A Garden Wedding: Dave & Karen

When the Director of the Richmond’s Historic Garden Week, with the Garden Club of Virginia, gets married – you can bet there were a lot of beautiful floral decorations incorporated into this backyard wedding.  Dave, being a videographer, staged every detail – even the cloud coverage for beautiful light!  The couple began their day with a morning ceremony in the backyard of there home.  In the presence of family they were married by the friend who brought them together.  They wanted to emphasize that their marriage was the blending of their two families and Karen’s daughters had the special role of walking their mother down the aisle.  In the evening they hosted a party at the Kent-Valentine House, the headquarters for the Garden Club of Virginia.  The family celebrated with friends from all over the globe who flew in to be a part of this couple’s special day.With Mosaic catering and a special gift by a friend who happens to own Belmont Butchery , they all enjoyed amazing food in a stunningly classic, Richmond setting.
