I first met Maggie when she was a bridesmaid in the first Richmond wedding I shot last summer. It was then that I first fell in love with everything RVA and saw how spectacular a wedding in this city can be! Maggie & Alan’s Richmond Historic Tredegar wedding was full of character and the city’s one of a kind charm. Their day started at Maggie’s parent’s house where Maggie slipped into her dress in her mom + dad’s bedroom and, after sharing a few sweet moments with her bridesmaids and parents and snapping a few portraits in their backyard, we headed to Cathedral of the Sacred Heart for a beautiful Catholic ceremony in the heart of the city. The vaulted ceilings + intricate details of their ceremony site were absolutely stunning and made for such an unforgettable experience for their guests. We then took the trolley to Brown’s Island for a few cityscape bridal party portraits before heading to their outdoor reception at the Historic Tredegar, the site of an old ironworks factory. Maggie & Alan’s wedding day was so classically Richmond and so fitting for their love story – they met at a bar in The Fan several years ago and in the city where their history began they tied the knot and started a life together. Maggie and Alan, thank you so much for having me be a part of your beautiful wedding day. I loved meeting all of your family and friends and experiencing just how much you two are surrounded by love. I hope you cherish these photos forever!!
