What an incredible double header wedding weekend we had. We spent Saturday at the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk and Sunday at the Cousiac Manor up toward Richmond with just enough time in between to charge all our batteries and hit the road.
I had never met Rane and Victoria in person until Sunday. When I walked into the Victoria’s bridal suite I almost fell over with how absolutely stunning she is. She has the most beautiful skin, an ivory white that is like the most perfect cream color! She was sitting in RhaeClare’s makeup chair getting her makeup and hair done. While she was finishing up I introduced myself to her incredible girls. Ali, her sister, who was just as gorgeous as Victoria and the maid of honor. Riley, who was so helpful and a rock-star bridesmaid! Lauren, who was a little burst of sunshine and always greeted me with a smile. Nagee, who is getting married in a month and has a huge dress…and super sweet too. 😉 And Paxton, quiet and absolutely perfect! After I met all the girls I began quickly working on all the bridal details. I loved Victoria’s invitation suite with the cute little barn house drawing! After, I came back in to the bridal suite and Victoria was just finishing up her hair and makeup. She stood up and I almost fell over again. Not only was this girl gorgeous, she had a model figure and model height! Wow, Rane you are one lucky guy.
Victoria was just as sweet as she is beautiful; seriously! She really went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of and that no one was stepping on our toes. I had such a wonderful time spending the day with these girls. They were like one big family and I got to hang out with them on a very special day!
One of my most favorite parts of the day was when Rane and Victoria shared a prayer just before the ceremony. Rane had his eyes tied, but Victoria could see everything. It was so precious standing back watching their excitement and love for each other. I kept hearing Victoria say, “I wish I can kiss you! I wish I can kiss you!” It was precious seeing her love for Rane and seeing Rane’s soft love for his bride! I will never forget that sweet moment!
Wishing this couple an incredible life together and so very honored we got to share this special day with you two! It will be forever engrained in our hearts! So much love! x0x0

This photo couldn’t be anymore perfect!
This is Kathryn, Victoria’s big sister in her sorority who tied a special blue ribbon on Victoria’s ankle. A tradition they have!
Father Daughter First Look with Dad, JP! He didn’t know what was going on at first. I teased him and asked him if he was going to cry and he laughed and said no, but if you want me to I will pretend. Haha!
Here is that amazing prayer time! It was so so so sweet! Glad we got to witness it!
