Garden Elegance with Mom at Her Side

With Mother's Day coming up, we're extra sentimental to the typically unseen VIPs for weddings right now. For Heather, it was so important to have her Mom with her for her bridal session at Maymont in Richmond. Ooos and awws were aplenty as Mom watched her beautiful daughter become a bride as they walked around the estate with Christina Forbes Photography. And heck, Mom was even an expert veil flipper when they needed some fabric movement!

For her special day, Heather chose a lovely lace wedding gown with modern cap sleeves, illusion bateau neckline, and a statement back of buttons and embroidery... all made more bridal perfect with a gossamer cathedral length veil that was meant for elegant stairways and old world iron gazebos at their location! We love everything about this bridal session. You can't help but smile at Heather's infectious laughs, hand-tied peonies and roses, and the knowledge that this bride had her personal cheerleader there to support her in the next chapter of her life.
