Spiritual Charles City Outdoor Wedding

With a strong mutual spiritual awareness, Julie surprised Mary Beth with a proposal through a tarot card reading-- a symbolic detail that would carry over into their wedding day favors.

Their whole meeting, falling in love, growing together, and deciding to get married seemed like fate. As if written in the stars, Mary Beth entered a drawing for a fully complimentary wedding at Virginia PrideFest in Richmond... and the winning prize included services by local wedding pros, Tiltawhirl Imagery, Cary Hill 1741, Cherry Blossom Weddings, and Just Married by Christina. Later that day, soon after leaving PrideFest, Mary Beth called Julie in much excitement, screaming, "Honey, we won... WE WON!"

The sprinkles on top of this kismet sundae though was when less than a week later, the ban on gay marriage in Virginia was lifted. If all of that doesn't confirm some major destiny for these two lovebirds, then we don't know what does!

Through the love and support of their daughters, family, and friends, Julie and Mary Beth were surrounded by blessings all wedding day long as they started their happily ever after journey together.
