Welcome back to Part Two of Morgan and Michael’s beautiful Charlottesville wedding! After the ceremony at the UVA chapel, we headed across town to Farmington Country Club, a gorgeous Charlottesville destination for golfers and wedding goers alike. From the beautiful view of the golf course and surrounding mountains, to the iconic Jefferson Room, and the chandelier clad ballroom , everything about Farmington exudes elegance and classic style. Upon arrival, Morgan, Michael and the entire bridal party were ushered in by Morgan’s grandfather.
It really was such an emotional moment.
After the performance, everyone enjoyed the cocktail hour outside on the lawn and the adjoining terrace.
Of course, we had to take advantage of the beautiful afternoon light and the stunning view.
Back inside the ballroom, the tables were adorned with gorgeous peony arrangements (hats off to Pat’s Floral Design for all the flowers) and delicious spreads of food.
Thanks to SC Fusion for keeping the party hopping all night long!
Morgan’s younger brother provided some great musical accompaniment to her father’s toast and slideshow.
Yes, we were all in stitches!

Then Michael and his mother were up next.
After the formal dances, it was time to cut the cake! Farmington did a fantastic job with this beauty.
Morgan surprised Michael by singing Etta James’ At Last during the reception. Morgan, you have a beautiful voice. I know Michael was (and always will be!) absolutely smitten.
While everyone was dancing, Morgan and I slipped out to get these shots in the Jefferson Room.
At the end of the night, everyone gathered in the Jefferson Room for the bouquet toss. One of my favorite aspects of this room is this balcony. It’s the perfect spot for tossing the bouquet.

Morgan and Michael: What an honor it was for John and I to be a part of your day! It’s remarkable how strong your love is for each other, and the kindness, care, and affection with which you treat each other is absolutely breathtaking. We wish you a lifetime of love and friendship.
