Ashley and Mark celebrated their union with friends and family at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. The architecture at the convention center is very modern and the spaces lend themselves to some really unique contemporary photographs. But since Ashley really wanted some natural photographs taken outdoors as well, we used the little bit of greenery outside to create a handful of park like pictures. Inside the ballroom looked spectacular with large centerpieces and canopies lit with blue lighting creating a chic ambiance. And after the party was over, Ashley and Mark climbed into a horse drawn carriage to take them to their hotel at the oceanfront.

My husband and I decided to take a weekend away before my busy season starts. We didn’t want to travel to far from home so we thought we would check out Chincoteaque island on the Eastern Shore. I love the outdoors so I really enjoyed touring nearby Assateague Island National Seashore. The highlight of the trip for me was watching the wild ponies that live on the island.

Dominique and Neil were married at La Galleria in downtown Norfolk and wow what a neat place for an intimate wedding! The inside is reminiscent of old europe with stucco walls, vintage wooden doors and dramatic lighting. This was the perfect setting as Dominique and her family are from England. Adding to the ambience, Vincent Zentner, a local harpist played classical and contemporary music. It really was a beautiful and unique affair.
