Real Wedding Wednesday: Bull Run Golf Club Complementary Cheer

It’s not everyday you see weddings take on such bright, bold, complementary colors! Props to Hilary and Marcus, our real wedding celebrities this week, who confidently donned their royal blues and fiery oranges just as easily as they conquered the slight interruption of a rain shower to an otherwise sunny day at Bull Run Golf Club! Hilary wore her mother’s wedding veil on this day, keeping the family heirloom alive and present as it danced in the occasional breeze. The couple continued with their originality through the night, where they performed their bride-and-groom cake-cutting duties with a long, thin sword! Betcha didn’t see that one coming. A shout out to Chelsea Schaefer Photography, who effortlessly captured the couple’s sweet moments to express just how well they compliment one another!

Hilary and Marcus make quite the vibrant pair, and without our strong team of vendors, we alone could not have given them such a spunky, lavish celebration! Here’s to more complementary cheer in years to come!

Real Wedding Wednesday: Jenn & Corey

It’s the best day of the week: Real Wedding Wednesday! Jenn & Corey’s story is just as beautiful as their wedding day. This super sweet couple met at George Mason, where they were both in the ROTC program. After college, Jenn was stationed in Hawaii and then Guam. However, the couple’s love held tight! Corey traveled all over the world to see Jenn, until they decided to settle down together in Virginia. Their wedding, photographed by the amazing Kelly Ewell Photography, was held locally at the Piedmont Club.
