Imagine a mountain top ceremony surrounded by your closest friends and family on the most beautiful summer day. That was the picture-perfect setting for Jackie and Kyle’s sweet Mount Ida Farm wedding. Jackie and Kyle are kind and generous and so smart and we’d been looking forward to their wedding since their downtown Charlottesville engagement session last fall. Mount Ida is a photographer’s dream and we took advantage of every bit of it- the stunning mountain views, the vineyard, the darling pond.
Leading up to their big day Jackie and I bonded over birdcage veils and wedding dresses with pockets- a gal after my own heart! She was such a classy bride! Elegant and serene all day long. The day was filled with so many thoughtful details like carrying the same bouquet that her mom carried on her own wedding day and carrying on the tradition of something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, AND a six pence in her shoe. I’d forgotten about that last part but it’s a tradition in the Donovan family!
Jackie and Kyle’s wedding was one of the last ceremonies at Mount Ida’s mountain top location and we were honored to capture the day. I’ll never forget the way Kyle looked at his bride as she walked down the aisle and I love knowing their grandchildren will know that look of adoration by looking at their wedding photos (and the sweet video our friend Ben created- at the end of the post) for years to come.
Jackie and Kyle, thank you for inviting us into your lives and trusting us to capture your day. It was an honor and we hope you love re-living these sweet moments. You guys are a beautiful couple and it was a gift to watch the way you love each other. We can’t wait to see the amazing things you guys do as a married couple. Enjoy some of our favorites!
