The Mr. and I took a great road trip to Charlottesville, VA to attend the wedding of his former roomate who happens to be from Rome, Italy. This was my first time attending a vineyard wedding and it did not disappoint! Rolling hills, livestock, uninterrupted vistas and all the wine you can drink? I’ll take it. Here is the lovely couple on their walk back down the aisle together!
Aside from the simple beauty of the rustic venue, great wooden beams and a big old porch, and the farm fresh menu, my favorite part of this wedding was the bride and groom’s dramatic exit in a vintage Alfa Romeo.
After cutting the cake and snapping some party Polaroids, all the guests lined up outside and lit sparklers, creating the most romantic ambiance. Suddenly, the bride and the groom burst out of the barn doors as well all cheered, they jumped into their getaway vehicle (decorated with toilet paper and the like!) and off they drove into the night!
The wedding was held at Pippin Vineyards, for more gorgeous photos, check out their website here.
