jessica_ryan_photography_virginia_beach_wedding_hampton_roads_virginia_seabreeze_damn_neck_base_wedding_0918Cody & Marie have a one of a kind love story that began in 1994. Yes, you read that correctly! When Marie thought boys had cooties & Cody thought that, “boys rule & girls drool,” fate was already working in their favor! By chance, or what I like to call fate, their mothers’ met randomly at a pizza hut with their kids in tow, asking each other if they wanted to sit together for dinner because the dining was full. That evening they struck up an instant friendship & kept it through the years even with Cody’s family moving for the military. Eventually they moved back to the Virginia Beach area and ran into each other on their college campus, this time with out their mothers, and quickly became friends. Which led to a relationship, that fate had planned for them all along! I absolutely love this precious detail of their lives because it is clear to see just how much the two of them are meant for each other. The sayings that go like this, “everything happens for a reason,” or “the stars aligned,” are made true by the two of them. Destiny & fate can & should be believed in! 

Those feelings were no different on their wedding day. Amidst torrential rain & tornado warnings that day Marie & Cody kept their spirits up because they were going to marry the love of their lives! Fate was on their side again on their wedding day, giving us perfect breaks in the rain for their first look and bridal party portraits. Then it completely stopped raining when the ceremony was scheduled to start and did not start again until we were back inside for their reception. With two people who love to do everything together and enjoy just being in each other’s company, they weren’t going to let rain get in the way of celebrating their love!

Congratulations to Marie & Cody! I know you both will live a happy life filled with love for each other, because well, fate already decided that when you were kids! Maybe, your mothers’ decided on that too! 😉
