CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (June 2015) – Ivy Publications, an award-winning boutique publisher located in beautiful Charlottesville, Virginia, is proud to announce the release of its newest publication, Charlottesville Wine & Country Weddings. Local publishers unveiled the high-end art book celebrating elegant weddings in Jefferson’s Virginia at the acclaimed Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyard. “Our idea for Charlottesville Wine & Country Weddings came out of our love and adoration for this place,” enthuses Co-Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Jennifer Bryerton. Charlottesville is not only home to the prestigious University of Virginia, but also to the city’s rich local history, including Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, which also attracts thousands of visitors each year. In addition to the historical significance of the city, the picturesque wineries and vineyards and abundant live arts and entertainment earned Charlottesville a spot on the Orbitz Worldwide list of the “Top 5 Destinations Every American Should Visit” in 2014. Charlottesville Wine & Country Weddings captures Charlottesville’s unique charms, stunning mountain views, rich history, farm-to-table dining and more while showcasing the many offerings and talents of our local venues and wedding professionals.
The beautiful art book will introduce Charlottesville, already a very popular East Coast wedding destination, to a national platform. Couples and top event planners from New York to Beverly Hills will be inspired by the stunning photography and creative design that evoke a timeless elegance — formal yet familiar, relaxed yet sophisticated. Charlottesville Wine & Country Weddings’ simple yet elegant innovative design reveals exquisite imagery of the region’s romantic landscapes and an exclusive look at portfolios of over 50 talented wedding professionals. “It has been both a pleasure and an honor to collaborate with the very talented wedding artisans in our community who’ve all come together to help create this book,” adds Co-Publisher and Creative Director Robin Johnson-Bethke. Working with nationally acclaimed fine-art wedding photographer Jen Fariello as the Creative Consultant, Ivy Publications has created a truly lovely wedding art book that will further establish Charlottesville as a top wedding destination.
Copies are available at select Barnes & Noble Booksellers nationwide along with high-end boutiques both locally and statewide. Copies can also be purchased online or purchased from their office in Ivy, Virginia.
