Casey & Joe - A true Richmond wedding

Casey and Joe were the coolest couple. I love when a couple becomes friends with all of their vendors - it just makes the whole night click. When you are hunting for your vendors, take a page out of their book and choose people who you trust and, equally importantly, enjoy.

They also found little ways to make this night reflect them. Joe is a chef, and made duck and andouille sausage gumbo for the guests. They provided flip-flops, so guests could comfortably dance their butts off (and they did... shirts came off). Their aunt made a delicious wedding cake - they had very little leftovers, and let me tell you, that does not usually happen with the cake at weddings. Usually there are tons of uneaten pieces sitting at the tables. 

This wedding was so Richmond. They were married in a historic Catholic church in Church Hill, and hopped on a trolley afterwards for some pictures at a few iconic Richmond spots, including Bottom's Up Pizza. If you haven't been to Richmond and sat on the deck at Bottom's Up while the train breezes by and nearly flops your pizza off your table, then you haven't been to Richmond. They served local beers to their guests, and of course after the reception ended, they rounded up the party and headed downtown to continue the celebration. 

Here come the pictures, courtesy of Seth Roberts Photography, a very talented husband and wife team. You can just FEEL the energy of this wedding in these pictures. Normally I don't post as many dancing pictures as I am for this wedding, but you'll forgive me.

Check out this Richmond skyline. And look at Casey's beautiful lean. I see you girl.

This pre-reception picture at Bottom's Up Pizza helps to explain some pictures to follow, I think...

Joe is totally a crier. I love when they cry.

And then came the moves.

Later in the night the glowsticks were distributed. Joe was so excited he needed to bust his favorite move back out.

Usually when I ask my brides what they're worried about, they say "I'm afraid my guests won't have a good time" or, "I'm afraid I won't be able to enjoy myself." This wedding is one that I think all couples dream of for that reason. 

Since the wedding, I've had the pleasure of regularly Facebook stalking them and have seen many adorable pictures of the happy couple, often with their equally adorable dog, Bacon. Congratulations to Casey and Joe, who are so deserving of their happily ever after!
