Sometimes weather doesn’t cooperate. Shannon + Brian’s wedding at the Oceanaire Resort Hotel in Virginia Beach was one of those days. It sprinkled during the ceremony but that didn’t stop these two from saying “I do” on the beach, over looking the ocean, under the most gorgeously decorated arch! And then the rains came. I am not sure what would have happened if the day was not being organized by Sunkissed Events. Let me tell you, those ladies are amazing! With the chaos of the rain and people needing to be shifted from one place to another over several floors of a hotel they made it look easy (and I can guarantee it was not a small task). Unfortunately, due to the pouring rain, portrait time was cut very short. However, these two had already set up another session this spring and I can not wait to get them back in front of my lens and spend extra time capturing the sweetness they have for each other!
Despite the weather, the ceremony and reception were wonderful and their guests looked like they were having a great time. My absolute favorite part of the day was seeing grandma and grandpa dancing. I was a little emotional behind my camera watching them. Shortly after, I was heading to the restroom and grandma was in front of me. She made a comment to me that that was so much fun and they use to dance all the time together. So touching and so very sweet!
Shannon + Brian, thank you for allowing me to be part of your special day. Can’t wait to see the two of you again this spring!
