For our beyond Hampton Roads readers, Mount Trashmore (yes, it's really called that) is actually a real landfill transformed into a beautiful park. Growing up, I remember many picnics and even braving the crazy 4th of July traffic just to see the fireworks there. This manmade mountain is funny enough the highest point in all of Virginia Beach, so you have quite the view if you get to the park early enough! (Another local insider secret: Though now that Town Center is built up, the top of its parking garages also offers a phenomenal view of Mount Trashy's fireworks!)
So for this month's local inspiration board, we are celebrating our Independence Day with some local fireworks, classic wedding details, and a whole lotta sparkle! Subtle red, off-white, and blue pops of color can give any wedding a touch of the patriotic without going overboard. And pair it with a sparkly metallic? You've got a winning combination for an elegant summer celebration!
