Weddings at the art gallery tend to lean a little closer to the modern side of the romance spectrum, so when a wedding that leans the other way, with just the right amount of vintage to pop against the clean museum vibe comes along, we swoon. It’s the little surprises that get us. The unexpected juxtaposition of a lace veil and the contemporary white walls. The classic chiavari chair in lucite. The extra fluffy, pink bouquets set against a grey backdrop. Don Mears Photography used every trick in his back pocket and has filled a gallery with the most amazing wedding you’ll see all day.

From the sweet couple … We met through friends of friends and all things considered should never have met. Lisa thought Mike was not even interested in talking to her but he just couldn’t hear what she was saying at the bar. Mike must have been interested because he made sure Lisa had his card at the end of the evening after offering to walk her to the subway. We fell in love enjoying the same things including new restaurants, cocktails, exploring the city we love and people watching. We got married because we couldn’t imagine ever not being together and didn’t want to be parted.
We wanted our wedding day to be memorable, unique, and a good time for all of our friends and relatives who travelled to attend since so few of the guests were from Richmond.
The venue’s were important to the mood we wanted our guests to take away from the wedding. The food was also important to our big day; we wanted to make sure everyone was full of delicious food! Most importantly, we wanted everyone to have fun!
