Bringing Bridesmaids to Your Wedding

June 3rd, 2013

In case you missed it, Bridesmaids a one of kind movie that nearly everyone loved- especially brides! They could relate to the not-so-perfect wedding planning moments and the sisterly bond that most bridal parties come to share.

So why not bring a little bit of that movie magic into your real wedding?

One of our brides did and we were thrilled to see her Bridesmaids-remake photos featured on Here Comes the Lovely.  It is fun to get creative with wedding photos and it seems we are not the only one who enjoys a humorous and light-hearted wedding photo.

Thanks Here Comes the Lovely for sharing this bride’s special moment with her dearest friends.

Richmond Wedding: Jennifer and Daniel!

August 24th, 2012

We love when a couple is just so full of love and wants to make us a part of their special day. As soon as we met Jennifer and Daniel we could just tell this was going to be a fun filled wedding.

We adore how they decided to take the less traditional route with their abundance of cupcakes placed on beautiful pedestals. And we have no doubt you’ll love their cake topper as much as we did!

Thank you to Jennifer and Daniel for letting us share in their special day. And a huge thank you to Nick Kessler Photography as well for allowing us to use these wonderful photos.

See you soon,
