Annie and Bill’s Castle Hill Cider classic wedding exuded a romantic ambiance. Golden accents throughout, bouquets lush with greenery, berries and deep burgundy florals exemplified the natural beauty of winter.

The Loft in Castle Hill Cider’s Cider Barn provided a gorgeous ceremonial space, bright with natural light, for the couple’s afternoon nuptials. The sweetly elegant atmosphere of the barn was completed with greenery draped along the back of the last row of chairs and an aisle covered with stunning white flower petals.

To add a fashionable touch of delicate lace to her dress, Annie slipped on an off-the-shoulder dress topper with sleeves.

The reception in the Cider Barn was styled beautifully, with draped lights, greenery and chic white table decor, creating an inviting yet intimate space. Gold accents were found in the chairs, the cake stand, candle holders and atop the cake, made by Morgan Phillips Cakes.

Annie and Bill were overcome with joy throughout the day as they celebrated their love and new journey as husband and wife surrounded by family and friends. Their wedding effortlessly captured the season and was a beautiful display of the talented wedding vendors in Charlottesville.
