Vania & Tim | Harrison Opera House Wedding | Norfolk

Posted on Posted in Wedding

Tim and Vania chose a most beautiful day in February to get married. The date was February 22, 2014 and the weather was perfect. The venue was two locations. The first was the most beautiful church nestled in the heart of Ghent in Norfolk, VA. It was the Christ and St. Lukes Church on W. Olney Ave. The building is rich with history and you can see that this place is a pure work of art!
