Burlington Plantation Wedding | Williamsburg VA | Allen and Kaylee

Allen and Kaylee’s Epic Wedding Story.


Their wedding story began with their EPIC engagement session…which you can experience HERE.
Their day was held between two amazingly beautiful locations. The First Baptist Church of Williamsburg and the BEAUTIFUL Burlington Plantation Wedding and Event Venue in Charles City, VA .

The Posh Pair knocked it out of the park with 21 services and they never missed a beat and had everyone ready and drop dead gorgeous on time!

These two LOL….

Getting in your dress on your wedding day is a moment that needs to be savored. After months and months of planning you finally slip into the dress you will wear down the aisle to say I do to your best friend.

The strong women in Kaylee’s life that molded her into the woman she is today was by her side and it was a special moment when they walked into the room to see her for the first time.

The one who loved her first and the father in law who loves her too now.

Daddy’s first look at his sweet daughter in her wedding dress…these always make me tear up.

Someone is ready to celebrate!

Kaylee took a moment to stop and listen to the Blue Grass Band as they played for the congregation pre ceremony

A moment for them before the wedding ceremony

The moment their eyes meet is always a special moment

A very cool tradition of First Baptist Church of Williamsburg is when someone is married they ring the church bell. Heard all over the city! So special.

Burlington Plantation Wedding Venue is beyond beautiful and the PERFECT venue and it was filled to the MAX with 300 plus guests.

Lets talk about Allen and his dancing…He LOVES to dance and dance he did all night long. Their dance was not a conventional slow dance…it was wide open and fun!

The band 10 Spot knocked it out of the park! What a goooood band, they kept the dance floor full all night long.

Kaylee and Allen opted to go to their cocktail hour and enjoy the Bluegrass Band instead of doing their portraits so we squeezed out some time in the evening for some night portraits instead.

This cake was the most beautiful, and the largest cake I have ever had the pleasure of photographing and the fact that a long time family friend Eddy made this entire cake…every sugar flower… every last detail…is amazing. He is not for hire though so sorry ladies….he came out of retirement to do this for Kaylee and Allen. The moment Kaylee realized it was her favorite cake flavor, Confetti Cake…was so cute!

Toasts, Tosses and Dancing made the night complete and the sweet night treat of coffee and donuts before their sparker exit made the perfect ending to the perfect day.

As I was coming back in to breakdown my gear to go home….all by themselves on the dance floor…was the new Mr. and Mrs. Bynum dancing to the tune of their own music…soaking up the day and having their own personal last dance. It was really sweet to witness.

Kaylee and Allen my hearts desire for you is to have a love like no other, one that inspires others to fall in love and dance to their own music. May God richly bless you guys for ever. Amen ~
