Some romantic, wine-inspired wedding inspiration today coming to you from a shoot put together by Bridal Bellhop! Bridal Bellhop is a DC-based wedding vendor search tool focused on simplifying the vendor search game for DC area wedding planning couples! Grace, the owner, assembled a team of talented vendors from her own site to plan a gorgeous styled wedding at The Winery at Bull Run. Using descriptors like “stark moodiness” and “quiet elegance” they use a Rembrandt painting and fine wine as the theme for the shoot. I am IN LOVE with the deep, rich berry and burgundy colors they used (right down to the bride’s burgundy lipstick – love). They topped it off with a touch of luxe by throwing in cascading flowers and gold too! As Grace explained, they wanted to showcase a winery wedding beyond the typical rustic burlap and lace – which I think they pulled off quite successfully!
We have an exclusive sampling of images from this gorgeous shoot but be on the lookout for the Spring 2014 Winery Weddings Magazine to have another set! Happy Friday Romancers – I think I might need to go fill a cup of some mulled wine after blogging this ….

Expert wedding vendor curators, Bridal Bellhop, sourced vendors for this styled shoot based on the vision of a romantic Rembrandt winery wedding and used their unique matching system to bring the vision to life. Each wedding vendor was carefully selected to ensure that the products and services captured in this styled shoot reflect Bridal Bellhop’s standard of excellence for selecting vendors to join their wedding maven community, which makes the company stand out from other wedding resource services.
The bride’s romantic Rembrandt look was achieved through a combination of dark berry lips and gold eye makeup, softened with loosely pinned curls. The high lace neckline of the wedding gown added a touch of romance to the overall look, while matte black nails, a cascading bouquet, and gold accessories added a sultry twist.
The cocktail hour display was rich in flavor, color, and edible details. Savory appetizers such as pomegranate bruschetta and red wine caramelized goat cheese tartlets were scattered across wine barrels and accessorized with heart shaped figs and a fruit basket-inspired floral arrangement. Gold foiled wedding invitations laid in a drawer of a beautifully worn hutch to display the ornate quatrefoil pattern and merlot color scheme.

Decadent desserts were displayed in the middle of the vineyard on a pink Victorian love seat. The bride and groom indulged in a sweet trio of gold macaroons, pomegranate panna cotta, and mini cupcakes. A naked chocolate wedding cake dripping in chocolate ganache surrounded by lush berries added to the tantalizing display of romantic opulence.
The farmhouse sweetheart table was styled with a luscious garland intertwined with deconstructed pomegranates and vibrant merlot blossoms. A collection of antique gold picture frames and a vintage crystal candelabra that was transformed into an exquisite floral vessel added a touch of drama to the tablescape. The pomegranate champagne sparkler and gold china completed the luxe and romantic vibe.
Wow. So hard to pick my favorite detail … I’m calling a three-way tie between the cascading flower bouquet, the burgundy lipstick on the bride, and the metallic, gold to purple faded escort cards. What’s yours?! A special thanks again to Bridal Bellhop and ALL the amazing vendors that made this styled shoot possible! Happy Friday Romancers.
