A Bedford Columns Wedding


Candace and Zach were married on May 25th, 2017 at the beautiful, beautiful, beautiful Bedford Columns in Bedford, Virginia.

You guys. This SWEET couple…I can’t even. It was just by fate that Candace found me and asked me to be her wedding photographer and I am SO glad she did. We get along like two peas in a pod. She has the sweetest heart of GOLD I am telling you, but when she and Zach are around each other…oh you guys. It’s something else! They have a level of romance and sweet happiness that’s so easily captured so I just KNEW their wedding day would be so precious!

Candace is a planner you guys. She and Kara with Entwined Events really knew how to make every little piece of decor work so beautifully that it came across so romantic just like Candace and Zach themselves. The whole day was so calm and full of SO much excitement. Zach was SO ready to see his bride and when he did…you better believe the tears were ROLLING! Which you guys knows as a wedding photographer, I eat that stuff up! I totally even cried behind my camera myself, because how could you not?!

God seriously blessed us with his grace on their wedding day. Just before the ceremony the radar was showing some PRETTY crazy storm clouds and you guys…they literally DISAPPEARED and as the joined hands a RAINBOW appeared ever so slightly in the sky (see if you can find the picture with it in there)!!! I am not kidding. That happened. As did the beautiful marriage of Candace and Zach. Ahhh! I am SO happy for you guys!!!

When and where did you both meet?

We first saw each other when I worked in the drive ‘thru at a bank. And we first met in person when he picked me up for our first date. This was May of 2015.

When did you know he was the one and vice versa? 

We knew in January of 2016, when we prayed and sought the Lord for His will. And I also had a dream during this time of us getting married… at THE BEDFORD COLUMNS (which I had never heard of before my dream). I looked up the venue, and we had our venue picked before he even popped the question!

What’s the one thing you both love each other the most for? 

Candace: I love his passion as a leader and how encouraging and confident he is in me.. also he’s really handsome!

Zach: I love how sweet-hearted she is to me and how beautiful of a person she is.

How did he propose? 

We went on vacation with his family to Little Gasparilla Island on the gulf side of Florida. We took a sunset walk on the beach and he did it at the end of our walk! He had his family hide in the tall grass to take pictures then they came out to celebrate and get more pictures of us.

enjoy
