Jackie and Ben tied the knot in front of their friends and families at First English Evangelical Lutheran Church in Richmond, Va. After fun photos along Monument Ave, we headed over to their reception at The Boathouse at Rocketts Landing. However, Jackie and Ben didn’t make just any entrance… They surprised their guests (who had been conveniently given streamers and lured out on the balcony for a photo by the ever talented Dean Hoffmeyer) with a grand entrance by boat! A night of dancing ensued, capped by Billy Joel’s Piano Man as the final song of the evening, which was played as Jackie and Ben danced in the middle of a circle of their guests. This awesome couple treated their guests to beautiful wine stoppers (which Ben made by hand, as he demonstrated during their engagement session) as well as many other thoughtful details, all pulled together flawlessly by Lindsay Averette at LK Events and Design. The streamers came in handy once again for their exit as they sped away in Ben’s truck, cans in tow and all! Following are my favorites from the day. Enjoy!
