Brittany & Jason- Early Mountain Vineyard Summer Wedding

Brittany and Jason had an absolutely beautiful August wedding day at Early Mountain Vineyards, near Charlottesville, Virginia! Early Mountain is one of my absolute favorite wedding venues in the Charlottesville area- in the summertime, the outdoor ceremony space is full of white blooming hydrangea bushes, and the neutral indoor space always looks so beautiful accented with natural greenery and an abundance of candlelight. Brittany and Jason envisioned a vibrant, fall-inspired wedding color palette, with shades of burgundy, golden bronze and burnt apricot, paired with greenery, including eucalyptus and my summer favorite- hops!! To bring their vision to life, we used lots of garden roses, ranunculus, dahlias, deep red anemones, and more- it was so much fun to work with color!!

Stephanie & Tom- Inn at Westwood Farm Charlottesville Wedding!

Stephanie and Tom had a sunshine-filled, joyous wedding day at a new venue to me- the Inn at Westwood Farm, near Charlottesville. It was the most charming bed and breakfast, nestled in the rolling hills of Virginia, and the property was absolutely lovely- perfect for an intimate outdoor wedding! The very first time I talked to Stephanie, she described her wedding as being southern-inspired, with a peach, light blue and white color palette, and I just loved working with her to bring her vision to life! Stephanie's bouquet was full of the best springtime blooms, including garden roses, lilac, ranunculus, tweedia and more, paired with greenery, and it was the perfect compliment to her beautiful wedding day look! The ceremony focal point was our classic wooden arbor, with a natural floral arrangement on the top and cascading down to both sides, and it was filled with coordinating blooms, including delphinium and garden roses, with natural greenery like blackberry and honeysuckle vine, and more! The reception area was outside, with lovely industrial-style exposed farm tables, string lights and wooden planter boxes filled with blooms for an intimate and natural feel. Their wedding day was photographed by Corrin Jasinski Photography who did such a wonderful job, and scroll to the end of this post for a list of all the vendors who brought Stephanie and Tom's wedding day to life- and enjoy! :)
