Charlottesville Wedding by Jen Fariello Photography
June 1, 2011

Where, oh where, to begin?  Not only did this next bride rock a fabulous vintage blue dress on the big day (Yes, blue!), she glammed it up at a Roaring Twenties style soiree that would make the Great Gatsby himself jealous.  All captured magnificently through the lens of Jen Fariello Photography, this wedding is, to borrow a phrase from the 1920's, the bee's knees.  And, lucky for us, there's even more Art Deco gorgeousness to be found in the gallery!

From the Bride... The design inspiration for our wedding was my engagement ring and dress, both from the 1920s, and the historic Southern setting of James Monroe's home at Ash Lawn-Highland. We wanted to extend the old world feel to our wedding invitations so we decided to work with a letterpress design studio in Brooklyn. By combining Art Deco typefaces with 18th century silhouettes, we were able to set the tone for our wedding day.

Our bouquets and table arrangements featured flowers that were popular in the 1920s - calla lilies, orchids, and dahlias. My dress was marine blue and we used that color for many elements in the wedding including the invitations, table settings, place cards, and hospitality booklets. For the food, we chose local southern fare -- wild trout, red velvet cupcakes, and mint juleps in a proper cup.
