Getting our inspiration on a little early this week with a beautifully styled fall wedding shoot from Jalapeno Photography & a ton of Northern Virginia wedding vendors [submitted via Two Bright Lights]! The team of vendors got together at Ekster Antiques – a dreamy barn venue in Virginia with French inspired, rustic & elegant treasure!

 Jalapeno Photography shares:

The backdrop for our shoot, Ekster Antiques, used to operate storefronts in the Northern Virginia and Maryland antiques’ districts, but Caroline Verschoor with Ekster Antiques got away from the restrictions of operating a shop on Main Street when she began selling her Frenchy-chic antiques quarterly out of her barns in Hamilton, VA.

Ekster Antiques’ barns are a dream location for any couple. The barns are a perfect mix of rustic, mercury glass-bling, and high style.
