Monika & Michael | Rose Hill Manor | Leesburg, Virginia

Monika and Michael were married on a beautiful September day at Rose Hill Manor in Leesburg, Virginia. Monika and Michael wanted an al fresco dinner under the stars and thankfully the weather gods shined down on us with clear blue skies all day. I had so much fun working with Monika on her fall wedding design.

Monika and Michael exchanged personal vows that even included "Friends" references (otherwise known as my favorite show!) and there was not a dry eye in sight. After the ceremony, guests headed outside for cocktail hour and were greeted by a beverage truck provided by Bubbles and Brews (such a cute addition to any event). The truck was filled with Port City beer and Lost Boy Cider to play homage to the couples love for Alexandria breweries and cideries.

I truly feel as though I have gained two new friends during the planning of this wedding and I can't wait to meet up with them at a local brewery soon!

A huge thank you to our vendor dream team!
