This Charlottesville, Virginia wedding at Pippin Hill Farm and Vineyards was one of my favorite color palettes this year. I love how the warm hues of burnt terracotta and peach were softened by the dusty blue accents. I'm not sure whether matching the blue to the mountains on the horizon was intentional or not - but that seemed to work out perfectly. Local Virginia grown dahlias were the shining star of the botanical mix, accented by California garden roses and little bits of nandina and sea oats from my own very small and humble garden (I use the term "garden" loosely...)
Alex Meyer Events brought her simplistic touch to the details of the day - I love how she keeps things pared down and elegant taking a less is always more approach.
I am completely enamored by Live View Studios and their photographs. They nailed the color tones on these images and I'm grateful to be able to share them!
Weddings in Charlottesville means Paul and I get a date night - we usually stay the night after setting up since our studio is about 2.5 hours away. For this trip we had an exceptional dinner at Public Fish and Oyster. On the way out of town we had breakfast at Oakhurst Inn. I highly recommend both of these spots if you're in Charlottesville - creative, delicious, and great atmosphere and service.
In all, a beautiful weekend with a brilliant team for the kindest couple. Cheers Ariel and Emerson!
