Michael and I live in Florida, but when it came time to plan our wedding we knew nothing could compare to the beauty of my hometown, Charlottesville, Virginia. As soon as we found Pippin Hill I immediately fell in love with the venue: from the gorgoues views of the Blue Ridge Mountains to the bridal suite, barn reception area and soft colors it was absolutely perfect.

Lynn Easton Andrews and her team at Easton Events created an event that was beyond our expectations. They took my simple idea of a romantic and timeless affair and turned it into an evening that no one will soon forget. We chose a color pallate and decor that would allow the natural beauty of the vineyard to shine through. Soft blushes, ivories, greys and pale green florals were accented with hundreds of glittering candles evoking a truly romantic feel.

90% of our guest list were from out of state, so it was very important for us that the wedding reflected the southern charm of Charlottesville. Trips to Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello were arranged, guests received Virginia peanuts and UVA goodies in their welcome bags, the food at the reception was locally inspired and we had custom Charlottesville maps created with our favorite restaurants and attractions.”
