Sara and Matt’s wedding, among the very first at Charlottesville’s newest (and gorgeous!) Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards, is now featured on our very own Charlottesville Wedding Blog! We’re excited to see their beautiful Summer wedding featured – it’s so fun getting to see it and relive it again. Thanks so much, Claire!

Remember when we shared with you some choice photos from this past Spring’s Orange Wedding Tour? Well, the good folks at United With Love have picked up on it, and featured the tour on their blog today, highlighting all of the area’s top venues. We were thrilled to be a part of it and appreciate being able to contribute to the feature. Go check it out.

Good morning everyone! We’re preparing a big post for you tomorrow to highlight Tori & Nick’s Keswick Hall wedding, but in the meantime, here’s a little blog love for Liz & Scott, courtesy of our dear friend Claire over at the Charlottesville Wedding Blog. Thanks so much, Claire!

We just received the nicest note from one of our bride’s moms, with whom we’ve kept in touch over the past year after their wedding. It touched us so much, and just wanted to share.

I was just looking at the bride who wore her Mom’s dress, it was gorgeous. We were away this weekend for a wedding, the couple and his parents were at [bride’s] wedding last summer and we were thinking of both of you at the wedding. We mentioned how we barely knew someone was photographing everything, you did such a great job.

We noticed this past weekend how the photographer was in the middle of everything, even walked down the center aisle of the church during the ceremony at an awkward time.  You both are so talented, so sweet and a pleasure to work with. I know we will cherish our photos and memories even more as the years go by.  I show them to everyone and everyone says they have never seen such gorgeous photos.  I can’t believe it is just about a year. Being in the islands with all the kids at a fun wedding reminded us all of the special day last July.  Thanks again for the beautiful photos and I love seeing the photos and weddings you are doing this season.

We can’t thank you enough for your note and for your timing! In the middle of wedding season, when it can be too easy to feel bogged down with all the non-wedding day tasks that fill our days, receiving a love note like this brings us such joy and reinvigorates our spirits as much as a Bermuda vacation. We’re reminded just how lucky we are that we get to be a part of family history and that our work can touch in ways we can’t even imagine. But we shouldn’t be surprised; we’re touched each and every weekend bearing witness to one of sweetest days in a couple’s lives and the mix of emotions flowing through their parents’ hearts as they watch them enter this new chapter in their lives. If we can capture even just one of those fleeting moments for posterity, we’ve done our job. Thank you for reminding us what’s really important.

We’re very lucky, here in Charlottesville, to have a quality publication created to assist those planning a wedding in the city or one of our many beautiful surrounding counties, in Wedding Planner magazine. This is the third issue, and we are thrilled to once again have one of our favorite summer weddings featured in its pages. Abbie and Jeremy, planned a fun and whimsical 4th of July celebration last year at the lovely and popular King Family Vineyard that featured sunny florals by Pat’s Floral Designs, farm-to-table cuisine from Harvest Moon, short & sweet dresses from J.Crew, some DIY fireworks graphics and Vineyard Vines ties for the gents – especially fitting, don’t you think? Pick up a copy if for nothing else than to read their wild proposal story. We’re pretty certain it’s sure to be optioned for the movies any day now. The issues are free for the taking at a variety of area hot spots, so there’s really no excuse.

Oh, and come back next week, as we celebrate Abbie & Jeremy’s first anniversary with them!

It turns out that in addition to being gorgeous, fun, loving people, our clients are multi-talented! As you’ve probably seen on newsstands (and from last Friday’s post), the latest and greatest issue of Washingtonian Bride and Groom has dropped. And as usual, it’s full of eye candy. So what other goodies can you expect to read inside? Why, how about a wonderfully-written, touching article on Liz’s wedding dress, which also happened to have been the same one her mother wore on her wedding day. This article is by itself worth the magazine’s price. Seriously.

Oh, and her bea-u-ti-ful bouquet and his dashing bout are by the immensely talented Shawn Cossette of Beehive Events!
