Natalie and Andrew’s Wedding Day

May 17, 2022

Natalie and Andrew’s gorgeous wedding day took place at local favorite, Belle’s Pleasure, situated in the heart of Spotsylvania, Virginia. The wedding day was planned and coordinated by Madi Leigh Events and photographed by Ariel Moriah Photography. The videographers capturing the day were none other than Paperboys Co. So many incredible vendors came together to create a truly one-of-a-kind and stunning wedding.

The lavender and dusty blue hues carefully placed throughout aspects of the day helped to bring out the French/European countryside theme of the wedding day. The save the dates were ordered from Zola and the official invitations were designed by the couple in Canva. The awe-inspiring florals were designed by Blushing Blooms Event Florist.

The bride’s dress was purchased from the renowned bridal boutique, Ava Laurenne. Bridesmaid’s dresses were ordered from Azazie. The bride’s makeup was done by the uber-talented Tiffany Winterton and hair was done by Maleah Nassiri.

With a crazy-good vendor team, the getting ready portion of the day was a breeze!

It was a rainy Saturday. Once we caught a break from the rain, we hurried to the first look with dad. The first look left tears in our eyes! SO SWEET!

After her first look with her father, Natalie and Andrew headed to their first look. They chose the beautiful dock overlooking the venue’s private, tree-lined pond.

Talk about a drop-dead gorgeous wedding party! I’m obsessed with the pairing of the bridesmaid dresses and the groomswomen jumpsuits!

The ceremony took place in the main barn on the property. Mismatched chairs, gorgeous calligraphy, and the luxurious florals made the ceremony so special!

First Kiss GOALS!

Natalie and Andrew braved the elements for truly magical bride and groom portraits! The rain could not stop these two!

After taking some amazing portraits, it was time for the reception! Jovel Ford with Hefbeats brought the party! The reception featured gorgeous tablescapes, a vintage phone to leave messages for the happy couple, and so much more! Dinner was delicious and catered by local favorite, Clearwater Fire-Grill!

Announcing the newlyweds!

The father-daughter dance captivated everyone with a genre-hopping, high energy performance by the bride and her dad! LOVED the inflatable air guitar and microphone!

The groom and mother dance was so sweet and brought tears to our eyes!

The wedding cake was made by Blue Wife Baker. It was as delicious as it was beautiful! The cake topped was handmade by the groom’s sister and featured the bride and groom’s pet cat! Speaking of cat, they paid homage to their furbaby with their custom cocktail and wooden stirs served by the amazing Anker Mobile Bar Co.!

Two of my personal favorite aspects of Natalie and Andrew’s big day were the Auntie Anne’s pretzel board and the Captain Cookie ice cream truck!

With such joy in the room, amazing drinks and desserts, the real party started!

After a magical evening, it was time for the newlywed’s send off! The rain and bubbles made these photos some of my favorites!
