Savanna & James’ Spring Wedding


James and Savanna's story began in 2015 at Radford University. As neighbors, they often exchanged glances and shy smiles, secretly hoping the other would break the ice. One cold fall night, fueled by a bit of liquid courage, they finally met. Though they still debate how the conversation went, they both agree that they fell madly in love that night, and the rest is history.

Six inseparable years later, they’ve created countless memories, traveling, exploring Virginia's wineries and breweries, and sharing adventures with friends who have become family.
