A Beautiful Vintage-Themed Wedding at the Estate at River Run

The Georgian-inspired architecture and elegant columns and constructed details of the venue lent the perfect aesthetic touch to this elegant wedding photoshoot.

Many of the details came from local vintage stores, down to the wooden pews that served as seating at the intimate outdoor tablescape.

Elegant Vintage Wedding Details

Some were family heirlooms, like the beautiful blue Alexandrite ring worn by the bride.

The bride wore a fascinator-style veil and a one-of-a-kind tea-length custom Justin Alexander gown with long sleeves and a flat ribbon belt—a design one might imagine on Audrey Hepburn.

Wedding with Grand Architecture at the Estate at River Run

The architecture, with grand airy windows overlooking the James River and a crystal chandelier, was beautifully complemented by structural floral masterpieces like the flower sculpture arched over the piano. This glamorous wedding venue was the perfect setting for the talented wedding vendors of Virginia Wine Country who created this vintage style wedding tableau.

Vintage pink flutes formed a trendy champagne tower beside the table.

A blue Vespa provided the perfect getaway for the couple.

Soft Florals and Moss Accents for a Wedding Tablescape

Bowls of soft moss decorated the tablescape next to and knotted napkins laid over scalloped plates.

Soft pink, white, yellow and even lilac blooms accented the table settings alongside the moss.
