Inspiration for the Gents


September 20, 2018 | Ivy Publications

Every man wants to feel like a million bucks on his wedding day, and there are many ways grooms can personalize their attire. For the modern groom, this can include different colors schemes, shirt patterns, vests, ties, suit styles, shoes and more. The list of accessories groom’s can choose from to make a fashion statement goes on and on. Scroll down for a few ideas we’ve loved recently!

(Below, left photo by Jen Fariello Photography; Top right by 3 Cats Photo; Bottom right by Anagram Photo)

  • Military Dress Uniform. The groom’s ranking, the time of year and formality of your celebration will determine which formal military uniform the groom should wear. Note: No boutonnieres should be worn with ceremonial military uniforms.
  • Embroidered Tie or Bow Tie. Consider embroidering a tie with the wedding date or another special detail to turn an accessory into a wedding keepsake.
  • Custom Cufflinks. These are a great way to showcase the groom’s Alma mater and heritage, and can be another way to commemorate the wedding day.

  • New Dancing Shoes. The groomsmen can coordinate with more than just their tuxes, suits and socks. Consider a leather lace-up or a chic derby shoe to finish the look.
  • A Special Time Piece. A watch always makes for a special gift to the groom on the day of his wedding and is a great accessory for any look.
  • College Ring. A wedding is the perfect place for a groom to wear and showcase his college ring to honor his Alma mater.

No matter how a groom chooses to highlight his personal style and interests—with his clothing or accessories—there are many ways he can incorporates a true sense of self on his special day. Find more ideas in Charlottesville Wine & Country Weddings.

How to Choose Your Ceremony Time


August 22, 2018 | Ivy Publications

There are many factors that go into planning a wedding day timeline. When you begin thinking about the schedule for your big day, one thing to consider is how long you have hired your photographer for and the lighting you want in your photos. Often, choosing your ceremony time first will help in laying out the rest of your timeline. We asked local photographer Amy Nicole to share some tips on how to choose the right time for your ceremony. Scroll on to learn the right questions to ask when planning!


When will the sun set on your wedding day?

First things first, look up what time the sun will set on your wedding day. That way, you know when all of the portraits will need to wrap up to get all the beautiful light! Once you know the time the sun sets, then you can work backward from there. The season in which your wedding will take place plays a huge part in this! Summer weddings have much more light available, whereas the sun sets much earlier in the fall (P.S. – the best light starts about 1.5–2 hours before sunset). Be sure to share your ideas with your photographer and get their input, too. They are the local experts and are likely familiar with your venue and its best opportunities for capturing images.

Will you have a first look?

Do you both want a first look or do you dream of the traditional “first look” down the aisle? If you choose to do a first look, you can get started earlier in the day, have more photos pre-ceremony and get to enjoy a bit more of your cocktail hour. However, a first look isn’t for everyone. If you dream of that epic moment walking down the aisle and it’s something that’s really important to you both, then don’t force a first look before the ceremony. You simply need to work in time after the ceremony for all those family portraits, full wedding party photos and of course, time for you two! Your photographer will be more than willing to help you figure out how much time you need so you can both create the photos you dream of.

Are your ceremony and reception venues the same?

Things are a bit more simple if you’re hosting the ceremony and reception at the same venue, as you don’t have to factor in transportation & travel time. If your ceremony and reception venues are different, you need to factor in travel time. If you aren’t doing a first look and your reception is at a different venue, make sure to consider how long it takes for photos along with sunset and travel. It seems like a lot to think about, but considering in advance will help make everything perfect. Of course, your planner can help you with all of this too.

How long will your ceremony be?

It may be hard to know this early on in the planning process, but be sure to talk with your officiant so you can plan for it in the timeline. Many ceremonies are about 30 minutes long, but some more traditional ceremonies (like Catholic ceremonies) can last closer to 1–1.5 hours. This, of course, will play into all of the questions above when picking your ceremony time.

Are you having a formal, semi-formal, or casual wedding?

Formal events typically occur later in the evening, so this is something else to think about when envisioning your dream wedding.

Will your ceremony be indoors or outdoors?

If outdoors, pay attention to the light on your ceremony spot. Is there even shade? Will there be even shade at certain points of the day? Depending on the setup of your ceremony, pay attention to whether you two will be facing the sun and/or if one of you would be blinded by the sun at certain points in the day. If indoors, try to plan around when the best light is falling into your church or venue. The more light, the better!


When you are thinking about these factors, keep in mind that your wedding vendors will always be willing to help answer questions you have about preparing for your wedding day. Everyone from your photographer and venue to your florist and planner can provide valuable insight into what you can expect for your special day. Be sure to also follow our blog for more wedding tips and insights from our talented local vendors!

Inspired Stationery


July 20, 2018 | Ivy Publications

Wedding stationery is an easy way to add a personal touch to your celebration. Save the dates and wedding invitations often help set the tone for the affair, as they offer guests a first glimpse at the wedding celebration to come. If you are looking for a little inspiration for your paper suite, these inspired ideas from real Charlottesville wine and country weddings show a variety of creative ways to accentuate your wedding’s aesthetic.


Typography-based.

From swirling calligraphy to clean, sans serif fonts, typography-based stationery lets your words do all the talking with eye-catching lettering. Mixing hand-drawn, elegant fonts with striking, simple typographies can accentuate the lovely words you choose to portray your love.

Dark and Moody.

We have been loving this trend and its incorporation of romantic, rich colors, from deep plums and reds to dark greens and blacks. The boldness of darker tones can easily be accentuated and balanced with metallic accents to make a brooding atmosphere chic and fun.

(Photo by CYork Photography; Stationery by I Can Do That Design)


Blue Ridge Inspired.

What better way to celebrate the beauty of love than by channeling the breathtaking air of the Blue Ride Mountains. Using the Blue Ridge as inspiration sets a majestic local tone, highlighting the charm of the mountains that so delightfully form the backdrop for our regional weddings.

Watercolor.

Watercolor designs offer a soft subtlety that can underscore the romantic atmosphere of the occasion. Whether you go bold with bright and intense hues or soften the palette with pastels, using watercolors for stationary is a dreamy and amorous way to celebrate your special day.

Geometric. 

Bold lines and symmetrical designs elicit both a contemporary and classic ambiance, with sleek, angular patterns. The simplicity of hexagons, diamonds, and other geometric elements is an easy and tasteful way to highlight your typography and make your layout pop with modern flair.
