A Sophisticated Southern Wedding in Charlottesville, Virginia
Elizabeth Fife (27 and a registered nurse) and Philip Goffinet's (27 and an advertising operations manager at SoundCloud) nuptials combined two of our favorite things: childhood sweethearts and wedding royalty. Elizabeth first met Philip—wedding planner Lynn Easton's son—when her family moved from London to Charlottesville, Virginia. They were just seven years old and Philip admits to immediately developing a crush. "She had the most adorable British accent," he recalls. Seven years after they started dating "officially" in high school, they made the easy choice of having Philip's mom help plan their wedding. "She just so happens to be one of the top wedding planners in the country, so I was in good hands," Elizabeth says. Talk about an understatement! With Easton's help and a muted pastel color scheme, the couple transformed Elizabeth's family's property into a sophisticated backdrop for their timeless day.
