MEET MONICA

Personal

For Brides

They got married where they met, at their church at Epiphany Lutheran. The day was perfect with scorching heat following the days after the wedding and rain days before but the weather was perfect and so was the wedding day.

I got to know Marine and Matt through Marine’s cousin, Alexa who I worked alongside of for a couple weddings since she’s the incredible videographer at Little Fox Films. When I got the inquiry from Marine, I already knew it was going to be amazing and it definitely was.

From their Belle Isle engagement session last fall to today’s wedding, every step of the way was a dream working together and I loved their wedding day!

Marine and Matt shared a sweet first look outside and they were so lighthearted, so relaxed and so fun together. Their ease with each other and close friendship that they built together was amazing to be around and just witness how much they love each other and really truly are best friends. (When your soulmate is also your absolute best friend, you know it’s great)

After they officially shared their vows and got married at their church, we headed to the Science Museum of Virginia in the heart of Richmond for their wedding reception!

I’d been there before as a visitor with my children and wondered how a reception would work in the atrium of the museum but it was insanely gorgeous and such a unique wedding venue in Richmond VA. We enjoyed some gorgeous golden hour portraits outside and a fun reception inside. I think one of my favorite shots was from upstairs under the colored lights, head down to check it out and my other favorites from their fun wedding day at the Science Museum of Virginia!
