Rinelle and JP: On the Riverfront in Old Town Alexandria

by Amy Serrago

Rinelle and JP started out as friends, but that friendship soon grew into love. And they’ve been together ever since. JP popped the question on his college graduation day, surrounded by the couple’s close friends and family. Of course, Rinelle said yes! And so, they had two reasons to celebrate. Soon after setting their wedding date for the following year, JP got an opportunity that had him moving across the country to pursue his career in San Diego. Meanwhile, Rinelle got to work on the planning. She started by choosing the ceremony location, her childhood chapel.

Rinelle was radiant as she walked down the aisle in her Watters & Watters gown. And JP was handsome in his blue suit and gray tie. Meanwhile, the groomsmen wore gray suits and blue ties and the bridesmaids were pretty in cream colored gowns. All of the ladies carried bouquets of white flowers and greenery.

Rinelle tackled countless DIY projects to make her dream wedding a reality. From the invitations to the gorgeous circular arch that she used for both the ceremony and the reception! In addition to that, she created the floral hoop centerpieces and all the custom signage. A green and white floral theme and gold accents completed the decor. And for dessert JP and Rinelle served donuts with their “naked” wedding cake. Finally, the newlyweds made their getaway through a shower of confetti. Congratulations Rinelle and JP!
