Playful Autumn Dazzle at Early Mountain Vineyards
Missy and Whit’s September Charlottesville wedding overflowed with laughter, family and genuine joy. From the bride’s sparkling white sneakers to her Elvis-inspired bedazzled dancing jumpsuit, vibes were high and guests were grooving throughout the day and night.
Fun was top priority as the gorgeous fall day unfolded at Early Mountain Vineyards’ charmed countryside venue. Guests were taken care of and welcomed with cucumber mint water, Arnold Palmers and flutes of bubbly. Charlottesville wedding photographers Hunter and Sarah Photography captured the stunning lawn ceremony and natural pastoral energy, the couple’s shared looks and inside jokes, precious flower girls in twirling tulle dresses and a private vow reading among the property’s native grasses, limelight hydrangeas and awe-inspiring fall foliage.
Expert Charlottesville wedding florists from Blue Ridge Floral Design crafted a custom hexagonal arbor lined with pink and ivory florals and loads of greenery. The glowing grandiose event hall was decked in layers of fragrant florals and abundant candlelight surrounding the dramatic fireplace, radiating a golden aura as the Early Mountain Vineyards Catering team impressed with award-winning wines and a meal to remember. Guests savored panzanella salads, Frenched bone-in ribeye and roasted crab cakes followed by elaborate dessert table offerings by Albemarle Baking Company.
The Bachelor Boys Band kept the dance floor going strong and the bride pulled people onto the floor, pausing from the action only to give her husband quick kisses.
