That title is a little deceiving. We DID celebrate Meredith & Chris’s wedding at the Pauley Center near the VMFA in Richmond, VA, but first . . . we got them married in Charlottesville! On Friday, a small group of family and friends gathered at Chris’s brother & sister-in-law’s house for an intimate ceremony and dinner.
There was something really special about having their ceremony at a place that is special to them. It seemed like everyone felt right at home!
It’s not often I get to tell my couples, “See you tomorrow!” after their sparkler exit!!
The next day, we headed to Richmond for part II! I got to meet Mere & Chris at the The One, a quirky little bed and breakfast in my old stomping grounds. Since we were so close, we headed to the spot where Meredith & Chris’s love story began. They both lived in an apartment building on Hanover owned by the sweetest little Polish woman. After a while, Chris worked up the courage to talk to the cute blonde he kept seeing. 😉 I think it turned out well.
Meredith, Chris, and Penny (who was present everywhere, from Chris’s socks to the guestbook to Meredith’s bag!!),
Thank you so much for making me a part of such a fun wedding weekend! I hope you guys are having an AMAZING time in Italy!!
