VMFA Richmond, Virginia Wedding | Emily + David
Emily and David’s VMFA Richmond, Virginia Wedding was absolute stunner! Sometimes loves finds you when you least expect. So is the case for Emily and David who met at work in the ER. Their wedding was full of love, laughter and strong family and friend bonds – this wedding was a truly pleasure to be part of. We had the honor of photographing Emily’s Bridal Portraits and the couple’s Rehearsal Dinner so we truly felt like we were part of all of the festivities.

This was also the location of their reception so it holds a special place in her heart. A portrait from her session was showcased at the wedding on a gorgeous easel from Restoration Hardware.
Emily and all of the important ladies in her life got ready at the The Westin Richmond. Kaitlyn of Lou Stevens Glad Squad did Emily’s hair and make-up to perfection. Every detail from head to toe was exquisite. This day was truly about blending two families, so as you will from the pictures, Emily’s daughter, Dresden, and David’s daughter and son, Meredith and Eric, were included in every part of this day. From the girls getting ready with Emily, until everyone leaving together at the end of the night. As a photographer, capturing the couple’s first look was truly amazing. The kids were part of this special moment and they were possibly more excited that Emily and David.
The ceremony took place at Cannon Memorial Chapel on the campus of the University of Richmond. Leora Willis of With This Ring I Thee Wed officiated the ceremony and String Theory Quartet provided the perfect music. We are a sucker for handwritten vows and Emily and David did not disappoint.
Following the love-filled ceremony, their closest family and friends joined the couple for a reception at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. After dinner, the band DC Synergy kept everyone on the dance floor all evening long. The couple’s only complaint was that the night couldn’t have lasted longer.
Jessica, Megan, and Molly of Elevated Events of VA did a wonderful job helping Emily and David plan and execute this perfect day. There wasn’t a detail left undone and the couple selected the best of the best to help them achieve their dream wedding. And while Emily’s beautiful dress came from Bridals by Lori (of Say Yes to the Dress) in Atlanta, she made her own veil and much of the decor used that day.
This truly was the perfect day for Emily and David and we wish them all the best!
