Norfolk and VA Beach Engagement as seen on Hill City BrideThe water lends itself to romance, and whether it’s the lake or the ocean, Virginia is full of opportunities to be waterside. If you adore the water yet don’t want to make it your wedding location, why not consider an oceanside engagement session such as this one that Mitchell and Megan had with Lauren Simmons Photography? From wandering through Norfolk’s Ghent Historic District to ending at Virginia Beach’s Brock Environmental Center, this couple had the perfect mix of both city and sea to compliment their colorful, waterside e-session. Enjoy!

Romantic Colorful Wedding as seen on Hill City Bride

Colorful weddings bring so much joy, and this couple has a cute story behind their meeting. They first met at the gym where Jamie was a CrossFit coach. At first Jamie thought that Glenn was hitting on her (and married), and Glenn thought that Jamie wasn’t very nice. Still, though, there was a little something there. After the workout she invited him to grab a drink. Fast forward a little bit, and Jamie was planning a surprise party for Glenn. He found out about it and turned the tides and used it as an opportunity to surprise Jamie by asking her to marry him. Talk about a few turns of events in their story!

Their wedding day was a sweet celebration with family and friends, many of whom helped make the day beautiful. A friend, Paul, made the movable wall with the doors (take note – it’s beautiful!), and Jamie herself made many of the decor items, including the pinwheel backdrop, which was made from painted window blinds.

The day itself including a little bit of rain, but that didn’t damper anyone’s spirits for this romantic, colorful wedding. Enjoy!

Williamsburg Bookstore Engagment Session as seen on Hill City Bride

I love it when a couple chooses something different for their e-session – especially when it revolves around their interests. Dave and Suzy wanted their personality to shine through during their session with Meredith Ryncarz Photography. And it shows!

Their first date was at a coffee shop (hence the cute coffee images), and Suzy also has a favorite “traveling skirt” that has been with her on all sorts of trips across the globe. How perfect for her to incorporate it into starting her biggest adventure as she and Dave start their new life together?

Their wedding will have a slight nod to JRR Tolkiens books, so a trip to a vintage bookstore in Williamsburg – Mermaid Books – seemed to be the perfect place to snap some images before heading to Colonial Williamsburg. So fun! Enjoy this cute Williamsburg bookstore e-session today.

PS. Be sure to note Suzy’s lovely handcrafted ring by David Holloway Designs.

  • Meredith - Thank you for featuring this sweet couple on your blog today.

I adore these quotes! And this one is oh so true. Once you know you have met “the one”, you want to be with them. Love this quote!
