Jamie Howard and David Meade were married on October 19 at The Virginian, a breath-takingly beautiful golf resort in Bristol, Virginia. The weather was perfect for an outdoor wedding, and the scenery was amazing.
This wonderful couple came into my life in February, and I have enjoyed getting to know them and seeing their wedding come together. Jamie has done all the planning for the wedding and has added great details. Her programs, which she designed herself, were a work of art. She had numerous hand-painted signs, and the table cards were displayed on a magnetic board with a gorgeous picture frame. There were references throughout the decorations of the couple's interests. The groom's cake was a surprise for David.
The cake she envisioned was a rustic looking icing, with only a couple of large fresh flowers.
I had the opportunity to do all the flowers, and am especially proud of the dahlias I used in the bouquets, on the cake, and placed throughout the entry way. I used some wild berries in the altar arrangements to give them an old world charm.
