Alicia and Aaron were married at Murray Hill Events in Leesburg, Va. on September 7. “It had everything we were looking for,” Alicia said. “Murray Hill is a gorgeous estate that overlooks the Potomac River, and it felt like it was in the middle of nowhere but still very close to civilization.” The bride wore a sweetheart lace a-line wedding gown, accessorized with a pearl necklace and fingertip-length veil, while the groom wore a dark gray suit, accessorized with a pink tie. “The pink tie started out as a joke, but when we became increasingly frustrated that we couldn’t find champagne ties that we liked, it became less of a joke and more of an option,” she said. Bridesmaids wore navy blue chiffon dresses and carried bouquets of roses, eucalyptuses, and lavender. Following the nuptials, guests were directed to the barn where they found their seats on a vintage window panel. “The drapes and lighting used to the ceiling was the one thing that my mom insisted on,” Alicia said. “And she was right, it looked stunning.” There was even a popcorn bar! The newlyweds’ favorite moment though? “When Aaron and I danced the last dance together,” she said. “It was ‘Harvest Moon’ by Neil Young that we played because his father really wanted to hear that at our wedding.”
