Jolene & Eric’s Wedding on Sunday, June 28th 2009

We’ve been waiting for this one for awhile.  Jolene and Eric just so happened to get married on my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary so we already knew the day was auspicious.  We’ve known Jolene and Eric ever since our days at Virginia Commonwealth University: Eric may not have known he was a guinea pig at the time but he enrolled in either my first or second (I can’t remember now!) Intro to Photography class his freshman year while Sam had both Jolene and Eric as students in upper level classes as film students.  As you can imagine, it was a true honor to be asked to shoot their wedding day, especially knowing that VCU is where their story began…

Their ceremony took place in the rose garden at Lewis Ginter with a reception in the Robins Center.  The color scheme of fuchsia, orange, pink and sage were reflected in the roses that bloomed at the site of the ceremony.  The gals’ bouquets, infused with sprigs of fresh herbs, smelled amazing.  Courtney and Emily from Merriment made sure all the details were in place.  There were too many great details for me to include in the swatch below so I’m hoping Courtney will blog about everything including the rock ceremony, burlap gift bags for the kids, bright table assignments with pretty name cards, and yes – we definitely noticed the local micro brew from Star Hill known as “The Love” (we are fans).  And while the Macintosh groom’s cake might have had a minor melt down, what computer doesn’t?  And who better to fix a computer problem than Eric?  So I guess it kind of worked.  We especially loved the keyboard parts scattered all over the cake table…

These two are just too great together…

We had no idea but it turns out that noise makers are a real crowd pleaser for the big send off.  They probably aren’t very popular with the neighbors but hey…

Jolene and Eric, from one couple that met at VCU to another, we couldn’t be happier that you found each other and tied the knot.   Thank you for asking us to document your wedding day, we really hope these pictures bring back all the emotion for many years to come.  Here’s a slideshow with our favorites from the day and if you would like to be notified by email when their online gallery is ready for viewing, click here.  Congrats…
