Nestled just outside our nation’s capital, the Goodstone Inn hosted a Christina Baxter Weddings & Events micro-wedding in June 2020 after shifting from original plans of 150 guests in March. The 265-acre property boasts accommodations with unparalleled views of rolling hills and palatial landscapes, creating a romantic setting for this private, destination celebration. Quaint details, rich tones and intimate moments framed the picturesque weekend in Northern Virginia for Lauren & Dan’s wedding weekend.
Elegance sets the tone for the guests from the moment they received their invitations. As the celebrated couple welcomes their guests, they share a monogrammed box filled with gratitude and local sundries.
The delicate petal detail from Lauren’s dress and veil carry the soft, romantic theme to their florals. Warm natural tones are complemented with pops of pink, flashes of yellow and light blue undertones seamlessly connecting the Inn’s color scape and their wedding cake for a truly classic summer affair.
Lauren & Dan’s ceremony was set up for approximately 12 guests plus musicians, photographer and videographer. Their family members encircle the couple while the officiant connected to the ceremony with Zoom creating the unique hybrid of classic country views and 21st century technology.
Their “all-in-one” location served as the ceremony site, the first dances’ space and the where they were showered with toasts.. The opportunity to dance in front of their beautiful arbor of flowers where they said “I do” and also hear their family attest to their love will always be a sweet and very unique memory.
The relaxed reception utilized the grounds and other spaces for a seasonal buffet, small beverage assortment, wedding cake and comfortable seating with a view of the Inn’s quintessential American elegance.
Lauren & Dan’s micro-wedding, while not their original plan, was an elegant and intimate celebration. Most importantly, they are officially married! When they can all gather with their original guest list, our team will help them do it all over again with a celebration and vow renewal.
