Glamorous Jewel-Toned Vow Renewal with Bouquet Goals

Though LaTonya and Derrick had already been married five years, they didn't get to experience the joy of a wedding with their family, friends, and particularly their daughters. So with the help of Touche Weddings and Events, they planned an energy-packed glamorous celebration to remember at the Hilton Garden Inn Riverfront in Suffolk. From both dads walking the bride down the aisle to a special birthday moment (and cake!) for LaTonya's mother, there were heartfelt moments in abundance on their special day saying "I Still Do!"

Inspired by gorgeous jewel tones like red and wine, we love the groom's stylish burgundy suit with black lapels complemented by the bridesmaids' dresses captured by Josh Boone Photography. The showstopper bouquets and florals with ostrich and pheasant feathers paired with proteas, dahlias, and dried lotus pods will make any fall-loving couple swoon! Between the fab dance party and the sweet smiles between husband and wife, we can't get enough of LaTonya and Derrick's wedding. We wanted to put on our dancing shoes and pick up some beats with the DJ!

Colorful Adventure-Inspired Wedding

As an alumna of William and Mary, Melissa knew the minute Tony proposed that Wren Chapel and the Alumni House would be the perfect locations to say "I Do" and celebrate. Since they're adventurous spirits (they even got engaged while on a hike together!), the theme of outdoors subtly wove through their colorful fall Williamsburg wedding captured by Ryann Winn Photography.

With wedding favors like adorable forest green enamel camping mugs filled with hot cocoa packets, vibrant florals with pops of coral, burgundy red, blackberry, and blush pink, and a rustic tree-inspired wedding cake with two kayaks as a cake topper, exploration and adventure set the tone for this sweet wedding on its biggest journey yet. Surrounded by their closest loved ones, Melissa and Tony honored each other in simple cozy and chic style.

Emerald Green and Gold Holiday Inspired Winter Wedding

When Jennifer first saw Jasen, she found herself looking at a popular Richmond DJ whom she never imagined would glance her way. Two weeks later, when fate brought them a second chance meeting, he asked for her number and the rest is history. Together, their smiles light up a room. From serious conversations to laughter and the small in-between moments that define their joyful relationship, they have learned that the most important thing is to always make time for each other especially with their busy careers.

So when it came time to plan their winter wedding, Jennifer and Jasen envisioned an elegant, black-tie affair with emerald green and gold accents. The Mill at Fine Creek added a classic backdrop to this beautiful day, and Meredith Sledge Photography captured each moment perfectly. We love the understated but gorgeous florals, Jennifer's dreamy lace dress with an illusion back, Jasen's classic felt wool top hat, and definitely the ceremony swag arch filled with winter berries and pine in front of timeless Christmas trees with twinkle lights befitting of the most perfect holiday wedding. If this doesn't celebrate the season and love, we don't know what will!

Curated from Etsy, we plucked the most stellar finds for any couple who reads their horoscopes every week, adores romantic moonlit backyard picnics, and looks to the sky for creative inspiration.

Fun Colorful Ballroom Wedding with Chic Lucky Charms Macarons

Fun, fun, fun, and a whole lot of color! Mike and Maggie's playfully chic day was all about vibrant celebration and memorable amusement. Against the backdrop of the classic John Marshall Ballroom in Richmond, modern aesthetic took over with bright greenery popped with fuchsia, red orange, cornflower blue, and other vivid hues. From a giant and eclectically decorated escort card tree overflowing with flowers, to Lucky Charms macarons for everyone's sweet teeth, to a faux turf aisle runner and photo booth backdrop, life and love exploded in the River City.

Designed by Alyson Taylor Events and captured by Abigail Volkmann Photography, the energy and happiness exuded from Maggie and Mike was contagious to all of their wedding guests. The couple's shared love for biking came through in a big way at the reception (just check out that adult-sized tricycle entrance!) and their love for family showed at the ceremony (can we talk about Maggie's adorable aunt-turned-fabulous-flower girl?!). With a nod to old time traditions and joy at the future ahead, this modern eclectic day is inspiring to all of us who love to live life colorfully!
