Mindy and Travis’ Charlottesville Wedding


This Charlottesville wedding has everything you hope to see in a rustic ceremony. This beautifully romantic wedding is full of soft details that make the day truly represent Mindy and Travis as a couple.

Mindy says:

“Travis and I pretty much immediately decided on Charlottesville, Virginia. I am a University of Virginia graduate and Charlottesville is a lovely town  one of our favorite places  and perfect for us given our love for the outdoors. Before we decided on anything, I knew my wedding style: rustic-elegance. I envisioned the wedding to be romantic, intimate, full, natural and soft.”





We had several DIY projects that made the ceremony and reception both incredibly beautiful and extra meaningful. The chuppah (canopy) that we stood under during the ceremony was hand built and erected by Travis, while the wood slate boards we used for the escort cards and the wooden boxes that held our late night snack were made by a family friend.”





Mindy and Travis opted for less is more when it comes to our custom foil stamped Cocktail Napkins. Choosing our soft ivory napkins with Shiny Green Tea foil that pairs perfectly with the elegance of the day.



My surprise gift to Travis was an oil on canvas painting of our first dance. I flew in an impressionist style painter from California, Rich Flynn, who painted our first dance real-time, and continued throughout the duration of the reception. The painting is truly one of a kind! He managed to illustrate not only the physical elements, but also the emotion. “


We were so fortunate and grateful to have such a talented and creative team of vendors that helped to realize our vision and make our wedding better than we could have ever imagined. Travis and I cant thank them enough! It was an extraordinary day  the best day  and we cherished every moment!”
