Set at the historic Blenheim Vineyards in Charlottesville, Va, this styled shoot showcases an intimate summer reception. It teems with vibrant colors, a picturesque location, and a gorgeous, quintessential Southern couple.
The 1846-era home on the property beams with vintage elegance. It’s this structure, along with others at Blenheim Vineyards, that inspire the invitation suite.
The florals are where the color palette really shines. The bride’s bouquet features pink peonies, peach roses, along with assorted yellow and white flowers.
The groom wears a khaki-colored suit with a pink tie that brings out the lively hues. The bride coordinates in a long-sleeved, fit-and-flare lace gown with a keyhole back.
They come together to admire the beautiful views of the vineyards and enjoy the lush landscape.
It’s here that they can gather with their small group of loved ones to celebrate. Three tables are placed on the lawn for the intimate ambiance they envision.
The head table features a centerpiece of bright florals similar to the bride’s bouquet.
Place settings include white china, clear stemware, and traditional silver flatware on a natural wooden table. Guests are also seated at linen-covered tables that feature centerpieces in wooden crates.
The dessert table is a heavenly display of delicious and elegant treats. Surrounded by macaroons, lemonade, and chocolates, the cake includes a brush of edible gold paint on each of its three tiers. It’s topped with a small cluster of pink peonies.
For out-of-town guests, a sturdy welcome bag includes local faire and a personalized tag.
This intimate summer gathering includes so many warm, inviting, and welcoming details. From the colorful flowers to the close-knit setting, this is a reception where everyone included will play a major role in shaping the memories of this summertime wedding.
