Richmond…. Virginia’s capital. The perfect place to get married. They DO say, Virginia is for Lovers. I would know, I’ve lived there most of of my life until recently. Living in Maryland is what brought Laura, Tom and I together. They both live in Baltimore, but since Laura was from Richmond, it was only fitting to get married there! If you missed Laura and Tom’s engagement session you can check it out HERE, it was also featured in United with Love!! Laura and Tom have this chemistry. I remember when I met them in my office for the first time, Tom was so attentive. He simply adored her. I paid attention to the way he sat next to her, the way he held her hand. It was the same on their wedding day. He was smitten and she was so deep in love with him the entire afternoon she just lit up when his name was mentioned and EVERY TIME he wrapped his arms around her. That’s my kind of love right there!!!!
Laura’s choices of soft dusty pink, mauve, and gold were perfection. She wore a gorgeous gown from Justin Alexander, Toms for comfort and well, only fitting since she was marrying a Tom. She had the simple yet classic elegance look down to the romantic tendrils that fell down her back. The beautiful florals that seemed to be everywhere we turned to the romantic candles that sat center of every table she made it apparent that she wanted every single guest to feel warm, welcomed and loved when they entered the reception. Beautiful uplighting and the cake were perfect additions to the evening. It really was thought out and well done!!! The guys toasted to bourbon and got in their dapper black-tie suits and we were so incredibly lucky to be able to use Capitol Square as a backdrop for pictures on a GORGEOUS 70 something degree Saturday on the last weekend of March!!!! If I had to say anything about these two and this wedding day, it would be that it was Kismet.
