Regent University Wedding | Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer | Taylor + Cynthia

Tears flowed freely at Taylor and Cynthia's wedding, from the first look to the moment Taylor saw her walking down the aisle to the heartfelt speeches that happened during the reception. These two started dating less than a year ago, but they immediately knew they wanted to spend their lives together. On a beautiful fall day they pledged to do just that, and their love was obvious from the moment they first laid eyes on each other all the way until the last dance.

The wedding itself carried beautiful touches of sparkly gold for Cynthia's fun personality to a classic navy palette, with adorable gold bottles decorating the sanctuary and an all-white bridal bouquet that was a knockout despite the limitations of finding flowers after a hurricane! There was not a cloud in the sky all day, and the sun wrapped Taylor and Cynthia with warmth as they shared a sweet first look at Regent University, where her father has worked for over 20 years.

Their ceremony was centered around not just their love for each other, but their mutual love for God and their desire to have Him first in their relationship. It was a beautiful way to start a marriage, and I was honored to be a part of it...

Ashley is not someone who likes to be the center of attention. She is the cheerleader and encourager to her friends and family alike, but rarely steps into the spotlight. This was evident on her wedding day as she carefully steamed her friend's dresses, putting thought and care into everyone else though it was her big day. Trey, meanwhile, is a friend to all, kind and so much fun to be around. Together they quietly become the life of the party, and when they're with each other it seems just right on them.

There was so much anticipation in the morning as Ashley and her ladies got ready. Layers upon layers of fabric adorned her amazing wedding gown, and the light lavender bridesmaid's dresses were gorgeous against the greenery at Cedar Point Country Club. Green, lavender, and white bouquets in the hands of each bridesmaid finished the look perfectly. The inside of the reception hall, decorated with sweet pearls and floral centerpieces, was just waiting for a party that centered around two people in love...

Virginia Beach Oceanfront Wedding | Hampton Roads Wedding Photographer | Rob & Lisa

A year later, we met on a gorgeous end-of-summer day in Virginia Beach, right on the oceanfront, to celebrate Rob, Lisa, and the boys officially becoming a family. By this time, many of their friends have become our friends and we hold all four of them so close to our hearts. The day was simply beautiful from beginning to end, but my favorite part was heading back out to the beach right as the sun was setting to take pictures not just of the bride and groom, but their family of four as well.
