Shannon & Jojo

Montalto at Monticello
Charlottesville, VA

A Lush Grandiose Mountaintop Celebration

Shannon and Jono’s romantic summer wedding brimmed with distinct American provincial style at the exquisite Montalto at Monticello. The mountaintop church-style ceremony under a custom cross arbor overlooked the city with expansive sprawling landscapes.
Just a Little Ditty curated pretty touches with plush antique lounge furniture in pastel blue and hand-plucked bountiful garden blossoms by Southern Blooms in soft summer hues at every turn.
Cocktail hour unfolded at the property’s historic manor followed by dinner in a sailcloth tent decked in lovely blooms of creams, soft pinks and blues. The tones highlighted the wedding party’s assorted floral patterns and shades of blue. Occasion Caterers knocked the cuisine out of the park with table service and fresh locally sourced ingredients. The couple’s favorite cocktail — divine espresso martinis — were topped with custom cookies cut out in the shape of the family dog. Dinner was served to the elegant classical stylings of Melodious Strings and Jen Fariello captured the loving theme in her fine art portrait style.
