We’re excited to share some BTS shots and professional photos from our Goodies Frozen Custard and Treats photoshoot last November!

Per it’s website, Goodies Frozen Custard and Treats, located in Alexandria, takes you to a simpler place and time where passion, integrity, quality customer service were more than mere words. A time period, when Dick Clarks’ American Bandstand dominated TV; and Rock & Roll artists ruled the jukeboxes. Allow Goodies to take you down memory lane, indulging you with a social experience, while delighting your taste buds with their legendary frozen custard and treats.

Brandon, the owner of Goodies, has asked Honey & Lavender Events to spearhead outside events that can happen here (micro weddings, birthdays, baby showers), you name it!

For this photo shoot, we wanted to showcase what an outside-of-the-box micro wedding can look like at this venue. Come along!

The offerings for the all-inclusive micro wedding package include:

  • Venue – Ice House & Prosecco Van
    • includes two picnic tables, lawn games, and a dessert station of donuts, custard, and cookies
  • Food Truck of Choice
  • DJ
  • Event Planning Services
  • Photographer
  • Add-On Services
    • Rentals
    • Flowers/Decor
    • Officiant

With such a wonderful lineup of services, we had a ball partnering with an amazing team of vendors for this shoot (as well as for the actual booked micro wedding package)!

I mean who doesn’t want a dedicated Prosecco Van anytime?

If a Prosecco Van can’t entertain your guests, lawn games certainly can!

Honey & Lavender Events is thrilled to provide design and coordinating services for micro weddings at Goodies. For this photoshoot we wanted to create a colorful, fun, joyful, and laid back celebration. When people hear “laid back”, they immediately think decor and beauty go out the window, which isn’t true at all.

See how we designed and set the picnic tables? Thanks to rentals from Honeywood Rentals and an assortment of fresh flowers from Trader Joe’s, we’ve never seen a more festive table!

A more casual approach to catering a wedding, is to bring in a food truck or two. Thanks to years in the catering and food truck business, Brandon has tons of food truck connections and relationships and can easily get a food truck of choice to cater a wedding!

Peruvian Brothers quickly became a favorite amongst the vendor team! And how cool is it to take some photos with a food truck as a prop?!

Of course you can’t have a wedding without music and if our DJ made the photoshoot a party, there is no telling what will happen for a wedding!

We can’t forget about the ceremony of course. We suggest having a musician or two play during the ceremony and even during Prosecco Hour, before the party gets started. Celeste Vee is an incredible electric violinist who we highly reccommend.

If you ask nicely, she may even stay throughout your reception to play alongside your DJ!

Couples can forgo the traditionally wedding cake with delicious donuts from Goodies or have both to offer guests!

If you or anyone you know is looking for a nontraditional micro wedding, this is your venue and micro wedding package come true!
