Danielle + Tucker: A Preppy Virginia Wedding by Steven & Lily Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

We look at a lot of weddings here at PW, and while our main goal is to share inspiring details for your big day, sometimes we get lost in the magic of the couple themselves. Which is absolutely the case with Danielle and Tucker. Look at this pair—have you ever seen a duo more psyched to be married? Their joy and exuberance is contagious, and we love how perfectly that translates into their peppy yellow, orange, and grey decor. Big thanks to Steven and Lily Photography for sharing this day with us! We’re overwhelmed by all the happiness.

This smiley couple met at a bible study while students at Virginia Tech, and wed at Midlothian, Virginia’s Amber Grove. Tucker proposed to Danielle with a specially written song, which played while the bride walked down the aisle. Just before he pronounced them man and wife, Jeff Noble, the officiant of the day and pastor at the couple’s Blacksburg church, asked the duo to face their guests. “Being able to take that moment and realize how special this day was truly was incredible,” remembers Danielle.

Danielle and Tucker found most of their cheery decor at Michael’s and Target, but the paper tissue poms that hung from the the ceiling of their reception tent were truly a labor of love. Danielle and family and friends spent hours fluffing and folding the decor pieces. “We wanted something that was eclectic and Southern sweet,” says the bride. They danced their first dance to Renee Olstead’s “A Love that Will Last” and handed out mason jar mugs as favors. At the end of the night, Danielle’s father surprised the couple with a ride in a vintage 1960 Bentley to their hotel in Richmond.

Danielle’s best advice for couples starting down the wedding planning path? “Go on dates. Do not let the planning get in the way of continuing to have an amazing relationship,” she says. “Work as a team! It is so much more fun to do everything together and make compromises in order to create the perfect day. In doing that, you prepare yourself for marriage, too!”
