A Wedding at The Mill at Fine Creek | Michelle + Jon |Richmond Wedding Photographer

A wedding at the Mill at Fine Creek was a DREAM and capturing Michelle + Jon’s special day was nothing short of emotion!  From tears to laughs to a continuous smile on my face…it was the PERFECT winter day for these two and we couldn’t be anymore honored to have been a part of it!!  When I met Michelle and Jon awhile back, I fell in love with them and their love story almost immediately!  And then to hear that they chose The Mill at Fine Creek as their venue without being in the Richmond area but purely because of The Mill, the history behind it, and the venue itself, it was truly a dream wedding for these two!  Yes, it was December so it was a tad chilly but it was worth every minute of it!  With family and friends traveling from all different parts of the country to celebrate such a special day for Michelle and Jon, it completely defined what a wedding day is about…marrying the love of your life and sharing the day with ones that you love most!  And this couldn’t have been more true!  When I looked around, the love that their friends and family have for these two, just showed in their eyes and it was truly special to watch!  And they were all so welcoming that Michelle’s dad started our day by insisting he take a picture of US to remember and cherish these days of being able to do what we love!  And Michelle and Jon, you two just make me smile-like a big smile that just hurts your cheeks after awhile because you can’t stop!  I seriously love you two and loved being a part of this special time in your lives!  Always remember how you felt during this time because your love is an inspiration and affectionateness!  May you two continue to make each other as happy as you are today and always laugh hard together! :-)
