Fallon and Seth’s warmhearted October soiree at The Wool Factory embraced the property’s multi-level private spaces, clean-lined event hall and festive sprawling courtyard on the edge of downtown Charlottesville.
The sunny autumn day was shaped in classic black tie grace, simplistic beauty and understated industrial elegance. The bride’s modest modern wedding gown and pearled veil, black floor-length bridesmaids’ dresses and the groomsmen’s sleek black tuxedos defined the city-chic tone.
Charlottesville wedding planners from The Hive Wedding Collective welcomed guests with a wall of champagne flutes, setting a pristine reception space, lighting slender ivory candlesticks and arranging beautiful blooming fall centerpieces. MS Events set wood farm tables in crystal goblets, gold flatware and classic white linens.
Natural light poured into the full-windowed exposed brick ceremony space, festooned in suspended statement florals and tall white candles. Renowned Charlottesville wedding photographer Tom Daly captured real emotion and sweet pauses in time along with breathtaking golden hour newlywed photos tucked into the property’s lush foliage next to a trickling creek. Wedding party shots on a nearby forested bridge accentuated the city’s bursting autumn hues and Polaroids on tables allowed guests to snap in-the-moment candids.
Charlottesville wedding floral designers from Hedge Fine Blooms created petite romantic white and green bouquets with notes of gold and soft blush. As day turned to night, the courtyard’s draped bistro lighting against the crisp autumn evening sky made for a magical backdrop. Guests moved indoors to savor the Wool Factory catering team’s delicious regionally sourced menu and brews crafted by the onsite microbrewery. In-house executive pastry chef Rachel DeJong created a white textured two-tier wedding cake embellished with full luxurious blush and rust blooms.
