Virginia Wedding Inspiration- El Fresco Charm Part 2

Styled shoots are a creative way for photographers, stylists, and other wedding pros, to show off their visions and to inspire readers for their own wedding planning.

Today’s featured shoot, part 2 of last week’s featured shoot, is a focus on the charm of an el fresco wedding reception with seriously elegant details, and was the vision of Engagements RVA staged at Historic Leafwood in Saluda, Virginia.

What we love:

The organic setting among large black walnut and pecan trees, not to mention the blue and silver theme echoed in the linens, table settings, silver chargers, and even the cake!

A mouth watering menu of crab cakes, shrimp and grits, gives a nod to the coastal Virginia area that this venue is located in.

And how cute is the labadoodle?
