Natalie and Casey’s Hanover County wedding day was gorgeous! The weather was perfection, and every detail of the day was beautiful. Natalie and Casey prepared in separate parts of Chamberlayne Baptist Church and the atmosphere was calm. Natalie and Casey had been together for years, and this day seemed a natural progression in the course of their relationship. Having known Natalie for many years…as she was my first son’s primary babysitter when he was young…there was no doubt that Natalie was where she was meant to be, with who she was meant to be with. And that meant there was no cause for nerves. Her heart was full of love, and all she wanted to do was become Casey’s wife. Casey, too, was calm and ready for this moment. He had spent years waiting for this day, knowing all along that it is where they would end up.
Their families and friends surrounded them with love and support as they poured out self-written vows and promised each other forever. Natalie, Casey, and all their guests started the evening at the altar but ended it on the dance floor. They danced. They laughed. And they cherished the family and friends who had come to share this special day with them.
Natalie and Casey,
Like the two of you, I have waited for this day for a LONG time! And I can’t tell you how honored I feel to have been a part of this special time in your lives! Thank you so very much for having me. I wish you many years of love and happiness together. Michelle 🙂
And the jewelry!
Natalie wore some special family heirlooms on an ankle bracelet on her wedding day. It’s always fun to see the way couples incorporate meaningful items into their wedding days.
And who doesn’t love some Toms?!?! Especially some pink, sparkly ones!
There’s the beautiful bride!
Always so special to see the groom’s face as he watches his bride walk towards him.

This is still always one of my favorite parts of a wedding day…portraits with the bride and groom. Whether it’s a First Look or after the ceremony, PLEASE make time for portraits!
It’s time to party!
These simple, exquisite details transformed the reception tent…
A delicious cake by Richmond’s very own Ukrop’s bakery! Yum. As always.

They danced the night away with friends and family and couldn’t be more excited to be husband and wife! Loved the sparkler exit with extra long sparklers!
Congratultions, Natalie and Casey!
