Kristi+Michael | Married | Washington & Lee University, Lexington Va.

Kristi, Michael and I had so many crazy connections, it almost seems as though the universe were conspiring to bring us together. My sweet husband David accompanied my very pregnant self to this wedding to help carry gear, and between the two of us, we had four universities in common. But as I got to know these two over the course of their planning, rehearsal and wedding day, Kristi being a Tarheel was only the tip of the iceberg for what made this wedding so wonderful to photograph.

Though their mostly Floridian guestlist may have been struggling with the cold and wind of an early Spring day in Lexington, it was all warmth and love between these two. And the personal touches throughout the day were so incredibly meaningful. Kristi’s mother made both the cathedral length veil for the ceremony and the shorter reception blusher, as well as her blinged out belt and Michael’s bow-tie and vest and the groomsmens’ ties. Not to limit the talent to one side, Michael made his own wedding ring of maple burl! And for this crew loving couple and their friends and family, an exit under custom oars was the perfect end to the night.

Just looking at all the amazing color from this wedding makes me happy! I love shooting events at W&L and seeing how every couple makes the space their own.
