Jennings and Matt’s April Charlottesville wedding at Veritas Vineyard tapped into a beautiful blend of city chic and countryside hospitality. The bride’s mod straight-lined dress and dazzling smile and the groom’s sharp deep blue suit shone against the venue’s rich green forested and rolling hillside backdrops.
Planners from Belles & Whistles arranged a stunning alfresco lawn ceremony shaded by grand oaks and showcasing panoramic vineyard views. A classic trio of violinists with a cellist welcomed guests. The wedding party joined the half-oval guest seating formation and the bride and groom stood together with their officiant, white petals and simplistic rustic spring florals at their feet.
Charlottesville wedding photographer Alex Tenser captured sunbeams shooting through branches, the proudest parent shots, adorable flower girls and tiny ring bearers, a father’s loving toast and dance floor graces spanning every generation. Charlottesville wedding catering by Oyster XO delivered fresh-shucked oysters on the half shell while guests sipped estate-grown wines and boogied to the ultra-funky Queen City Band.
Florists from Photosynthesis Floral Design built organic spring-inspired garden bouquets, sourcing local sustainable blooms that embodied the estate’s natural family farm feel. The Charlottesville wedding floral design team brought the greenhouse-style tented patio cocktail hour and reception to glorious life with fresh fragrant blooms while rentals and décor from Rent E-Quip, Paisley & Jade and BBJ Rentals elevated the artful design with plush lounge spaces and sweet country blue paisley linens.
