Christina and William’s wedding brought us to neighboring campuses in Lexington, Virginia: Christina met William while attending Washington & Lee while he was studying at the Virginia Military Institute just down the street. The rehearsal dinner the night before took place on VMI’s campus while the ceremony at the historic Lee Chapel and the reception in Evans Hall occurred on Washington & Lee’s campus… a perfect merger.
We were happy to find leaves on the trees and covering the ground, lending the warm and inviting colors of fall. The bridesmaids wore jewelry that Christina made herself matching the gold accents in the ladies’ bouquets.
Their wedding was full of personal touches that helped tell the couple’s story, the evening toasts tied it all together. Christina made trombone cake toppers to represent their meeting: both of them play the trombone and met in a band class. Christina and William’s first date took place at Sweet Things, a local ice creamery who served up a delicious sundae bar to accompany the cake (remember their engagement session?).
We have had a great time working with both Christina and William over the past year, we hope that they are enjoying their honeymoon and wish them a great time at their second reception over Thanksgiving Day weekend. Here’s a slideshow with our favorites from the day and if you would like to receive an email when their online gallery is available, click here. A post with Christina’s bridals is soon to follow…
