This weekend we hosted our first ever annual Costola Couple’s Night Out party! This is an idea that we had got from the amazing Katelyn James, and we loved the heart behind why she would throw a party for all of her couples. We wouldn’t be thriving in this career if it wasn’t for the amazing men and women who decided that this crazy husband and wife team would be a great fit for them on their wedding day! So as a thank you, we wanted to host a cookout by the pool to celebrate them, their marriages, and the friendship that has grown between us!
Along with some yummy food, we also had games that allowed each couple to win prizes sponsored by some amazing local businesses! We wanted to personally thank the following businesses for sponsoring our games!
After food was served, we took the couple’s that were still at the party out back to do some anniversary mini shoots!! My best friend Hannah, who is now a Costola Bride, came even though her fiancé Jon couldn’t make it due to work! I thought that was just the sweetest thing, so of course we gave her some cute IG worthy pics. She’s getting married in June next year and we are so excited for her!!
Brynn and Justin are NEWLY newly weds! We just photographed their amazing destination wedding in Sarasota last month! Brynn also gifted us the most amazing bag of homemade soaps, lotions, balms, and even a natural deodorant that she made herself. They smell so good, I really want to eat them haha!
Marie and Daniel are coming up on their first anniversary this year!! Their gorgeous wedding at Cameron Estate Inn is one that we will never forget. Marie is also a photographer, so the details were perfection and every single part of their day was planned to a T. We love watching how Marie has grown in her photography over the past year! We see your hustle, girl!
These two!! We will be seeing Jeremiah and Siobhan next week for their anniversary session in Richmond!! We can’t believe how fast times flies. It seems like just yesterday that you both were saying your vows in the gorgeous Shenandoah mountains. Their beautiful wedding at Rixey Manor is here if you’d like to relive some magic!
We finished up the evening with a corn hole tournament!
The last game of the evening was a random drawing for a FREE session on us!! Congratulations Daniel and Marie! You are the winners!! Please email us at any time so we can meet up and celebrate your marriage all over again. Let’s grab some dinner afterwards!
