The Jones-Smith Wedding

Once upon a time.. there was a beautiful princess and unbeknownst to her, a superhero was awaiting to end their love story with a happily ever after. I was so honored to be a part of this fairytale because it truly was just that, a fairytale. Chauncey and BaShaun are truly a perfect match for each other and BaShaun's obsession with Batman really brought an interesting twist on the classic 'royal wedding'. 

The scene is set at the legendary Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, VA. Tall cathedral ceilings tower a classically designed rotunda where friends and family gathered in preparation of "I Do". Chauncey and BaShaun both have an excellent eye for detail and left nothing without their personal touches. The softest pastel pink's accompany a venetian gold to create an elegant, classy, and royal affair. 

Chauncey & BaShaun: Your wedding was the epitome of perfection. I am head over heels with the decor, the personal elements, and of course, you two. As a couple, you radiate the chemistry that clearly was the reason you two fell in love to begin with. Affectionate, fun, and adventurous doesn't even do you fair justice. I wish you two the best of luck in your future and I cannot thank you enough for letting me be such a big part of your love story.

To Amanda of Amanda Dorian Photography: Thank you SO much for assisting me for the day! Your work brought a whole new perspective to the day and I could not have captured some of these moments without you. Your expertise and eye for an excellent shot far surpasses anything on my level and I will forever owe you for lending me your knowledge that day!
