The Virgil – Reno Wedding Venue | Olivia & James

Olivia and James had a romantic, beautiful, meaningful, perfect wedding day at The Virgil.

This day proved something huge to me —
A beautiful + meaningful wedding day is created from one ingredient only: LOVE.

It can truly be as simple as that.

Olivia & James planned their wedding last minute. They dealt with visa issues and waited 19 months for their visa to get married. They couldn’t wait a second longer, and planned their wedding in less than two months. It was simple & more than perfect.

They didn’t spend a million dollars on florals or decorations. We ate tacos for dinner. They exchanged beautiful vows. And they celebrated with a few of their favorite humans.

This wedding venue almost seems like a hidden gem in Reno. The Virgil is so stunning, and one of my absolute favorites. When Olivia and James said they were having their wedding here, I was stoked. The light and airy-ness of it all is just stunning. You don’t need to add much to it for it to be beautiful.

It was the perfect reminder that it’s okay to have a simple day focused around your love. It’s okay to do your own hair & makeup. It’s okay to enjoy the process of planning a wedding and not stress out over table decorations, an arch, or any of the crazy bells & whistles.

We snuck away to a nearby rooftop for some editorial vibe wedding photos. It was cold and windy, but O & J were shining brighter than the golden hour glow.

So here’s your sign to make the day about you two and the first day of forever together. Because WOW is it a perfect start to your journey.

I fucking love what I do, and I do it with my whole heart and soul.

My couples are my family. I do not take it lightly that you are entrusting me to capture the biggest day of your life, so in return, I will protect you, serve you, and give you my best self. I will capture your memories and tell your story as honestly and authentically as possible. I pinch myself every day to make sure this is really my job. I fucking love what I do, and I do it with my whole heart and soul.
