The Museum of Contemporary Art in Virginia Beach served as the perfect venue for Aphten and Lester’s wedding affair. Aphten looked glamorous in her strapless mermaid gown, side swept hair, and sparkly jewelry. In fact, she was a picture perfect bride walking down the aisle, as shown in the featured pictures below! The couple’s wedding colors centered around deep blues and purples, and peacock feathers were incorporated into their decor. This video taken by Nuvoria helps to illustrate this beautiful wedding for our beautiful charming couple.
Their ceremony decor was simplistic with a splash of bling which was great for the space. The Museum has trees incorporated into their indoor room covered in lights, which makes for an already dramatic look. However, the white seats had dark blue sashes, which added a pop of color, and candles in decorative candleholders lined the aisle leading to the officiant. After the ceremony was finished and everyone moved into cocktail hour, Pinch of Charm worked with the catering staff to transform the same room into the perfect reception area.
Mimicking the design of the chairs, each table linen was white with deep blue napkins. The centerpieces were tall glass vases with white calla lilies. Each guest was given a cake pop as a favor, and they were each decorated differently with icing and sprinkles according to peacock color scheme, which was another fun touch for the guests.
The cake for this wedding was absolutely stunning! It was white with three layers and the sections between each layer were bedazzled. It also incorporated flowers with the couple’s wedding colors so it matched perfectly with the reception decor. The height and sparkle of the cake looked great in the venue as it got darker outside and the lights on the trees really started to shine.
After a night of dancing and mingling among guests, Aphten and Lester ended their wedding night with a sparkler exit. From the lit up trees in the Museum reception area, to the tall, sparkly cake, this wedding had plenty of visually dramatic aspects that made the reception unforgettable. This, on top of a sincere and heartfelt ceremony, was the perfect representation of Aphten and Lester’s love story.
