Jessica & Walt's Wintergreen Wedding | Charlottesville Wedding Photographer

Jessica and Walt chose one of the most beautiful locations on the east coast for their wedding day! Wintergreen Resort has so many picturesque spots for an outdoor wedding. The Blue Ridge mountains in the summer are full of greenery, but still look blue which is what makes them so beautiful. I love that they chose the mountains as the backdrop for their first look and ceremony. Mountain weddings are quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Jessica and Walt chose beautiful colors of gray and yellow to accent the mountain scenery. So many perfect details for a summer wedding.

Their wedding day started at the Wintergreen spa for hair and make up and then back in the lodges for the final touches. The girls' lodge was full of light and rustic details. The flower girls were so sweet getting into their tulle dresses with big bows. Walt sent Jessica the sweetest wedding day gift and Jessica wore another very special bracelet for her wedding day, a gift from her late grandmother. The bridesmaids wore beautiful yellow jewelry to match their gray dresses and the guys looked so amazing in their yellow accented bow ties and pocket squares. Walt even added some yellow Converse sneakers to his wedding day wardrobe!

Jessica and Walt had their first look at the highest overlook at Wintergreen. With the mountains just peaking up in the background they had the sweetest first look. They laughed, kissed, talked, and shared a few sweet private moments before saying "I do". Jessica and Walt chose to do all their portraits before the ceremony so they could enjoy cocktail hour with their friends and family. Their cocktail hour was outside on the terrace again overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains and the ski lifts at Wintergreen.  They had games for the kids and adults and some delicious looking appetizers too.

The reception was held indoors at the Skyline Pavillion. The tables were decorated with beautiful yellow flowers, lanterns, and wooden table numbers. There was a cupcake table filled with a variety of flavors, including chocolate bacon cupcakes! The room had a large dance floor which was filled with glow sticks late in the night and a lot of dancing! The entire night was full of energy and laughter and ended with a sparkler exit that almost didn't happen due to a few sprinkles! The guests were then invited to an after hours party which I'm sure just became more fun as the night went on.

I'm so excited to be doing a few more weddings at Wintergreen this year. Mountain weddings are unique in so many ways and they have a scenery that cannot be matched. I hope you all enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed taking them!!
