Elegant Plum Wedding Inspiration at Riverside Center Tigre + Josh | Fredericksburg, VA


Ohhhh Tigre and Josh’s wedding was so much fun for SO many reasons! Last year, I photographed Josh’s twin bother’s wedding day (Caleb and Anna!!!) and their mom was my accountant for over a year!! When I arrived at the bridal suite on Tigre and Josh’s wedding day last weekend, it was SO fun to see so many familiar faces. It was a grey, rainy September day but that wasn’t putting a damper on ANYONE’S mood 🙂 It was joy-filled from moment one!!

These two met their freshman year of college at George Mason through a mutual friend. But, they didn’t start dating until late summer of 2015…which also happens to be right before Josh left for a 10-month deployment for the Army. Craziness!!  And talk about building a strong foundation for marriage! These two have been though so much as a couple already and their bond is so strong. They both have so much love for the Lord and respect for each other…it’s an amazing thing to witness (and photograph)!

Also, such a random and funny side note: these two tied the knot at a beautiful local church and hosted their reception at Riverside Center. It doubles as a dinner theatre where I used to perform as a kid!!! It was so nostalgic to be shooting there 🙂

Enjoy some of my favorites from Josh and Tigre’s beautiful wedding day! Tigre and Josh: I hope you are having the most AMAZING time on your honeymoon! XOXOXO!
