Happy Wednesday from Virginia!!

As you may remember, this is not our first time in Virginia this summer! In fact, we traveled to the East Coast this June for our first out-of-state AJ Workshop in Richmond, Virginia (which you can read all about here) but what you haven’t seen yet are any of the styled shoot images! Well, that changes today!! We are SO excited to see our workshop’s styled shoot featured on Green Wedding Shoes this week, and equally excited to finally get to share these images with the world! It’s always SO hard to keep them under wraps!!

It couldn’t have been more fun timing that during the week that we’re actually back in Virginia (where we’re currently writing this post from!) we get to relive all the magic from both of our Virginia styled shoots!

We loved our time in Richmond. Some of the nicest people on the planet — Paisley and Jade — hosted us in their beautiful rental furniture warehouse in Richmond’s historic industrial district. Seriously, even if you don’t need to rent furniture for an event, it’s worth it to pay these people just so you can hang out with them. They’re. Just. That. Cool. We thought that planning a workshop from so far away would be a stressful, time-consuming process, an almost impossible task. But then the amazing Amanda Veronee walked into our life, and we’d be remiss if we didn’t take this chance to give her a big, fat, virtual hug for designing an incredible inspiration shoot for our attendees that was waiting for us when we arrived!

Amanda, thank you to you and your entire creative team for knocking it out of the park. You all were such a pleasure to work with. If we could pack you in our suitcase and bring you back to Arizona, we would!

Also, this styled shoot was extra special for us because two of our dear friends, Annamarie Akins and her husband Ryan, weren’t only our personal hosts while we were in Richmond — who cooked us homemade barbecue chicken and baked us chocolate pie, we might add — they were also the workshop models! And aren’t they gorgeous?! Sheesh! Those are gonna be some beautiful babies one day, you two! We loved every minute of our time with you!

Lastly, to our AJ Workshop Richmond attendees, we love you guys and had the best time with you in June! Keep rockin’ it out!

This is the first time we’ve been able to share these images with you — and we’re so excited to! — because we submitted them for publication to a top national wedding blog (Green Wedding Shoes) and they’re being featured today!
