Sylvia + Michael | Charlottesville, VA

Sylvia and Michael didn’t want the traditional wedding. No bridesmaids, no ring bearers, no bouquet toss. What they did want, however, was a beautiful, intimate setting where they could gather and celebrate with their closest friends and family. They wanted to be able to mingle and talk with their guests and not feel overwhelmed or harried. When they told me they were planning on having their ceremony in UVA’s Garden X, I couldn’t think of a more perfect place!

Sylvia and Michael decided that they wanted to see each other before the wedding. I can’t tell you how much I love first looks!!

While I was getting shots of the bride, John took Michael around to another part of the garden for some individual portraits. Michael, you are looking quite sharp.:-)

Oh, just a typical day in the garden.:-)

This is Sylvia finding a new use for her bouquet….:-)

Back in Garden X, guests were beginning to arrive and take their seats. Michael and Sylvia had the opportunity to greet everyone before the ceremony began.
