A Classic Wedding at the Virginia Cliffe Inn | Mike & Lydia Grace

Filed in: Weddings

The forecast called for all-day rain up until a few days before Mike and Lydia Grace’s wedding at the Virginia Cliffe Inn in Richmond, Virgina. Despite the rain scare passing, the forecast still predicted nothing more than overcast skies and drab clouds. Fortunately, the weather cleared up at the last minute, and the day turned out to be nothing less than perfect as the happy couple exchanged their vows and commemorated their joyous occasion with their loved ones.

Mike and Lydia Grace are a couple that are perfectly matched. Despite the noticeable height difference (Mike stands at 6’7″!), they have an undeniable, effortless chemistry. It is clear that they both bring each other immense joy and happiness when they’re together. With smiles, tears, and numerous tender kisses, these two experienced the most wonderful day of their lives.

The couple had a lovely celebration at an Inn with their nearest and dearest, amidst abundant greenery and understated decorations. The charming french blue accents and varied bridesmaid outfits added the ideal finishing touches to their special day. Rachael from Riverwood Events and Catering kept the day running smoothly, while DJ Chris from Bunn DJ Company kept the party going all night long.

One of the best parts of the celebration was when the newlyweds enjoyed their first scoop of Gelati Celesti ice cream together instead of having a wedding cake. They chose the flavor chocolate decadence, which added a perfect personal touch to the occasion. Also, check out the ADORABLE spoons they used for the occasion.

Mike & Lydia Grace’s wedding day was flawless from beginning to end. I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I did capturing them!
