Spring Charlottesville Winery Wedding


Matt and Adrienne had an absolutely stunning Charlottesville winery wedding at Thatch Winery in Virginia (See more from this venue in our 2020 wedding wrap-up). The pair had a stunning vision for a secret garden-inspired wedding, and Thatch was the perfect spot! Eight Tree Street Floral brought this dream to life with absolutely stunning floral pieces, complete with neutral and blush tones with tons of greenery for volume. Adrienne’s bridal bouquet was complete with lush flowers and cascading greenery.

Fortunately, all of these florals combined with the natural beauty of Virginia wine country created the perfect backdrop for portraits! The two had their first look in the garden, and took their newlywed portraits all around the property. They took photos with family and friends before it was time to get ready for the ceremony. Unfortunately, the sky decided to open up about 15 minutes before the scheduled start of the ceremony time. K from Just the Letter Events (who is an EXCELLENT planner and officiant, by the way!) totally pivoted to move all the ceremony chairs under the tent. Then, it was raining so hard that the tent flooded! We pivoted for the third time and set up for the ceremony inside the winery tasting room. Throughout this time, Matt and Adrienne’s guests were treated to cocktail hour early (special thanks to The Local Catering!!) and board games.

After a heartfelt ceremony, officiated by Matt’s sister, guests were ushered upstairs for dinner and drinks. No Charlottesville winery wedding could be complete without fantastic wine and great toasts! After toasts, the couple cut their cake from Caked Up Cville. Then, there was time for some night portraits outside and tons of dancing. Thought it was a wet one, we had a blast!
