Sunset Hues for Fall

I think that fall weddings can be lush and romantic – without having to be kitschy or overly theme-y. Brides are not limited to pumpkins filled with orange and red flowers.

Softer, more romantic, antique tones work beautifully for autumn events. Think of sunset hues. Seasonal foliage, softer greens, blush, peach, butter yellow, gold – can be just as seasonally appropriate as the bolder traditional tones.

Casey & Clay

Casey and Clay tied the knot on September 6, 2014. These newlyweds said their "I dos" at beautiful offsite church in Chapel Hill, and danced the night away in the Fearrington Barn.

We were officially introduced at the end of our sophomore year, but I left soon after to study... Full Post >

Virginia Wine Summit 2014

I recently returned from the Virginia Wine Summit in Richmond, and yep, I am pretty excited about the wine. It’s not just local, it’s really good. The Summit is a well organized event promoting Virginia, its wines, and its wine regions. For the event, I was asked to participate on a panel discussion about "Dark Horse" grape varieties. The opportunity was exciting because it deals with one of the most important issues in the American wine industry today: the necessity to move beyond... Full Post >
