Featured Wedding: Kiara and Lucas
October 22, 2022
How They Met
Kiara’s sister knew Lucas thought they would be a good match, so she facilitated an introduction in a group setting. They immediately hit it off and have been together since that night!
Lucas proposed in November. Kiara loves Christmas, so he and his best man decorated the pine trees in their backyard with Christmas lights while Kiara was away. When she came home he took her to the backyard to show her the trees and there was Christmas music playing, and he proposed there. It was very sweet because he and his best friend, who flew here from Boston, MA just for the proposal, vlogged the whole day and everything they did to prepare for the romantic proposal.
The Romantic Details
Kiara had so many well thought out boho details and the barn was the epitome of rustic romance. She kept the tables classic with white linens, glass hurricane enclosed candlesticks (with battery candles), greenery and clear and gold chargers.
On their head table she added colored goblets and had rust colored accents throughout the barn. She also had the cutest display of mini jars of honey for guest favors right next to her giant four tiered wedding cake!
Kiara wanted a romantic boho wedding and we think she executed it perfectly!
Getting Ready and Romantic Bridal Portraits
Kiara and her girls got ready in our bridal suite and then went into the white pavilion for her first look with her bridesmaids and portraits.
The guys channeled boho with their tan suits and Lucas's rust colored suit. The October fall foliage looked so great with their colored suits!
The Boho Outdoor Ceremony
Kiara and Lucas chose not to see each other prior to the ceremony and the pictures of Lucas watching Kiara walk down the aisle are so sweet and romantic.
Why They Chose Arlington Acres for their Wedding
“Arlington Acres was only the second venue that we looked at and we fell in love with it instantly. I love the hill walking up into the barn, it just has so much character in the simplest way and I just feel happy when I'm there.” ~ Kiara
Their Advice for Future Couples
“Enjoy the process! It's so much fun to plan, although stressful at times, your wedding is such an important day and it is a celebration of the love shared between two people that chose one another for life. It will also be a remembrance for generations that are here now and those to come. When you think back and look at photos from your wedding, you more than likely won't think about all the time and money you invested so try not to get too stressed about that part!” ~ Kiara
“This venue is absolutely beautiful! We didn’t need much decor because the venue just speaks for itself. I feel like it would work for all styles of weddings as well. After our wedding I was so sad realizing that I would probably never be back there, unless someone else had an event there but I fell in love with it from the first time we saw it. On top of how great the venue is, the owner is so nice and helpful! She had open houses throughout the year which was nice to get better ideas and bring family and friends in. She was there to assist if we needed anything on my wedding day, as well as rehearsal. We highly recommend this venue, you will love it!” ~ Kiara
