Real Weddings: Nichole + Derk

I’m so excited to launch the new Richmond local wedding guide on EAD.  There are so many amazing Richmond weddings out there and I can’t wait to show them off, and to welcome the two wonderful ladies who will be blogging about their Richmond weddings, Meredith and Rachel.

To celebrate the upcoming launch of the guide, I have a fabulous Richmond wedding for you today!  The lovely Katie from Katie Stoops Photography captured all of Nichole and Derk’s gorgeous images.  Their ceremony was held in the courtyard of the Edgar Allen Poe Museum, and the reception at local restaurant Havana 59.  Nichole is absolutely stunning in her J Crew gown!

Nichole pulled together a bouquet of fluffy pink peonies, which perfectly matched her elegant silk gown.

Guests then headed from the Poe Museum over to Havana 59 for a fun reception with yummy Cuban food!

I love the layout of this restaurant, it’s such a great setting for a reception or party.

Nichole gathered wildflowers to add a colorful, floral touch to the decor.
