Jenna and Mike planned and absolutely perfect day. They organized their shot lists, hand picked all the pretty details, and even booked a shuttle to transport them to the capitol building for special photos.  Jenna’s planning was impeccable- but her wedding day far exceeded anyone’s expectations. The weather brought skies fall sunshine that brides dream about when they pick a date in October,  and if anyone deserved such a beautiful day, it’s these two!  The way they look at each other is enough to make anyone believe in love. Their friends and family were warm and welcoming- as the celebration went into the evening, toasts from loved ones prompted plenty of laughter and a few heartfelt tears. It’s a sure sign of  a great couple when they surround themselves with wonderful people!

We went a little overboard with the sneak peeks for this wedding and I think you’ll see why. The John Marshall Ballrooms might be our new favorite Richmond venue…we LOVED shooting here.  Jenna and Mike, congratulations on your marriage; may every day be as happy as your wedding day!john_marshall_wedding_001576 john_marshall_wedding_001577 john_marshall_wedding_001578 john_marshall_wedding_001579 john_marshall_wedding_001580 john_marshall_wedding_001581
