Elsa & John

On a crisp November afternoon in the mountains just West of Charlottesville, a beautiful family joined. Elsa and John met as friends at first, but with much in common as busy business professionals. One of many things held in common was the love of their children and family - a central focus of their wedding.



John stood proud as their adorable children Abigail, Michael, Ben and Claire preceded Elsa who was escorted and given away by her son Jack. Jeff, a family friend, served as their officiant, making their experience even more personal and intimate.



The King Family Carriage House was classically decorated in midnight blue, ivory and vibrant autumn colors. Verde Natural Florals created exquisite décor alongside beautiful rentals from MS Events. Barbeque Exchange fashioned an immaculate Southern Fare meal complete with special treats to delight the kids.



The children were treated to a special table of treats, toys and games. As dinner concluded, Maid of Honor Lisa & Best Man Jeremy gave touching toasts to their newly married friends, followed by the bride Elsa and her Jack in the Mother/Son dance, and the groom John with his daughter Abigail in the Father/Daughter dance. T.D. Layman of Sound Enforcement kicked off the rest of the evening with all the right songs to keep everyone on the dance floor.

Thomas fixes broken hearts for a living and Bea solemnly swears to tell the truth…a match made in heaven. A beautiful day at James Monroe Highland celebrated their marriage with loving family and friends. Bea and her bridesmaids started their wedding weekend earlier in the week with winery tours, apple picking and girl fun. An early wedding morning with Anne of Charlottesville Makeup Artist and everyone was at their beautiful best.

The exquisite floral design by M. Henry Design sparkled in the autumn sunlight, but not more than Bea as her Dad escorted her down the garden aisle to give her away to Thomas, who glowed as she approached. Gay Lee Einstein performed a touching ceremony, and after a recessional of “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours” the celebration begins!

More sparkle as MS Events and C&O Catering, who served an impeccable menu, delightfully set the Highland Pavilion. Cakes by Rachel displayed a dessert table of special treats and a cutting cake for the bride and groom.

Another tender moment shared between Bea and her Dad Larry, the Father Daughter dance was “Unforgettable”. Then it was dance…dance…dance! Bea twirled and twirled in her gorgeous gown….more sparkle.

Garrett _ Taylor - Wedding 2018-00821.jpg


It’s not everyday you meet the perfect couple, so in tune and so in love. On a cool October afternoon, Taylor and Garrett stood hand in hand at The Haven Sanctuary in Charlottesville. Flanked by their friends, the bridesmaids looked amazing in pink, blush, and burgundy dresses, each different but perfectly complementary while the groomsmen sported handsome tuxedos.

Taylor’s dazzling smile lit up the room as she gazed up at the man she would soon marry. That smile was infectious as nobody could contain their joy when Taylor and Garrett sang along to How Great Thou Art. When these two look at each other, you know that they will live a long and happy life together. Special friends Samuel, Michael & Elly provided beautiful inspirational music for the ceremony.

Jeff Gleason made the day even more fun taking amazing photos, along with Stephen Stonestreet Videography. The reception was held at Keswick Vineyards and was indescribable with florals by M. Henry Design, and lighting and rentals provided by Skyline Tent Co. and MS Events.

Garrett’s kicked off the festivities with his toast to the “mom’s who put their blood, sweat, and tears in planning” (and don’t forget the Dad’s who put up with the moms).

Taylor’s Aunt Susan created the cake and cupcakes with all sorts of candy added to the display, bringing out the inner kid in everyone! After an amazing dinner by Le’Toile Catering and heartfelt speeches the guests spent the rest of the night dancing to the tunes of Sound Enforcement DJ T.D. Layman! An exciting sparkler exit wrapped up the night, making the perfect getaway for the bride and groom!

Tricia & Cody's Glamorous Autumn Wedding

Tricia & Cody November 3, 2017

From the candelabras in the ballroom to her exquisite Calla Blanche dress, Tricia and Cody blew all of their guests away with all of the special details. Tricia, being anything but the typical bride, knew from the beginning she wanted a dress that made a statement. The fact the bridal salon had said no other girl had tried this dress was the icing on the cake.

The lace cap sleeves, ivory/nude color combo, with a sheer illusion back and cathedral length train made it breathtaking. The dressmaker let Tricia tweak a few things to make it her own. "I wanted more of a mermaid shape, so we added a full crinoline skirt underneath the bottom of the dress to really make the bottom pop, show the beautiful lace detail, and give that hourglass shape."

So imagine for a moment, this vision against the Autumn Virginia mountains at Trump Winery on a warm November day.....you have a beaming bride. The ceremony was held at the exquisite chapel on Trump Winery grounds where her train delicately swept across the marble floor to her "soon to be" husband, Cody.

The guests were invited to Trump Grand Hall where they enjoyed cocktail hour on the patio overlooking a full view of color. They later entered the ballroom enhanced with intricate florals and candelabras on shimmering linens. Cody secretly prepared a skit with his groomsmen reenacting his love story with Tricia. Laughs echoed throughout the ballroom as the groomsmen pretended to be their dog, Tricia, and Cody. The night ended with dancing, a sparkler departure, love and laughter as everyone celebrated Tricia and Cody's first few hours together as man and wife... #TriciaCrackedTheCode!
