Wow was this a fun day! There was a donkey, a pony, a carriage ride, a beautiful bride, a handsome groom, and one of the wildest receptions we have ever seen. Meg had a vision for her day. She worked with Belles & Whistles to plan every minute of the day, and it could not have gone more perfectly.
At one point, we weren't sure their dream wedding would be possible because Hurricane Florence was threatening to derail everything. Meg + Alex must have some serious connections because somehow their wedding day ended up being 70 degrees and sunny!
We started the day at CCV Westhampton with some getting ready photos followed by the first look with the bride + groom. Alex's reaction when we saw Meg was everything. You could tell he was blown away by how stunning she looked as a bride. We snapped a few photos and then grabbed the full wedding party. We were able to knock out all of the wedding party photos before the ceremony, which meant their best friends got to head right to the reception after the ceremony!
They had an emotional ceremony at St. Stephen's Church. After their grand exit as husband and wife, they took off to CCV in a horse drawn carriage some a bottle of champagne.
Upon their arrival at CCV, Alex + Meg were greeted by the cutest donkey + pony! We snapped a few photos, and then headed inside to get the party started!
This day was perfect from start to finish! Congratulations to Meg + Alex!

Life Update! It has been an amazing 10 years of photographing portraits of all kinds in RVA! It was an amazing chapter in our lives, and we are ready to move on to the next. We will be shifting our business to solely focus on our commercial and editorial photography work, and unfortunately that means we will no longer be accepting bookings for our other photography services. Thank you for being on this journey with us and trusting us to document so many meaningful moments.
