Becky and Eric tied the knot this spring after seven years together. They met in their second year at the University of Virginia and have been together ever since! The quiet and picturesque Wolftrap Farm in Gordonsville, Virginia was the perfect place for this sweet couple’s elegant celebration. The rolling hills led down to their outdoor ceremony where their adorable dog joined them! A simple and soft palette of peach, blush, and gold created the perfect accent to the gorgeous natural surroundings. Amanda C Blake Photography was behind the lens.
From the Bride…
One of the many things that Eric and I have in common is our love of Hilton Head Island, SC. When we first met, we were excited to find that both of our families vacationed on Hilton Head whenever possible. The first time we said “I love you” was on those very beaches. We were merely sophomores at UVA and knew that we were meant to spend the rest of our lives together. Five years later, Eric proposed to me on that very same beach… the beach that we would later spend our long-awaited honeymoon!
Details of the Day:
The wedding palette kind of chose itself as we looked at bridesmaid dress colors and linens and such. I fell in love with the melon/peach colored linens provided by our planner and it kind of went from there. I wanted to add a touch of elegance to the rustic venue so we decided to add some gold in with the coral and peach tones. The guy’s seersucker suits were a fun addition to the overall theme of southern elegance that we were going for. What was nice about the venue was that we didn’t have to do much to it. The scenery and perfect weather that day spoke for itself. I tried to use minimal decor so as not to fight with the natural beauty of the place.
