Charlottesville Backyard Wedding // Jenny + Nick // Virginia

When looking for mountain views, sometimes all you have to do is ask Grandma! When Jenny & Nick realized they needed to postpone their big wedding, they decided they still wanted to make it official on their original date & venue. But once they realized how much travel that would entail, they then discovered Jenny’s grandparents home was far more convenient and just as beautiful for a Charlottesville backyard wedding. So they pivoted their fall wedding to a location just north of Charlottesville, VA.

In addition to planning an entirely different wedding, Jenny also decided to take on another project for herself – she was going to make her own wedding gown. I was so impressed upon learning she crocheted the entire gown herself! Her friends were just as surprised as impressed during their first look with Jenny. I remember hearing a bridesmaid exclaim how much she loved the sleeves because she didn’t know there were going to be sleeves. Jenny replied that she didn’t know either haha – she just got those sewed on on the car ride up from Georgia! 

Although Jenny and Nick weren’t planning for a first look, they had to see each other at some point before heading over to easier transportation logistics. So we opted for a very impromptu but nonetheless joyful first look. They gave each other the biggest hugs and beamed with excitement for what was to come next at their fall backyard wedding.

Although these two have been referred to as an old married couple having been together for over 12 years, it was still a joyous day for friends and family alike. Their backyard wedding was absolutely breathtaking. Their styling included elegant bohemian inspired touches, from the colorful floral invitations to the floral crown worn by Jenny. Between all the personal touches, the amazing weather that day, and having the support of those most important to them, it was perfect.
