Trending in Weddings: Metallic Accents

| , , , , , , , , | 1 Comment

A trend that is on the rise, and has been for quite a while, is the use of metallic accents in both minor and major details throughout the wedding.  From décor to personal accessories, metallics have been present at several weddings at the Lesner Inn over the past few months.

One of our favorite weddings was in May of 2015, where Kimberly & James were the first couple to take part in the metallic trend here at the Lesner Inn!  Their décor featured gold sequined table linens from Classy Event Rentals in our Lesner Hall, paired with florals in white and shades of pink.  This bride was ahead of the curve with this trend, and set the bar high for Lesner Hall events!  Thank you Amanda Hedgepeth Photography for capturing this photo!

More recently, Sharise & Richard used a silver sequin linen at their sweetheart table for their winter wonderland wedding!  Check out this adorable photo of the couple from Bryan Myhr!

Angelique & Drew used these beautiful gold metallic chairs for their ceremony on our Sunset Deck!  These chairs are such a fun and simple way to bring a little something extra to your event space for much less than if you were to rent them through an outside vendor!  We will set them up for you in your chosen event space for $3 per chair!  These metallic gold chairs even look great in our Waterside Deck!  Thank you Dustin Lewis Photography!

Bridesmaids Dresses

Metallics don’t stop with décor though!  We saw beautiful metallic bridesmaids dresses at Brooke & Kris’ May 2015 wedding!  What a fun way to tie this trend into your wedding!  We wish we could have worn these trendy bridesmaids dresses for our friends’ weddings!

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a wedding !!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

    Girls at the Lesner Inn, Wow! I can’t believe it’s been just about a year since Jon and I came through the doors and knew that this would be the place we say “I do”. You guys are awesome and made planning a breeze even for this bride who didn’t have it all together. Thank you guys so much for everything, our day was perfect!
