Several Hollywood blogs reported Thursday that Jennifer Aniston and boyfriend Justin Theroux were married at Pippin Hill Farm this week. The farm and winery staff will not confirm if the story is true.

Local photographer, Jen Fariello, has photographed around 800 weddings in the past 17 years and was excited but not too surprised at the report.

"It's still a little bit of a secret, it's still a little precious it's still unspoiled so that's why I feel like this probably did happen and it makes sense that it could happen and why would they go anywhere else?" she said.

The reports say it was a small wedding at Pippin Hill Farm and Vineyard in North Garden, a location that has received national attention in magazines like The Knot and Southern Living Weddings. Over the past few years, Fariello said Charlottesville has grown significantly into a wedding destination.

"The scenery that's coming out of Charlottesville, the aesthetic that's coming out of Charlottesville is absolutely captivating," she said. "It's romantic, it's lovely it's beautiful. I think people are saying 'Where is that? I want to be there.'"

Pippin Hill confirmed that they did host a VIP wedding there this weekend but will not say for whom.

Harvest Moon, the reported caterer for the event, tells the Newsplex that they were not involved.

A marriage license for the couple was not found in neither the Charlottesville nor Albemarle County courts.

Fariello is friends with the co-owner of Pippin Hill, Lynn Andrews, and thinks that if it is true, it will come out when it's supposed to.

Whether the rumor is true or not, it says a lot about the evolution of weddings in Charlottesville. When Fariello started photographing weddings in Charlottesville, her clients were mostly local girls or recent graduates from UVa. Now her clients are from all over the east coast.

"It will just make people a little more curious about Charlottesville and tha'ts a win-win so you know and truly, I think Jennifer Aniston should be looking at Charlottesville and considering it."
