Northern Virginia Styled Bridal Brunch

Sit tight ladies, ‘cause we’ve got something beautiful to show you today! Hues of blush pink, blue and vintage décor details set the tone on today’s featured bridal shoot. Event planner Glory Barbaris wanted to incorporate beautiful details, colors, and textures from the luxury stoneware into a simple yet elegant tablescape that brought the warmth of Spring and Summer in a light and airy atmosphere. I love the understated elegance of the bride’s gown-it’s modern yet classy design is gorgeous. Absolutely adored the bouquet as well! From the beautifully designed tablescapes to the gorgeous details, this bridal brunch is definitely not one you should miss. I’m also a huge fan of Chic, Sophisticated & Elegant designs, and so I was delighted to see it complement the overall décor. Want to see more of this styled shoot?

We’re All About the Details!

There are so many details that I love from this event, and a couple, in particular, stood out to me. The gorgeous floral backdrop was such a beautiful detail that literally light up the room. I also loved the table setting, especially the serveware (luxury stoneware dishes and pitchers). I love the colors, textures and the look of them that really made the room pop. I also love the white drapery, vintage chairs, and the bridal gown–everything was so beautiful!

Take this Advice

Planning a wedding (or any special event) can be overwhelming, there’s so much to think about and consider from guest experience to the bride and groom. I think the most important advice I can give to couples still in the planning process is to have trust in the process; trust your planner, designer, coordinator–they know what they’re doing. Don’t get to hung up or stressed out about the details (not if you have a planner or stylist). If you are planning your wedding yourself without the help of a professional, really think about your budget, think about what you both want, must-haves vs. nice-to-haves, and really narrow it down to what’s important. At the end of the day, t his is about YOU and no one else. remember to have fun throughout the process, it is so easy to lose sight of the big picture so I would say, definitely, take it one day at a time. Have fun, do what makes you happy, and remember that it all goes by fast, so be in the moment–from planning to ‘I Do’. ~Glory Barbaris/Wedding Vendor
