Vendors in this Wedding
Tom form Twin Oaks Flowers did a beautiful job with our flowers. It was important to use to try and keep as many of the elements of wedding local from Charlottesville, so we found Tom at the local farmers market. He will tell you he is not “florist” but a flower grower. I wanted to hire as many local companies as I could, so I was thrilled when he offered to take on the challenge of putting together the flowers for our wedding. I wanted to use as many local grown flowers that were in season as possible, and he did not disappoint at all. Amazingly beautiful bouquets he created for us at a fantastic value. I was blown away at how beautiful everything came out. When we walked into our reception I felt as if we were in a local field of fresh tulips. His work just took our breath away.
Katie was a great videographer. Having a videographer was not something we had originally intended to have, but after speaking with several friends that were recently married, the one thing they mentioned that they wished they had or loved the most, was a videographer. So the search began for a videographer. We hired Katie later on in our planning process so budgets were already tight, but Katie delivered a great product for a great value. I loved the wedding highlights reel she created of our wedding. It really sums of the day for us. I find myself going back and looking at frequently to just relive the day. We are so happy with the videos she created of our day.
I loved working with Bella Bridesmaids to find my bridal party dresses because they have such a large selection with several designers, multiple color options and the best part is, they only sell bridesmaids dresses. Because that is their main focus we were able to find 4 different dresses, in 4 different colors that all worked beautifully well together.
Sweethaus cupcakes….mmmmmm…..my mouth is watering just thinking about it. The girls at Sweethaus make amazing cupcakes and cakes! We opted to do the mini cupcakes in about 4-5 different flavors, plus a small cutting cake on top. All of the flavors were so great that it was hard to pick just 4 or 5. But they did not disappoint. We decided on a completely different flavor for cutting cake too, a lemon cake with raspberry compote. We did not save our top layer for the 1 year anniversary because it was just way too tasty! I would highly recommend going to Sweethaus for either your cake or cupcakes. They will not disappoint.
Sarah and Dave were amazing. We met them at a bridal show in Baltimore and we just clicked. Every time we met with them it was like we were meeting up with old friends. We would always have so much fun with them laughing and talking. Sarah was such a big help with great advice for me through the planning process and coordinating all of the timing of the photos. Their photos are so beautiful and professional. You get amazing quality for great value, and a fun time too. They were so flexible too, because when some of the timing got delayed on the day of the wedding due to weather and wardrobe issues, they worked hard to make sure we got all the shots we wanted in time for the events. Even though we have since moved to Florida, I would hire Sarah and Dave in a heartbeat for any other photos we will ever need.
Pippin Hill was absolutely amazing. The service was beyond what we could have asked for, the food was mind-blowing and so delectable. The wine is fantastic too. The view and venue itself were just breathtaking. At Pippin Hill, we were able to make our dreams come true for our wedding. The event coordinator made sure I had peace of mind all day, and they took care of the inclement weather plans for us, which we did have to use. Getting married on the veranda we feel was even more beautiful and amazing than had we actually had the ceremony on the lawn as originally plan. The view of the mist on the mountains and vineyard as our backdrop for the ceremony was absolutely beautiful. We could not have asked for a more beautiful, friendly, accommodating, and just all around fantastic venue. Getting married at Pippin Hill was one of the best and easiest decisions we made with our wedding. It takes just one visit there and I promise you will fall in love with Pippin Hill.
