Today’s wedding blog post is a good one! I met this couple at the Virginia Beach oceanfront as a referral from Cherry Blossom Events.
We first started by taking a short walk down a very foggy Virginia Beach oceanfront. The sand was just rained on that morning and the weather was good for a quick walk down the water. Sheri and Howard had told me that the wanted a barn while we were taking the pictures so I knew just the spot to take them. They followed my vehicle through the rain as I was singing “Rain Rain Go Away” while driving down Atlantic Ave. We arrive at the final location for the engagement session and the rain had stopped just enough to get the images we wanted!
We had a great time getting to meet each other before the wedding. It is always nice when you have a destination bride that you get to spend a little time with taking some photos before the actual wedding day. This gives us time to get acquainted and make it an easier transition to letting me photograph some very intimate moments on that one and only special day.
As the wedding day started it was very warm outside as we walked to the ocean, this time to get some pictures the bride requested next to the lifeguard stand on the sand. We tried to get her on the stand but the lifeguard said that we would have to wait till he got off work. So we took pictures in front of him instead!
The wedding party jumped on the 50 passenger tour bus from the beach to get on the interstate and head to Waterside in Norfolk to board the Spirit of Norfolk. The ship was great, the weather was perfect. Sheri and Howard were married on the top deck on the water.
As the party kicked up everyone was dancing thanks to the awesome DJ JJ Campos on hand that night!
The linens colors from Waterford Event Rentals matched the party seamlessly and were a beautiful addition to the tables and chairs on the ship.
The party came to a peaceful end with the bouquet toss leaving two ladies struggling on the floor to come out on top with it! They flowers were an amazing visual touch to the wedding party from Studio Posy.
The beautiful newly wed couple exited to a sea of bubble in the night sky and the whole wedding party cheering with excitement!
The video crew was a pleasure to work with as always from Delta Studio Productions.
