California Chic in Charlottesville + Relaxed in Virginia

We do the research so you don’t have to: inspiring real Washington weddings from our favorite blogs.

Think this looks like a California wedding? Think again! Photograph by Korie Lynn Photography

When we first looked at this real wedding, photographed by Korie Lynn Photography, we thought the venue had to be in California—it had that sunkissed feel we all swoon over. And then we noticed that it actually took place in Charlottesville, at Keswick Vineyards. Such a lively pink-and-aqua color scheme (we’re hoping this palette really takes off around here), and that sweets station is just so, well, sweet.

Weddings in the Washington area have a reputation of being über-traditional and super-conservative. So we were delighted to see this Virginia (yes, Charlottesville again) wedding on Offbeat Bride. The use of fabric flowers is fantastic, and we love the shot of the guests just hanging out at the pool—what could be better?
Offbeat Bride

This bride looks straight out of a 1940s noir—she pulls of that retro look so effortlessly (and rocks those red lips!). And the photos of the bride’s father conducting all the guests in singing “Bohemian Rhapsody”? Hilarious.
