Being a wedding planner is hands down the greatest job. Bringing a couple’s vision to life is beyond satisfying and leaves our hearts incredibly full. This wedding in particular made our hearts overflow because of the friendship behind it. Tori has been a dear friend who has stayed close even though life has pulled us in different directions. This made for a very special time as we planned with her and her loving family. They are seriously THEE best.
The wedding took place in Midlothian, VA at the Virginia Power Boat Association. The ceremony and reception were right in from of the James River, which made for a beautiful set up. Cocktail hour was a hit; bartenders were slinging drinks left and right, the corn hole boards and giant Janga made it easy for guests to mingle, get acquainted and have a fabulous time.
The reception was held in a tent lined with twinkly lights. The centerpieces staggered with lanterns and candles, which gave off a warm glow that made us want to cuddle up! Their color scheme of burgundy and navy complimented all the decor. There were so many uniques details that tied everything together starting with shoes. Tori, David and the entire bridal party, including the officiant, wore converse. This personal touch reflected the brides personality.
The officiant Brandon Elliott holds a special place in Tori’s life as her college softball coach. Tori is a 3 time All-American and Coach Elliott has been a huge part of her softball achievements so having him officiate was the perfect cherry on top.
The floral arrangements and decor added sentimental value because they were created by all the special ladies in the family. A lot of time, effort and love resulted in the most beautiful florals. Live music was available throughout the day. Starting with a solo singer for the ceremony and then a live band performed during the reception. Having the solo artist and then the live band helped build the energy level high.
So here’s to you, Tori & David! We love y’all and we are so thankful for not only your friendship but for trusting us with your big day<3
