Yin and Griffin’s October Charlottesville wedding took shape at the stylish urban Wool Factory. The prominent Charlottesville wedding venue’s clean lines and aesthetically pleasing exposed brick naturally complemented the couple’s creative contemporary vibe.
The autumn celebration was set in shades of rich rust and royal blue while floral designers from Good Earth Flowers & Events mixed classic and exotic blooms with natural leaf and berry elements. Hues of pink, ivory and tangerine carried across petite boutonnieres and onto the lawn ceremony where towering trees glinting with fall’s first dashes of gold and orange.
Beloved Charlottesville wedding designer Day by Fay ensured the bridal suite was stocked with rosè and the groomsmen with aged small batch whiskey. Planners seamlessly flowed guests from the evening ceremony to a traditional tea ceremony cocktail hour on the 19th century textile mill’s spacious courtyard. Guests sank into plush blue velvet outdoor lounge seating and took part in the tradition before moving inside the main event hall for dinner and dancing.
Amy and Jackson Smith — the talented Charlottesville wedding photographer duo comprising The Smiths Photography — captured raw, unfiltered emotion in a wooded first look and family portraits situated against urban brick backdrops.
The Wool Factory catering team designed an unforgettable menu of bacon and apple spinach salad, herb-roasted chicken, seared trout with farro and locally harvested vegetables followed by an artistically presented three-tier vanilla apple butter cake frosted in spiced orange buttercream and decked in dried oranges and luxurious fall florals.
