Farmington Country Club Wedding, Charlottesville, VA


(Click on the picture to read more) Kerrigan & Briggs were happily married on June 18, 2022, surrounded by friends and family. We started with a gorgeous ceremony at Grace Episcopal Church, where Kerrigan wore dress number 1, a wonderful, three quarter sleeved dress with elegant lacing, and all paired with a beautiful bouquet of white roses and blue accents. The wedding party complimented each other beautifully with the striking black tuxedoes and blue bridesmaids dress to help tie in the colors and theme of the wedding.

Just happily married bride and groom celebrated their wedding with an elegant, luxury wedding reception at Farmington Country Club, surrounded by a unique blend of classic country club ambiance and historic estate scenery. Farmington Country Club has existed for over 90 years and the octagonal Jefferson Room was designed by Thomas Jefferson himself.

From planning and details by Donovan-Groves Events, photography by Jen Fariello, cinematography by Ian’s Creations, and amazing floral arrangements by Southern Blooms by Pat’s Floral Designs, the wedding was perfectly done. All night long from the stage, we saw great execution from the wedding team.

The reception and catering was all courtesy of Farmington Country Club. When it was time to announce the bride and groom, we did so in style. We lead them into the room while playing “When the Saints Go Marching In!” Kerrigan surprised everyone by coming in in a new dress, dress number 2, a pretty floor length dress with a bow on the back.

Leading the Bride & Groom

They shared a heartfelt first dance with “Stand by Me” by Ben E. King, then it was time for toasts and toasts are one of the best things about weddings. Toasts are a great time to show love and good wishes for the bride and groom.

It was finally time to party and party we did. We sang all their musical favorites and even had a surprise performance by one of their friends who is in his own band! Kerrigan stunned us again by coming out in dress number 3, a beautiful strapless dress with delicate lace. The party never stopped and we sent Kerrigan and Briggs off in style with sparklers. Kerrigan showed off her own style by coming out in dress number 4, a wonderful knee length dress.
