Hurricane Matthew was one of the most intense to hit the Hampton Roads area. In our area and with being on the coast we get warnings of tropical storms and hurricanes often in the early fall but they usually end up being nothing more than a little shower. This would not be the case…this beautiful little family had planned the perfect rustic wedding at Country Villa Inn in Virginia Beach, determined to not let the rain ruin all their planning they went forward on the day. Mother Nature did not cooperate, with a ceremony in the rain and no opportunity for formal portraits guests even had trouble getting home and several vendors couldn’t even make it to the wedding the rain was so bad.
We decided to plan something beautifully bohemian for them for a vow renewal this summer. Low and behold the week of their renewal, rain again! It was so disheartening as the rain started just an hour before we were scheduled to start, the lights even went out while hair and makeup were being done! We are so thankful for the Studio at Chelsea Commons for accommodating us and allowing a little love and joy to be captured for this sweet family whose wedding day was rained out. Not quite backdrop we had in mind, but our bride told us all she wanted were these beautiful moments with her family.
Special thanks to the AMAZING vendors who made this beautiful vision come to life!
