Glamorous John Marshall Ballroom Wedding

Oct 10, 2018

Sarah & Jack’s John Marshall Ballroom wedding in Richmond, VA was one of my most anticipated weddings of the year! I had the opportunity to get to know these two during their Georgetown engagement session last fall in Washington, DC and we immediately clicked. Throughout the entire planning process, Sarah and I were always on the same page and she made planning for their big day FUN! I looked forward to just reading her e-mails, so you can imagine how I felt about the “I do’s!” Sarah said this day was four years in the making; these two knew each other was “the one” within weeks of dating, so the anticipation for them was even greater. 

This fast and easy relationship may have something to do with the fact that Sarah is a talented photographer herself, but also because these two are also just kind and caring people — as are their families! They asked countless times throughout the night how WE were doing and ensured myself and my second shooter were not only fed, but even had a seat with their sweet guests. 

I also knew this would be one of the most lively dance floors I had ever seen and boy, was I right. See, Sarah and Jack met in JMU’s swing dance club (yep, another amazing JMU couple!!) and so it was basically a dancefloor full of professionals! I found myself watching in awe through my lens and have some really fun photos of their crew throughout the night.

Like always, I felt a twinge of sadness as the night came to an end, marking another beautiful wedding day with two of the sweetest people I’ve worked with. Luckily, I have even MORE photos to share next week — Sarah’s epic bridal portrait session at The Branch Museum! 

To Sarah & Jack, I hope this day was everything you had dreamed of over the past four years. Thank you for your incredible kindness, attention to detail, and love for photos :) It’s been such an honor to work with you and I hope you’re enjoying one of my favorite cities in the world — Charleston!
