Come Sail Away: a Richmond Wedding with a One-of-a-Kind Limousine

You’ve got to love a wedding where the “just married” sign gets put on the back of a boat — as it does here in this fun, festive collection of pictures from a Richmond wedding, courtesy of Jodi Miller Photography. Now, that may not be your choice of wedding “limousine,” but if you’re thinking of a very classy, elegant wedding with a touch of Southern flair, you can draw some inspiration from this couple’s special day. These images whisper “romance” at every turn: what woman wouldn’t love to wear wedding shoes like those fabulous embroidered models? Dangling earrings pick up the sparkle of the day in more ways than one; the dress is simple, yards of delicate lace from a fitted bodice. Draped gently over it, the veil is a mere wisp of chiffon, lighter than air.

Posing in the sunlight with his bride, the groom exudes a quiet dignity in simple gray tux and sky-blue tie — and what could be more delightful than pretty maids all in that same sky blue and pearls? Very little says “bridal” better than a round bouquet of pure white roses — but the cake is a bit of a surprise: white, true, but garlanded with yellow frosting ribbons, fronted with a ring of blue votive candles. A splendid time is had by all in a rustic hall with track lighting for the musicians and spots to play up the special cheery glow of all in attendance. After one final joyous toast, the happy couple ambles down the deck hand-in-hand…ready to literally sail “into the sunset” together. It’s romance…it’s elegance…it’s joy — and it’s a dream wedding for this happy Richmond couple.
