Norfolk Botanical Gardens Wedding Photographer

  • Erik + Holly

“Boy” and he calls her “girl”. You have to hear it to understand how cute it is. It fits them. Erik and Holly are such a great example of what it looks like to have a strong friendship as the foundation of a relationship.  When I met with Holly a few weeks ago to discuss wedding details and hear about the big day, I loved hearing all the ideas that Erik came up with! I was so impressed! He was very much involved in planning and I think that is AWESOME! … and what makes it even better is that his ideas are awesome too! The details of Holly and Erik’s wedding day were amazing! They put so much love and thought into everything that they did and it was perfect. Holly is super creative and it showed in every part of their day!

I would never have this at my wedding because it doesn’t look like me but if you are someone who loves pinks and reds, I HIGHLY recommend…

A Bride and Groom Shower

  • A Bride and Groom Shower

… to feel more and more real! 10.10.10 has seemed so long away this whole year… until this summer. With less than two months to go, we are scrambling. We’re trying to get home improvement projects done…. now on TWO houses and we’re still planning details and working with vendors. It’s coming together! With every little step, it is feeling more and more real! Last night, some of our closest family friends got together and threw us a Bride and Groom shower. It was wonderful!!! Church friends that we have known our whole lives came together to celebrate and shower us with gifts! Talk about fun!!!
