After having to reschedule twice due to the pandemic, Gabrielle and Benjamin finally celebrated their marriage during a beautiful October day. Their ceremony was held at Nativity Catholic Church followed by a reception at Belmont Country Club in Ashburn, Virginia. Let me tell you – it was worth the wait! Meeting their families and seeing their support made the day so special.
Gabrielle and Benjamin met at Radford University, and we captured their engagement photos in Richmond, Virginia last spring. When they started planning their wedding, they knew they wanted a classic, elegant day. They chose French blue, mauve and gold to complement their black-tie affair, which transitioned beautifully into the fall season. They also built a custom champagne bar, which was obviously a big hit. Not to mention the gorgeous boxwood backdrop and custom sign behind their cake. Scroll down to see it for yourself!
The day wasn’t just beautiful – it was also filled with meaningful moments. Hearing the toasts showed just how close they are to their families and friends. Everyone was simply so happy to celebrate. Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Carbray!! Enjoy a few more sneak peeks below!
