DAVID & ANDREA || A Joy-Filled Wedding Day Celebration - Richmond, Virginia


Over eight years of saying yes to each other
and now, choosing each other over and over again will continue on.
Forever and Always, as you say.

What a beautiful, beautiful thing.

David & Andrea, your wedding day has a reputation: joy-filled.
Contagiously so.

Cultures & families coming together, moments & traditions built on lasting Faith, and then the whole element of dancing like there's no tomorrow...it bears repeating: Your wedding = joy-filled. Congratulations!

"I am my beloved's
and he is mine..." Sgs 6:3

Yes, tears filled everyone's eyes...

Dear Richmond, Virginia - stoppit.

A Mariachi Band + "Crazy Hour" (guests wear costumes/masks) = Party

David & Andrea ---
From proposal to wedding day, you two have been nothing but a breath of fresh air! I can't believe that we've journeyed together through all the "phases," - my heart is filled with nothing but gratitude. You love each other so well. Throughout this entire process, I watched you put the other person first in such a way that when I'd hang up from a call with you and often say, "wow." Thank you for trusting me with your love story and your biggest moments yet.

Truly, you are creating a legacy worth sharing. Congratulations on the Mr & Mrs status! The best is here, and yet to come! Love you!!
--Tara (and Stephen)
