We’ve known for a while that Lisa and Mike had the chance of popping up on Style Me Pretty, so we had to hold back their wedding until we heard the word.  Well, the day is finally here and we’re so happy to share their wedding with you.   We’re not ones who thinks that the details of the day should overshadow the real moments, but it was pretty hard not to notice all the well planned and elegant choices throughout the event.   And it was such a beautiful and very Richmond type of day, as well.  The getting ready at the Jefferson led to St. John’s at Stuart Circle with a wonderful finish in the new wing of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

The link to the Style Me Pretty Article is here:

You can’t argue with a line like ” Don Mears Photography used every trick in his back pocket and has filled a gallery with the most amazing wedding you’ll see all day.”

Special thanks to McBride Events, Floraculture, Mike Beane of Choice Entertainment, The Jeff Decker Band, The Buttercream Bee, Emily Hudspeth, and Paper Freckles for their always wonderful efforts in making the day for Lisa and Mike a success.

As we gear up for another fantastic wedding season, it’s nice to get things rolling with a little love from our fellow wedding professionals.  Claire Goodman from One Sweet Wedding and The Charlottesville Wedding blog was nice enough to let us know she’d published a few choice images in their “Best of 2012” series.

We’d be thrilled if you headed over there to check it out and leave a few comments about the work.  Here’s the link:


Thank you to Allison and Nick, Liz and Michael, Samantha and Duncan, Karen and Mike, Sarah and T.J., Jenny and Bruce,  Jessica and Fox, and Jane and Andrew.  These are the wonderful couples that made these images possible.  You see, it’s impossible to get featured in anything unless you get invited to the wedding first!  Here is a collection of single frames from each of these weddings that were also our favorites of 2012.
