Autumn is a spectacular season to experience in Charlottesville. The vibrant colors provide a romantic backdrop for any seasonal wedding. Changing leaves provide florists and planners the opportunity to capture and showcase the burgundy, plum, maroon and brown hues that are so evocative this time of the year. Incorporating the natural elements will only enhance an already intimate experience. We hope you enjoy one of our favorite fall-inspired photo shoots.
