A Mount Ida Wedding – Charlottesville, Virginia
Melissa and Mike were married on September 7th, 2019 at the oh so gorgeous and tucked away on it’s own, 5,000 acres of land, Mount Ida Farm in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Where do I begin?! First off, I have known Mike here since what? Seventh grade? Yeah! Crazy right? I have also gotten to know his sweet fam over the last few years, and I just love them all to pieces, especially his mama, Joni! When Melissa first emailed me, of course I thought to myself, oh, I know this will be a great wedding, but the funny thing is I didn’t actually know Melissa that well, but I still somehow knew it was going to be AMAZING!
Well, y’all, after I officially met her at their engagement session (you can find that here), I was 1,000% right! These two make quite the pair. When I think of them, I think true, equal balance. These two have it going on and their chemistry is oh so alive. When I walked into their wedding day, of course there was plenty of excitement to go around. All the planning, had finally come to fruition and it was finally time to get married.
Together, these two shared in becoming husband and wife before our eyes, they walked back down the aisle as HUSBAND AND WIFE!!! AH!!! Congratulations my sweet friends!!!
