This was my first time photographing a Foxchase Manor wedding and I absolutely loved it! Natasha and Winning couldn’t have picked a more gorgeous venue for their wedding. The couple planned a modern, glam wedding with some geometric accents and lots of white and rose gold. They also used hints of burgundy for the bridesmaids’ dresses and bouquets. It was such a fun color palette to photograph!
Natasha and Winning met 5 years ago through a mutual friend while she as in college in Richmond, Va. Fast forward four years, they got engaged while visiting Natasha’s sister in Jacksonville, FL after an anniversary Disney World trip.
“We were on a trip to Disney World and I was really hoping for a proposal. I was suspicious of every move he made. The trip came to an end and we headed to my sister’s house nearby to visit her and her family. I was a little annoyed at this point, although I tried not to show it. Little did I know, he had planned a Disney World proposal, but there was a mix up with the delivery of the ring.
My sister had to go pick it up and he only got it about two hours before he proposed. Later, we went to dinner at a seafood restaurant on the beach with my sister, her mother-in-law, and my niece. Then, he led me on to the beach where I started to get confused and suspicious. When I saw my family had stopped walking and we were by ourselves, I knew what was happening. He got down on one knee and proposed!”
Aren’t beach proposals simply the best?! That was so incredibly sweet! Way to go, Winning!
THE FOXCHASE MANOR WEDDING
Natasha put so much thought into planning her beautiful Foxchase Manor wedding! She is extremely hands on and creative, and loves DIY-ing things. Not only did she make all the table numbers, signs, invitations, photo booth backdrop, flower stands, programs, guest book, and cookie favors, but she also baked her own wedding cake! Yes, you read that right! She’s the talented baker behind The Rolling Pin. How fun is that?!
When I asked Winning when he knew Natasha was the one, he replied: “When she baked me a University of Tennessee Vols birthday cake just before we started dating.”
I mean… could you even expect a better answer?!
Without further adieu, here are their beautiful wedding photos!
“Working with Alina was wonderful from the moment I inquired about her services. She answered all of my many, many questions with thorough and knowledgeable answers and made me completely at ease throughout the planning process. Alina is one of the few vendors I didn’t have to follow up with on every little thing, she was so on top of every detail! On the actual wedding day, things couldn’t have gone any smoother thanks to Alina. She kept us on time and made sure I got every shot I requested. The pictures are beyond beautiful and I would recommend her a thousand times over! Thanks Alina!!” -Natasha
