This Charlottesville, Virginia wedding at the start of summer is sweet as a peach, which is so appropriate once you peruse through Kathryn Ivy Photography’s shots and check out Megan and James’s color scheme and season-appropriate details. The soft peaks of the Blue Ridge range makes its proud appearance throughout this east coast elegant affair at Pharsalia. The blush and peach tones all throughout, the flowy sun dresses and loose bundles of blooms, and the sprawling grounds has us yearning for a permanent summer in the midst of the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Why a Mountain Wedding?
The mountains are home to us. We wouldn’t have wanted our wedding to be anywhere else!
What are three things you’re glad you did?
Incorporated our family. Only invited people that both James and I had personal stories with. GOT MARRIED!
What are 3 things you wished you hadn’t done or hadn’t worried about?
Gifts for one another – James didn’t even get mine until the next day. I would have started getting ready an hour earlier, so that I didn’t feel rushed leading up to the ceremony. I would have added one more hour to the reception, so that we could have danced even longer!
How did you find your vendors?
Instagram and suggestions from other vendors!
What’s your biggest piece of advice for other couples planning a mountain wedding?
Don’t stress about the weather. You’re going to be married at the end of the day regardless of what Mother Nature sends your way!
