Rachel & Mike- Early Mountain Vineyard Fall Wedding



Rachel and Mike had such a perfect wedding day at one of my absolute favorite wedding venues, Early Mountain Vineyard, in Charlottesville. The very first time I talked to Rachel and Mike was over a Skype call, and I just immediately loved both of them and how down to earth and sweet they are! I knew that we would have so much fun working together throughout the design process. I’m so happy that I was able to design their wedding flowers, and that we became friends!! Rachel and I were able to grab coffee together several times as she was passing through Richmond, and each time we hung out together, I loved learning more about her and Mike, their families, and all the wedding plans coming together!! 🙂 Early Mountain is so beautiful in the fall, and Rachel and Mike had their ceremony outside and enjoyed the gorgeous Charlottesville mountain views as a backdrop to many of their lovely portraits!! Rachel envisioned white and green flowers, with pops of burgundy, and dusty blue, her accent color. The bridesmaids wore that beautiful dusty blue shade, which was such a striking contrast to their white and burgundy bouquets, and Rachel’s bouquet was full of some of my favorite blooms, including ranunculus, peonies, garden roses, anemones and more! The ceremony focal point was a natural birchwood chuppah, with whimsical greenery designed on it and traditional chuppah fabric draping.

The reception space at Early Mountain was absolutely perfect, with the two roaring fireplaces, lots of twinkling candlelight, and simple, yet elegant centerpieces of greenery and candles! The farm tables had hand-made seeded eucalyptus garland, with pops of gold candles and lanterns to complete the look! And, coming for a girl who also served donuts at her wedding, their beautiful donut wall was one of my favorite details, with lots of Duck Donuts (the BESTT) for their guests!! Their wedding day was photographed by Corrin Jasinski Photography who did such a wonderful job, and I also loved working alongside Becca B Events, who coordinated all the details perfectly! Check out the end of this post for a list of all the vendors who brought Rachel and Mike’s wedding day to life- and enjoy! 🙂
