Liz and Chris’s Williamsburg Winery wedding was the culmination of years of love! After meeting in law school at William and Mary, this couple would often take trips to the Williamsburg Winery for a short getaway from the stresses of life. They decided to celebrate their new life together at a place that was both comfortable and personal to them, making it the perfect venue for their wedding! Small details brought out the sweet nature of the couple; from the soft lace of the wedding gown to the groom’s personalized initial cufflinks, their wedding was personal and classic. After a simple outdoor ceremony, the party moved inside for an elegant reception. Twinkling string lights illuminated the dance floor where the bride and groom’s closest family and friends danced the night away!

Williamsburg Winery Wedding on Let's Wed Hampton Roads

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

From the Bride: Elegant springtime winery wedding. The winery itself was a beautiful venue that needed little decoration. We used simple floral arrangements, mercury glass vases and candle holders, silver chargers, and some wine cork details throughout the space.

What is your best piece of advice for other local brides?

Do as much in advance as possible so you can enjoy the weeks and days leading up to the wedding. Because we started planning the details several months in advance, we were able to spend time relaxing with family and friends the day or so before the wedding.
