Hello, and happy 2018 to all! I am so excited for the upcoming year, and so grateful that I got to ring it in doing what I love: being a wedding photographer! Yes!! I spent the last moments of 2017 behind my camera at a beautiful New Year’s Eve wedding that I’d been looking forward to since the summer! In May 2017, I worked with Brittney and Kevin on their engagement session in Richmond. I was honored that they asked me to photograph their NYE celebration, and immediately began to get excited about it. What a night!
Brittney and Kevin tied the knot at the historic Jefferson Hotel in Richmond (it dates to 1895). The hotel was beautifully decorated for the holidays, with one of the tallest trees I’ve ever seen. It was absolutely magical! Brittney wore a stunning lace gown by Pnina Tornai, with a striking low back and a gorgeous cathedral veil. Her bridesmaids wore black gowns (the wedding colors were black and gold – the perfect palette for the day) and their ivory bouquets were a classic, elegant touch. Brittney and Kevin are a truly kind couple, and I could tell that their guests were really having a blast. A New Year’s Eve Wedding is so much fun!! For the countdown to midnight, the newlyweds stood in the middle of the dance floor surrounded by all of their excited loved ones. At the stroke of the New Year everyone celebrated with a big burst of golden confetti! It was the perfect, exciting end to a truly elegant wedding!
Finally, I have to say what a compliment it is when a past client refers me. It means the world to be able to develop a relationship with a client over time and share in multiple events in their lives, whether it be their own wedding or a wedding they attended! So thank you Cara and Trey for referring me, and thank you Brittney and Kevin for letting me be part of your big day. I feel truly lucky that I got to spend this New Year’s Eve with such sweet clients! Enjoy this selection of photos from their celebration!
