Elopements, Weddings

May 15, 2017

Norfolk Wedding Photographer | Norfolk Botanical Gardens Elopement | Eric + Mary

Sometimes, I get extra lucky and get to see some of my families more than once in a short period of time.  And thats the case for this hilarious family.  I saw them earlier this year to celebrate little Emmett’s first year birthday and now we were getting together to celebrate his mommy and daddy as they said I Do!  I love that Eric and + Mary opted to elope with just their family at the beautiful Norfolk Botanical Gardens in Virginia.  There were 10 of us total and it was the sweetest day ever.  If you don’t already know these two families, I apologize because they are awesome!  I always feel like a family friend and spend most of the time, excuse my language, talking shits and giggles.  Its never a dull moment with them!
Mother Nature her self held off on her storms so these two could have perfect weather for their first look, ceremony and portraits.  I crap you not, the moment we were dropped back off in the parking lot, it started to rain!  Talk about perfect timing! And to talk about some not so perfect timing – it was funny actually, Eric technically got a glimpse of his girl as he was pulling in because he arrived earlier than we planned so their first look was extra sweet and giggly.  Its always such an honor to get to witness each of my couples exchange their vows and these two were nothing short of beautiful to document.  Lots of favorites, as always because I am such a sucker for my clients.  They are so good to me!
