Richmond Virginia Love Story Wedding
Rashida came to us and told us one simple thing: her wedding to Reggie would be all about their love story.
Rashida and Reggie met through a dinner club. And though they didn't expect to find love at the time, love most certainly found them. For their wedding celebration, we were honored to create custom details that fit the look of their modern art museum wedding reception in Richmond, Virginia.
We began by writing and designing a custom invitation suite that featured a line we wrote "Great love stories happen to those who share them." This is actually a twist on a quote by NPR's Ira Glass, who is known for saying "Great stories happen to those who can tell them." One of Reggie and Rashida's shared loves is listening to NPR so we used this quote as inspiration to tie directly into their personalities and love story in their wedding suite.
You see the Indian architecture-inspired elements here because they are direct allusions to Reggie and Rashida's shared love of travel, in particular a trip they took together to India that strengthened and deepened their relationship.
For their wedding ceremony, we wrote and designed newspaper-inspired programs we titled "The Gordon-Gray Gazette." This unique ceremony program retold the history of their love story, the history of the church they were wed in (Mt. Nebo Baptist Church in Blackstone, Virginia), and even included a crossword puzzle featuring the wedding party.
We featured Reggie and Rashida's wedding vows in their special Love Story Art Canvas. This piece was on display during their wedding reception and has become a keepsake piece of art for the rest of their lives.
Lastly, we were happy to take care of other special details, such as custom thank you notes, wedding signage, and these fun double-sided cocktail hour cards. Each of them featured fun facts about Reggie and Rashida and favorite quotes about love, inspired to get their guests talking and into their celebration before the reception.
It was so special telling Reggie and Rashida's love story last April. We can hardly believe it's been a year - Reggie and Rashida, happy, happy first wedding anniversary! May there be many more exciting chapters of your love story ahead.
