I feel like this post has been anticipated for so long!!! After over a year of planning and prepping, Caroline and Costa tied the knot last weekend at Quirk Hotel in Richmond, Virginia! I’ve always called Caroline the real-life Barbie doll, and her wedding day was the epitome of vintage Barbie inspiration!! I knew that the big day was going to be breathtakingly beautiful and wonderfully executed, but I couldn’t have anticipated the calm, relaxed demeanor or joyful love that radiated throughout the entire day.
Instead of traditionally getting ready with bridesmaids and groomsmen, Caroline and Costa opted to get ready together on the morning of the wedding. They spent a relaxing morning together in their Quirk Hotel suite sipping champagne, reading letters they wrote to one another and celebrating what special memories the day would hold. It was so relaxed and set the tone for an incredible rest of the day! After an adorable first look, we spent two full hours (a photographers’ dream!!!) capturing portraits in some of my favorite locations at Quirk (including a life-size floral wall by Amanda Veronee – AH!) After that, it was time to head to the ceremony and get MARRIED!
The rest of the day was just as joyful as it was beautiful and I was so honored to be a part of it! Caroline and Costa, I am so thankful to call you both friends and I hope you enjoy some of my favorites! Have an amazing rest of your time in GREECE!
LOVE this shot of Drew’s!!
That fluffy bouquet is what dreams are made of!!
