Among the many joys of creating Charlottesville Wine & Country Weddings, one of the greatest was seeing the submissions for our “Wedding of the Year.” We invite you to discover the love and beauty of the couple that won Wedding of the Year by purchasing a copy of the elegant art book and discover the elegance of weddings in Jefferson’s Virginia.
We loved pouring through the gorgeous submissions that showcased local, gifted artisans and stunning venues. The applicants took our breath away and made us fall in love with love (and Charlottesville) all over again. Couples like Augusta and Brandon Davis inspired us so much we wanted to share the romance with you!
Augusta Cole and Brandon Davis married along the hilltops of Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards in a fresh bed of rose petals. The service exuded intimacy and a lovely, relaxed elegance—family and loved ones gathered around the two for a ceremony in the round to share in the joy of the moment when they said, “I do.”
The couple embraced all the wonders that Charlottesville offers from the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains, which provided the backdrop of the wedding, to the local delicacies like the cake by Favorite Cakes. Nature’s simplistic, unadorned beauty perfectly captured in the cake (seen below) created a feel of summer freshness nestled amidst bouquets of untamed greenery and tender fruit.
Charlottesville Wine & Country Weddings is being welcomed at local boutiques across the region. Shop owners and readers have been so gracious and complimentary! Our idea for Charlottesville Wine & Country Weddings came out of our love and adoration of this place and the many talented artisans who call it home and we are delighted to share this love with you! Just as new romance can feel simultaneously exciting and a little bit scary, we found ourselves similarly engrossed with each and every little detail of our first issue of this amazing art book. We lingered over every photograph, perfected every word — but the time has come at last to send it out into the world. We invite you now to explore the passions and special talents of our wedding community, people who love love, here in Jefferson’s Virginia. We can’t thank you enough for your rave reviews!
There was no better way to enjoy the new Charlottesville Wine & Country Weddings book, than by celebrating its release with those who helped create this exquisite art book. The gathering took place at one of the books featured venues, Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards, on Wednesday evening, May 27.
The food, wine, music, views and guests made the event all the more special and mirrored the book in its entirety – elegance and beauty. Jefferson’s love for all things Virginia were shared the night of this event, highlighting the heart and culture of Charlottesville.
Look for it at local boutiques throughout the region, or order it online through our shop.
