What better way to announce the launch of the Richmond wedding guide (run over and meet EAD’s two wonderful Richmond brides-to-be, Meredith, and Rachel – their first posts were just published!) than with a stunning Richmond wedding from one of my favorite ladies, Courtney from Merriment Events!Â Courtney is not only a wonderful person who I’m proud to call a friend, but also an incredibly talented event planner and stylist.Â Â Natalie and Lincoln’s beautiful wedding featured shimmery, elegant, silver and gray details.Â All of the lovely images are by Jennifer Colina Photography.
Bridesmaids wore J Crew Blakely dresses, in aluminum, and carried beautiful, fluffy garden bouquets created by Flower Girls.
Lincoln is a musician, so Courtney handmade these beautiful paper flowers from sheet music to decorate the walls of their reception at Crittenden Studio.Â I love this unique, personal element!
