We were delighted to hear from our friends at The Knot that we had been selected as a 2013 “Top Knot”, one of a select group of vendors recognized each year as providing excellent work and service.   The great thing about this recognition is that it’s voted upon by brides AND other wedding professionals.  So it’s doubly humbling to be recognized in such a manner.

Oh, and if you missed it (even though it’s the post right below this one) check out Jessica and Fox at the VMFA.  Their wedding was picked up by The Knot™ magazine recently.  The link is here.

Thank you to everyone who voted for us and we wish everyone a healthy and successful year.  Enjoy!

So much has been happening in and around Don Mears Photography in the past two months and I cannot believe we’ve taken this long to bring this wedding to the blog.  Jessica and Fox are truly wonderful people with warm families who just happened to throw one of the best parties of the year (I have proof!).  We’re not alone in thinking this was a grand affair, as The Knot™ Magazine gave it a four page spread in one of their recent winter editions.  You can find a link to that spread here.

Now, of course it doesn’t hurt that some of our favorite vendors and one of Richmond’s finest venues were also involved in the evening.  I don’t know if this is a full list, and my apologies to any I may miss, but it’s pretty impressive nonetheless:  McBride Events, White House Flowers, Cakes By Graham, The Attraction Band, Lou Stevens, and Petite Bouchees.  Their work is definitely on display in this collection of images from the day.

This wedding and reception was a testament to the class and style of the couple as well as their fun-loving natures.  Jessica and Fox were the epitome of grace throughout, but then willing leaders of a pretty rowdy bunch of friends and family; definitely check out the couple taking the stage to cheer on the crowd.  I hadn’t seen those kind of tambourine moves out of a groom at any wedding I’ve attended or photographed.  Good work, Fox, and great socks.

All in all, a great party and a beautiful wedding day.  Cheers and enjoy the images.
