The Yacht Club at Marina Shores
Wedding at The Yacht Club at Marina Shores:
Brittney & Kendall had their wedding and reception at the beautiful Yacht Club at Marina Shores in Virginia Beach. What a gorgeous day for a wedding! Brittney chose bright yellow and grey for her colors. There were cheerful sunflowers in everything from the chairs and tables to the favors and even the brides bouquet! I am a bit partial to sunflowers myself and loved how light and bright it made the venue. For the ceremony these two decided to switch things up a bit and have their grandmothers as the flower girls! How fun! I love to see creative ways to get family members involved in the ceremony. I had to hold back the waterworks when the groom saw his bride walking down the aisle, just seeing his reaction was enough to get me worked up. I can’t explain how things like this remind me of why I love my job, there isn’t a romance movie out there that can compete with a real love story and to top it off, I get to be part of it! How awesome is that?
We took the entire wedding party down to the water for most of our formal pictures. My ideal spot was locked but we made the best of it and got some cute shots down at the dock anyway. I even asked a family if I could come aboard their boat to take pictures and they said yes! So there I was standing on the front of a boat yelling to my wedding party (they were not very close to me at that point) and of course trying to stay stable and not fall in the water with all my gear. It was a fun time!
The rest of the night went by so quickly, from the emotional first dance and mother/son and father/daughter dances, the sweet toasts from the maids of honor and the best man and all the fun the entire wedding had on the dance floor. One of the flower grandmother’s really got down on the dance floor and was so much fun to photograph! What a great wedding and a total blast for all! Thank you so much Brittney & Kendall for having me photograph your big day! Congrats and enjoy! 🙂
