What a magical day! Kennedy and Greg’s wedding at North Wales Farm in Warrenton, Virginia was truly that. We have been holding these beautiful images close to our hearts for months in anticipation of their exciting feature in Martha Stewart Weddings! We are so thrilled to now share more images from the wedding captured by the amazing Patricia Lyons.
The storybook setting is their family home and farm nestled in Virginia Hunt Country. The history of the home and the couple’s mutual love for the farm dramatically influenced our design and the layers of details throughout the wedding.
The ceremony took place in an unbelievable horse barn donning freshly cut tree branches from the farm and abundant seasonal blooms. After Kennedy and Greg exchanged their personally written vows, the guests were transported to the the Manor House for cocktails and dinner.
Cocktails were enjoyed on the back lawn among the magnolia trees admiring the bucolic view of the Virginia countryside. Guests were invited to find their table assignment by selecting their hand-calligraphed matchboxes, which inside held a note prompting them to “find their match”.
The dinner was entirely lit by 24 hanging candle chandeliers. The design was intended to be a feast for the senses with an eclectic mix of beautiful composed floral arrangements, curious objects, abundant candles, and bowls of exotic sweets, fruits, and nuts. The hand-hewn wood farm tables were gently polished with an airy open weave line, paired with upholstered chairs, and monogrammed napkins.
After the delicious locally inspired meal, the waiters passed small leather-tied scrolls to each of the guests inviting them to gather outside for a surprise. As the first guests made their way out of the tent, the night sky burst into a display of white fireworks. After a few minutes of enjoyment, we struck up the band and the after party in the dancing tent began!
We have been so lucky to plan with the Prentiss family for many years now, from Paige, the eldest daughter’s wedding, to Kennedy’s wedding, and most recently to the younger brother Michael’s rehearsal dinner celebration in Mexico. They are a warm, creative, thoughtful, and an absolutely delightful family! We so enjoyed spending time together while planning with Kennedy and Greg, and it is especially fun and rewarding to watch them as parents with their first baby boy.
Many many thanks to our incredible team!
