Rusty Rose and Gilded Fall Farm Vibes at Mount Fair Vineyard
Kelli and Colin’s October Charlottesville wedding gathered up the best of fall in the foothills, delighting guests with a warm, heartfelt bucolic scene at one of Albemarle County’s best-preserved historic farms. Mount Fair Vineyard’s state-of-the-art equestrian facilities, glass greenhouse and eight-acre family vineyard served as a natural romantic weekend retreat.
Charlottesville wedding floral designers from Steelcut Flower Co. created wildly beautiful arrangements and bouquets in natural ivory, terracotta and rich blush hues, accentuating the crisp autumn landscape. Towering earthy floral statement pieces yawned toward the sunny sky draping the outdoor ceremony lined by charmed countryside fencing.
Charlottesville wedding photographer Out of Twig Photography captured breathtaking bridal party images in front of the glass greenhouse, a tearful father-daughter first look, joyful family moments and newlywed kisses along tree-lined country paths. Planners from Events with Panache brought in adorable personal touches with a Polaroid photo guestbook and secret family recipe caramels.
A bluegrass duo ushered in a sunset cocktail hour and Valley Heirlooms arranged vintage outdoor lounge space for sipping and mingling on plush velvet furnishings. Dinner unfolded by dreamy candlelight under a grand tent as the sun set on wildflower meadows. Gibson Rental set a stunning simple vintage table in cream linens, sterling flatware and antique goblets.
Renowned Charlottesville wedding caterers from Harvest Moon Catering wowed guests with a sprawling charcuterie table of local cheeses and meats and elaborate dinner stations, offering tacos built with grilled chicken chili verde fire roasted vegetables, a Southern station of shrimp and grits and low and slow brisket and an authentic Middle Eastern mezze station of falafel, paella and spiced chicken skewers. A decadent dessert table of macaroons, cookies, donuts, mini pies and a single-tier wedding cake decorated in dried flowers capped the feast.
