As someone who got married in the very same town I met my husband-to-be, I admire couples who return to where their love story began to get married. Jennifer & Robert met as law students at Washington & Lee University & wisely selected the traditional brick & ivy campus as their wedding venue. Combining a classic elegance with pops of navy blue & yellow, this wedding oozes glamorous style. Lucky for the happy couple, Lauren D. Rogers Photography captured every last detail!
As Washington & Lee University law students, Jennifer & Robert met at a mock trial competition. Jennifer was the expert witness & Robert was the acting judge. Once their eyes met, it was clear this romantic case would never be closed! One winter proposal later, Jennifer & Robert were ready to start the rest of their lives together.
The marriage ceremony took place at historic, ivy-covered Lee Chapel on the Washington & Lee University campus. The simple, pretty church was accented with white hydrangeas aisle decorations & overflowing white & yellow arrangements at the altar. Bridesmaids donned short, navy blue dresses & carried happy yellow rose & calla lily bouquets. Jennifer was the very picture of a classic Bride with her bright red lips, cascading rose & calla lily bouquet & gorgeous Provonias gown. A family friend presided over the emotional ceremony as Robert & Jennifer became husband & wife.
The celebration continued at Evans Hall with its soaring ceilings, large chandeliers & black & white floors. Towering hydrangea centerpieces & candlelight decorated the space, along with a darling white wedding cake accented with white hydrangeas, yellow spray roses & navy blue ribbon. Jennifer & Robert dined & danced with their family & friends.
What a fabulous love story set against the backdrop of Washington & Lee University!
