Marie!!!!!!!! Do you know how much I adore you!?!? And of course your groom, too– but I have enjoyed getting to know and spend time with Marie for months up until they said I Do and I enjoyed every minute.

One part of their wedding that sticks out was the Best Man’s speech (Louie’s dad) and he said when they first met Marie he she ALWAYS that happy? Is she really that happy?! I loved hearing that because if that doesn’t sum up her beautiful inside and out blonde sunshine-y self, I don’t know what does! I love happy-go-lucky people and she is one of them ๐Ÿ™‚ Always a joy to be around. Seeing her and Louie on this night was probably one of the cutest things I’d ever seen…they were SO excited the entire time just perfectly content in each other’s company on the most amazing day of their life. THANK YOU for having me! This is only part one! ๐Ÿ™‚

The sun really scared me on this one, I won’t lie! (Everyone knows I’m painfully honest, why not be!?) Most of the time Lesner Inn weddings that I’ve seen are faced perpendicular this particular set up. Since the sun sets on the bay here in Virginia Beach, the sun was setting RIGHT at the beginning on this ceremony and therefore reflecting off of the water. THANK GOODNESS Marie thought to put the beautiful white sheer material on their arch where they stood, or I wouldn’t have gotten the pretty, warm and glowy images of them at the altar that I did! Backlight is nice but sometimes TOO much so her self-made diffuser worked out amazingly for me! ๐Ÿ™‚
