Shelby and Scott’s Charlottesville wedding at The Clifton Inn was draped in delicate spring romance and modern regal elegance. Gentle April sprinkles and stunning white blooms mingled with a sophisticated powder blue, pristine ivory and immaculate gold palette. Charlottesville wedding planners with Social Graces Events curated a thoughtful celebration with a lush grand lawn ceremony — complete with cream and clear guest umbrellas — and a striking garden reception under the event tent’s sweeping peaks.
Charlottesville wedding photographer Sidney Leigh stopped time with her fine art imagery, capturing sun beams streaming in on the veiled bride, wedding party laughs and an emotional father-daughter first look. Wedding experts with Sophie Felts Floral Design created a captivating white and green aisle leading to the show-stopping full-bloom ceremony archway.
The couple added intimate special touches in a plein air landscape artist, a hand-rolled cigar bar and a personalized photo guestbook, along with monogrammed linens, place settings and décor. The Clifton Inn catering team delighted guests with regional wine and nods to refined local cuisine that included passed Virginia ham biscuits, an elaborate shrimp and oyster bar and a multi-course seated dinner. Charlottesville wedding décor by White Glove Rentals and Skyline Tent Company set an impeccable scene with delicate vintage blue tableware and welcoming monogrammed pillowed lounge seating. Guests settled in for dinner, dancing, toasts and a bubbly champagne tower backed by musical stylings from TAPE by Sam Hill Entertainment.
