Woman's Club of Portsmouth Wedding Photography
This month my calendar is packed with weddings, and I've got a beauty to kick it off! Mallory & David were married on Saturday in a lovely church ceremony, followed by a fantastic reception at the Woman's Club of Portsmouth.
It's hard to believe that it has been more than two years since Mallory and David booked their wedding photography package with me. These two young ODU grads impressed me from the start with their fun-loving spirit. They are hard-working, goal oriented professionals who always stay focused on their faith, their families and their commitment to one another. They also love to celebrate and enjoy life together. I knew their wedding would be full of sweet, joyful moments. Today I'm sharing some peeks from their gorgeous day!
Everyone gathered at the Woman's Club for hair, make up, and wardrobe changes. The Woman's Club has a great space for wedding party prep, and lovely outdoor space for portraits too.
Mallory and David opted to do a First Look before their ceremony. They were so happy that they planned this special time into their day (I was too). We were able to capture some sweet moments for them, and they were relieved to have the tension and emotional first look out of the way, so they could focus on having fun with their guests.
It also allowed time for outdoor group portraits, which would have been problematic with the rain later in the day.
After the first look, it was off to the church for the ceremony!
They did it! Officially Mr. & Mrs. Eason, they head of to the festivities to celebrate!
First dances and parent dances always give me all the feels. <3
At sunset, we snuck away for a few bride and groom portraits down by the river, and then the party continued into the night.
The best man and maid of honor gave heartfelt toasts for their besties.
Finally, guests lined up for the big exit, waving ribbon wands and sending the newlyweds off with love and well wishes.
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Eason! I know you will have many happy years together as husband and wife. I can't wait to follow along on your journey, as I am certain you will accomplish great things together! Best wishes!! - Melissa
