Independence Golf Club Wedding | Maureen + Nick

Maureen and Nick had the most gorgeous wedding at the Independence Golf Club. It was classic, chic, and so much fun! We kicked off the day with the absolute best first look. Nick had one of the cutest reactions I’ve ever seen from a groom. He could not get over how stunning his bride looked! They shared a couple’s tequila shot before boarding the bus to their ceremony at the Church of the Epiphany. After the ceremony, we took golf carts out for fun bridal party shots. In true Remy Photos fashion, they went for the big champagne pop! We lucked out with a beautiful sunset and Maureen’s grandmother’s fur coat was the perfect touch for the end of those portraits. After their party came to an end, Maureen & Nick shared a private last dance that literally brought me to tears. They have one of the most precious relationships I’ve ever witnessed and I’m so grateful I was able to capture this special day for them.

Xo, Remy

The Boathouse At Sunday Park Wedding | Haley + Evan

I ask all my couples to fill out a questionnaire during their wedding planning process and one of my questions asks them to tell me more about their love story. This is one of my favorite stories that Haley told me… “Evan and I met in Kindergarten! We were in the same class and our Kindergarten teacher is actually going to officiate our wedding! I had a crush on him in Kindergarten, but he thought girls had cooties, so apparently my feelings were unrequited. We had crushes on each other off and on growing up (we “dated” a few summers in middle school), and after my family moved we stayed in touch by attending the same community pool each summer. We had our first jobs as lifeguards together there in summers during high school, and after a few years of the timing being wrong, we officially started dating junior year of high school. About 6 years later, after we both graduated from UVA and had been working in different cities for a year, we moved in together and adopted a dog, who we named Cora after the pool we went to growing up. After over 7 years of dating, we went hiking to a waterfall in upstate New York, and Evan proposed to me there by the edge of the water with only our sweet dog as a witness…it was beautiful. So depending on how you look at it, we are college, high school, and kindergarten sweethearts.”

How amazing is that!? I rarely get to photograph high school sweethearts, but these two are basically Kindergarten sweethearts!! Haley and Evan are so in love it makes me tear up just looking back through their wedding gallery. They are the kindest people with the sweetest families and they are truly so special. This wedding was one of my absolute favorites from beginning to end! Not only is The Boat House at Sunday Park one of my favorite venues, but because the couple made it 1000 times better than I could ever imagine. I’m so thankful they hired me and that I could be a part of their big day.  I’ll also be photographing Haley’s sister’s wedding this winter and I’m so excited to party with them all over again! 🙂

Congratulations Haley and Evan! Thank you for asking me to capture such a joyful day full of endless love and laughter!
