Katherine and Mark~ Married

posted by Kelly

I would have swore a few weeks ago that we were headlong into July. It was 95 degrees with a heat index of 100 degrees. Virginia humidity was kicking…how can it be June and yet acting like July? We were all in it together because we were committed to having the best day celebrating the union of Katherine and Mark.

Last fall we met up with these two lovebirds for a super fun engagement shoot at Shockoe Slip in Richmond. After gorging ourselves on pizza we got to hear the story of these academically driven folks. Both graduates of Harvard they are now currently futhering their education, Katherine at UVA Law and Mark at VCU School of Dentistry. Although I know they could kick my butt academically, they are two of the most humble, unassuming people. Supremely down to earth, kind and sincere; we couldn’t wait to meet back up with them, this time, to photograph their wedding.

The Mill at Fine Creek played host to their elegant, summer affair. We were especially pleased to work with our friend and very talented floral designer, Janie Medley. You may know her more commonly by her extremely popular wedding planning blog, The Brides Cafe

The handsome groom. I loved Mark’s engraved cufflinks with each of their initials.

We decided to take advantage of the creek, not only because Mark was dying in his black tux…but this preggo needed to cool down as well. The water was perfection on our hot feet.

There was a lot of razzing of Mark in which he vehemently defended his honor.

Guys, we hope Mexico provided ample rest and relaxation as you both have worked so hard in graduate school this year and planning your beautiful wedding. We had a wonderful time. Your bridal party was so much fun and so incredibly warm and friendly. We hope these pictures remind you of how beautiful your day was and not how insanely hot it was! Blessings as you begin your marriage.
