alana + tim’s two rivers country club wedding

Williamsburg United Methodist Church and Two Rivers Country Club!

Shayna from Williamsburg Wedding Design executed another beautiful day as Alana and Tim celebrated their wedding in Williamsburg. The bride and groom started the day getting ready at the Williamsburg Hospitality House as Jennifer Rodriguez pampered the bride with hair and makeup. The Williamsburg United Methodist Church served as the location for the exchange of the wedding vows. The wedding party and family and friends then headed over to the Two Rivers Country Club for cocktails, dinner and dancing. Cathy from The Flower Cupboard delivered the beautiful flowers, as Williamsburg Event Rentals supplied the table linens and Carrot Tree Kitchens provided the delicious cake. Two Rivers Country Club yet again delivered another breathtaking sunset on The James and Chickahominy Rivers. Everyone enjoyed the evenings festivities as the Edsall Road Irish Band kept the dance floor jumping as the guests enjoyed another one of Shayna’s world class candy bars. (Mmmm… black and white gummy penguins!) Congratulations to Alana & Tim!

Todd Weaver was killed in action on September 9th, 2010 while leading his platoon during an ambush operation against Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan. Todd was a husband, a father, a son and a true American Hero who gave the ultimate sacrifice. I had the privilege of photographing Emma + Todd’s wedding in 2008. Please keep Emma, baby Kiley, Emma and Todd’s parents and family, and all the soldiers deployed In Afghanistan and Iraq in your thoughts and prayers.
