Renee and Jared’s glowing Charlottesville wedding was awash in blossoming florals and brilliant bucolic springtime green. Acclaimed Charlottesville wedding venue and winemaking trailblazer Veritas Vineyard set the sunny April scene with a ceremony chuppah set against early season vines and rolling Blue Ridge mountain silhouettes.
Charlottesville wedding planner Mary Elizabeth Events orchestrated the day, enhancing guests’ experience with a tented brick patio cocktail hour, yard games and personal touches inviting guests to sign a book on Jerusalem and to leave the couple a heartfelt message in a bottle. Jewish wedding traditions unfolded amongst beaming family members as wedding photographers from 3 Cats Photography captured sweet shared laughs and champagne toasts along with touching mother-daughter bridal suite moments. Photographers played with the day’s natural lighting, producing luminous newlywed imagery among the vineyard’s lush landscaping.
Charlottesville wedding florists from Blue Ridge Floral Design elevated the blooming spring aesthetic with elegant statement florals that included tall reception arrangements hovering in luscious pink, ivory and natural seasonal greenery along with flowing centerpiece gatherings of rich, fragrant garden blooms. Guests’ formal floral attire and the bride’s delicate spaghetti strap dress with a sheer lace floral overlay echoed the soft springtime sentiments.
Caterers from onsite Veritas Vineyards and Winery Catering served a meal to remember beginning with rustic bread baskets. Dinner was served on farm tables set in modern gold, gauzy romantic white linens and sweeping drapery. The Saddleback Hall grand ballroom twinkled in fairytale romance with tall slender pastel candlesticks and gold-encased votive candles. Energy was high and celebration was the focus with the newlywed’s grand entrance and first dance before everyone rushed onto the dance floor to flood them with love and tradition.
