Maggie and Whit got married on March 13th just before the whole world went on lockdown. They definitely got married during a monumental year and I’m so glad I got to be a part of it! Maggie is an Annalise bride and one of my coworkers recommended her to me on a day I wasn’t working. From our first interaction, I knew I was going to love helping her with her dream wedding! Maggie and her mom were so easy to work with from day 1. Even on the day of her rehearsal when the overwhelming fear of an unknown virus was being plastered all over the news, Maggie seemed to have a sense of calmness about her that was so refreshing.
They got married on a Friday at St. Peter’s Catholic Church and had their cocktail hour and reception to follow at the John Marshall Ballrooms. This was the first wedding I had done at both locations as a wedding planner, although I had been to a couple of weddings at the John Marshall growing up in Richmond. The girls got ready at the Linden Row Inn which meant that I could walk to every single location. It was a gorgeous day in March, slightly warmer than usual and it was an absolutely perfect day for a wedding!
They had such a fun group at the wedding with an amazing band that kept the guests entertained and happy! The entire day went according to plan and it was the best way to start a wedding season. I am so happy that we got to sneak Maggie and Whit’s wedding in just in time before all other spring weddings got postponed. I am so excited for all of my couples this year and can’t wait to see all of them get married whether that be on their original date later this summer or in 2021.
Maggie and Whit are so kind and the love they share for each other was so obvious the entire weekend! I wish them the absolute best and can’t wait to see what’s in store for their future. They will definitely have a wedding year to remember and stories to share with their family for year to come!
