Rustic Coastal Glam at the Water Table

Samantha and Cody‘s late summer chic, rustic, coastal glam inspired wedding at the Water Table is just another reason why we love the untraditional takes on rustic feels for coastal Virginia weddings. Virginia Beach industry heavy hitters crafted the dreamiest wedding design all planned to perfection by a DIY loving bride and Dètaillè Events. We think the expert details speak for themselves. With chic dusty blue and lavender accents, an abundance of greenery, wooded natural elements and pops of mixed metals our heart still sings when glancing at these timeless images captured by the ever so talented Cynthia Tenney!

From Tiffany Turner of Dètaillè Events – I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Samantha and Cody a long time! I knew their wedding would not only be one for the books visually but one for the ages as the celebration of their love unfolded with their guests the day of. Samantha is a true event-a-holic at heart and her style is on point! The details of the day were of the utmost importance to her and she wasn’t afraid to roll up her sleeves and bang out some beautiful custom DIY accents that added to the magic!

When we jumped on board to assist in planning, Samantha and Cody knew exactly what they wanted! The Water Table was the perfect backdrop for their ceremony and had all the vignettes to seamlessly host every aspect of the wedding day experience!
Being the daughter of the General Manager for one of the most established catering companies in the area, Samantha was no stranger to the notion “the details make the difference!”. Samantha envisioned a rustic coastal glam vibe from the details of the acoustic prelude music to dreamy driftwood arch from Distinctive Event Rentals adorned with greenery and all set perfectly atop the wooded waterfront deck with the Rudee inlet  as the backdrop.
This Pick Me – Choose Me – Love Me DIY sign was the perfect addition to an already stunning ceremony setup!

Planning outdoor ceremonies in Virginia, no matter the season, always a bit of a risk, as it can be sunny one second and pouring the next! For a second the late summer thunder rolled and we thought we would have to enact plan B! However, nature was good to us and turned out the sunshine for an unforgettable ceremony which brought tears to everyone’s eyes carried out by the amazing Ken Lane.

We love when a bride with beautiful style places a focus on aesthetics and the guest experience as a whole, Samantha did just that and more! Some of our favorite details included: Gorgeous mixed textile and color bridesmaid gowns! Endless amounts of delectable cocktail style bites from Gourmet Gang, table settings that included hand tied napkins atop glass beaded chargers and marbles linens that give us every bit of starry eyes for Classy Event Rentals. A Bourbon Bar with gold rimmed vintage rocks glasses for guests to keep and custom built pallet bars! Everywhere you looked were thoughtful details and meaningful elements that kept the guests in mind!

After the main events of the reception and cocktail style dinner which served up the yummiest collection of bites for guests, it was time to PAR-TAY! The celebration session started off with a margarita toast – umm yes please! A naked cake cutting, followed by endless dancing, a mini dessert display that would bring out the inner sweet lover in us all, bourbon bar and yep late night delivered pizza! Roger Cruz of Astro Entertainment kept the dance floor packed while Photobooth from SnapQube kept guest loving every second of the party that could have gone until the wee hours of the morning!

The night ended with sparkler send off followed by the best bubble and boat farewell we have ever orchestrated! Can’t get enough of these dreamy images of this couple? Check out their per-wedding shoot with their fur babies here!
