Recently we shared a few pictures from Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards, a brand new wedding venue just outside of Charlottesville, Va. Today, I am thrilled to share a lot more pictures from Sarah & Matt’s Wedding, who bravely chose to be one of the very first couples to be married at Pippin Hill (they booked right around the time that they had just broken ground).
You may recognize Sarah from the ever popular TV show, Say Yes To The Dress (if you haven’t seen it, check out Season 6 Episode 3 to see Sarah and her awesome entourage). After watching the episode, I knew right away that Sarah is a very creative person with a love for the details, and that her dress is very important to her! One of the things I love about Sarah & Matt’s wedding was all of the bright colors (from the bridesmaids dresses, to the bouquets and flowers, to her bright sparkly Kate Spade heels). Everything really popped against the beautiful scenery and rustic feel of the venue! The colors are also very representative of Sarah’s personality, which I am looking forward to showcasing more in Chapter 2!
Sarah & Matt have one of the most crazy wedding planning stories that I’ve known. From switching venues a few months into their planning, to being very sick a week before the wedding, they could have had their own reality show! I am happy to say that like with every great TV drama their wedding had a happy ending thanks to their wonderful family, friends, and hard work of all of their vendors! In particular I would like to say thanks to Easton Events who made sure every detail was perfect, including the timing of our pictures with sunset (which will be in Chapter 2), Floral Images who created amazing floral arrangements that helped create the picturesque atmosphere. Additionally all of the staff of Pippin Hill and Artisan Catering who made sure the food was delicious, and everything was well presented. Blue Ridge Light Forms did an amazing job lighting the reception, and Sam of Rick Haggard Entertainment did a great job keeping everyone on the dance floor!
Enjoy, and check back soon for more beautiful pictures from Sarah & Matt’s Wedding!
