Sarah and Nathan’s intimate April wedding at bucolic Monte Ventoso welcomed Old World romance among the estate’s stoic statues, seasonal florals and meticulously landscaped grounds. Monte Ventoso’s in-house events director orchestrated the personal gathering of a dozen close friends and family members beginning with a sweet ceremony in front of the 17-acre property’s enchanting rose pergola.
Charlottesville wedding photographers with Kyla Jeanette Photography captured the bride’s long-sleeved designer gown and quiet getting ready moments in the luxury Italian-style villa as the bride reflected and savored solo time. Wrapped by early spring’s blooming trees and a blue sky painted in soft clouds, photographers stole the couple away for an amorous newlywed shoot on the estate’s lush green grounds, catching whimsical, breezy loving caresses and deep sunset kisses.
Charlottesville wedding floral designers from Drive By Flowers set a soft romantic spring palette with gentle blooms in shades of pink, white, yellow and orange. Personalized mint tins in wicker baskets sat next to vases of delicate baby’s breath, which also lined the ceremony aisle and reception spaces. Catering and a champagne tower by Get Plated DC and décor and wedding rentals by Select Event Group accentuated the Tuscan villa’s welcoming family vibe and gorgeous vintage style.
