As a lover of all things clean and classic (read: my ode to white wedding details), these Commonwealth Club nuptials speak straight to my heart. Think pomp and circumstance, ballgowns and bowties, and one pint-sized bridal party soooo cute I’ve turned into a big pile of wedding blogger mush. It’s all from the lens of Marta Locklear and you can have a peek at Shaking Hands’ film waiting down below.
From Marta Locklear… Amanda & Thomas’ wedding was as classic as they come. Starting at the ever elegant Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, Va and then to the picturesque St. Stephens Episcopal Church. After the ceremony we were greeted at the Commonwealth Club of Richmond by a Sinatra-esque lounge singer for cocktails. Then the ballroom doors were opened and white gloved waiters swirled around the room that was filled with crystal, lush pink and white peony arrangements and a full retro lounge style band.
Amanda and Thomas shocked us all with a very animated dance entry for their grand entrance and then whirled into a romantic slow song. It was apparent all night that they were madly in love and surrounded by friends and family.
