Alexa and Stephen | Richmond, Virginia Wedding

When Stephen proposed to Alexa, he jokingly started off by pulling a ring pop out of his backpack. Of course she thought it was a joke at first, until he got down on one knee and showed her the real ring! I was a victim of many fake proposals before my actual proposal happened (thanks hubby), so I can totally relate with dating/marrying a prankster :)  I know Stephen keeps Alexa laughing all the time and their happiness together was unmistakable on their wedding day. These two college sweethearts tied the knot this fall in Richmond surrounded by friends, family, and Alexa’s beloved “Otha Mothas” (her mom's best friends).

Alexa and the girls got ready at Alexa’s parents’ house. They had mimosas, matching robes, and a four-poster bed that was just made for photos! Their family dog Bailey jumped on the bed for some shots too :)

Stephen's faces were cracking me up all day!

First Look time!

Here Stephen goes again with the faces!

Ever wonder what it would look like if someone dropped the wedding rings and lost them in the grass? Now you know :)

Don't worry, the rings were recovered!

I absolutely loved their reception setup at the Fox Hall Clubhouse. The white paper lanterns hanging above the dance floor were beautiful!

There are so many pictures throughout the day of these two laughing together  ❤

Dance floor candid photos may not be the most beautiful or artistic pictures from the wedding day, but they are SO. MUCH. FUN!

Gotta love a good sparkler exit! A beautiful end to a beautiful day ❤
