A Sneak Peak

Lucas and Taylor’s: A Beautiful Shirley Plantation Wedding

Shirley Plantation, Charles City, VATaylor and Lucas had perfect weather for a perfect wedding. Everyone enjoyed being at Shirley Plantation. The venue offers a lot of variety including places for both the groomsmen and bridesmaid to get ready.

Upon arriving to the venue, Taylor exited her town car smiling from ear to ear.  I don’t think she stopped smiling all day.  And why would she, she was marrying the perfect guy.

Weddings are all about meaning. And in this photograph we have a beautiful meaning of what memories are important to remember.

We took a lot of wedding ring shots for Taylor and Lucas but couldn’t get over how fitting and awesome these ring boxes were. These are wedding keepsakes for sure.
