Kat & Cindy – The Baja – Sandbridge

Wedding at The Baja in Sandbridge:

Kathryn & Cynthia picked The Baja Restaurant in beautiful Sandbridge to exchange their vows. The getting ready part of the day began at their rented three-story beach house in Sandbridge with¬†all of their family and wedding party. Kathryn & Cynthia (Kat and Cindy) are a very laid back and relaxed couple. When we met them during our initial new client meeting, they fell in love with our 1970 VW bus and asked if they could use it as a prop for their wedding. We of course said yes, so if you are wondering why in the world is a VW bus part of the ceremony and wedding photos this is why, I mean really, why not? ūüôā

This was actually my first LGBT wedding, and I totally had a blast. These two are so much fun! Did I mention they have the cutest doggies? Their three doggie children had formal wedding attire as well and although they were not part of the actual ceremony, Kat and Cindy wanted to make sure that I got lots of pictures of them in their cute wedding outfits.

Kat and Cindy had their first look at the beach and we were able to get some cute pictures before we headed over to the venue for the ceremony. The ceremony took place at The Baja overlooking the bay on this bright sunny afternoon. It was a very heart warming ceremony with written vows, laughs and lots of tears. We took a few more pictures with the VW bus right before the sun was setting and then moved on to the reception where there was quite a memorable grand introduction. Some of the best people decided to do a funny dance when they were introduced, one gal even did the worm! The evening continued with the first dance. I always get a tad emotional at weddings, but this one really got me going. The brides had such an emotional embrace during their first dance and as you looked around, everyone in the room was crying. After their song had ended, the wedding party all came in with a group hug and the tears continued. Seriously, there was not a dry eye in the place, including me, I was a mess. The evening continued with the dances with their parents, a great dinner, emotional toasts from the best people and flower girls, a fun cake cutting and a dual bouquet and garter toss. This was such a fun crowd that loved to dance, in fact the party continued to the wee hours of the night, definitely later than any wedding I have ever been to! Congrats to Kat and Cindy, thank you so much for choosing me to be part of your big day!

A special thanks to Jimmy at The Baja in Sandbridge, HeyDJ for providing the great music, Norfolk Wholesale Florist and Plaza Bakery.
