Jessica and Steve’s rustic chic wedding with beautiful homemade details was wonderful to be a part of. Their ceremony and wedding reception was held at River Farm in Alexandria, Virginia. See part 1 to check out their lovely outdoor ceremony, as well as their United With Love feature (ceremony) and (reception). In addition to the feminine styling, their reception had some wonderful touches, including personalized desserts and treats, a unique “guest book” and a surprise groom’s cake. It was wonderful to work with Victoria Ruan Photography, R&R Catering and the entire vendor team (see full list below).
Family photos were scattered throughout the farmhouse at River Farm. I love that in addition to photos of Jessica and Steve, they chose to display these old time photos of parents and grandparents.
Cocktail hour included delicious passed hors d’oeurves, like this crab cakes, from R&R Catering.
The flowers for the wedding were a combination of DIY floral designs made by the bride and Whole Foods. As we were setting up, I was so impressed by the flowers Jessica created. DIY flowers are not easy to do!
Later in the evening, Jessica and Steve cut their wedding cake and the surprise Groom’s Cake made by Fancy Cakes by Leslie!
Congratulations to Jessica and Steve and thank you to Victoria Ruan for capturing the day so beautifully! It was such a pleasure to be a part of your wedding.
