For Brides

I couldn’t think of a better couple to be the first MJMP Wedding of 2021! Nadine and Josh shared vows, laughter, joy and fun at their beautiful spring wedding at Amber Grove in Moseley, Virginia. The day started with on and off rain and shortly after arriving at Amber Grove, it started pouring cats and dogs! But to my surprise and delight, the rain stopped just before we started wedding party portraits outside and stayed away the rest of the day so they were still able to have their ceremony outdoors, under a tree with hanging lanterns.

This couple is one of the sweetest I’ve had the pleasure to ever work with and not going to lie, I’m almost a little bummed out the wedding is over because I loved getting to work with these two! But what a wedding day it was and what a beautiful love between these two.

Nadine and Josh met at Virginia Tech and began dating, even doing a long distance stint while Josh was living in Las Vegas for a time! Josh proposed to Nadine during a little getaway to Charlottesville while on a hike and they celebrated after by visiting a vineyard and enjoying the weekend!

Their wedding was beautiful, full of shades of blue, lots of fresh florals and greenery throughout (basically a dream!) and these two had the best wedding party I could ask for! I spent the whole day laughing, obsessing over how incredible Nadine looked in her dress and loving all the details.

I have so many favorites from their wedding day and I didn’t try to hold it back on this blog post! So enjoy my favorites from their beautiful spring wedding day at Amber Grove!
