As an enormous dog-lover, Mary and Michael’s darling dog-themed wedding made me fall in love the moment I set eyes upon it! The couple selected the Havana 59 restaurant in Richmond to host their intimate gathering, and their wedding day was filled with handmade and personal details. Mary’s mother created lovely watercolor paintings for the stationery and guest book, which visually told the story of how the couple met and fell in love. Both being dog lovers—Mary is a dog photographer!—the couple knew they wanted to incorporate their puppy love into the wedding theme. Mary ordered dog figurines to serve as escort cards and hand-painted them gold, and designed the table numbers to feature different dog breeds. Their pup even made an appearance on custom stamps for the invitations! Kate Spade‘s Elena flats were the perfect finishing touch! We couldn’t be more smitten with this charming couple and the images from Michael and Carina Photography!
