A Rose Garden Wedding in Richmond, VA

It was a random Friday night in Applebee’s, when Ashley  asked Melvin if he could slide down so she and her friends  could sit together. Ashley had her back towards Melvin  for most of the night, when one of her friends said that  he looked familiar and started a conversation.  After leaving the restaurant, they all went to a popular nightclub in RVA. By the end of the night, Melvin and Ashley exchanged numbers and the rest is history! Check out the details of their gorgeous garden wedding captured by Terri Baskin

Briefly tell us about your wedding experience and how  the both of you felt on your big day. Include your most  memorable moment. 

We both like to dance and for  years we talked about how we would enter our reception.  When the day finally came, we had nothing! Then “Ape Sh*t” by The Carters came on and we did what we do best, fed off of each other and put on a show. So much so, our guests thought it was rehearsed. That sums us up  perfectly!  

Wedding song, explain choice for song:  

“XO” by Beyoncé. It’s one of our favorite songs and the lyrics tell a story of how we feel about one another.  

What are you most looking forward to as a married  couple?  

Growth and raising a family together.  

Advice for a Bride/Groom on their wedding day:  

Ashley’s advice: Be present and take in the whole day  because it goes by quickly. Your memories will last a  lifetime.  

Melvin’s advice: Don’t stress. Your day will be perfect!
