When Two Teachers Get Married Next to a Peach Orchard

Monday, August 12, 2019 Richmond, Virginia

Meredith and Addison first met when they were both summer camp counselors, and it was an instant connection that transformed into more. Being both classroom teachers, when it came time to pop the big question, Meredith knew that adding a little homage to Thomas Jefferson would thrill Addison, a huge Hamilton musical fan. So the Jefferson Vineyards in Charlottesville were the catalyst to planning a romantic fall wedding, and the rest was history!

When we saw that the Hanover Peach Orchard was the couple's chosen ceremony backdrop and Meredith's dad's backyard for the reception, we couldn’t help but love this day from the very first moment! Joy-filled portraits among the trees and moody fall colors in their florals made this cranberry-hued rustic wedding perfectly dreamy. Meredith's signature bow tie, leather suspenders, and math-themed Pi symbol cuff links (ideal accessories for any teacher!) complemented Addison's creamy lace dress beautifully, especially with her wildly moody crimson bouquet.

Food was important to these two lovebirds to share with their guests, and that came across in the stationed reception menu, peach jam wedding favors, tiered funfetti wedding cake, and even a tower of yummy beignets that represented Meredith's Louisiana State University alma mater. To incorporate her elementary students, Addison's adorable classroom kids all wrote notes about what love is to them, and these were displayed in a sweet photo montage during the celebration.

All of their smiles and good vibes can be felt by these captures by Ch & Sh Fredericks Photography along with this couple's advice for other engaged sweethearts: "At the end of the day, if you're marrying your favorite person, your wedding will be perfect!"
