So, for Jen and Mike, this wasn’t a destination wedding… they’ve been living in Virginia Beach as Mike is in the Navy. But for most everyone else, it was a vacation. So, Jen & Mike got married the day after Mike’s commissioning (google it, I did!), and now they’re in Newport until they’re stationed in Hawaii! I know, rough life for them.
Lovely, fun, and rowdy… those words pretty much sum up this wedding. Since everyone else was on vacation, people really let loose. No one is trying to sneak out early because they have to work the next day. Destination weddings are fun like that
Here’s a selection of some of my favorite photos from the day:
To maximize the time on the wedding day, we arranged for a day-after shoot with Mike & Jen… it was supposed to be all on the beach, but it was cold and rainy. But, honestly, the Plan B was one of the coolest shoots we’ve ever done. We went to the aquarium, and despite being surrounded by 4 million little kids, we managed to get some amazing photos. It’s kind of awesome what a bride can get away with.
