Picture this: summer time, a gorgeous couple, a cute pup, and a SWEET venue. I, Tilley, am a summer girl myself, so today’s real VA wedding really inspired me! It took place at the Tides Inn in Irvington, VA, and I think  it might be on my list of 5 best venues in VA…

Cedric’s face as he turned to see her is priceless.

Cedric and his groomsmen kept it classic in black suits and red striped ties.

The bridesmaids wore red lace, knee length dresses with cap sleeves. I love their different colored bouquets!

As guests walked in for the ceremony, they could snap a quick selfie and add it to the guest book with a note before taking their seats. Genius.

The sun shined down like a spotlight as Renee glided down the aisle.

The outdoor reception went from day to night and it was decorated perfectly. Not too much and not too little.

As night fell, guests could hang out around the fire and roast marshmallows for s’mores or…
