Kristina and Nate

On September 17, 2022 Kristina and Nate were married at the John Marshall Ballrooms in Richmond. I was so honored to be a part of their big day and helping make their wedding dreams come true.

Kristina and Nate are such a sweet, low-key couple. Their wedding was small and intimate. Her sense of style and taste could not be ignored. A gorgeous plated dinner with close family and friends was the perfect way to celebrate! I worked with Kristina and Nate for three months of coordination and got to know her family and a couple. I love how true to her own personal style she stayed throughout the entire process. I was also beyond obsessed with her white leather jacket and full white sequin jumpsuit that she changed into after the ceremony.

After the ceremony there was cocktail hour followed by a delicious plated dinner in the ballroom. Their DJ played upbeat fun music while all the guests talked and socialized together. I love a unique wedding that doesn’t necessarily follow the traditional timeline. They shared an incredibly sweet first dance which was the only dancing of the evening. Guest stayed and chatted, enjoyed drinks and dessert for the remainder of the evening. They had the most delicious cupcakes from Pearl bake shop.

The night concluded with a beautiful sparkler exit down the sidewalk in front of the hotel. They snuck away for their final photos on a parking garage across from the John Marshall Ballrooms sign that illuminates over the Richmond skyline. What a perfect way to end a perfect day!
