Charlottesville, Virginia


Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We already loved Farmington, having visited over the years, but the Jefferson Room sealed the deal! It’s a gorgeous two-story room with amazing light, which is perfect for bridal portraits and the bouquet toss. 

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

Tall centerpieces from Pat’s Florals, heirloom lace veil from groom’s family, and amazing custom invitation suite from Fannon Fine Printing.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Have fun! If you throw a great party and you’re having fun, your guests will too!

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Driving off in the groom’s antique car to the reception. The groom’s brother (and best man!) worked hard to get the MG running and looking good before the big day. It was nice to have that time alone before heading into the craziness of the cocktail hour.
