This classic New Year’s Eve wedding in Richmond was the most perfect way to close the books on 2018 and kick off the New Year with a bang. Scroll down to skip the details and dive right into this killer party of a wedding. For starters, our Richmond couple really knows their way around swanky, cool, and historic Richmond sites. Megan chose the Jefferson Suite at The Jefferson Hotel Richmond as her getting ready site. Located in downtown, this historic Richmond venue was built in the late 1800s. It is wedged between VCU and Lucy’s Restaurant, the place where Megan and Matthew had their first date. AND it is also where Matthew told her that he loved her. There is more to the story, but hang tight. We need to talk to you about their ceremony and reception first. So, the next stop on our couple’s amazing downtown Richmond wedding venue tour is Monumental Church. With neoclassical architecture restored by Historic Richmond, this over 200 year old church is their ceremony venue. Megan’s look as she walks down the aisle is the best. The last stop of our New Year’s Eve wedding is the Training Center at Bon Secours, otherwise known as the swanky reception venue. Perfect for late night events (like this NYE themed wedding!), this space was transformed into classy party space. Oh man, Starry Night Events, Classic Party Rentals of Virginia, and Mosaic Catering and Events worked their MAGIC with this one. You’ll find all the best parts of a classic New Year’s Eve wedding, like sleek lounge seating, gold and acrylic accents, a raw oyster bar, a live band, and an on-stage countdown with the bride and groom to ring in the New Year. 

And now for their story. Megan and Matthew were friends for nine or ten years before having that oh wow, I think this is more than friendship moment. As soon as they took the plunge from friendship into love came weekends with family in Deltaville. It was on one of these trips that Matthew proposed to Megan. With the setting sun as a backdrop, he gave her something to hold (no, not the ring. It was a drink) and asked to take her picture with the intention being that instead of taking it, he would propose. It would have been an easy proposal story, except that Megan didn’t want her picture taken. Eventually, though, Matthew popped the question. His bride said, “Yes.” And, their New Year’s Eve themed wedding was so much fun. We had the best time being our sweet couple’s Richmond wedding photographers. Now, let’s take a look at their Classic NYE wedding.
