Palm Springs-Esque Elopement at Oatlands Plantation in VA

Oct 24, 2020

Allie & Pete eloped this past summer at Oatlands Historic Home and Gardens in Leesburg, VA. While I always strive to have images published on behalf of my client, it’s certainly not my only goal but more of an added bonus. See, I know just how much hard work they and all their amazing vendors put in to making this day a reality. Stephanie from SRS Events worked tirelessly to coordinate the entire team and ensure a flawless execution of events. She, of course, pulled it off without a hitch as you’ll see in the image below. So much so, that we were able to get this one picked up by the amazing Wedding Chicks!

From Wedding Chicks: “Allie and Pete were set for a destination wedding in Palm Springs. However, due to Covid, of course their travel and wedding plans become derailed. Determined not to let Covid stop them from marrying, they along with their wedding planner, created a Palm Springs-esque elopement on their wedding date in their hometown within Virginia.

The bright, vibrant colors Allie loves so much made an appearance, along with using some elements from their originally planned day, like the table linen and stationery and menus. Enlisting a local florist to create florals in their bright and cheery color scheme, she incorporated roses, peonies, dahlias, dried palmetto, bunny tails, and pampas grass, along with Allie’s favorite flowers, butterfly and peach ranunculus and free spirit roses. With Allie’s best friend and maid of honor serving as officiant, they were thrilled to wed and celebrate their love!

SRS Events planned every detail, Eight Tree Street Floral Design created all of the amazing florals and Leah Letters and Wild Hearts Design Co created the stationery for this cheery day at Little Oatlands. You can see all the images in the full gallery and read on to hear more of this wedding and love story.”
