A little over a year ago I received a call from a guy named Ricky.  A nervous, excited guy who was planning a sweet proposal to his girlfriend of several  years.  We planned for Ricky to propose to Jessica in the Italian Gardens at Maymont in Richmond, VA.  It was the most perfect morning for a proposal and it went off without a hitch!  See that blog feature here: Ricky & Jessica’s Proposal.

Jessica is a part of the wedding industry and we quickly became friends through networking events and then when she and Ricky asked me to photograph their wedding.  Jessica planned a beautiful wedding at The Mill at Fine Creek.  Her vision came together through many little details that made the day that much more special.  She hand-dyed the ribbon that was used for their bouquets and detail styling.  The florals by The Proper Petal complemented the color palette perfectly.  Blush-n-Bronze did a stunning job on Jessica and her girls’ hair and makeup. Her mermaid style gown by Essence of Australia fit her like a glove and Ricky’s grey Jos. A. Bank suit was paired with a navy polka dot button down.  Jessica had a tie made for him for the wedding day that was embroidered with, “You’re my favorite” and their wedding date – such a sweet idea!

The ceremony and reception were speckled with touches of greenery, eucalyptus, and vintage rentals from Paisley & Jade.  Jessica is a calligrapher and all lettering for the wedding was done by her.  The cakes were made by the legendary Richmond bakery, Shyndigz.  The toasts by best man and maid & matron of honor were some of the sweetest and comedic I’ve ever heard!  The best man basically roasted Ricky in front of all the guests and Jessica’s girls brought everyone to tears.  It was such an incredible night! Jessica and Ricky danced the night away with their friends and family – these two really know how to throw a party!  I hope you enjoy these as much as I do – and I wish you two the very best!
