Shifting Sands Virginia Beach Wedding John + Windy
Shifting Sands Wedding
It’s been a while since we’ve had the privilege of photographing a Shifting Sands Wedding. Although the ceremony & reception was at Shifting Sands, we started the day out in Sandbridge at a rental house John & Windy rented. We were so excited to be a part of John & Windy’s day. We also couldn’t wait to see Tacuma & Kendall, one of our past couple’s. They recently opened their own wedding planning business, Mahogoney Hill Weddings & they’ve been rocking it so well that we’ve been referring them to our brides and grooms.
Beach House Arrival
As we arrived at the little house in Sandbridge & said our hello’s to Tacuma & Kendall we were greeted by John who was standing ready on the front porch. I made my way up to the second floor to find the most perfect bride getting her hair & makeup done. I remember Justin, Windy’s cousin, sitting on the bed jumping up ready to help me at any request. If you are reading this Justin, thank you! The weather was so perfect for a May wedding.
My Favorite Part
Something that I loved about this day was how special John & Windy’s first look was. Even though they chose to do a first look, John cried as Windy came down the aisle to the altar. I think some brides get nervous that they might miss that magical moment if they choose to do a first look, but John did not. The way John responded as Windy came down the aisle proved to me you can do a First Look & still get the reaction you want. John knew the special gem he was getting. Even though he already saw her at their first look it was still special as she walked the aisle.
John + Windy
John & Windy are such a special couple. The love they both share for each other overflows. You could see it on their faces all day. It’s truly been a joy getting to know them. They both make you feel like family, which in our opinion is the best kind of couple. We are so grateful we got to be a part of their day.
To John & Windy, thank you beyond words for allowing us the privilege of photographing your perfect (in our opinions) Shifting Sands Wedding. It was a joy! We hope that you guys won’t be strangers & that we’ll get to share in the beautiful memories you both will create together. We hope you love these photos as much as we do. Enjoy!
