It’s #WeddingWednesday and today’s picture perfect black tie wedding is one for the books. Samantha and Chase’s wedding at the Richmond Renaissance in Virginia is the epitome of a beautiful, updated classic affair. David Abel Photography gave us some insight into their love story: “Chase is the type of guy that always puts others before himself making sure you’re having a good time no matter what you’re doing. When it comes to Samantha there isn’t a thing he wouldn’t do of her. He loves to make her smile because when he does he says, ‘I can’t help but realize how lucky I am to have her in my life.’ Samantha is the perfect balance for Chase in every way and their lighthearted attitudes makes them a pleasure to be around.”
Samantha’s gorgeous A-line gown by Bella Rosa Bridal was the perfect timeless choice, and the purple hues of her bridemaids’ gown added a bright pop of color. The groom and his groomsmen looked dapper in their tuxedos, and the look on Chase’s face as he first saw Samantha walk down the aisle is what every bride dreams of. Their reception was filled with beautiful purple and pink decor, and we especially love their decadent four-tier cake with colorful roses added throughout.
