The Stables at the Virginian at Westlake
One of my favorite projects of 2019 is completed! A new barn venue was conceived and created in Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia by Jackie Baker and Mike Boyd, and we had the pleasure of working with them as they selected the interior and exterior lighting.
The Stables at the Virginian is a beautiful space... fun, classy, elegant and rustic all at the same time! The design is upscale stable, and it manifests the warmth and hospitality that one would expect in the perfect venue space. I can't imagine any better setting for a wedding.

The main space houses the Schonbrunn flanked by custom chandeliers - Baltimores that we made to be 32" wide instead of 30" wide. The radiant crystal looks magnificent against the gorgeous wood of the ceiling and banisters.
A variation of our Wentworth chandelier hangs in threes here in the Bride's Room. They accompany 2 sconces. Jackie custom designed these chandeliers in order to get just the right amount of sparkle. This ambiance will make all bride's feel beautiful!
We worked with Jackie on the rest of the interior lighting, as well as the exterior lighting and fans, to achieve that perfect balance of rustic and sophistication.
Jackie and Mike know the importance of lighting - both practically and aesthetically. Each fixture (over 75 of them) was carefully selected to blend the elegant and rustic aspects of the decor.
It is gorgeous, and we are so proud to be part of this project. Congratulations to Jackie and Mike.
