Modern Rustic Richmond Wedding

On the day it became legal to marry in Virginia, Dan surprised Jim. Home from work that day, Dan was about to take the dog for a walk while Jim was prepping for his work out. In a spur of the moment, Dan came upstairs and said, "Can I ask you a question?" Knowing he wanted to propose, Dan had stopped by a shop on the way home and picked up the only thing he could think off in the spur of the moment: one good ole iconic Ring Pop. Sweet and oh so perfect, what the Ring Pop symbolized would would soon show up again on the actual wedding day.

Dreaming of a modern rustic aesthetic, these two lovebirds infused much of their personalities into their special with help of their incredible wedding dream team led by LK Events and Design. From galvanized floral vessels to chic navy blue linens and stationery to sweet local references, David Abel Photography and Michael Simon Photography captured it all at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden.

But to pay homage to their very first meeting at Barksdale Theatre and their very well-versed theatre background, their grand ceremony entrance to the Broadway comedic tune of Annie Get Your Gun's "An Old Fashioned Wedding" sung by the two grooms themselves is the real heart-squeezer and smile maker! Friends, you'll totally have to check out the video on OutRVA!
