Wedding Weekend in Charlottesville, VA

Over Labor Day weekend Kyle and I packed up and headed south for Charlottesville, VA. I was lucky enough to be a bridesmaid for one of my oldest and dearest friends Danielle. I've actually known Danielle's family since before she was born since our parents live across the street from each other in their first grown up neighborhood. Danielle and her sister Lauren have been like sisters to me and Priscilla and her parents like a second set of parents. We are so lucky to have them in our lives and I'm so happy we got to celebrate with them this weekend.

This was our first trip to Charlottesville but definitely not our last! Between the cute historic town and gorgeous vineyards it did not disappoint.

When we arrived on Saturday and we were quickly swept away onto a bus to start our day. Our first stop was Veritas Vineyard and Winery for the rehearsal and a wine tasting. The venue was absolutely beautiful!  I also think Veritas Rose might be my new go-to! I didn't get a lot of photos of Veritas since we were moving all around learning the ropes for the wedding day.

Our next stop was King Family Vineyards.  We were given a private tasting and then we got to explore the grounds.  It was absolutely beautiful here. The views of the Blue Ridge Mountains were breath taking.

 We then headed to The Local for a cocktail hour, rehearsal dinner, and post dinner drinks/soiree.  The food was amazing at The Local and I don't think it was just because I'd had about 8 glasses of wine already... 

No detail was left untouched this weekend! Each table was lined with the most beautiful floral arrangements and candles. Every one got their own stemless wine glass with the bride and grooms monogram and wedding date. 

And  because it was a kid free weekend we had to end our night at the hotel bar with some drinks... I did not partake in the shots though.

Sunday morning we woke up early and headed to The Nook for breakfast.  It was right on the promenade and was the perfect spot to fill us up before a day of wedding festivities!

We then headed to Vertias to spend the day getting beautiful! The weather was absolutely perfect, it was the perfect temperature with a slight breeze in the air.

I've decided I want professional hair and make up everyday.

Could this view have been anymore beautiful?!
