Striking Autumn Radiance at Pippin Hill
Luminous sunset glow and true love set the spectacular scene for Billy and Scott’s October nuptials. Famed Charlottesville wedding venue Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards delivered polished perfection and high-touch luxury hospitality while planners with Donovan-Groves Events executed a worry-free wedding weekend.
A crisp autumnal ceremony draped in countryside reds and oranges was set against endless mountain silhouettes. The couple shared their vows under a custom arch graced in natural earth elements and golden, rust and ivory blooms courtesy of Charlottesville wedding floral designers at Steelcut Flower Co.
Black tie refinement and a gentle pink palette met an elegant reception space of pristine cream linens and burnt orange candlesticks alongside rustic autumn blossoms. Charlottesville wedding photographers from Cramer Photo caught brilliant crimson oak leaves singing in the late October sun, tears and deep laughs during family speeches and a beaming wedding party shoot among Pippin Hill’s vineyard rows, wildflower fields and rolling foothill canvas.
The esteemed Pippin Hill Catering team kept the estate-grown wine and epicurean hors d’oeuvres flowing, arranging a his and his signature cocktail toast around the tasting room’s bar crafted from a 400-year-old cypress tree. Guests delighted in a multi-course feast under the agrarian-inspired reception space’s vaulted ceilings, nibbling on an artful four-tier wedding cake and dancing well into the night.
