Charlottesville Charm {Stephanie & Jay}

This fabulous wedding kicked off my wedding season at one of my favorite venues- Keswick Hall in Charlottesville, VA!

The magnificent Adam and the rest of the staff at Keswick outdid themselves again!  The couple started the weekend off with an intimate rehearsal dinner in the board room, a welcome reception surrounding the pool, as well as golf and skeet shooting the next morning!

The bride started off her morning in my favorite way- running with the hounds!! Every Saturday morning, the Keswick Hunt Club goes for a run... and you can join!  For all of my fellow dog lovers, what a great way to start your wedding morning!

Then we were off to hair and make up with the wonderful Pattie Martin and Abri Harrison of Hair by Jewels.

I ADORE this picture of the bride and her niece!! Keswick's suites provide such a wonderful backdrop for photos and makes it easy on the planner to keep the bride and groom from seeing each other!  Thank you Jack Looney for the beautiful photos! 

The beautiful ceremony by the pool just reflected the calm and peaceful nature of this wonderful couple!

After our I do's the couple took some photos around the amazing grounds of Keswick!  

Stay tuned for photos of the gorgeous reception and a romantic surprise with cake cutting!!
