Everyone stop what you’re doing! I have a new wedding to add to my “All Time Favorites” collection! This one is a beauty, so you definitely want to see it!!
You might remember Alix and Charles from their oh so very Richmond engagement session. I loved them then, and I love them even more now. On Saturday I got to see Alix and Charles with their family and closest friends, and it was a truly special experience. These two are so loved, and you could feel it all day long. When I say their wedding day was perfect, I honestly mean that it was perfect.
Alix got ready at the Berkeley Hotel, in a beautiful room with fantastic windows! I was in heaven. After she was all set and looking amazing in her gown, we headed to the Virginia State Capitol for her to see her groom!!! After Alix and Charles had a few sweet moments alone, we moved into some portraits…and they were champs. It was hot!! The bridal party met up with us soon after for some photos (LOVE this crew!!), and then it was off to New Kent Winery!! Every step of the way was beautiful, and my excitement radar was off the charts.
Alix and Charles, I caught you looking at each other throughout the night and your eyes said it all. I love the way you love each other. So many people love you and share in your excitement that you are now husband and wife! I wish you all the joy and happiness in the world as you begin this journey of marriage.
Enough jabbering! Here is the story of the day through my lens. Enjoy this lovely wedding!! I’m still drooling!
Alix was very specific on what she wanted from her bouquet. I heard her say on SO many occasions, “I LOVE these bouquets!” Flowers by Mona Ray did a fantastic job of bringing to life just what Alix wanted…and I loved them, too!
Really enjoyed photographing at New Kent Winery!!!
Great set up for the cake and cupcakes!! Pearls Cupcake Shoppe did a fantastic job on the sweets!
