Neon Signs, Nerdy Chic Inspired Cocktails, and Vintage Modern Style at this Fall Wedding

Monday, September 14, 2020 Richmond, VA, USA

When two best friends introduced their two best friends over a Labor Day weekend shindig, sparks immediately flew between Allison and Andrew and only grew as they spent time together. It would be the best moment they had until it came time to plan their early fall wedding day at The Valentine Museum in Richmond, Virginia.

Originally being from California, Allison wanted to make sure her Mom could be with her as she searched for the perfect wedding dress, so two months after Andrew's proposal, Mom was in Virginia, and they eventually found themselves standing in front of a mirror with Allison's dream gown of blush pink, tiers of voluminous ruffles, and a lace bodice with sweetheart neckline. This bride knew it would be perfect when she paired it with black leather jackets she'd wear with her bridesmaids and the unique golden shoulder chain necklace delicately draping across her collar area.

For Andrew's ensemble, he sought vintage-inspired green and grey wing tip shoes and a fun Virginia-inspired necktie designed with truly Virginian symbols to represent Old Dominion. (Can we talk about the cute little peanuts, cardinals, and Chesapeake Bay crabs?!) With bridesmaids in black dresses and groomsmen in gray, you knew that this couple's wedding style would be on point for a vintage modern celebration!

With a romantic neon sign hanging from a copper frame for their dessert table, Richmond-inspired table names, and the bride's gorgeous 3D nail designs, everything was a visual dream captured by Awesomesauce Photography. As fans of Harry Potter, David Bowie, and video games, Andrew and Allison's signature cocktails even were personalized to pay homage to their favorites. You can't help but smile at all of this loveliness!
