• Ryan + Kristen

I walked away remembering one specific thing about it. It could be the colors or the theme or the amazing bridal party, etc….. this wedding will forever be remembered as the REEBOK wedding. I could be called “The Perfectly Detailed” wedding as well. Kristen thought about EVERYTHING.  I don’t think I’ve see a wedding SO custom designed! We’re talking custom printed napkins with random facts about the couple and personalized fill-in-the blank save the dates… the list goes on and on! These two really put their heart and soul into planning this wedding and it showed.  Guests were amazed and the amount of thought and preparation that went into their wedding day. However, put all those details

aside, the thing I will never forget about this 9.10.11 wedding are the Reeboks.  Ryan and Kristen ordered custom Reeboks with the R. Holmes and K. Holmes embroidered on the back.  After family formals, they slipped them on and so did their immediate families!! Every had neon yellow and blue reeboks on so that they could dance the night away!! So fun! And they worked! Their parents and siblings never let the dance floor! Their whole day was wonderful, from beginning to end. I remember meeting these two months ago and loving how relaxed and comfortable they were around each other. They look out for one another and their best friends.  I was reminded of that as I watched Ryan keep glancing over at his bride during the ceremony and wiping away her tears.  On a warm September afternoon, with the mountains and sunset in the background, these two promised to be companions for life. I loved being there and celebrating alongside of them.   I also LOVED that their color scheme incorporated TEAL of course!! So enjoy getting to know this lovely couple through their wedding pictures!!!!

Gah!! I’m in love with these shoes!!!

The sun was a little bright but I couldn’t resist! Virginia is a BEAUTIFUL place to get married!

Time to get MARRIED! Beautiful ceremony location wouldn’t you agree?!

Instead of communion or a unity candle, they mixed two different wines as a symbol unity.

Games for the cocktail hour…”Corn Holmes”… cute. They think of everything.


Every place setting had a tag to write wishes on and hanging on the wishing tree at the center of each table!
