Hey, friends! I’m so excited to share images from a recent wedding I did that took place at Culpepper Barn in Virginia Beach, which was obviously the PERFECT location since the newlyweds had a romantic, rustic-inspired wedding! Nicole and Wesley thought this thing through from beginning to end, and there wasn’t a shortage of dreamy, gorgeous moments. Their wedding was a total DIY wedding and they pulled it off beautifully! Nicole wanted a few things for her wedding day: she wanted to get married in a barn, wear her cowboy boots, and have FUN!
Nicole and Wesley met in 2017 through mutual friends and began dating later that year. The two enjoy date nights at local breweries and are always on the hunt for a great distillery too! They love football and spending time with family and friends. They also share a deep faith and it was so evident during their ceremony how important this is in their relationship. The exchanged some of the sweetest, most heart-felt vows and it was hard to fight the tears!
I loved spending the day with Nicole and Wesley, and their family and friends! It was such a fun and happy day and I am thrilled for you see it!
Nicole’s bouquet was extra special. Beneath the flowers was her grandmother’s Bible. Nicole’s mother and grandmother were both married carrying this Bible and it was so important to Nicole that she carry on the tradition. Norfolk Wholesale did an amazing job and securing the Bible and making it easy for Nicole to carry.
There’s something special about sunsets in Pungo, and Nicole knew that!! When we first started talking about her wedding day, she said that taking portraits during the gorgeous sunset in Pungo was a top priority. And I couldn’t agree more! I am so thankful for a beautiful, summer evening and that gorgeous sunset glow!
Nicole and Wesley, I am beyond thrilled to have been a part of your beautiful wedding!! You two are so incredibly sweet and have the biggest hearts!! I hope this new adventure gets better each and every day!! Cheers to you both!!
