It was a beautiful sunny day in Richmond VA when Lauren & Matt Decided to tie the knot at Tredgar Iron Works. Wanting something that wouldn’t be a lot of fuss they figured that Tredegar would be naturally aesthetic pleasing and not require a lot of fuss. The old brick, iron, and river background is spectacular all on its own, and made a perfect back drop for the ceremony. Lauren dressed in a beautiful lace dress with a white flower head piece that gave her look a 1920′s vibe and Matt in a tailored black suite they said their I do’s hand in hand while being serenaded by their old friends (like something out of the movie love actually). I’m so happy to have been a part of this day, here are a few of our favorites from the day.
It’s impossible to say what I love most about her since there is so much to love. I adore her laugh and smile and I love the way she brings out my strong and confident side. However, I think I most love her caring nature towards others and her drive to make the world a better place for everyone, be it human or animal or other. Oh, and she’s a great cook, too!
He is so compassionate and caring. While I would never ask him to, he would give up anything for me, and that feeling of love and devotion is overwhelming. He is silly and dorky and always trying to make me smile. He makes me believe I am strong and beautiful. He is willing to try new things (e.g., yoga). His sense of humor is basically as bad as mine. I can list so many things, but the bottom line for me is that I am his, he is mine, and we are us – and I had never been so happy and felt such a depth of love until those three things came into being.
