If you've followed us for a while you know that we cherish families and real moments. Ann and Patrick's wedding was a strong re-enforcement of those core values. For their weekend in Virginia Beach, we were lucky enough to be invited for the rehearsal dinner as guests. We were warmly welcomed into their home by all their family and friends and knew it was going to be a great wedding. With the exception of the impending tropical storm that included blasts of sideways rain and sand powered by 30+ mph winds that forced the ceremony indoors. Still, that didn't stop Ann and Patrick from braving the weather to do their first look and portraits on the beach. The umbrellas were not just for show.
We were amazed at their resilience to not let anything spoil their day and even more impressed with how much love and happiness there was at their ceremony and reception.
