Jenny and Ty’s beautiful Historic Post Office wedding is one for the books! They are the very first couple to be married at this gorgeous venue in downtown Hampton. From the DIY items that the bride’s mother made to the pizza bar for dinner, this wedding had a ton of personality that added to it’s one-of-a-kind status. Forgoing photographs during the ceremony, everybody was able to truly enjoy the moment. Bracing the bitter cold, the entire bridal party headed outside for some creative bridal party portraits with Fowler Studios. Since the winter wedding had an early sunset, they brought along extra lighting and some biodegradable faux snow for a fun effect in the photos. We loved seeing the special union and celebration of this family, and wish them all of the joy in the world! Check out more of their wedding and insight from the bride below!

Let's Wed Yellow Dot Pattern

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

We chose to go with neutrals and deep jewel tones for our wedding party. For our reception decor we went with simple white linens accented with gold and evergreen for a classic clean look.

Which local vendors made your day EXTRA special?

Susan Fowler with Fowler Studios. She is incredible at capturing moments that will be lasting memories. We couldn’t ask for a better photographer.

Bill Stutz with S&A Entertainment provided our DJ service. He was incredible! He met with us multiple times before the wedding which is unlike most DJ services who meet with you once, have you fill out a sheet and see you the day of the wedding. He wanted to know us so he could tailor the day to be just what we had dreamed and they also supplied the photo booth that stayed packed all night.

Papa Ciccio’s. Ruth was amazing and over delivered on everything. We were worried about a pizza buffet, the idea sounded amazing but the execution would need to be on point for it to work. She delivered all of this and more. We said no to the standard chicken or beef option for our guest and instead pizza for everyone. It was delicious!

What is your best piece of advice for other local brides?

Don’t be afraid to stray from the “traditional” wedding. Make it the memory you want and the party you know that you, your friends and your family will most enjoy!
