Jennifer & Chad | Williamsburg Winery | Wedding Day Recap

Surrounded by so many warm, kind people, Jennifer and Chad were married on Saturday at Williamsburg Winery. Jennifer and Chad have been together since they were 13 and their wedding day was evidence of a long, developed, meaningful love story. The ceremony was my favorite part! Jennifer and Chad served communion to their guests. It was a precious picture of the kind of love they have for God and for their friends and family. I think I can honestly say I have met one of the nicest people on the planet after interacting with Jennifer throughout the planning process. She is a gem and I'll never get over watching her love on her guests, the vendors, and her new husband. 

It was an honor to work with so many wonderful vendors, all of which worked so diligently to make the day happen. Thank you, Perry Vaile Photography, The Herrintons, East Coast Entertainment (Forest Hill Band), Incredible Edibles Bakery, Evan McKeel, Pastor Tommy Moore, and Williamsburg Winery for providing the BEST service to our clients. I cannot wait to see the photos and video!

I hear there's a video teaser coming SO SOON from the Herrintons. You will NOT want to miss it!!! For now, here are some iPhone snaps to tide you over. :)

Jennifer and Chad, thank you for letting me be part of your love story. It was a JOY and I will cherish this day always. Enjoy your honeymoon!!! 

Special thank you to my amazing assistant, Kelsey. You went beyond the call of duty and I could not have done this day without you. 

Matt & Kim | Norfolk Botanical Garden | Agha Photography

Kim and Matt came to me through my good friend, Sharra. Right away, I knew that they were down to Earth, FUNNY, and we would definitely get along. I love how comfortable they were with one another, like they had been together forever. A few of the times we chatted via Skype, they had just cooked up a fancy dinner. They definitely have good taste in food - and their caterer, Supper Southern Morsels, totally delivered!

Their summer wedding at Norfolk Botanical Garden will always be a memorable day for me! It was HOT, I was pregnant, and we had to use our rain plan. I think you'll see it wasn't a bad call to make! ;)

Enjoy these photos from Christian Agha. Complete vendor list at the end.

How about this rain plan!? Gorgeous!

Shea & Adam | Woman's Club of Portsmouth | We Are The Mitchells

Every wedding I've been part of has touched me for one reason or another. For Shea and Adam's, it was the fact that everyone was so kind. Guests, family, bridal party, the two of them; all quality humans. Their friends are more like family. My kind of people. I'm excited to share some of my favorite moments and details from their wedding day. Captured by We Are The Mitchells, I hope you enjoy looking back at November 27, 2016 as much as I do!

I didn't include photos of all the sweets on their dessert bar, but they had donuts, ice cream, and cookies galore!!! I tried my very best to stay away! And Miranda, Adam's sister, did the cupcakes!

A last minute exit idea: cellphone lights!

Cassie & Stephen | Getting Ready & Details | Michael and Carina Photography | Williamsburg Winery | Williamsburg, VA

Every single wedding I get to be involved with is a blessing to me. Cassie and Stephen's was no different. I was brought on board about 2.5 months before their big day. Cassie had already built such a beautiful foundation of design details, I just knew it was going to be a memorable experience.

I'm excited to share some of my favorite getting ready and detail shots from Michael and Carina Photography. I hope you enjoy! And in case you missed it, see this gorgeous wedding on Style Me Pretty.

Cassie's invitation suite was DIY. I mean, c'mon! So beautiful!!

Brides, if your photographer will take the extra time to clear a corner of your getting ready space, you will be thrilled with the outcome. There are no distractions in this shot, even though the room was filled with bags, makeup, lunch, and other items belonging to the bridal party.

Detail shots, even ones without the happy couple included, are a wonderful way to help preserve the magic of wedding day. If your photographer is given ample time to grab these shots, your wedding day memories will stay with you for the rest of your life.

More of Cassie and Stephen's ceremony and reception will be up next week!
