If you love the Virginia vineyards or at all are thinking about getting married at a vineyard in the DC area, then you must check out Ciara and Andrew’s wedding today! It is, in a word, gorgeous! They took every advantage of their natural surrounds for their wedding in Charlottesville and put it together with a very sophisticated color palette of black and white. Jennifer from egomedia photography was there to capture every step of their wedding day through the vineyards. So, even though it is Monday, grab a glass of wine, you’ll want one when you are done!
From Ciara and Andrew: Our vision was a modern vineyard wedding. We focused on the natural beauty of Afton Mountain Vineyards with very minimal ceremony decor. The black and white color palette is Ciara’s favorite, and the bouquet and reception greenery complimented the location. Our priorities were family, friends, good food, and a lot of fun. We skipped a bunch of wedding traditions we just didn’t care about, and it made our day more relaxed and personal.
The sky was threatening rain right before the wedding ceremony, but the dark clouds passed us by, and we had an incredible rainbow during our cocktail hour!
