Yasmin & Matt- Salamander Resort Wedding

Yasmin & Matt- Salamander Resort Wedding

Yasmin and Matt had a lovely August wedding day at the Salamander Resort, in Middleburg, Virginia! The Salamander is the most gorgeous venue, right in the middle of Virginia’s horse country, surrounded by gentle, rolling hills. Yasmin and Matt envisioned a neutral and classic wedding color palette, with shades of white and ivory, with greenery, and it accented the venue perfectly! To bring their vision to life, we used lots of garden roses, ranunculus, dahlias, lisianthus and more- everything smelled SO good!! We tied off the bouquets in our creamy Playa Blanca silk ribbon, and it was the perfect compliment to the BHDLN bridesmaid dresses, and Yasmin’s stunning wedding dress!! Their ceremony arch was filled with blooms and draped with fabric at the top, to mimic a chuppah, with the sofreh created by Yasmin’s mom in front, was one of my favorite parts of the day, and a special way to honor both of their heritages and families! Also, it was so fun seeing both Y & M’s adorable doggies dressed up in floral collars- so cute :) Their wedding day was photographed by Anna Kardos Photography, who did such a wonderful job, and we enjoyed working with the Blush Events team and the staff at the Salamander Resort! These two are just the sweetest couple, and it was such a joy and honor to be a part of their wedding day! Scroll to the end of this post for a list of all the vendors who brought Yasmin and Matt’s wedding day to life- and enjoy! :)
