Christine + Braden: Rustic Charm Wedding

Charm for Days!

If you’ve ever been to The Signature in Virginia Beach, you know the venue drips with typical, Virginia, Southern charm. Our couple Christine and Braden took full advantage of this fantastic space and added a little bit of their own personality. These subtle, rustic pops helped complete the look of this simple yet GORGEOUS wedding. Because we love that kind of charm, we’re beyond excited to share this wedding with you!


The love and passion between this couple is UNREAL. B+C, y’all are so sweet!


From the lace ruffles on Christine’s stunning bridal gown to the sweet, elegant Baby’s Breath bouquets, we can’t get enough of this soft, romantic look. Having your girls wear similar jewelry yet letting them choose what’s best for them is a way to add personality and fun. And, while we’re on the subject of your girls, who doesn’t love a blush bridesmaids dress?


There’s so much going on in this photo  that we ADORE. A proud Dad walking his daughter down the aisle on her wedding day is enough to make anyone smile. It’s such a special moment in your wedding day because it symbolizes the start of a new life; a new chapter. This is also a beautiful shot of Christine’s veil. We are in love with how it perfectly accents the lace ruffles on her dress that we mentioned earlier. Can you tell we’re kind of crazy about details? Of course, those roses in the background are just the icing on the cake. We’re swooning!


Guest books have evolved SO MUCH with modern weddings. You don’t have to make your guests sign a book that you’re never going to display. Take a note from Christine and Braden’s wedding and turn your “guestbook” into a piece of art you can display! In this case, the couple chose a wooden letter M to represent their new, shared last name. McQueen!




We’ve already bragged on the bridesmaids so it’s time for the groomsmen to get a little love. First of all, these rustic looking suspenders really pop with their outfits! Their simple, classic boutonnieres match the bridesmaids bouquets which help tie the bridal party together. What an awesome looking group of people!

As if we couldn’t love this couple any more, they decided to donate money to their favorite charity in lieu of giving out wedding favors!


Braden and Christine, your love for each other and the people around you is electric and infectious. It was a joy to be a part of your day. Thank you so much and may this be the start of a wonderful life together.
