Gena + Molly | Richmond, VA Wedding
Gena and Molly were married on October 10, 2015 in Richmond, Virginia. The ceremony and reception we held at Deep Run Hunt Club. They chose this location because of the significance to Molly and her family. And particularity her mother, who passed when Molly was 16.
Here is what Gena and Molly shared in their wedding program about this special significance:
The Club has been a special place for the Tyson – Bryson families for many years. Jewel W. Tyson, “Papa”, Molly’s grandfather, joined in the 1930’s when it was located in town near Westmoreland and Broad Streets before moving to its current location in 1947. Papa served as club President in 1953. Molly’s mother, Connie, enjoyed fox hunting with him here at the club. A memorable pre-wedding party for Molly’s parents George and Connie Bryson was held here in 1955. After moving away from Richmond, the Brysons returned in 1968 and joined the club. Soon afterwards they built a home not far from here called “Cubfield”. The family spent many happy times at the Deep Run Hunt Club. There were hunt breakfasts on winter Saturdays and picnics by the pool on summer evenings. Connie kept her horse nearby. Betsy Bryson Frantz, Molly’s sister, was the pool lifeguard one summer. When Molly and Gena decided to be married, they considered several locations for the celebration. It’s hard to imagine a more perfect choice!
When we asked Gena & Molly to share their favorite memory from their special day, this is what they had to say:
“There are several so it is hard to narrow it down to just one. Some of them are: everyone dancing to We Are Family and I Kissed A Girl; the horses playing in the field during the ceremony, as if on cue; the sun coming out just as we got out of the carriage and were walking down the aisle; the sparkler exit in the golf cart; dancing with our wedding party; listening to our friends sing “I Choose You” during the ceremony; the Food; the cake; and, finally, it would be the feeling of being surrounded by love. The feelings of love and support that we felt were overwhelming.”
We were truly honored to photograph Gena & Molly’s Wedding. There were so many personal touches. They truly created the perfect event to celebrate their love and union as one.
