Real Richmond Wedding | Tatiana and Keith at The Valentine Museum


Tatiana and Keith
June 18, 2022

 The love story of Tatiana and Keith blossomed during the pandemic. The pair met at a bar, went on their first date, and then the world shut down. They decided to face this difficult circumstance together, and it worked in their favor!

Keith and Tatiana took a trip to Boston for Keith’s national hurling tournament. The night before the big game, they went to dinner and walked around the harbor. After a dreamy night, these two went back to their Airbnb and Keith dropped to one knee! Just the two of them in one of their favorite cities made for the perfect ending to a great night.

As a wedding planner, Tatiana had a blast with the design and aesthetics! Her son, Theodore, walked her down the aisle. When Keith read his vows, he had written them not only for Tatiana, but also for Theodore. They both wanted the Hawaiian florals to be a focal point as a nod to Keith’s family since his father’s family is from there and his parents could not attend.

These two wanted their guests to have an AMAZING experience since most of them had to travel across the country. They hosted a welcome gathering at their favorite brewery along with their favorite food truck. The reception encouraged mingling with small bites and no formal sit-down meal. This was the perfect method to get guests to mingle and get out on the dance floor.

The night was sealed with a private last dance between the newlyweds. Tatiana couldn’t recommend this unique addition more. “It’s a chance to really soak in the day and have a few final moments together.”

A note from the happy couple —- hire a coordinator! No matter how organized you feel or what size your wedding is, hire one! While the planning process can be fun, and a coordinator takes a lot of the weight off, make sure you remember the reason for the occasion. You want your love and union represented and shown on your big day. Don’t lose sight of that!
