Mount Ida Wedding, Charlottesville, VA

(Click on the picture to read more) It was a stunning Fall day for Erica & Brady’s wedding at The Lodge at Mount Ida Farm & Vineyard. Mount Ida is a unique and luxury venue on a secluded 5,000-acre sanctuary, which is home to 4 different wedding venues, a vineyard, and brewery. The Lodge is a former 19th century stable, now turned into a flexible event space, adorned with oak panelling, a stone fireplace, crystal chandeliers and polished concrete floors. There’s even a built in stage for the band! It is a beautiful place for couples who want that elegant and rustic charm.

Erica & Brady had a lovely fall theme from the flowers, to the bridesmaids dresses, and decor. We have Cultivate Event Co., MS Events, Blue Ridge Event Productions, and Cody Smith Weddings to thank for the gorgeous wedding set up and staging. The Local and Maliha Creations provided great food and tasty treats for all to enjoy. Anna Kardos Photography and Silver Streak Media made sure to capture all the loving and heartfelt moments.

Erica & Brady were so lovely to work with. They had a beautiful wedding with their friends and family. We ended the night as we always do, dancing and having a great time!
