We were so excited to celebrate the release of Charlottesville Wine & Country Weddings, Volume 2 at The Lodge at Mount Ida Farm & Vineyard. The Lodge, a spacious and elegantly restored barn, mixes the character and warmth of an aged setting with the sophisticated and polished look of a brand new venue—reflecting the stunning countryside settings Charlottesville offers brides and grooms on their wedding day.
Paisley & Jade staged the evening’s event with vintage chic furniture that perfectly complemented the look and feel of The Lodge. Adding more color and vibrancy to the space, Hedge Fine Blooms provided breathtaking floral arrangements that helped pull the fall scene together.
While guests talked and mingled around the venue, Rafael Scarfullery, a classical guitarist, carried the tone for the evening with his soft familiar melodies. The Catering Outfit served assorted savory Hors d’oeuvres throughout the evening, satisfying each guest’s palate with the light fare.
Favorite Cakes prepared an array of delectable desserts that included their famously delicious chocolate bourbon balls. Guests returned again and again for another one of these sweet treats.
Strolling through The Lodge and out onto the back deck, our local wedding professionals joined us for an event celebrating all our area has to offer brides and grooms, and their guests. The party was truly a celebration of the local talent that draws couples to choosing our unique area for their event.
All of the little details that go into a couple’s memorable and amazing wedding day—from photographers and event planners to rental companies, florists and more—can be seen in Charlottesville Wine & Country Weddings, Volume 2. It was a great pleasure having the opportunity to visit with everyone who came out to celebrate this new issue.
We are continually amazed by the plethora of talent in our wedding community and love being able to showcase so many wonderful vendors and professionals, whose talents are some of the top in the country. Let us toast to another great volume and to continued friendships in our many endeavors.
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.
