Today’s couple, TJ and Mia, have a pretty funny “meet cute.” We’re excited to share not only their story, but their whole stately Virginia bay wedding with you today. First of all, the pair met at a mattress store. She was shopping with her mom during a holiday sale and TJ was the manager of the store. After putting on his best salesman pitch, he took a big risk the very next day. He called Mia’s mother under the guise of good customer service to get Mia’s phone number. Her mom said no (ha!), but she reluctantly took TJ’s information and shared it with Mia. Mia was shocked, confused, and a little creeped out; however, after a little coaxing , she sent TJ a quick text and the rest is history.
TJ and Mia wanted their wedding to be beautiful and elegant. TJ is from Alabama and Mia is from Washington, DC and a lot of their choices for their wedding were about bringing in both of their backgrounds. The couple chose a venue by the water, since TJ used to spend a lot of time by the riverwalks when he was younger; Mia really pushed for features of their wedding to have a classic, chic feeling. The outdoor waterfront ceremony achieved TJ’s goals while the ballroom reception space achieved Mia’s. They brought in fall wedding colors with deep purples and reds, but focused their color pallette to be golds, silvers, creams, and blush. Make sure you catch a glimpse at their wardrobe change. Mia’s jumpsuit is to die for! Thank you to Chip Dizard for sharing this Virginia wedding with us today.
