Classic Richmond Wedding at John Marshall Ballrooms

I first had the pleasure of meeting Sally in 2016 when I was back home in Richmond for Christmas. Her best friend, Taylor, grew up next door to me and asked if I would meet Sally to talk through the process of starting to plan a wedding - one of my absolute favorite things to do with friends!  By the end of our conversation, Sally’s infectiously cheery personality had me dying to work with her, so when she asked if she could hire me I was so excited!  And the icing on the cake… At the time, she and her fiancé, Kyle, lived just outside of Chicago. making it a match made in planner heaven.  

To create an event that reflected their relationship and incorporated their families (who are amazing, by the way), Sally and Kyle included a few really unique touches.  Sally added a pin that belonged to her grandmother which said “I love a VT engineer” because Sally’s late grandfather was a Virginia Tech engineer and so is Kyle!  They also brought Kyle’s love of mountains and outdoors into the gorgeous John Marshall Ballrooms by having The Lighting Professors create a starry night on the ceiling.  Talk about romantic.

My favorite pictures - by the wonderful Amanda Manupella - are a few that share the emotions of the day: the father/daughter and mother/son dances, and Kyle and Sally’s reaction to the toasts.  They are so genuine and Amanda captured the feeling in the room so incredibly well.
