Taken at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. This shoot was so much fun!!
Dedicated to the wonderful years Jesse & I have went through.
To all the changes (i.e. hair color haha), challenges, and triumphs; I hope there are many more ♥
This is definitely the dress.
I am so happy with my purchase. It was the 3rd dress I tried on at Maya Couture in Norfolk. I went with my parents and they LOVED it on me :)
It's "Kendra" by Maggie Sottero (Shown in Alabaster, I ordered it in Diamond White)
This is me in the Sample Dress :) I bought a different veil that was shorter.
The week after my dress arrived. Still needs lots of alterations and of course, pressing!
Save the Dates are all sent! I ordered 100 of these large magnets for only $54! Really hard to beat that. Great quality too. I really ♥ Vistaprint.

Location: Downtown Norfolk, Va
Photographer: George Boneillo
Here are some old pictures of Jesse and I taken about 7 months after we were engaged. George was a photography student at Old Dominion University looking to build his portfolio. I think he did pretty good for being a nonprofessional! (Definitely lots of kissy faces during this shoot ♥)
**Note** I look different not only because of my brown (close to orange) hair but also because I was definitely 15-20 lbs heavier a couple years ago!
