Mary Jean and Josh celebrated their wedding day during COVID which meant downsizing and moving a few things around. They decided to have their intimate ceremony with their closest loved ones and leave the reception… More
Sydnie and Dylan were such a JOY to work with on their beautiful day at Cousiac Manor! My favorite part of their love story is that they knew each other in middle school and “had one of those week-long boyfriend/girlfriend thingys” as Sydnie calls it (lol). Fast forward to 2013, Sydnie was going to a concert at Innsbrook with one of her friends and her boyfriend at the time. Her boyfriend’s best friend just so happened to be Dylan. She said they just instantly hit it off and the rest was history! These two are clearly meant for each other in every way and they bring so much light and love into everyone else’s lives. Cheer to their future and all the blessings coming their way!

Amanda and Trevor were married at the Celebrations Manor House surrounded by all of their loving friends and family! I have known these two for such a long time just by growing up in Midlothian, but I have never truly gotten to know them. They’ve been together for as long as I can remember, way back to high school! Finally getting to know them better after their engagement session and wedding, I adore the love they have for each other. They are also parents to their sweet boy who was a part of their first look, which I know they will cherish that memory forever.
Congratulations to Amanda and Trevor, wishing you many blessings!

Jess and Kemper met on Bumble, although Jess is pretty certain they had met 3 years prior on Bumble but never met up due to busy schedules! Crazy enough, the two also only lived a few blocks away from each other the entire time and most likely crossed paths unknowingly multiple times. The two moved to a different location in Richmond, walked their two dogs daily to the VMFA. Jess had a favorite bench about halfway between the museum and where they walked. On the day Kemper proposed they were on a walk with the dogs and stopped at the bench. As they got up to make their way back home, Kemper made the dogs sit and he proposed! The surprises weren’t over yet, as Kemper had also made reservations at Jess’ favorite restaurant, Stellas. He clearly knew how to plan an extraordinary proposal! They also had a trip planned to fly to Mexico the following day which Jess had assumed was just a vacation. Little did Jess know, until after the fact, that their trip to Mexico was actually a an engagement celebration- such a fun idea!
Jess and Kemper had a beautiful garden wedding at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. They were able to celebrate their love for each other surrounded by their family and friends. The gardens were in full bloom which made the absolute perfect backdrop for both their ceremony and reception. Their sage green bridesmaid dresses looked absolutely beautiful with the spring florals!! Jess did a first look with her father and Kemper. As you can see by the pictures below, both first looks were very emotional and sweet! Their flower girls were so excited to walk down the aisle before Jess walked down with her dad! It was a gorgeous day with a super fun exit of LED sticks and tambourines. Such a fun night, I just loved this wedding!!
Congratulations Jess and Kemper!!
