The beautiful wedding ceremony of Cheryl and Matt took place in the Saint Gabriel Catholic Church in Chesterfield. Both Cheryl and Matthew wanted to go the traditional way and not see each other before the wedding.
This gorgeous venue gave me plenty of opportunities to click memorable pictures of the ceremony and the family in attendance.
The reception party was later hosted at the Brandermill Country Club in Midlothian.
The bride and groom party was a fun lot of people comprising two bridesmaids, two matrons of honor (Cheryl wanted her sister Vickie and best friend, Julie, to be her matrons of honor), three groomsmen and one bestman. And of course, I cannot forget the cute little flower girls and ring bearer who made the ceremony even more beautiful.
Both Cheryl and Matthew had their parents present at the wedding. The couple had a very unique theme for their wedding-navy blue and silver with sunflowers. The idea was to have a sober background color scheme and add a dash of brightness with the yellow sunflowers! I loved this concept and it worked extremely well for the pictures too.
The floral arrangement for the wedding was done by florist Jan Daniel. Jan also made and delivered the wedding cake for Cheryl and Matthew (TAA-DAA Cakery).
Following the ceremony at the church, the entire wedding party gathered at the reception venue at around 4pm. The celebrations started off with the guests dancing to some amazing music played by Joe Bowman from Dynamite DJ’s. Of course, I really enjoyed clicking the family and friends having so much fun!
