Where: Mt. Ida Farm
The Couple’s Love Story:
Kari & Jason met on Wednesday Wine Night in the local bar Boars Nest at Old Dominion University. Jason was working behind the bar and Kari came in with one of her best friends. It was love at first drink :).
The most memorable moment of the day for Kari was seeing her Dad and Jason for the first time. Here is a look at Kari’s touching first look with her father. Jason’s most memorable moment was seeing Kari for the first time as she was walked down the staircase toward the gazebo where they were married – and throwing their hands in the air in celebration after the ceremony!
Kari & Jason were inspired to have an outdoor traditional southern ceremony that was more official with a laid back/ New York style cocktail hour for the reception. Mount Ida Farm offered the perfect venue and backdrop for their wedding! Jason put his amazing artistic abilities to work on many of the details. The DIY and handmade details offered personal touch to their wedding.
After their wedding Kari & Jason went on their honeymoon to Granada and had a blast- so now their main focus is remodeling their house together. Oh… and they want babies… but not quite yet.
Words of wisdom from the couple:
“DESTINATION WEDDING!!!!!!!!! Just kidding. Relax and enjoy the moment. It flies by— oh… and spend the extra money on a good photographer and videographer. You will want to look back on the memory!….we are so glad we did!”
