Married to my first love, Momma of 2 (Mason and Weston). Dog mom to Tippon. North Carolina born but Virginia lover at heart. 

hi there!
I'm arli.

Lakeside at Welch Estate Powhatan, VA

June 29, 2020

Yesterday, although it was HOT… it was an absolute dream! I simply cannot get over how stunning this vision of Jami’s that we brought to life. So much so, that I had to release this post less than 24 hours later!

The color palette was so refreshing and had every wow factor you could possibly think of. The vendors who poured out so much love and talent over this shoot are incredible and I strongly believe that there isn’t a word that does them or their talents justice.

I adored getting to spend time with a few of them before the shoot started- it’s always nice when you can just sit down and have a free moment to talk and catch up.

It was also so wonderful how grateful we were to be back in wedding mode, we all missed it so much. This team was a dream and I am so thankful to have made new friends (which by the way are added to my preferred Vendors list! Like seriously AH-MAZING!).

The cake was beautiful and divine, I loved that when I got on-site, the cake and Camile were the talk of the kitchen (we even got samples which typically never happens!) and it truly was amazing.

As I was editing these and sending Jami some teasers I shared that these cake photos really pull my heartstrings for food photography. My stomach may also really enjoy that too.

The florals were out of this world you guys. The colors, the smell, the design. All. Of. It.

Hillary shared with me the types of flowers she selected and even told me where each of them came from! I LOVED the garden roses and dahlias (my favorites) but those little bunny tails you will see in the cake florals oh my heavens!

I love textures, this is not new news to anyone, and when I saw those little fluff balls I may have squealed and quickly asked what those gems were. I love any part of custom or unique in a design or detail!

All of the vendors on this team are remarkable and crazy talented so if you are still searching for perfect vendors make sure to check them out below!

Jami wanted to encourage all couples that are planning through this shoot that although we are all navigating this “new normal”, that doesn’t mean you still can’t have your fairy tale!

Whether you are sticking to your full guest list or maybe shifting to a more intimate setting, Jami and her team at Lakeside at Welch Estate are there to completely support you and protect you and your loved ones no matter what that dream looks like to you.

I also loved the field setup for the ceremony and/or cocktail hour! Every inch of this venue is stunning and I love it when I get to visit and share couples with them!

If anyone is curious, we are all for any of our couples who want to change up their day to include the field as an alternate option. I even told Jami that I wished someone would have their ceremony in the tree-lined drive! It’s no secret that I am infatuated with their tree and fence lined drive because it’s truly stunning.

Thank you a trillion times over to these amazing people who made yesterday flawless:
