Emily + Jorge | Wedding at The Dominion Club in Richmond, VA

Here Come the Velizs

On a perfect sunny day in March, Emily and Jorge tied the knot! They got married at a beautiful venue near Short Pump—The Dominion Club. Surrounded by lush green grass and budding spring trees, it couldn’t have been any better.

Jorge and Emily are the perfect matches. You can tell that they are infatuated with each other. Their love is incomparable!

Emily’s wedding shoes were strappy heels in beautiful deep-blue velvet. They really popped with her wedding gown which took Jorge’s breath away. Emily and Jorge also incorporated the same shade of blue into their wedding decor.

Having a first-look is always memorable, no matter if it’s with your partner, a friend, or a loved one. Emily wanted to have a first-look with her three brother’s and their faces were priceless!

Jorge borrowed the camera from the videographer and started filming his new wife during pictures. You can tell from his face that he was having a blast doing it! He loves the camera and is actually a photographer himself.

Their first dance had a lot of Spanish dances mixed into it. The guests loved it and were cheering them on. 

I’m so glad that Emily and Jorge reached out to me. We got along so well and I loved meeting both of their families. By the end of the night, I felt like I was a part of their family!

At the end of their fun-filled night, the happily married couple had a sparkler exit. Not to mention, they also drove off in a luxury BMW. What more could you ask for?

Thank you, Emily and Jorge, for having me capture your special day. Congratulations and cheers to your new life together!
