Lindsay & Clay’s, Lewis Ginter Wedding was a gorgeous affair and luckily the rain held out past the main events! This has been the year of rainy weddings but thank the Lord the rain didn’t make it’s arrival until the evening. It was almost soothing being inside watching a summer rain. After all, it’s good luck on a wedding day!
I couldn’t wait for this wedding because I just adored Lindsay from the minute I met her! She was one of those people that has the warmest personality and always such a joy to be around! I just knew her wedding was going to be something special and it was. The flowers were in full bloom, and everything was so lush and green. It was almost as if we were in a secret garden! After the wedding, the storms started rolling in so we hustled inside but that didn’t steal the couple’s joy – it only increased!
By the end of the wedding all of Clay’s fraternity brothers had hoisted him and Lindsay in the air and it was a truly a site to see! Everyone was smiling and laughing and having a great time. Little did Clay know – he was about to get even happier. Lindsey rented him one of his favorite classic cars to exit in. When he saw it, he was beyond overjoyed! These sweethearts couldn’t have had a better day! Congrats Lindsay and Clay!

Lindsey & Andrew’s Cannon Memorial Chapel Wedding in Richmond, Virginia was everything perfect a wedding should be. Everything from the the historical chapel to her stunning gown was beyond beautiful. I must say, her intricately designed, lace dress was a favorite of mine. When Lindsey put it on she lit up a room. I was so excited about this wedding because Lindsey and Andrew were the sweetest, down to earth couple ever! When we met, we totally hit it off talking about football and our favorite Richmond restaurants. My absolute favorite moment from the wedding was when Lindsey & Andrew got on stage with the band and sang the night away. I’m pretty sure these two had most amazing time of their lives!
“I got a last minute invite from one of my best high school friends to go to an engagement party that his parents were hosting that evening. I did not know the engaged couple but said yes because I never turn down a fun party! I can’t remember who introduced us but Andrew and I started talking and we immediately hit it off. I was sitting at work one day, 2 weeks after the party, when he called to asking if I wanted to go to a baseball game. We didn’t go to the game but we met for drinks the next night and the rest is history.” – Lindsey

Chyrelle & Matt’s anniversary session at the Agecroft Hall was such a treat for all of us! Matt & Chyrelle had never seen this gorgeous house, so when they got there, their jaws dropped. It’s one of Richmond’s little secrets and such an asset to the city. As we strolled around the grounds, we could help but fall in love with the little details, and stunning architecture that this house had. With their anniversary coming up, we thought that pictures at this beautiful house would capture their love so perfectly!This two met and church and had instant chemistry!! They immediately hit it off when they found out each loved hiking and the outdoors. Three years later they are celebrating their 3rd anniversary and are still madly in love. I asked Chyrelle, “What has marriage taught you?“
“Oh gosh, a lot, ha. One thing that comes to mind though is the fact that we are a team. I am a very independent person by nature. Before marriage I easily lived a life of doing what I wanted when I wanted. It’s hard to change that thinking and behavior, but it’s so important for me to recognize I need my husband and he needs me. We might not always agree on everything, and heck, some days we don’t even get along, but that doesn’t mean we are any less of a team. And now I fully recognize how awesome it is to have a partner in life, that I’m not doing life alone. We still maintain a healthy balance of doing our own things and maintaining friend groups, but overall we share everything with each other. We are each others main support system and we don’t place anyone/ person/ thing in front of that except God.
Congrats you two!
