English country garden wedding inspiration at Virginia House
In the dark days of January, the joy of an outdoor summer wedding feels like a distant dream so we we can't get enough of this English country garden wedding inspiration shoot at Virginia House in Richmond, VA. Lush abundant blooms in shades of fuchsia pink, buttery yellow and powder blue set the scene for a sumptuous celebration with the feel of a Dutch Masters painting.
Destination wedding photographer and Fine Art Curation member Alaina Ronquillo Photography tells us more about it: "Just like on your wedding day, rain is always a possibility. A misty, rainy afternoon at Virginia House made this editorial feel most authentic to the UK countryside and allowed us to showcase just how magical a little rain on a wedding day can be.
"Virginia House was completed in 1928 and is a small piece of history. The romantic old world structure served as the perfect backdrop to imitate the countryside of England — especially with the rain!
"We focused on a blend of colors and textures to celebrate the end of summer. Our Italian pink porcelain dinner plates by Maison De Carine sparked the inspiration for the aesthetic, with the unique color and elegant design setting the tone of this celebratory day."
