{Real Wedding} Kirsten & Russell

Welcome Jodi and Kurt a husband and wife photography team based out of Virginia with an absolutely stunning wedding! Kirsten & Russell planned for their wedding to have personal, historic, and traditional elements, all of which came together so beautifully and cohesively. The ceremony was held at Wren Chapel of their alma mater, William and Mary, in historic Williamsburg. Since they are both members of the Army they exited the ceremony with a traditional saber arch. Their color scheme of soft and muted tones worked elegantly with the pearls, cameos, and traditional calligraphy combined well with the pops of color in the flower bouquets. Their reception took place at Ford’s Colony and was styled with plenty of antique elements and gorgeous florals provided by Janie MedleyRussell is a part of the 101st Army airborne division and one of their traits that is still retained in their dress uniform is a pair of rugged boots. Another fabulous detail - Kirsten and her mom collected all of their china! Her mom started up a business, Decorous Dishes, renting eclectic wedding china. Thank you Jodi Miller for sharing this breathtaking wedding!
