I just loved the colors & the unique navy bridesmaids dresses in this real Virginia wedding that took place at the lovely River Farm venue. Jessica & Myung kept it casual for their wedding with lots of DIY projects (including the Bride learning how to do calligraphy herself, a year from the wedding!). Their navy & bright orange color palette is a perfect color choice for summer weddings too! Check it all out.

We met in 2011 in Charlottesville, Virginia while both attending the University of Virginia – I was in nursing school and Myung was in medical school and we met at a nursing-medical school mixer. Our relationship continued over the next 3 years while I was living and working in Baltimore and moved back to Charlottesville after we got engaged.

I really loved eating dinner together and going around talking to everyone. It was fun to see all of our friends and families mingling together and to catch up with everyone. We are also so grateful to have had all of our parents present, and both of my grandmothers present.

We DIY’ed most everything. I was determined to have calligraphy throughout our wedding but our budget didn’t allow for it, so I started learning it about a year out from our wedding date and was able to calligraphy many of our wedding details including our save the dates, invitations + envelopes, and escort cards.

Myung handmade the origami paper cranes we used with our escort cards and did all of the computer work needed for our save the dates, invitations, programs etc.

We worked together on most of our DIY projects which made them all even more personal and special to us!

  1. This wedding is absolutely lovely! Could you share where the bridesmaids dresses are from, please? I’m a Maid of Honor and been trying to help the bride find unique, fun dresses. These navy blue ones fit the bill!
