Every wedding is special, and unique moments come out in the photographs that speak of the tone of the day. For me, I adore the relationship that Kendall has with her dad, which definitely shines through in the photos. From his surprised look to see Kendall in her dress for the first time to lovingly turning his daughter over to Bradford at the end of the aisle, there are so many special moments!
There are also so many ideas in this Richmond wedding. The trolley, the bridesmaids’ dresses in the same color yet different styles, tiny photographs hanging from Kendall’s bouquet and so much more! I hope that you enjoy this lovely affair in hues of fuchsia and pink photographed by Rebecca Keeling Studios.
Here is a little insight from Kendall, “We met in the early Spring of 2004 while in the Outer Banks in Duck, North Carolina. We were introduced through mutual friends. We were all vacationing during our high school spring break with our families and spent a lot of time together and starting dating by the end of May that spring!
Bradford and I decided to head down to Kitty Hawk, NC to his family’s vacation home to celebrate Easter weekend with everyone. My family was staying up the street in Kill Devil Hills, NC at my aunt & uncles’s house. Late Saturday night, Bradford had mentioned that we should get up early and go for a walk on the beach. So we got up early, Easter Sunday and we went down to the beach and we walked, and walked, and walked. It didn’t seem that he knew where we were going but eventually we ended up stopping to enjoy the view and the weather. Once we stopped, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! If there’s one word to describe me, it would be emotional, so as you can imagine, I was speechless. It took a little while for me generate any form of communication but I think I finally was able to give him a ‘yes’. After the walk, we went back to Bradford’s family house to find that my family and his family were ready to celebrate and hear all the details. I later found out that I was the only one (including some of my friends) that was oblivious to the whole set up, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way!
When I started to plan the wedding, I knew that my girly side was going to come out in full effect. With that being said, I choose to have fuchsia colored cocktail dresses as the bridesmaid dresses because when it comes down to it, I love the color pink. They had bouquets that consisted of ferns, white peonies and white calla lilies that matched my bouquet of blush peonies, white calla lilies surrounded by fern, very girly and exactly what I had envisioned. The overall theme and feel of the wedding was laid back, fun but also traditional from riding the old Richmond Trolley from the ceremony to the reception to serving grilled pita pizzas out on the country club patio.”
