John Marshall Ballrooms Wedding in Winter - April + Jerrod

April and Jerrod had a glamourous, fairy tale wedding at the beautiful John Marshall Ballrooms with a First Look at the Virginia State Capitol! April had shared that her vision was a winter wonderland, and that’s exactly what she got!

This sweet couple’s love story began when a friend introduced them at the Bacon Festival in Richmond, Virginia on a rooftop patio overlooking the canal. The two started talking, and before they knew it, the entire afternoon had passed!

Since they were having a 4PM ceremony in December, April knew that having a First Look would be crucial if they wanted some beautiful portraits of the two of them outdoors. The forecast called for rain, but thankfully it held off long enough for the couple to have plenty of time for their First Look and lots of romantic portraits!

And for anyone who may be reading this thinking they don’t want to spoil the emotional moment that a groom sees his bride walking down the aisle, please check out Jerrod’s super sweet reaction when he saw his beautiful bride April coming toward him! These two really had the best of both worlds—they got those intimate moments before the ceremony where they got to see each other first, they got tons of portraits afterward, and they still had that electric moment when the groom is waiting for the bride coming down the aisle! Just perfection!
