Sammy and Nathan wanted their wedding to be a casual affair. "Pretty, but not fussy, with a lot of dancing." One of our favorite touches was that Sammy carried a locket with her mother's photo in her bouquet, since her mother passed away of cancer only a year before her wedding.
This entire Virginia wedding At Murray Hill was beautifully designed and put together by Holly Chapple Flowers. The flowers are breathtakingly beautiful. Read on to hear more from Holly Chapple Flowers and be sure to see all the images in the full gallery captured by Julie Massie.
Murray Hill is a breathtaking property situated on a bluff on the Potomac River. You are able to have your ceremony and cocktail hour on the bluff outside and your reception in the recently restored barn, that is absolutely beautiful.This fifty-seven acre estate provides tranquility and the natural beauty of the setting makes even the simplest event exceptional. You simply must check out this Virginia wedding venue.
On the decor from Julie Massie:While most brides I know spend hours per day flipping through Pinterest for wedding day inspiration, Sammy just spent time daydreaming about being Nathan's wife. When it came time to decide on color palattes and a "theme" for their wedding day, her only request was that it be reflecting of who they are, and that it incorporate a lot of color and LIFE. Just as they had hoped, their wedding was truly a reflection of their personalities. The flowers and centerpieces were beautiful, but not fussy.
Nathan is an avid outdoorsman, and loves nothing more than chopping wood to make a fire with. So they incorporated bits of wood (chopped by Nathan, of course) and tree stumps carved with initials in their decor. Their toasts were made with coke bottles, (their favorite drink) rather than champagne (although they did serve champagne later.) The entire day was completely lovely, and very "them."
