private residences, offer lovely venue spaces for wedding celebrations. Exchanging vows under the blue Virginia skies and the venue's stately oak trees is a dream come true. Charlottesville is paradise for outdoor lovers and for those who appreciate amazing scenery. Couples can wow their guests with a reception set beneath a grand tent, a popular trend in our local wedding scene. Serving as a blank canvas, tents allow couples to have free range to create whatever décor and theme they want. Decorating with café lights, rustic wooden chairs, greenery and draped linens will add warmth to the sleek structure of the tent. Seven Oaks Farm & Vineyards (opposite page, top left) and Clifton Inn (above), with its impressive reflecting pool, are among the many venues where couples may choose to tie the knot outdoors. At Veritas Vineyard & Winery, couples may choose


to entertain in the striking wide-open spaces or the more intimate venues like The Farmhouse at Veritas, the Mezzanine or Saddleback Hall. For pastoral fields and flowering meadows, Castle Hill Cider’s property also creates a peaceful escape, with terraced lawns providing extra space for dinner guests. Newly engaged couples are undeniably charmed by the local barns that can house an outdoor cocktail hour and reception. Including elegant wedding details such as crystal chandeliers inside these rustic chic spaces adds charm and warms the space. Whether it's in the enchanting Blue Ridge Farm barn, the incredible artisancrafted Lodge at Mount Ida (top left page 19), Verulam Farm’s classic grand barn, The Farms of Turkey Run barn surrounded by boasting rolling hills or one of the area’s newest barns, Red August Farm in Waynesboro (page 18, at top), the dark hues and soaring timber ceilings pair well
