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!

The Wedding Planner Magazine Cover Sneak Peek!

Comments: 2

So thrilled to give a sneak peek of the latest The Wedding Planner Magazine cover. We’re always busy bees at Easton, but this is one of our favorite wedding projects during the season. We team up to create a wedding planning guide specifically for Charlottesville brides, either having a destination wedding in Charlottesville or local brides, to give them a seamless event design concept.

We can’t wait to share our real wedding at a stunning private estate, as well as a beautiful wedding at our fabulous Pippin Hill Farm and Vineyards, and weddings at Belle Haven, Tuckahoe Plantation and a private farm.

We loved styling the cover,  photographed by Eric Kelley with florals by Southern Blooms, a beautiful Monique L’huillier Dress, Jewels by New York Designer Kira Kira, Make-up by Lora Kelley and Hair by Charlotte.

Easton Events Named TOP 10 Most Influential Wedding Designer by The Knot Magazine

Comments: 0

Lynn Easton Andrews was named as one of the top 10 most influential wedding/event designers by The Knot Magazine and her work as a tastemaker is highlighted in the summer issue of The Knot.

The Knot also paid us a huge compliment by making Pippin Hill Farm, co-owned by Lynn and Hubby, Dean Andrews, the first “on location” site for a two day shoot and additionally coming on location to interview Lynn for the Knot Live TV.

The first day was a fashion shoot with the always wonderful Eric Kelley and the next day Jen Fariello worked her normal magic on a styled shoot by Lynn and her team at Easton Events with florals by Southern Blooms. The printed suite by Rock Paper Scissors was “killer” good. Thanks to all of our wonderful vendors for helping us pull together all of the details.

Read more about the photo shoot and video interview and be sure to check out Lynn’s interview on The Knot Live.

A Charleston Spring Brunch featured in The Local Palate

I was thrilled to be asked by The Local Palate to be a contributor for the April Issue. Not only do I love this publication, but I am a bit enchanted with the topic at hand – how to host a spring brunch.  I love gathering my nearest and dearest for lingering afternoons full of laughter and stories. I find the trick to a successful brunch is setting a lovely and cozy table paired with a heart warming menu and a festive spring cocktail.

We especially enjoyed developing this story at our boutique hotel in Charleston, S.C.,  Zero George. I recommend picking up a copy of the magazine as it is full of fresh southern food trends and “in the know” regional recommendations.

More of the story and some of my entertaining tips are shared below… Cheers to the first official day of Spring!
