If rain on your wedding day is good luck, these two are definitely luck! Despite the rain, Mason and Olivia had the most perfect day. Throughout, a thunderstorm threatened creating gorgeous light for their first look. Though it sprinkled at first during the ceremony, guests were prepared. The rain eventually stopped as these two stood under a tall tree at James Monroe Highland to say I do in today’s Charlottesville wedding.
Mason and Olivia cried tears of joy all day; when they first saw each other (at their first look AND as she walked down the aisle!); when they opened gifts the other had spent countless hours working on; and again as they got to say the words ‘husband and wife’ officially for the first time. Though the details were beautiful, they put more thought and care into the most meaningful parts of their day, choosing to center their wedding on all the right things.
Mismatched lavender and blush bridesmaids dresses made ALL the ladies look good, and their bouquets filled with blue thistle and pops of red were the perfect mix of unique beauty. Olivia’s chapel-length train held lace from her mom’s wedding dress, and they kept sustainability as a focus by giving wildflower seeds as their wedding favors. Everything came together beautifully.
