I was excited to see the wedding photos with Emma the Cavalier by Luke & Ashley Photography. Emma enjoyed her role as the dog of honor in the luxurious Jefferson Hotel.
From Ashley: “This Jefferson Hotel wedding is full of all things magnificent! It is an award-winning hotel positioned in the heart of downtown Richmond. The Jefferson Hotel made the perfect backdrop for Matt & Tamo to say their ‘I do’s.’ From the gorgeous room, where we found the most amazing light, to the grand rotunda where cocktail hour was, this venue had it all!
As Richmond wedding photographers, we love the variety of locations we get to photograph. Richmond has so much history. The breathtaking architecture is a sight to see, and we especially love all the unique places to take pictures. We didn’t even have to leave the Jefferson parking lot because the surrounding was just stunning. Having so many beautiful spots in walking distance, gave us variety as well as saved us so much time! We loved watching this couple dance among the gorgeous backdrop of the hotel. I mean you can’t go wrong with an overcast day and beautiful scenery!
I love it when our couples bring their fur babies. It does not always work out. However, when it does, it is so special. Matt and Tamo have a Cavalier King Charles spaniel named Emma. She is the sweetest and even posed for me at one point. I tried not to let her steal the show, but there were a few moments in which she did just that. It might not be for every couple to bring their babies along, but when you can, we will always so go for it!
These two make an awesome duo. Their friendship shines, and their love runs deep. Luke and I loved watching these two become husband and wife. The joy that these two put off was tangible for all to feel.

Beautiful pictures, I agree with you Emma steal the show. Love those pictures.
These wedding photos are gorgeous — just like the happy couple. And Emma, adorable! I love that first photo. I love that they included their pup in their wedding and photos.
Cavaliers are such a cute breed, and Emma is adorable. She looks so pretty in her special collar. Definitely the highlight of the pictures
I have a pair of Cavaliers and they are hands down the best! Beautifully done and good luck to the newly married couple.
