Jill and Brian were married at Panorama Farms in Charlottesville, Va. last fall. “We were blessed with beautiful sunny skies, mild weather, and a gorgeous view of the Blue Ridge Mountains,” Jill said. “We had such a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends. It was truly the best day of our lives.”  The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a neutral pair of Lily Pulitzer peep-toe wedges, while the groom wore a a black suit, accessorized with a striped tie. Bridesmaids chose navy blue dresses in various styles to suit their figures and carried handmade bouquets of sunflowers, daisies, and mums. Guests were greeted with a chalkboard sign that said, “Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here! Love, Jill and Brian.” Can you guess what Jill drove to the ceremony in? A Jeep Wrangler! “We wanted the focus to be on bringing everyone together to share in the joining of two,” she said. “We met while I was still in graduate school at University of Virginia, and we loved the time we spent dating in Charlottesville and wanted to share the beautiful town with them.” Cocktail tables were decorated with baskets filled with sparkling water bottles and fruit, and yummy hors d’oeuvres were served hot-off-the-grill. The reception followed inside the barn where the newlyweds danced to “You Are The Best Thing” by Ray Lamontagne as night fell and stars began to rise. See the full board here.

Elizabeth + Peter: A Casual Summer Virginia Historic Home Wedding By Jack Looney Photography

Elizabeth and Peter were married in a traditional church ceremony at the University of Virginia followed by an outdoor reception at Ash Lawn-Highland in Charlottesville, Va. on August 10. They first met at a happy hour, while in graduate school in Chicago. After graduation, Elizabeth moved to Minneapolis and Peter to Dallas for jobs. “He proposed after a year of long distance – the distance definitely strengthened our relationship and brought us closer together,” Elizabeth said. Guests saved the date with hand-drawn maps. When it came time for the big day, it was raining, but it cleared up just in time. The bride wore a fit ‘n’ flare lace wedding gown, accessorized with a finger-tip length veil, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with silver vest and navy blue ties. “After the ceremony we had a receiving line with a lemonade hour so that we could talk to everyone and take pictures before the reception,” she said. Fun fact: the venue is the former estate of James Monroe, and menu cards were attached to bags of peanuts because that’s what the state is best known for! The newlyweds’ best advice? “Don’t forget to enjoy the day!” Elizabeth said. “It’s easy to get wrapped up in the little things, but the day flies by so make sure to really take it in.” In addition to a wedding cake, there was also a groom’s cake shaped like a dinosaur. See the full board here.
