If you are looking for a little warmth while enduring this chilly winter weather, you will love this bright and colorful July wedding! This wedding is filled with warmth, vibrant colors, and fun details inspired by a Kate Spade vacation tote. Situated in the heart of Virginia’s wine country, Monica and Sharod’s wedding began with an emotional wedding ceremony filled with love, religious traditions, and memories of loved ones lost.

The couple’s love of color was apparent throughout their wedding day. The bridesmaids wore gorgeous fuchsia chiffon dresses by Anne Taylor, and the groom and groomsmen looked dapper in grey tuxedos with colorful ties and fun cufflinks given to them by the groom. Each of the groomsmen wore cufflinks that matched each of their interests or lifestyles. The bride wore a stunning diamond white mermaid gown, and her wedding bouquet was a colorful selection of cream roses and radiant orchids.
The couple paid great attention to their wedding day details. The ceremony chairs were wrapped with fuchsia-colored chevron sashes embellished with orange roses. The couple’s wedding program was a fun magazine-style publication filled with details about the couple, their adorable son, and their wedding party.
When wedding guests arrived at the cocktail reception, they were greeted by silver sequin tables donned with fuchsia posies in mercury glass holders – The escort cards were multicolored polka dots (similar to the inside of a Kate Spade bag), and dinner reception was filled with colorful, classic details that will look amazing to viewers for years to come.
Congratulations to newlyweds Monica and Sharod! We wish you many more years of wedded bliss!
