Sometimes I think that the wedding industry likes to make couples feel like they have to spend a year (or longer) planning their big day – I’m sure the thought is that…the longer a couple plans, the longer they shop as well!  Michelle and Brandon’s gorgeous, heartfelt wedding proves that even a short planning time can result in an unforgettable day!  I got to meet Michelle and Brandon on March 24th, and just two months later – their big day arrived!  This busy military couple was able to plan everything with us via email after their initial tour!  They kept things simple and elegant – a blush pink and ivory color scheme, no wedding party (but getting ready rooms filled with joyful supportive friends instead!) and lots of special moments (and laughs!) shared with family and close friends and their fur baby Louie.   Guests traveled from as far as Texas and California to be a part of this special day!   Michelle and Brandon used a few favorite items from our prop inventory and added their own details including wooden accents like the sweet cake topper and the personalized plaque for guests to sign.  And following the ceremony, a trip up to the mountain top for some views to take your breath away and photos to remember the day forever.  I can’t wait to share a few favorite images from this incredible Virginia Wedding Day!

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs!
