I’m pulling out an “oldie but a goodie” in my portfolio of weddings to share Katie and Kyle’s wedding day at Mount Ida Farm in Charlottesville, Virginia. I second shot this wedding with Chelsea Schaefer in 2019. But their wedding was beautifully timeless and I still see so many details that are trending in weddings even three years later. I hope the below images serve as wedding decor inspiration and wedding style inspiration to more couples, because I could photograph that light blue and champagne wedding color palette every day and never get tired!
Not to mention, who doesn’t love a Mount Ida Farm wedding? If you are considering this venue for your special day, don’t hesitate. It has all the charm of a farm with the class and appeal of a vineyard/estate. It truly gives the best of both worlds.
Despite being a chilly day, the sun was beautifully golden, contrasting the beautiful dusty blue bridesmaid dresses and champagne details of their decor. This Mount Ida Farm wedding ceremony took place at a high-ground field overlooking the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains. Then the reception took place in the barn with enchanting twinkly lights swooping from the raftors.
And just when I thought the wedding itself was beautiful, then I got to know Katie and Kyle better! Katie’s gift to her groom was a pair of Millennium Falcom cuff links. Obviously, I was instantly won over as a fellow Star Wars fan, myself!
And even three years later, the one thing that stood out to me most at this wedding was their outrageously fun bridal party. These people were a RIOT, and you could tell that each person was there to celebrate the couple to the fullest.
