Emily and Brian (aka Brantley) grew up in the same hometown without ever knowing one another; their moms even worked together! It wasn’t until Emily went to meet Brian’s friend that she was introduced to… More
Although Betsy and Tom claim to have been super shy when they first started dating, their story is full of adventure! They’d go paddle boarding, horseback riding, and have bonfires on the beach. Eventually a hike through the Shenandoah Valley lead to their engagement. Like something out of a movie, Betsy turned around from looking out over the mountains to Tom down on one knee.
Betsy and Tom celebrated their “summer romance that hasn’t ended” with a September wedding at the Celebrations Manor House. They had the most gorgeous weather for their Sunday ceremony! Betsy’s boho, wildflower florals in fall colors were the perfect fit for the seasonal transition. The night ended with a grand exit first for me – they opted for vibrant ribbon poppers that provided streams of color and happiness! How fun is that!?
Betsy and Tom were a joy to work with! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. McCoy!

Corinne and Logan met in the summer of 2005. When the school year started, Logan asked Corinne to the homecoming dance on September 24th. They dated on and off throughout high school before deciding to go their separate ways. But they stayed in touch over the years, never losing the love and support they had for each other.
Fast forward to 2015: Corinne graduated from Virginia Tech and moved back home to Richmond. She invited Logan to come see her first “big girl” apartment in the city. He agreed, and visited her 10 years to the date they went to homecoming – September 24th, 2015. The chemistry was as strong as when they first fell in love and the rest was history 🙂
These two finally married and it was the most perfect day!! That dusty rose and pops of color they chose really popped against the pristine green golf course at Independence Golf Club and I LOVE the final images. They had a beautiful sunny day for their ceremony, followed by a fun-filled evening of donuts and dancing.
Congratulations, Corinne & Logan! Cheers to your future!

It’s obvious Allie and Phaon were destined to be together! They both attended Elon University. They both were college athletes – Allie was on the cheer squad and Phaon was on the rugby team. Then, they both ended up living in DC after graduation. That’s when they started dating, and their love story really began.
This wedding was a DREAM for me. From poppin’ bubbly in the gorgeous getting ready suite at Great Marsh, to the genuinely joyous bride jumping on the bed, topped off with BRIGHT pink florals – it was overwhelming trying to pick which photos to share. Their bride and groom portraits have to be some of my absolute favorites… a stunning venue with an even more stunning couple… I MEAN REALLY!
Allie and Phaon were truly the kindest, dreamiest couple and I loved every moment of this day! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Derr!

Katie and PJ decided to go through with an intimate ceremony at Barns of Kanak of April 2021 and to reschedule their big celebration for April 2022. This was so special being a part of a short and sweet ceremony surrounded by their closest family members. This venue was the perfect location for this, making everything easy and giving us a beautiful backdrop to work with. I can’t wait to share the second Leegan wedding, but for now enjoy these pretty pictures!
