My last wedding of 2012 was quite the adventure! Ashley and Steven asked me to come down to Richmond, VA to shoot their special day. I opted to drive down and make a road trip out of it. My cohort in crime, Emily Elizabeth Studios, came along as my sidekick and we had an epic time of it!
We started in Baltimore and worked our way down to Richmond where Ashley had planned the perfect day! We started shooting at Richmond’s Museum of Architecture, where we spent a couple hours having our own special photo shoot. We then ventured to the church where their families and friends gathered to witness their union. It was such a sweet and intimate ceremony with their closest loved ones who then celebrated with them at Maggiano’s Little Italy. It wasn’t your typical reception with all the events, but it was a cozy and heart felt gathering where stories were told and memories made. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to end the season! Thank you so much Ashley and Steven, it was so wonderful capturing your gorgeous day!
How did your fiance propose? With you!
Tell me a bit about the planning process for your wedding (how did you pick the venue, colors, funny stories, etc..): we just wanted close family there at one of my brother’s beautiful church buildings
What was the most memorable moment(s) of your day? Seeing Steven for the first time…just us
Funniest memory from your wedding day? Flower girl, piper, flattened on to her face right when it was her moment to go down the aisle and cried into the floor.
If you had to do it all over again would you change anything? Have the talented Dan Schultz sing a second song!
Any advice for future bride & grooms? Weddings grow in complexity. Small weddings become medium weddings. Large weddings become life-threatening stressful giant nuptials. Plan smaller than you want.
What was your favorite part about working with Mabyn Ludke Photography? She will do anything for a good shot! I think there were double doors held open with near-splits and straddling banisters unsafely over a drop to be far enough away for the perfect shot.
OH MY GOODNESS!!! I have been waiting for Ashley’s wedding photos. Mabyn they are gorgeous (as always). Love them <3<3
