Ashley and Will’s Montfair Resort Wedding from Priscilla Thomas Photography

I love it when a Charlottesville wedding embraces our beautiful location and shows off what is so special about our area. Ashley and Will’s wedding does just that. Their had a laid-back vow renewal at Montfair Resort the day after their intimate, Catholic ceremony is so full of charm that you’ll find yourself wishing you were part of the fun.

We got the full story from Priscilla Thomas Photography:

Every week Ashley and Will go hiking; so, having their wedding at Montfair Resort, in the midst of nature with trails, a lake, and the Blue Ridge Mountains, made perfect sense. 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, and coral & maroon dahlias. Other sweet touches included the buttons on Ashley’s gown, which belonged to her grandmother. After an outdoor ceremony overlooking the mountains, guests celebrated with the couple just steps away from Montfair’s lake.
