Ariel + Eric | Historic Polegreen Church Wedding
Richmond, VA Wedding | Historic Polegreen Church
Ariel and Eric were married on a chilly November day under the beautiful Fall leaves at Historic Polegreen church in Mechanicsville, VA and had an elegant reception at Quirk Hotel in Richmond. I loved working with such an adventurous couple! Ariel and Eric are world travelers and have been to so many cool places! During their engagement session several months earlier, they told me about how they got engaged at the Interlaken in Switzerland!! They have also been to Japan and several other places and love to hike with their dog! I knew with our shared sense of adventure, we were going to get along great!
Ariel looked like a princess on her wedding day in her Morilee wedding gown! Her step-father walked her through the tunnel of fall leaves to the aisle where her father lead her down to the altar to meet Eric. It was so magical to see with the sun setting in the background and the leaves falling softly all around them. Their ceremony was beautiful and the chilly air really didn’t seem to matter with all of the excitement!
After the ceremony, we headed over to Quirk Hotel’s rooftop for some gorgeous night skyline portraits before Ariel and Eric were introduced for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. into their reception. They had the most amazing ballroom style first dance together followed by Ariel and her dad’s father/daughter dance. I just have to say how blown away I was with the dances that they planned! It was so much fun to watch as Ariel’s dad lead her around the dance floor, spinning and even lifting her as everyone cheered them on!
The rest of the evening went on without a hitch with lots of fun dancing, an adorable cutting of the cake by the bride and groom and a gorgeous sparkler send off! It was such a joy and an honor to work with such a fun and amazing couple as Ariel and Eric! Enjoy some of my favorite photos from their wedding!
A special thanks to the amazing vendors!
