I don’t know what it is but the second the calendar tells me Spring is officially sprung, I’m all (and I mean all) about the florals. The same goes for weddings too. This Charlottesville beauty falls right into that “Three Cheers for Spring” category. With ribbons and classic details crafted by Donovan-Groves Events, those blooms I can’t stop blabbing about by Whimsical Floral Design, this is just the celebration to get you in the mood. Pore through the prettiest of images by Josh & Serena with even more here.

From the Photographer…Rachel and Marc’s ceremony and reception both took place at Keswick Hall under the impeccable direction of their planner, Adam of Donovan-Groves Events. It was an honor to document the love between these two and to capture the love felt for them by their family and friends!

It’s no surprise that this beautiful duo pulled off one of the prettiest fetes I’ve seen all week… they happened to meet at a wedding! Once you begin to peruse the images from Nikki Santerre, I think you’ll agree. And while you might be dying to know what venue they landed—you’ll come to find that their Big Day backdrop is the Groom’s parents’ estate. Ridiculously gorgeous, right? See it all in motion with the film from Heart Stone Films below!

From Nikki Santerre… No detail was without intention on Jessica & Stephen’s wedding day. Having planned her Virginia wedding on Stephen’s parent’s estate from their home on the West Coast, Taylor of Alyson Taylor Events perfectly executed Jessica’s vision for a “West Coast style” meets “East Coast tradition” event. A memorial table for Jessica’s late father, beautiful bar display including His and Hers signature cocktails, a mix of both modern and classic chandeliers, and lovely lounge furniture all made the tent come alive with elegance and joy. The couple also met at a wedding, and chose their reception band because they were playing at the event where they met. The emotion of Jessica and Stephen’s First Look, caught on film, was truly one of the highlights of the day as well.
