Real Richmond Wedding: Amanda & Travis Broadberry Concert Venue Wedding
Amanda & Travis
September 24, 2016
Amanda & Travis met and bonded over their love of music in 2012. Amanda says, “His friendship was especially important to me because at that time, I was grieving my late husband who had passed away from cancer. Travis made it safe for me to smile, laugh, and have fun again.” A little over a year later, Travis surprised Amanda with tickets to see her all-time favorite band, Tool, in Memphis, TN. With the tickets in hand, he got down on one knee!
Wanting a “Glam Rock ‘n’ Roll cocktail party,” these music-lovers instantly thought of The Broadberry for their wedding! Amanda says, “The dark walls were perfect for our ‘metal’ side while the chandeliers catered to my glam rock side. Plus, the urban exterior and location stayed true to our love of Richmond.”
When it came to WOW factors, Amanda & Travis’s wedding did not fall short! Amanda told us, “For me the ‘cherry on top’ expenditures that were super special were definitely the Rostov’s coffee favors for our guests and the Bentley. Those are the things people are still talking about now, almost a year later!”
Amanda names the First Look with Travis and their photographer, Paige Stevens, as her favorite part of the day. “I was shaking and giggling and tearing up, but it was a magical moment when he turned to look at me!” Travis says his favorite memory was their first dance to 311’s version of “Love Song.”
