October 13th, 2009

It’s hard to believe it’s been 2 years since Mr. vB and I tied the knot!  It seems just like yesterday!  Here’s a walk down memory lane.

(I apologize in advance for the grainy photos.  I spent longer than I would like to admit scanning them onto my computer.  We had a great photographer, Sarah Hazelgrove, but at the time she did not upload her digital photos.  We only have paper copies.)

flagHere is the vB Family Crest which was a key part in many aspects of our celebration.  We had these custom flags made, as well as used it on our invitations, and Guest Welcome Boxes.

Both of these photos crack me up because Mr.vB and I were SO NERVOUS!!!  I couldn’t even look at the camera.


ceremonyOur Ceremony was held at St. Joseph’s Villa in Richmond, VA.


This is my FAVORITE photo that Sarah took!  It was as we were leaving the Church and headed to the Reception!


Our Reception was held at The Main Street Train Station in Downtown Richmond.

Scan-091012-0014Mr.vB surprised me with these awesome Custom made Converse.  He had them made in our wedding colors and I loved the “Just Married” tag-line.


Introducing for the First time.. Mr. and Mrs. vB!!


Our First dance was to Paul Simon’s Late in the Evening.  We took dance lessons as we really wanted to wow the crowd!

Apparently we didn’t warn the photographer that we were going to do the DEATH DROP at the end of our number.


We had also planned for the wedding party to grab the fake instruments that we had laid out by the dance floor and start dancing around at the end of our First Dance.  If you have ever heard Late in the Evening, you know how perfect it was!







We created a candy bar for our guests instead of handing out favors.  Each guest got a cute little take out box and filled it to their heart’s content.


Mr. vB and I left our fun filled evening with guests lining the front stairs of the station waving sparklers!  It was such a great send off!


Next stop- Little Dix Bay- British Virgin Islands!

    I just had to comment on your beautiful wedding post. I love, love, love your dress! In fact it was what I was looking for, but it was a budget buster for me. I found your blog in the last few days while perusing the internet for blogs about home improvement and decorating. I look forward to seeing more of your DIY projects. :-)

    Hey Joannah- Thanks for the kind words about our wedding post. I actually had my dress custom made after I saw the price tag on the “designer” one. We had it made for about 1/2 the price! It was definitely a process going to the seamstress every other week and watching the dress transform. A little more stressful at times than I thought it would be. In the end I was very pleased, and felt great in it! Hope to see you around our blog again. We have some major projects brewing that I can wait to show off!
