weddings, branding, and personal life
Where do I begin with Emily and Jake? We have been through it all together…a pandemic, moves, postponements…I have even had a second baby since these two booked me back in the fall of 2019 for what was supposed to be their summer 2020 wedding. Alas, two years later, they got the celebration they have meticulously planned [three times] and that they so, so deserve.
Ashley is a third grade teacher, while Keith spend his days keeping us safe as a state trooper. Both living lives in service to their community, the care they display for one another and their loved ones was on display throughout their summer wedding day.
When you meet Mary and Will, you just get a sense that you will be taken care of. They have that air of Southern hospitality that shows you care and grace. They have known each other since they were 11 and 14! But get this–they didn’t start dating until her senior year of college at Virginia Tech (GO HOKIES!!). Will was persistent…every year when she came home from college, he would take her out on a date. He even told her, “I’m gonna marry you someday.” Lo and behold, he sure did make her his wife!
Samantha and her mother came to my booth in my very first bridal show back in September of 2019…yes, almost two years ago! Immediately both Samantha and I knew we were a good fit, and she ended up booking me on the spot for her June 2020 wedding. Little did we know what was about to hit us!
Despite some setbacks in the planning process of their day, Kaelyn and Tyler’s wedding day was just as beautiful as it was meaningful.
Kayla and Donovan were determined to get married on their original wedding date, so they had a micro-wedding with 19 of their closest family members and friends come together at the Historic Polegreen Church to say their vows.
2020 was a gray cloud, but it certainly did have its silver linings. While I was initially discouraged looking back on the year, with some introspection I realized that amended goals are not failed goals. Many lessons were learned and accomplishments were made, and I could not be more thankful for my clients, family, and friends!
Our first destination wedding to the Windy City of Chicago! With a beautiful bride, a dapper Navy groom, some Greek traditions, and the Chicago skyline as our backdrop, this day was one for the books!
Classic. Timeless. Elegant. Three words that describe Alli and Corbett’s DC wedding where they married themselves and shared the most heartfelt first look with one another. From her French twist to her simply, yet stunning bridal look, Alli embodied class and grace.
Despite rain (hey, it’s good luck, right?) and COVID impacting their wedding day, Meagan and Sean were the happiest couple ever to get married! From their first look to their sparkler exit, these two were smitten the entire time!
