Back in October we had the honor of being a part of Alison and Jonathan’s wedding at the beautiful Kluge Vineyards. On the morning of the wedding we woke up to overcast skies and the weather forecast was hinting that we might be in for a dreary day. However when we arrived, we were blown away by the gorgeous scenery and as the day went on the weather turned out to be perfect! Alison & Jonathan did a great job planning their wedding with help from the awesome Megan Daubert who has quickly become one of my favorite wedding coordinators in Charlottesville. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is getting married and needs some help or guidance!
The ceremony was held outside of the beautiful Kluge church, underneath a canopy of trees and surrounded by the vineyard on three sides. It was the perfect backdrop for Alison & Jonathan’s fairytale wedding! As you will see in the fusion film it was a very tearful and touching ceremony, so afterwards everyone was ready to kickback and have some fun. The bridal party along with Alison & Jonathan kicked off the night in style as they busted out their best dance moves for the introductions.
I have to thank 20 South catering as once again they served up a delicious dinner with their trademark style. I always love working with them as not only is the food amazing, but the presentation is equally as spectacular. I always love the setup of the bar with their colorful lights, which often becomes the backdrop for my ring shots.
The toasts were heartfelt as each person shared a personal connection with Alison and Jonathan. The best man told us a story about how they playfully kidnapped Jonathan for his bachelor party weekend and how all of their careful planning went haywire. It was a little hard to take pictures as we were laughing almost as hard as Alison and Jonathan were! The maid of honor brought more tears to the room as she painted a picture of why Alison and Jonathan are so special and how they touch the people around them. We definitely felt that throughout the whole day!
At the end of the night everyone gathered outside the doors with sparklers to give the new couple an amazing send off. To complete the fairytale wedding Jonathan’s dad surprised them with a vintage Jaguar complete with a personal chauffeur!
As you will see, the energy throughout the day was amazing and provided for many awesome photos! I want to thank Alison & Jonathan again for letting us be a part of their wedding! We had such a great time and enjoyed meeting all of your family and friends! We hope you enjoy the fusion film!
