A blush and beaded wedding dress, bridesmaids in shades of blues, rose gold accents, a horse drawn carriage ride? Sunday was a fairytale and I loved every minute of Sophia & Ben’s summer wedding at Maymont!

Sophia told me that it was going to be an intimate wedding with their closest friends and family to celebrate and it didn’t matter if there were less than 50 people there or over 200, these two had a beautiful day and the love between them was so evident at their heartfelt first look and as they exchanged vows in Maymont’s Italian Garden.

The flowers were in full bloom, clouds came to give us some shade from the sun and there wasn’t a drop of rain to be found even though it had dumped buckets just south of their wedding venue! (I’m serious, I’ve been having the best luck with weather this wedding season!!)

I’m so excited to be sharing highlights from this sweet summer Maymont wedding!

Sophia's veil was just one of the heirlooms she had with her on her wedding day. The same veil that belongs to her sweet Momma.

SUCH a gorgeous wedding day! I cannot even deal with how incredibly beautiful their wedding was and the love between these two. It was such an honor to capture these for Ben & Sophia and it was beyond hard narrowing down my favorites for this blog! I know I’ll be oversharing these for awhile 😉 Congrats, Ben & Sophia!
