Have you ever heard that tagline, “So very Virginia?” Well, when I think of Will and Leslie’s wedding, those words pop in my mind, but refined specifically to, so very Charlottesville. What I loved most about their wedding were all the unique and personal touches, like Leslie’s dress and barrette specially designed and made for her by the ladies at Posh. The wedding ceremony took place right next to the free speech monument at the Downtown Mall. Guests gathered at the monument beforehand, drawing and writing their well wishes to the couple. Leslie processed with her daughters from the Omni Hotel to the other end of the mall, receiving many congrats and interested looks. The LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph was taking place that entire weekend, which probably meant that Leslie and her girls were the focal point of several festival goers with cameras.
After Will and Leslie exchanged their “I Do’s, ” they took their portraits along Main St. on the way to Maya Restaurant. I loved the set by DJ, Patrick Critzer. He had a continuous mix of eclectic and obscure eighty’s going all night. Some of the most unforgettable moments? Will and Leslie’s first dance sung and performed by Leslie’s daughter. Tearful speeches, hilarious musical performances, Maya’s fried chicken, BBQ ribs and bourbon pecan pie.
