I have a feeling that there are a LOT of people waiting to see this blog! Jess & Stephen have a group of incredible friends that are probably the most EXCITED friends I’ve ever seen on social media. There have been countdowns and hashtags and photos popping up on my newsfeed for MONTHS! Everyone was just so excited to celebrate these two, which made me extra excited to head to the Branch Museum of Architecture and Design for their big day!
I loved getting to be a part of this love story that has been years in the making! Plus, Jess has just been such a sweet, happy bride from the start, so I’m excited to show off all the hard work she and Caroline have been doing to plan a gorgeous wedding!! Just wait until you see these sparkly details. 😉
It was a HOT day in Richmond on Saturday, but when you have seven amazing bridesmaids with fans, it’s not so bad. Talk about teamwork. 😉
JESS. Get out with this model status!
Jess and her dad had the CUTEST first look ever.
Jess’ dad walked her down the aisle, then put on his robes to officiate the ceremony. How cool is that??
When dinner started, I got Jess and Stephen to sneak away with me to one of my favorite spots on Monument. It pays to shoot a wedding in your own backyard!
Jess & Stephen,
Thank you SO MUCH for choosing me to be a part of your wedding. It was such an honor, and I can’t wait to see what adventures are ahead for you guys!! 🙂
