Up until the day of their wedding, they were predicting storms, so we were prepared with umbrellas… but luckily the only rain we saw came during the ceremony where everyone was dry and comfortable in the stunning Cathedral of the Sacred Heart. After a few portraits, we hopped on the trolley for a mini tour of Richmond, stopped by Charm School for some photos in front one of the best Richmond murals, and then headed to Libby Hill Park where Monica got the BEST surprise from Lee- an appearance from their best friend, Cash.
After a photo break with King of Pops, we were dropped off at the Omni, where the reception space was beautifully decorated and where their friends and family were waiting to celebrate… also where Erick of My Fellow DJ (a club DJ turned wedding DJ) won us over with the Wu Tang instrumental that kicked off dinner. The rest of the night was a mixture of sentimental toasts, traditional dancing, slow motion photo booth modeling (check that out here!), and an all out dance party.
Lee and Monica, thanks for having us along for the ride- we loved capturing your day!
