Originally planning a wedding of about 100 guests, Kaylie and Derek didn’t let COVID-19 get in the way of their big day. Surrounded by close family and friends, Kaylie and Derek kissed their way into forever at the Lesner Inn on May 1 2021 overlooking the Lynnhaven River.
We were so excited to be their Day of Coordinators! Every meeting together was filled with laughter and we just couldn’t wait to see everything come together! As part of being their day of coordinators, we get to set up all the décor and details and man oh man were we excited for this spring look! Every time we opened a box we couldn’t wait to show everyone else in the office! I mean just look how AMAZING it looks! Plus, who doesn’t love donuts for an afternoon wedding or a photo booth by Astro Entertainment?
First look or not? I don’t know about you but I love a good first look! Not only can you get all those bridal photos out of the way but you also get to capture this intimate moment of just you and your loved one. You get to just stay in the moment and really be with each other because it’s just you and your significant other. No one else is around……well except your photographer.
One of my favorite first looks is the father-daughter first look! It’s so sweet and beautiful. Remember, it’s a big day for parents too. The day where they see their little one, who used to waddle in diapers or who they cheered for at a sports game or theater performance in high school now in a bridal dress about to walk down an aisle to start their journey with someone else. It’s a lot to process and it’s emotional but they’re happy tears always.
Because of COVID 19 restrictions, Kaylie & Derek opted to do a live feed for guests who couldn’t attend. After they walked the aisle as the new Mr & Mrs Kaylie & Derek Davis, they were able to speak to those far away loved ones!
