Katie & Reid’s December Charlottesville wedding shone in metropolitan elegance. The Bradbury’s glinting downtown venue delivered a sense of polished style and historic Charlottesville grandeur. Marble floors, massive gilded columns and soaring ceilings welcomed guests to the main Vault Virginia event space for dining and dancing beneath original glass-pane windows and sparkling chandeliers.
Charlottesville wedding planners from Little Acorn Events told the couple’s special love story through personal details and intimate moments. Designers curated a unique alter using the couple’s golden monogram and geometric vase lighting next to natural florals in antique white vases. A nod to winter in Charlottesville, floral designers from Hedge Fine Blooms called on sophisticated blooms in chic shades of rust and ivory, enhancing the staircase entryway in vibrant climbing greenery.
Classic clean lines, cream linens, bronze seating and lots of warm candlelight softened the cool December day alongside festive party prop Santa hats and beards and napkins stamped with a message from the couple’s dog.
Charlottesville wedding photographer Jill Meriwether caught supple black tie details in the bride’s fur stole and beaded button gown detail. Her lens captured joyful speeches and shared laughs, stairwell kisses and a playful city photo shoot. Charlottesville catering experts from Harvest Moon executed precise hospitality and grace across the jovial mezzanine cocktail hour and stately private dining reception event.
