RICHMOND VIRGINIA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

This past October I had the pleasure of capturing Addie & Todd's Richmond themed wedding at the Branch Museum of Architecture and Design. From the first time we met I knew they were good people.  The two of them share a love for dogs, just as I do. Their wedding favors were donations to the SPCA, which only made me like them more! 

Addie is originally from Baltimore, and Todd is from Philadelphia.  They met and became college sweethearts at the University of Richmond, and continued their relationship after graduation, when they moved to New York together.  When they got engaged and started planning their wedding, they knew they had to return to their favorite city to say "I do." After all, it was where their love story began. The theme of the wedding was a tribute to the city, complete with Richmond city streets for table names, and desserts from all of their favorite sweet shops.

The weather was beautiful that day, and warmer than usual for late October.  The leaves on the trees had just begun to turn, creating the perfect backdrop. Not only did the couple travel for the wedding, but every guest except for one had come from out of town to be a part of their special day. 

The wedding party started the day at The Berkeley Hotel getting dressed, then headed over to the Branch Museum for final touches. Addie and Todd then had a First Look. After spending a few minutes together to soak in the reality of it all, the wedding party came to join them and share in their special moment.  The excitement continued throughout the entire day; There was so much love surrounding these two, and you could just tell how much they meant to each other and their guests.  

I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites from this classic and FUN downtown wedding!
