Oh Virginia! Adryan and Tom got the one June day in Virginia where it was NOT humid. It was PERFECT for a beach wedding! So much so that some of the ladies were saying that it was a big chilly by the end of the ceremony. I finally got some perfect blowy light and some light wind to really show off how gorgeous this was couple was. Adryan’s mermaid dress, on the beach, made her look like a disney princess, which was fitting as the reception’s theme was Disney (and their first dance was Kiss The Girl). It was every little girl’s dream, and many big girls!
Adryan and Tom planned out the day to fit them just right. They did their first look just for them. Tom waited on the bridge over the duns for Adryan. After some time alone they met their puppies and got some cuddles with them. Those dogs were so happy to see them! Adryan had her grandmother with her for almost all the important moments, she might as well have been a bridesmaid! Their reception was decked out in pictures of Adryan and Ryan, many of them being at Disney! I just love it when couples are true to who they are and have their wedding completely about their personality!
I especially love it when I see those couples surrounded by those who love them so much. I was so blessed to see Adryan and Tom truly adored by their family and friends. It is something they will remember about their day for forever. I think sometimes when I get invited to a wedding, I forget about the importance of what it means to actually go and be present with the bride and groom. I just assume my presence really don’t matter, but it does, and the bride and groom feel it when you show up and enjoy their special day with them. I remember looking around the room at my own wedding and seeing my friends and family from all corners of my life in the same room. It was really important to me. I so glad Adryan and Tom had that!
