Ever since I photographed my first Patrick Henry wedding last year, I secretly dreamed about photographing another wedding there one day. When Hoa contacted me about her wedding, I couldn’t have been more excited. She picked some of the best wedding industry vendors for her big day and I was beyond excited to work with them.
Vicki Itson with Simplicity Event & Wedding Planning made sure that Hoa and James’ wedding day ran flawlessly from beginning to end. Mary Jo from Gloriosa created the most spectacular bridal bouquets that were simply a dream to photograph. Pumpernickel Pickle served the most delicious food. Sarah from Fresh Baked Bakery created an outstanding dessert table. And, just as a side note, she also made the best macaroons I have ever tasted!
Since James’ first degree was in aviation, airplane bottle openers as party favors were a no brainer. He also proposed to Hoa on a small flight to the Greenbrier. So everything fit together seamlessly.
My photographer heart skipped a beat when I saw this gorgeous Mrs. Box.
How gorgeous is Hoa’s bouquet?! Gloriosa outdid themselves with this beautiful fall bridal bouquet.
Who knew that a flip phone could take selfies?! At least they tried. Haha!
These gorgeous bridesmaids dresses and bouquets were such a dream to photograph!
Oh my goodness, Hoa!! You made such a stunning bride! Your wedding dress was simply amazing!!
I definitely had some serious competition taking pictures. This little guy was one of the cutest wedding guests I’ve ever seen!
This Patrick Henry wedding was such a dream!
Hoa and James, thank you so much for having me photograph your Patrick Henry wedding! I had a blast celebrating with you.
Many thanks to the amazing team of vendors who made this day possible!
