Crimson strikes so many association chords—romance, autumn, the Victorian era, elegance. Incorporated into Megan and Ben’s wedding, this jaw-dropper of a color wove a bright, beautiful ribbon throughout their storybook day. And by storybook, we mean Walden by Henry David Thoreau.
Walden Hall, a lush Virginia venue aptly named after that notable memoir about Thoreau’s year living simply in nature, was the site for Megan and Ben’s celebration. Their wedding reflected the book and venue’s aesthetic—simple, breathtaking beauty—with a modern, super romantic twist. Also, look at their adorable Bernedoodle, Winston!
