Virginia Beach Waterfront Wedding: Allison and Joel

Allison and Joel spent the better part of last year renovating their entire home. Their home that they are so proud of, that they are creating a life together in. When I asked where their wedding venue was it was a no-brainer for them! They choose to marry each other surrounded by tree stumps and lit candles in their backyard. Allison’s daughter Ellie cried happy tears behind her as she heard her mother read her vows to Joel. Allison and Ellie shared tissues between each other and then Joel took Ellie’s hand and got down on one knee. He said out loud the sweetest and most heartwarming vows to Ellie as he placed a ring on her finger. Allison listened and looked on proudly at the two of them as this took place.

It was raining so they choose to have their ceremony under their tent and everyone came to work for their plan B, putting boards down so people could still walk through out the tent. After raining all day long and they said I Do, the rain suddenly stopped. I took Allison and Joel down to their lake and I was stunned at how the sun came out for them. Allison said without hesitation, “That’s because of my Dad.” I truly believe that it was and I was touched that Allison believed that too! I absolutely love when you can tell that the man just adores, loves and cherishes his wife and Joel exemplified that! He held onto her any chance that he got, looking as if he never wanted to let go. When Allison asked him to pick her up for our last few photographs he obliged and when his boutonniere pierced his skin he still did not let go of Allison! 😉 He took care of her and let her back down gently and then reacted to the momentarily pain that it caused. Allison and I laughed, I do not think Joel did though! Their entire wedding day was full of love, special moments, both emotional & beautiful!  I cried several times behind my camera because it was just so beautiful the way this family loved and the way they all came together. Congratulations to Allison, Joel and Ellie!
