Remember Chris & Vida and their adorable waterside engagement session in Alexandria, VA? Well they are BACK this time with their romantic Sea Foam & Teal Virginia wedding at the Regency at Dominion Valley! Photographer Kelly Ewell set the stage beautifully for Chris & Vida’s big day with this note:
When I asked Vida what she was looking forward to most about her wedding day, it wasn’t seeing her vision come together or reuniting with long-missed family members. It was simply that she was going to get to start her own new family with Chris. To finally “bind our lives together publicly, and to celebrate our marriage and our love.
^uh. Love. I know you guys will love all the simple & beautiful details from Chris & Vida’s wedding below!

My dress was very lacey and romantic looking, which really inspired my whole day. I love green, and I wanted very romantic, springy colors in our wedding. I settled on shades of pale green and seafoam along with white.
Oh, and did I mention my [adorable vintage teal flats] shoes?! I adore them, and they were so much fun at the wedding!
On using the help of friends & family to plan and execute their Virginia wedding:
We planned and coordinated everything ourselves with the exception of the wonderful staff at Regency Dominion Valley. My mother was a lifesaver. She helped me pick out my dress, venue, hand-tied bags of candied almonds (a traditional Italian wedding favor), and generally kept me calm throughout the whole thing! Chris’s brother presided over our marriage vows, which was so special to us.
Chris himself was absolutely amazing throughout our entire engagement. He talked me off the “let’s elope” ledge so many times and each time it made me feel so blessed that I was marrying him.
