Nikki & James ~ Half Moone Celebration Center Wedding

If I had to describe Nikki & James in one word, it would be love. And not just their love for each other. Love for their families. Love for Jesus. The entire wedding day was an outpouring of love from everyone for them and from them for everyone there.

The first look is always a favorite of mine. And this one was no different. Watching Nikki & James realize that the day was finally here. They were finally getting married. They couldn't stop smiling. And then they took a moment to pray and ask for God's help and blessing on this day and I had to catch my breath.

This is one special couple, ya'll. And they had one spectacular day.

Every time I see this shot by my wonderful second shooter Becca, I just die!

We stopped at the Norfolk Pagoda for a few quick pictures. It's one of my favorite spots to shoot because it's so versatile!

How gorgeous is the Half Moone? It's a top notch location for a downtown Norfolk wedding!

 I love those first "we're married" moments!

We were running a bit behind, but I'm so glad Nikki and James made time for these shots!

I love it when the bride and groom break it down. So many couples barely touch the dance floor all night.

All the best to you, Nikki & James!
