The JMU Wedding | Virginia Crossings

  • TJ + Meredith

Wedding Season has officially begun! And what better way to start than with TJ and Meredith!!! You may remember their fall engagement session at JMU… there was a TON of Purple and Yellow going on… and their wedding wasn’t any different!

From the guestbook to the garter, I think it’s safe to say that TJ and Meredith LOVE their school!! It feels like we were JUST walking about campus talking about this day. Meredith emailed me over a year before their wedding date and we set up a meeting time… with the WHOLE family! I loved meeting her parents
