing custom cocktails, champagne and local farm-to table inspired hors d’oeuvres passed on vintage trays. Later, pastoral views of the surrounding countryside provided the perfect backdrop for their Goodstone Inn wedding reception. Entering under a canopy of flowers graced by a sea of lanterns on either side, guests stepped into the sailcloth tent featuring french blue velvet linens and on to a gorgeous wood-plank floor. After a delectable three-course dinner, guests danced the night away under the stars.
DESIGN & DETAILS
Wedding design inspiration was drawn from the couple’s past and present. Featuring a toile pattern and hand drawn renderings of the inn, Washington D.C. (where the couple resides in Capitol Hill) and their beloved pup, Zuni, their bespoke Goodstone Inn wedding invitations set the scene. A custom crest married their names on gift tags and cocktail napkins, while Zuni’s likeness graced cocktail stirrers. Under the tent and for cocktail hour, the leather and velvet lounges, carefully-curated collections on the bar backs, and gorgeous floor-to-ceiling mirrored seating charts drew inspiration from the couple’s time in Colorado at Hotel Jerome, one of their favorite escapes in Aspen. This Goodstone Inn wedding was one for the books!
