When beautiful bride Jessica teamed up with her talented Alex C. Tenser Photography, the ladies agreed The Virginia House was going to be the perfect location for a portrait shoot! In search of a moody, rich and regal aesthetic, the historic English manor totally fit the bill. Did you know that the structure that is now The Virginia House was originally constructed in England in the 1500’s? The house was later demolished and parts were brought across the pond where it was replicated in Richmond at the turn of the 20th century. So cool, right? With that rich and unique history it’s no wonder this estate provided such a beautiful backdrop! These ladies also brought in the talented Maggie Richard Design to style some ethereal and elegant vignettes throughout the venue. We know you’ll enjoy browsing all the beautiful bridal moments below!
From rich and wild bouquets to moody and muted roses the talented ladies from The Proper Petal worked their magic for this shoot!
Our collection of Vintage Silver Tea Trays always make great props for styling! We love the mix of rich wine colored hues the soft textures the fruit and flowers provide in these detail images.
Our pair of Tall Brass Candlesticks look classic and chic in the gorgeous natural light of this portrait!
How gorgeous is this little collection of candlesticks? We absolutely loved how they incorporated these elegant smallwares into this portrait setting. The multicolored candles and mismatched brass seem to perch perfectly along this dark wood windowsill.
So many lovely details! No surprise that this fine art portrait session was also recently featured on Artfully Wed.
Beautiful captures of a beautiful bride!
