Jenny and Greg - A Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens Wedding
When Jenny, Greg, and I met over coffee to talk about their wedding at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, I knew right away that we "clicked." If I hadn't been sure from the start, I would have been when an hour flew by and we'd spent about 5% of that time actually talking about the wedding. Those are the best consultations, when you get along as people first, when you can see yourselves just being friends enjoying drinks together. Those aren't just the best consultations, they're the best couples who make for the best WEDDINGS.
When I arrived at the Bloemendaal House, my FAVORITE section of Lewis Ginter, I found Greg walking around the patio chatting with his groomsmen, family members, vendors, everyone. I could tell how happy he was, that this was just going to be the best day ever for this couple. When I went upstairs, it was exactly the same. Girls running from room to room, giddy with anticipation. Jenny trying to take care of everyone and everyone telling her that it was definitely supposed to be the other way around.
The wedding itself was beautiful of course. I don't think a wedding at Lewis Ginter could NOT be beautiful. It could be pouring rain and it would still be one of the most gorgeous spots in Richmond. But Jenny and Greg made the day extra special with their complete and utter joy in marrying each other. I just love that. Tears of happiness and nervous laughter, those are the most incredible things to witness. My business cards say I shoot weddings for bright and joyful people because it's that joy that I love the most. Jenny and Greg, I hope you keep that joy alive for the rest of your lives together. You have something very special. Cherish it always!
I hope you both enjoy reliving your special day every time you look at these photos.
Greg's sister used to bake cakes professionally but has since left that profession. She promised that she would make his wedding cake and HOLY MOLY what a stunner. I think she wanted to go out with a bang ;)
