As we continue to receive 2016 Wedding of the Year applications, we’re reminiscing and admiring our 2015 applicants. William & Adair Barber sent us an inside look into their softly romantic June wedding.
Adair described the overarching feel behind the wedding, saying “From our first planning session, we wanted the wedding to be beautiful, elegant and simple. The whole wedding was full of joy and celebration, and was reflected in the cheerful decor! The soft pinks, bright greens and elegant decorations created a cohesive and classic ambiance.”
Every detail, down to the place cards, was planned with careful attention. Adair explained, “William proposed on the top of Carter Mountain Orchard at sunset, so we wanted to have a special way to celebrate that day.” Download your 2016 Wedding of the Year Application today!
As new submissions start to come in for Wedding of the Year, we reminisced on all of our stunning entries for 2015. One of our phenomenal applications was the wedding of Jim and Ann, photographed by the talented Melody Robbins. Pippin Hill was the perfect location for their dream wedding, as the couple wanted a relaxed and intimate venue in the Charlottesville area. The ceremony was held outside on a gorgeous afternoon over-looking the Blue Ridge Mountains. Afterwards, guests moved to a beautifully lit flower filled ballroom for the reception.
High school sweethearts who went their separate ways for college, the couple reunited later in life. Picking back up as if they had never lost a beat, theirs is a true love story. The wedding was attended by close family, friends and past classmates.
Jim and Ann chose to focus their ceremony around family and true love reunited. Following this theme, they included personal touches throughout the wedding, adding newspaper clippings from high school, along with yearbooks and other mementos from their early days as a couple.
