Ashley & Will: Montfair {Charlottesville Wedding Photographer}

I’m excited to share my first Virginia wedding! Every week the couple go hiking; so, having their wedding in the midst of nature with trails, a lake, and the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance made perfect sense. This all inclusive spot known as Montfair Resort Farm is located just outside of Charlottesville.     The couple first met at University of Virginia’s inaugural Entrepreneurship Cup 2009 in the finals. However, it wasn’t until a few months later when they ran into each other again at an Entrepreneurship Society dinner that a romantic spark was kindled. Ashley’s now infamous yell across the room, “Hey, weren’t you the guy who presented something on ketchup?” somehow encouraged Will to connect with her via email a couple of days later. Will is a self-described southern, libertarian, Catholic scientist who enjoys being outdoors when not running his medical device start-up or being a research professor. Ashley shares Will’s love for the outdoors, which pairs well with her travel-enthusiast nature. When she’s not working her day job in marketing, she is focused on her side bakery business that specializes in fudge.

For their late summer wedding, they chose a color palette mixed with warm earthy tones and bright accents. A motif of banner flags was used on the program and pie toppers. Floral design included Juliet roses, craspedia, gyp, and coral & maroon dahlias. Other sweet touches included the buttons on Ashley’s gown belonged to her grandmother and Will’s father officiated the vow renewal. After an outdoor ceremony overlooking the mountains, guests celebrated with the couple in a cabin-esque pavilion on the lake. Congratulations Ashley and Will!
