Winter Intimate Wedding in Richmond, VA

A chilly Wednesday afternoon, charcuterie board galore, an intimate fireside ceremony, and family dinner at The Quirk- just a few of my favorite thingssss!

It is no secret that intimate weddings and elopements are the bread and butter of what I do. I always say that I love all weddings, big or small, but an intimate wedding just has my heart! These two reached out to me with just weeks to go until their wedding held at the brides parent’s home. They had spent little to no time planning because they were so ready to get married- and it was absolutely perfect. No fuss. Less than 15 guests meant they allowed room for only the most important people in their lives. Well, people and dogs. Rachel has the cutest dog that attended the ceremony SO well behaved. I could have taken sweet Cooper home with me (shocking)!

Their day was so easy. When I arrived, Rachel & her mom welcomed me graciously into their home so I could document getting ready. After a few details shots and some portraits, we moved on to the first look. Arguably one of my favorite parts of every wedding day- highly recommend!

Instead of playing music and walking down the aisle in a traditional way, Rachel and Trevor chose to walk in together, side by side. I really loved that. This is why intimate weddings are just the dopest- you can do it however the heck you want.

After a quick ceremony and family portraits, their parents toasted and guests enjoyed “cocktail hour”. We stepped out for some chilly golden hour portraits before dinner. From there we headed to The Quirk where they shared a private first dance in the courtyard, followed by a family dinner overlooking the lobby. Absolute perfection.

This intimate wedding could have been a model for all others! Thanks to Rachel, Trevor, & their lovely families for pulling together a beautiful day, and The Quirk for hosting dinner.
