As a prior English teacher, I love telling each of my couple's love story. Each story is unique and in a culmination of love and a little planning, the wedding day brings that love to life in front of family and friends. As a lover of heirlooms and legacies, it's a joy to be alongside each of my couples as they create memories that will last forever for their children and grandchildren!

Taylor and Andrew tied the knot on a beautiful June evening at Belle’s Pleasure in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Her bouquet by Nana Floral was stunning with vibrant summer colors, variations of pink, white, and pops of yellow. I loved how it was so romantic to compliment her lace-embossed gown with off the shoulder straps and the blush bridesmaids gowns. Andrew and his groomsmen were looking dapper as well in their gray tuxes that were perfect for their summer wedding.

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!
