Happy Monday! And oh. my. goodness. do we have a way to kick off your week with an abundance of beautiful! That’s because today we are sharing the wedding of two of the most BEAUTIFUL people we know!
Last year when we re-branded, we got really specific with just exactly who our Ideal Couple was and who we wanted to attract. We said we wanted a classic couple who loved black & white photos, had all the grace of Audrey Hepburn, but was down to earth enough to love Halloween like we do, was getting married in a mansion or historic estate most likely in black tie, and appreciated gorgeous architecture as much as we do. And the very first couple we booked after we launched our new site was Jamie & David. A couple who, get this, loves black & white photography (and Jamie even wore a black & white outfit to their engagement shoot in NYC), they love Halloween & Jamie even went as Audrey Hepburn one year, and they had their wedding at the gorgeous Dover Hall mansion outside of Richmond, VA (where David wore black tie) because of their love of classic architecture…because get ready for it…Jamie is an architect!! I mean, what?? This couple could not be more PERFECT for us…and that is probably why this is the longest blog post ever. It seriously took me DAYS just to narrow down all the hundreds of favorites that we had from their day to fit inside one post! And I think that’s what happens when you find the couples who are perfect for you…they pull your best work out of you!!
These guys got married on a gorgeous day, with so many amazing friends & family (we seriously LOVED everyone we met that day). And some of my favorite parts of the day were the ones that most showed off their personality. For example, the ever classic Jamie took inspiration in her custom-made gown from Kate Middleton’s dress & veil…and they were both jaw-droppingly beautiful! And besides being super classic in black tie, I loved that David showed off their super-fun, down to earth side with his choreographed dance with his mom that brought the house down! And maybe my favorite part of the entire day was when these two stayed back in the reception while everyone else was outside getting sparklers, to share a “last dance” of the night with just the two of them. Just one more moment to soak in the whole day & everything that had just happened. It was incredible & so emotional! And officially one of my new favorite wedding traditions EVER…this has to become something more couples do! Ok, enough talking…more photos! Here are just a FEW of my favorites from this incredible day!
Jamie & David, we’ve said it before so you already know how we feel about you….we ADORE you guys! We feel SO lucky to have been there with you. You made our work come alive! And we are officially friends for LIFE now!
So much love,
