Cat and Jesse’s August wedding was cloaked in casual, chic modern love. The couple embraced the romantic Veritas Vineyard setting, welcoming guests to a sun-drenched late summer afternoon ceremony where they stood just the two of them against the warm countryside backdrop. An acoustic guitar brought the couple down the manicured aisle, the groom in a stylish contemporary sand-hued suit sans tie and the bride floating in a form-fitting gown trailed by a jeweled fairytale veil.
Charlottesville wedding photographers from Sarah Marie Photography set the imagery in a vintage sepia tone, capturing loving first looks among the grapevines and tender, sensual moments as the couple looked into each other’s eyes, she cradling his face, him stealing kisses and both reveling in their genuine connection, dancing and dipping. Private pre-ceremony vows were tucked into Veritas sunlit forest, as the couple took time to share a cocktail overlooking the mountains and endless green landscape.
Charlottesville wedding floral designers with Wanton Poppies lined the ceremony aisle with yawning natural earth elements and white florals reaching for the blue sky. Romantic exotic orchids tangled with baby’s breath and generous lovely seasonal blooms in ivory and blush.
The reception unfolded on the graceful tented wood patio with a welcoming stone fireplace in a vintage meets timeless poetic aesthetic as gauzy table runners and soft white linens mixed with organic bronze florals and abundant candlelight. Veritas Vineyards and Winery Catering curated a menu to showcase the regional bounty and natural flavors in an apple-pecan salad, red snapper filet, herb-marinated chicken and a roasted garlic filet mignon. A late night gourmet snack menu included cookies and milk and an impressive cake, all served with elegant Veritas wines.
