Elizabeth and Eric in Leesburg, VA

Chris Baltazar

Alexandra, Virginia couple Elizabeth and Eric hosted a "picnic chic" wedding at the Thomas Birkby House. Table centerpieces of pink carnations placed in cylindrical glass vases wrapped with pastel yellow fabric and a brighter yellow satin ribbon created a pop of color under the white tent. Pomanders, which were also used as the decoration for the ceremony, surrounded a tower of pink frosted cupcakes. Instead of a traditional "wedding" DJ, the couple hired DJ D-Mac who played a mix of early '90s hip-hop and '80s and '90s dance music.
