Rustic Geometric Details and Grandma's Sweater for "Something Blue" for this Fall Wedding

Monday, June 15, 2020 Richmond, Virginia

Like many modern day love stories, Ryan and Reed met online, chatted for weeks, and then decided to meet in "real life" in the ever well-loved Richmond district of Carytown. It wasn't long after until Ryan surprised Reed with an oceanside proposal during a family vacation. Faking a toe cramp while beachcombing for seashells, Ryan knelt down to pop the question while Reed's family held up "Will You Marry Me?" signs in the background.

The two grooms knew they wanted a modern, classic celebration with a rustic twist, so the historic outdoor setting of Seven Springs delivered exactly what they envisioned. With Ryan in a dapper dark rose colored tuxedo and Reed in a timeless white dinner jacket, their style exuded a black tie elegance to the tune of autumn. Their wedding party only made it more stylishly perfect in their gorgeous black dresses and tuxedos!

Sadly, Ryan's grandmother passed away a little over a month before the wedding, and to honor her memory on the wedding day, Reed got in touch with one of Ryan's family members to have a handkerchief made out of one of her favorite blue and white striped sweaters. It became Ryan's "something blue" and a new tradition to pass down on his side of the family.

With wooden geometric centerpieces, acrylic table signage, and vintage leather furniture, Reed and Ryan's simplistic yet elegant reception design reflected their love of small details that come together to make a big impact. While Brittany Lowe Photography captured both the intimacy of their relationship and the prettiest greenery-filled details, the couple simply radiated joy in every photo, and the golden sunset they experienced was the perfect end to a day that started their happily ever after together.
