When Meg moved to Richmond she moved into the same apartment building as some of Taylor’s friends from high school. Through these mutual friends they met and started dating back in 2012. The proposal came nearly one year ago, on October 26, 2014. Taylor asked Meg to go on a walk to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (one of the locations for their engagement session in Richmond, Virginia) a number of times beginning the week before. After a week of asking, she finally decided to go with him on that walk. When they arrived to the VMFA garden, Jack, Taylor’s Brother, was waiting in some bushes after placing a bottle of champagne and a scrapbook at a nearby bench. Taylor had given that scrapbook to Meg as a gift on their first anniversary and continued to update it year after year. For this occasion, he had done a “special edition” update. As they read through the scrapbook together it ended with “Will you marry me? Smile for the camera.” As she read, Taylor got down on one knee and popped the question. She prepared to say yes and she noticed the rustling in the bushes – Jack jumped out to take their picture.
Their wedding was held at the Sabot at Stony Point in Richmond. Just a few miles from the river and downtown Richmond, Sabot at Stony Point is a converted estate and is now a private school. Their wedding took place in the old gardens and reception under a rented tent right beside the ceremony site. As you’ll see below, their details were wonderful! They had multiple areas for their guests to enjoy including a s’mores bar with all the chocolates you could have dreamed. They danced the night away to the live music of The Jangling Reinharts. Since sparklers were not allowed on grounds, they left through a tunnel of noisemakers (I wish I had the video!) before enjoying their honeymoon.
Congratulations Meg and Taylor! Thank you for allowing us to capture all of your wedding and engagement memories!
