The forecast was not looking good, all week long it was rain, rain and more rain in the forecast. Not that it seemed to worry Meris or Jimmy much and wouldn’t you know? Sunlight poured through windows and doors at the beautiful Grace Covenant Church on Monument Ave, formerly the historic Grace Street Church. The sun stayed with us after the ceremony, giving us a window to take a brief walk up Monument Avenue. I was so glad we could get outside to take some distinctly Richmond photos of this couple, who currently live in Texas but have their own version of history here in RVA.
Then it was off to the Dominion Club for the reception where the lovely blue hues of the bridesmaids dresses and flowers carried into the tablescapes arranged downstairs. Oh, and Meris’ sisters made the hydrangea displays with the votives, how cool is that?
The skies started making threats but the wedding party wasn’t daunted as they made a very fun entrance via golf cart. Almost on cue, guests returned indoors for their first dance and the rain came down.
(nice pan, Sam)
After dinner, quite the dance party commenced among kids and adults alike… including a pretty fierce limbo competition!
I wonder if Jimmy is scheming in this shot, perhaps?
