Caty + Ryan | A Richmond, VA Wedding

Slightly offbeat. Hilarious. A little eccentric. Crazy sweet. This would be a pretty good place to start when describing my friend Caty from our good ‘ol schooling years. This girl’s laugh was contagious and had me constantly cracking up in the classroom with something silly and always random coming from her lips. When I walked down the hall toward the bridal suite on the day of her wedding, I heard her roaring giggle echo down the corridor, she hadn’t changed a bit. I knew that her wedding would, out of all of my weddings to date, be the one to showcase my bride’s individuality the most. She didn’t disappoint. After telling me she had planned a destination beach wedding and scratched the idea last minute due to headaches and logistics, what she was able to pull off planning from Washington DC for her ‘RVA all the way” celebration was incredible. Our beautiful, little Richmond City was a running theme throughout Caty and Ryan’s big day. The historic Linden Row Inn set the backdrop for her bridal suite and ceremony site, while the first look with Ryan took place on the city’s Capital steps. Havana 59 was the setting for the reception, which sits right in front of 17th St. Farmers Market, where Caty’s dad used to sell produce from the farm he grew up on. We even made time to snap a few shots outside of Main St. Station where Caty and Ryan spent every other weekend for three years trekking back and forth to see one another!  Her personality was everywhere in the details, from the handmade invitations, to her flapper-esque short beaded dress, to the paper mache flamingos that adorned her wedding cake, gah I  just couldn’t get enough! Every step of the way I was reminded of her bright and crazy charisma. Her and Ryan’s love for each other was evident in so many ways. Caty just lights up when she is next to him and Ryan’s understated attentiveness to her was just the sweetest to watch. I had the BEST time capturing these special moments for such a wonderful couple. Enjoy some of my favorites!
