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!!

Maegan & Andrew- Early Mountain Vineyard March Wedding!

Maegan and Andrew enjoyed a lovely wedding day, at one of the most beautiful wedding venues ever, Early Mountain Vineyard, in Charlottesville. Their early March wedding was filled with cozy, romantic details, as a perfect way to close out the winter season, and Early Mountain is such a beautiful spot for a winter wedding, with the two roaring fireplaces and twinkling candlelight. Their wedding ceremony and reception were inside, and the simple, yet elegant style of design, filled with neutral flowers and greenery, that Maegan was drawn to, was an absolutely beautiful compliment to the space! Centerpieces were low arrangements filled with lots of textured white flowers and greenery, and the head table was designed with a eucalyptus greenery garland lining the middle, with pops of blooms throughout!

Rachel & Mike- Early Mountain Vineyard Fall Wedding

Rachel and Mike had the perfect wedding day at one of my absolute favorite wedding venues, Early Mountain Vineyard, in Charlottesville. The very first time I talked to Rachel and Mike was over a Skype call, and I just immediately loved both of them and how down to earth and fun they both were! Throughout the planning process, I was able to meet Rachel's sister and mom too, and we even got to meet up for coffee just to catch up!! I'm so happy that I was able to design their wedding flowers, and that we became frinds!! Early Mountain so beautiful in the fall, and Rachel and Mike had their ceremony outside and had the gorgeous Charlottesville mountain views as a backdrop to many of their lovely portraits!! Rachel envisioned white and green flowers, with pops of burgundy, and dusty blue, her accent color! The bridesmaids wore that beautiful dusty blue shade, which was such a lovely contrast to their white and burgundy bouquets, and Rachel's bouquet was full of some of my favorite blooms, including ranunculus, peonies, garden roses, anemones and more! The ceremony focal point was a natural birchwood chuppah, with whimsical greenery designed on it and lovely fabric draping.

Taylor & Tyler- Mount Ida Farm Charlottesville Fall Wedding

Taylor and Tyler had an absolutely beautiful wedding at the Lodge at Mount Ida in Charlottesville, Virginia, one of new my favorite wedding venues!! The weather in early September on their wedding day was absolutely perfect, with sunshine, a light breeze and gorgeous mountain views! Taylor envisioned neutral, organic floral designs, with greenery garlands draped down the long tables at Mount Ida, and we used eucalyptus with anemones, garden roses, ranunculus and dahlias in the bouquets and centerpieces to make her vision come to life. I love how the bouquets looked up against the beautiful blush bridesmaid dresses, and the gorgeous gold accents (even gold flatware!!) paired SO well with a champagne linen for the round tables!  The reception space at Mount Ida was absolutely perfect, filled with ethereal, neutral details, and even some fun pops of acylic, for the table numbers and escort cards! Their wedding day was photographed by Birds of a Feather Photography, who did such a wonderful job, and I also loved working alongside Hitched by Heather, who planned their entire wedding day!! Check out the end of this post for a list of all the vendors who brought Taylor and Tyler's wedding day to life- and enjoy! :)
