Bridal Shoot on the Campus of Washington and Lee University

Categories Real Weddings

College sweethearts, Dale and Amy went to Southern Virginia University. They played sports, learned a few things, and fell in love. Wanting to incorporate their college experience into their wedding, Amy and Dale envisioned time alone before their ceremony. Something soft, romantic, special … just the two of them before they said, “I Do”. They opted for a bridal shoot near their wedding site, on the beautiful and historic campus of Virginia’s Washington and Lee University. Captured by {BMW} Photography Amy and Dale’s bridal shoot is peaceful and intimate. What a great idea for a first look and pre-ceremony photographs! Enjoy this beautiful couple–on the grounds of this lovely campus.

Congrats Amy and Dale!

Color Monday: Artsy and Modern

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

Reminiscent of last Color Monday, today’s industrial-style wedding, features a modern couple with an artistic flair and a love of color. This soft shade of purple is a definite complement to the sleek, stable look and feel of charcoal grey. Harmonizing with the purple, is sunflower yellow on the wedding invitation. Doesn’t it add a nice pop of cheeriness to the whole palette? Be sure to check out this personalized version of Honeycomb Cluster … the sweet Wedding Invitation + Thank You Card design featured in this board.

Color Monday: Ivory Tower

Categories Inspiration

Hello, Color Monday!
Our inspiration for today celebrates a modern, urban couple and their industrial style wedding. Imagine a unique venue space where the ceilings are tall and the floors are concrete. A large space made intimate with special seating areas, unique lighting concepts, and long rectangular tables. Oh, and the bridesmaids’ dresses are mix and match in white, blush and ivory tones. The featured Save the Date is Royal Emblem and portrays the simple yet stylish sensibilities of the couple. The color scheme is a palette of neutrals–earthy yet elegant, sophisticated but not fussy. 

Are you a fan?

Outdoor Military Wedding at Norfolk Botanical Gardens

Categories Real Weddings

In remembrance…
On the 12th anniversary of September 11th, we’re honoring the memory of the victims and dedicating this post to their precious family members. We also want to give a shout out to our men and women in service. Thank you! And God bless.

Catherine and Matt were married in a beautiful, outdoor garden ceremony at Norfolk Botanical Gardens. Matt in his dress blues and Catherine in her lace, mermaid gown and cathedral veil–they make a stunning couple! And the only things making this picture any prettier are the lush and gorgeous gardens and the presence of family and friends. Enjoy.
