Country Club of Virginia Wedding | Lauren & Peebles


It was such a privilege to be part of Lauren and Peebles’ wedding at the Country Club of Virginia in Richmond, VA. It goes without saying that I love working with and photographing each and every wedding I take on in a year — after all, I limit my commissions to twenty so that I can ensure it’s always a great fit! But there are always a few that I am REALLY excited about for one reason or another and this was certainly one of those! Lauren and I had emailed back and forth over the past year talking about all the amazing details she was going to incorporate into her big day and I knew it would be such a joy to capture her vision. And trust me, when I say this day was detailed, I am not exaggerating — it was so much that for the first time ever, I am breaking up a wedding into two different parts! 

I first arrived in Lauren’s light filled bridal suite to capture all those little touches she had pulled together. Among some of my favorites were her jaw-dropping Paolo Sebastian gown that would make any ballerina jealous, a calligraphic invitation suite designed by one of her bridesmaids, and delicate jewelry ranging from her grandmother’s vintage rings to earrings designed by Liv Hart. After dressing, Lauren met Peebles for their sweet first look where he read her handwritten vows in an intimate moment shared between the two of them. Their families and wedding party joined them for portraits before heading out to a stunning sunset ceremony where they said their “I do’s” hand in hand. 

Be sure to check back on Wednesday to view the second half of this amazing black tie wedding — I promise, you don’t want to miss their dreamy sunset photos or stunning reception space!
