It was Maggie’s blush pink wedding dress that first caught my eye in this adorable real Virginia wedding. Then it was all the amazing handmade details, the breathtaking lakeside venue, and of course, all the intimate details. I know you guys are going to love this one – though it’s intimate, the couple didn’t skimp on details and the result is just lovely. Happy Tuesday Romancers!

From the photographer:
Maggie & Shahul had an intimate backyard wedding with 17 guests & the most beautiful details. For privacy reasons we can’t share the ceremony photos but even without them you can see that this wedding is perfect. Her attention to detail is really what took this simple ceremony & dinner to the next level. I was so honored to photograph this wedding. It really was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever witnessed.
From the bride on their wedding colors ~ a beautiful blush, black and gold palette:
We chose blush, black, and gold as our main wedding colors. Blush because I love it’s softness and thought it would go well in an outdoor setting and black and gold because we are die hard New Orleans Saints fans (also why I chose a table runner with a fleur de lis pattern) The secondary colors ended up being green and blue because we just love them and again thought they worked well outside.
^on that ADORABLE blush wedding dress:
This dress was exactly what I wanted. It was flowy and romantic and very affordable!

The venue was a private lakehouse
The first 1 1/2 years of our relationship was long distance so we would go to the lakehouse as our halfway point to spend time together. It was a no brainer for us to choose this very special place to tie the knot.
Flowers were faux, from Pier 1! Explains Maggie:
Pier 1 Faux Dalia Stems – no live flowers were harmed in the making of this wedding haha!
There were a LOAD of DIY projects in this wedding and their family was involved in every step – decorating, setup, and running errands.
- Tassels were made out of plastic tablecloths
- Vases were mason jars that were spray painted gold and then dipped in glitter
- “Sweets” letters were hand painted/glittered
- M&S letters were wrapped in twine and the ampersand was spray painted gold
- Favors were herbs that I potted (added hand written labels)
- Place cards were painted and hand written
- IKEA cupcake tier handles were spray painted gold
- Table runner was raw burlap fabric purchased from Michaels that I cut to size myself
- My sister turned a bracelet into a brooch which I used to embellish my dress
