Johnny + Velvet | Country Club of Virginia Wedding

The wedding season is finally over and as I said before, I can’t think of a better wedding to end the season with!

Friends and family from near and far descended on Richmond for what was to be Velvet and Johnny’s wedding weekend. Instead in turned out to be halo of love that came to surround these two as they pledged their forever.  Throughout the weekend all everyone spoke about was love for Velvet and love for Johnny.  Stories were shared, old friendships rekindled and new ones made, tears of happiness shed and new dance moves learned.:)   I know everyone will agree that it was an amazing wedding weekend filled with nothing but lots of love, hugs and well wishes for these two.

Johnny and Velvet THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the honor of documenting your wedding and new life together.   Many blessings to the both of you!!!!! XOXO

Enjoy the highlights from their wedding day.

Sharon Jarrett of Jarrett Affairs and her team did an outstanding job with the reception decor at the Country Club of Virginia.  I died and went to detail heaven when I walked into the dining room.  SWOON!

James + Gina | Hyatt Regency Greenwich Wedding

It seems like only yesterday that James and Gina were sitting on my couch with Bailey jumping all over them and now 9 months later we were celebrating their wedding at The Hyatt Regency Greenwich. These two met while attending Fairfield University and their relationship came full circle as they said their “I Do’s” at Egan chapel on campus grounds.  During the ceremony, I would glance across the church pews and you could see the love their family and friends have for the two of them.  It was truly a special day.

James & Gina, thank you so much for inviting Raf and I to be a part of your date and enjoy a few of our favorites from the wedding!

Wonderful pictures that I will look at over and over again !

Happy Anniversary!!!

Where did the time go? I can’t believe that it’s already been 7 years since we said our I do’s.  I still remember that day like it was yesterday.

Remember the bet to see who would cry first?  I still think I won!!!:)  And yes, I rocked my vows!!!!   Raf. thank you for standing by my side through the good, the bad and the ugly.  Thank you for being a friend.  Thank you for always being on the sidelines cheering me on.  Most importantly though, thank you for the laughter.  You still make me laugh as much as we did back then, (even at 5 o’clock in the morning).  I couldn’t think of a better person to share my yesterdays, my todays and tomorrows with.  Here’s to a lifetime of many more laughs!!!

XOXO
