• Darrell + Meredith

You just met these two a few weeks ago! Darrell and Meredith live in Atlanta but celebrated their wedding day in Meredith’s hometown… Richmond! It was such a classic, elegant richmond wedding! The Jefferson Hotel didn’t disappoint and the weather was perfect! I’m starting to love April weddings just as much as I love october weddings!! Darrell and Meredith are an incredible pair. As we rode the bus downtown for portraits, I was chatting with Meredith’s older sister and I told her how much I loved these two. She explained that she had known Darrell was the one for her sister a LONG time ago. She said “You know, when two people are meant to be together, it’s so obvious. He brings out the absolute best in her.” Well, Michael and I were only with Darrell and Meredith for a little over 8 hours and we were able to see that ring true. These two are soul mates, best friends and now husband and wife!!

Their love for one another was so evident in their vows, their first look, and every other interaction on their wedding day.

As we walked towards Darrell and Michael for the first look, Meredith got a little teary eyed because after all, this was a big moment! I asked if Darrell was a crier and she gave me a definite “YES!”.  She was right. The tears showed up before he even took his first glance at his bride. Michael said that Darrell’s groomsmen referred to the “First Look” as the “GRAND REVEAL”…. and it was just that.  It was wonderful. I can’t wait to see the video from Josh Gooden!!

So enough of my ramblings, let me show you Darrell and Meredith’s day through my perspective!! Mr. and Mrs. Sutton, I can’t thank you enough for allowing Michael and I to be a part of your wedding day. What an HONOR!! Thank you for welcoming us with open arms and inviting us to be a part of this amazing celebration! Enjoy your images AND St. Lucia!!!
