I am so excited to be working with you both! I have put together a list of some resources and recommended vendors that we've worked with for you to take a look.
ZOLA WEDDING REGISTRY
Zola is a wedding registry and planning resource site. They are based out of New York City and have recently opened an office in Charlottesville. We used them for our wedding registry and were really pleased! They also have a section of their website that lists vendors in Charlottesville (which are linked below).

ENGAGEMENT SESSION LOCATIONS
Monticello Trail : Beautiful big trees, trails, and open spaces. A favorite of ours, there are no shortage of spots.

Downtown Charlottesville : Colorful building, parks, and streets. You get a little bit of everything.
The Blue Ridge Parkway : Offers those classic mountain views and fun hikes.
Ivy Creek Natural Area : Long grass, nice fields and trees, as well as a big white barn that's very photogenic.
Mallory Joyce Design : Mallory is an artist with her flowers. They always look fresh and natural and perfectly complement the wedding.

Pharsalia : Beautiful, wild, and natural, are what I think of when it comes to Pharsalia (pictured left).
