Timeless Wedding Filled Whimsical Details

Romantic and timeless are two words that come to mind when looking at the photos Elizabeth and Jon’s fall wedding at Oxon Hill Manor. The theme was filled with gold, greenery, lace, and vintage glam. Elizabeth’s handmade details were reflected in just about every aspect of the day.

The two welcomed their guests with a special greeter (Winston the horse!), live classical music, champagne. Elizabeth even put together a scarf basket for the ladies – how thoughtful!

Outside, in the gardens of the manor, the two had their best friends and family walk down the aisle with a book. A single long stem rose marked a special passage that the two selected for their wedding party to read allowed during the ceremony. Their family stood beside them with the wedding party as they said their vows . Elizabeth’s brother officiated the wedding and family members that had passed were represented with gold framed photographs around the ceremony site.

The bride and groom also had a special book for each guest. Inside was a handwritten note including their dinner seat and meal choice. Greenery and gold decorated the outdoor tent for the reception. Tables were numbered in gold on books with floral and candle lit centerpieces. The two had beautiful signature drinks named after their grandparents with “date” flags to decorate.

I have to sat that this one of most unique weddings I have ever published on this blog. I love it when couples take their creativity and combine it with their hobbies and interests – the result is always magical.
