Charlottesville Wedding Planner: Hannah Rose Design

So, you’re thinking about having a Charlottesville wedding. I may be biased (okay, very biased), but I think you’ve made an excellent choice! First and foremost, cheers to your engagement. I couldn’t be more thrilled for you to embark on this journey of forever with your favorite person. Secondly, I am sure your mind is spinning with all the things you need to do to plan for your big day. I’ve been there, and I know how rewarding (and stressful) this time can be.

In between having your engagement party and taking your engagement photos, you must choose your wedding vendors. It can be so tough, since there are a multitude of fantastic people to work with in the area. Well, I’m here to provide you with exclusive insights on why you should definitely be planning your Charlottesville wedding with the talented Hannah Rose Design!

1. Let’s talk about you! What are a few personal things you’d like to share with potential clients about Hannah Rose Design?

“I love weddings and all things wedding related! I’m obsessed with ribbons both in wedding related applications and in my day to day life. When I am not planning, I love exploring all that the Charlottesville area has to offer. Food is one of my passions so I’m always in the kitchen cooking or dining at one of my favorite restaurants (Tavola is my favorite in Charlottesville!). On weekends I am often with my boyfriend and my dog at a local winery soaking up some sunshine.”

2. What do you love most about your job as a Charlottesville wedding planner?

“Getting to know my clients is one of my favorite parts of the wedding planning process. The connections we build last long after the wedding day. On wedding days watching an empty event space transform into an event is truly something special.”

3. What is your favorite part of the wedding day?

“The first time the groom sees the bride- whether its a first look or when she takes her first steps down the aisle. I also always encourage my clients to bury the bourbon! It’s such a fun southern tradition and makes for the best photos and fun bridal party experience day of.”

4. What’s one “must have” piece of advice you’d give to couples starting the planning process?

“Make sure the wedding feels authentic to you- I always want my couples to feel like the wedding planning process is truly theirs.” 

5. What is a dream wedding venue or city you’d love to work in?

“In the Charlottesville area, I’d love to work at Pippin Hill- I got my start in weddings on their sales team and would love to produce a wedding there! 

Anywhere in the world- I’d love to do a wedding on an Italian Vineyard. I love wine and Italian wine is my go to always!”

hi, i'm danielle—

In the past 10+ years as a Wedding & Portrait Photographer, I’ve found that, aside from arming myself with my cameras to catch swoon-worthy moments of my couples on their day, I’m also bringing a few other unexpected things. 

Like my tough love mom-voice that will keep your bridal party in check, my air of calm if you’re feeling overwhelmed, and the corniest jokes so no one has the jitters in front of the camera!

Because so much more goes into getting those gorgeous wedding photos than just hitting “click!”

and I'm not just bringing my camera to your big day.
