Mary Jean and Josh | The Renaissance Wedding

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 for 2021! This day was still so special as Mary Jean got ready and took pictures at her parent’s house before the ceremony- I love it when the getting ready location is close to the bride’s heart and spent with her family and bridesmaids. After arriving at the venue, the couple did their sweet first look outside on Broad st. where we also took all the portraits. I loved the Richmond vibe for this day, along with a Christmas-themed wedding… it’s cozy, colorful, warm, and happy! The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and even better that they added a mini cake cutting to it instead of having the reception that day. Although it wasn’t the day they had pictured for a while, it was still so perfect.

Congratulations to the lovely Mr. and Mrs.- see you at the reception in a few months! 🙂

Kaitlyn and Cameron | The Vineyard Estate at New Kent Winery Wedding

Oh, friends… This October wedding of 2020 was one of my favorites! Kaitlyn and Cameron’s special day at The Vineyard Estate at New Kent Winery was beyond stunning. Every detail of this day was so carefully planned out with personal touches and it all went together so so beautifully. Between the napkins with their sweet doggy’s face engraved on it, the unique and beautiful florals, the detail in the bride’s gown, the colors, and subtle hints of Fall at the reception.. it was perfection. The day ended with that golden sunshine we all LOVE and finished out the night with a banger of a sparkler exit!

Kaitlyn and Cam were surrounded by so many loved ones and created one amazing wedding celebration. It’s obvious that their love for each other just grows stronger each day and allows them to blossom together through everything life brings them. I admire the relationship that they have built since high school and adore the sweet way they hold each other, look at each other, and laugh together. Nothing better than being truly forever in love. Cheers to the Mr. and Mrs. and all the blessings coming their way!

Westwood Country Club Wedding | Amanda and Dustin

Amanda and Dustin’s wedding took place at the Westwoood Country Club last August. Amanda and Dustin met through the dating app and on their first date they went to see  Thor at the movie theater together. Less than a week later, they  followed up that date with dinner. This was the date that the starts truly aligned for them! From that day forward, they were inseparable and spent nearly every day together. Down the road, Dustin planned the best birthday party surprise on his birthday! After a day of bowling with friends and family, Amanda’s friends diverted her to the bathroom to distract her from what Dustin was planning. Meanwhile, their friends and family set up the engagement in order to get an amazing photo op for the moment Amanda said “yes!”

Amanda and Dustin planned a beautiful wedding with the most gorgeous blues! They had an intimate (COVID) wedding with family and friends and this stunning venue was perfect for it. I adore this sweet couple and love that I could celebrate this special day with them. Congratulations Amanda and Dustin!
