Justine & Jason| A King Family Vineyard Winter Wedding in Charlottesville, Virginia
Journal_  Justine and Jason.png

Justine and I met when I was first starting out on my new business venture. She found me on the preferred vendor’s list at King Family Vineyard and after some digging and research loved what she saw! A few email exchanges and one lunch date later we were well on our way to wedding planning bliss.

From the beginning, she was sure of a few things when it came down to her wedding. One: she wanted to create a warm and magical “winter wonderland” feel for her guests. Two: she wanted deep, jewel toned colors. (Dark green and eggplant/burgundy were her top choices! )

During our design phase, we incorporated shades of color and texture through all areas of her wedding to help create the warmth she was after. (After all, it was February!)

We had her bridesmaids dress in shades of green and grey and wrapped them in dark green shawls to keep cozy while outside during photos. The guys had ties with accents of the same color to match!

For their ceremony, we brought in beautiful over-sized trees and hung lanterns among the branches. Their ceremony took place right as the sun was setting, so this in combination with a fireplace full of candles and floral decor was the perfect backdrop and glow.

From there, it was all hands on deck as we worked to flip their ceremony space into their reception!

Pro-tip: When choosing a venue that requires you to re-purpose one room for multiple events throughout the night, make sure you have a really strong vendor team. Often times there’s only one hour to transform one space into another.

It takes a lot back-end logistics for proper planning, lots of swift labor, and a fine eye to finesse each detail before guests re-enter!

For their tablescape, it was all about layering for me. As a planner, one thing you’ll come to realize about me is that I love layers, shades, and texture! These three things really bring depth and dimension to your design in a way that is simple yet really pleasing to the eye. So for Justine and Jason, I did just that!

I centered their place settings around a few of their favorite pieces and added small details to enhance them on the table. Small touch items like their bronze napkin rings matched the charger they fell in love with in my original design. The amber water goblets added a fun splash of color and popped off of their wedding parties suits and dresses. And finally, mixing their reception layout with tables both round and rectangular really brought a neat visual aesthetic to the room.

It’s small details that make the big picture!

Overall, this one was a home run. Not only did I love them as a couple, but I’m still doing a little Angelica happy dance over their details and design!

Justine and Jason— you all are gems! Thank you for bringing me along on the ride. xo

Tresa & James| A Knight's Gambit Vineyard Wedding in Charlottesville, Virginia
Journal_  Tresa and James.png

When you find your perfect match, you just know. James and Tresa's Knight's Gambit Vineyards wedding in the beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia was the perfect representation of who they are as individuals, and as a couple together.

Having first fallen in love over a long walk wrapped up in conversation about Lake Elkhorn, they knew their wedding had to involve a picturesque, outdoor view surrounded by their family and friends. Their venue delivered much, much more and was the ideal setting for their love story to continue!

If I've learned one thing from this couple, it's that true love shows no bounds. Through it all, James and Tresa have proven to be one another's rocks and I can confidently say I am so sure these two will only grow that bond stronger with the test of time.

Thank you for letting me be a part of such a glorious day!

Allie & Derek| Blissfully Blue Garden Wedding at The Market at Grelen
Journal_  Allie and Derek.png

More couples like Allie and Derek need to exist in this world. Immediately when we met, I was internally calmed (which is semi hard to do for my overactive planner brain)!

They were thoughtful and appreciative, opinionated but relaxed, funny and humble, and (above all else) they were thankful and grateful.

Planning a spring wedding at a gorgeous garden venue seems like a dream right? (Here's the part where I'm supposed to throw a 'but' in there...but I've got nothin')! It was a dream and these Molly Lichten photos are picture proof!

Thank you for allowing me to bring your big day together. Cheers to the rest of your lives!

Introducing Angelica & Co. Weddings

Get to know the girl behind the scenes, the company she dreamed, and how she plans to take the weddings world by storm!

It all started with a dream.

Hi! I'm Angelica Laws, Creative Director, Founder and Owner or Angelica & Co. Weddings. My weddings journey began by sheer accident. In fact, if you ask how I fell into the industry I'd tell you just that. Having been a Public Relations major and Fashion minor, the move was not intentional, but often the most beautiful of plans aren't. Much like love.

I take pride in small details and understand that in order to make something great you've got to put in the necessary work. Nothing in my life has come easily to me and neither has my success. I'm proud to say that the wedding and event education I've received has mostly all been outside of the classroom, which I believe to be the most effective.

Throughout the years I've taken a very hands on approach and have learned underneath some of the industries best to get me to where I am today. The knowledge I've gained, the guidance I've received, and the experiences I've had have all helped me help couples create their most precious of days.

With a full heart and a whole lot of love it is my absolutely pleasure to introduce you to my love child, Angelica & Co.
