Jessica & David - Summer Wedding at Norfolk Botanical Garden

A cold drink in one hand and a crab cake in the other. In a beautiful flower garden. Surrounded by their friends and family. That was exactly where Jessica & David wanted to be.

Jessica & David wanted a colorful summer wedding full of wildflowers. They wanted to dine under cafe lights as the sun set. Add in a preppy striped summer suit, a colorful bouquet, and floral napkins sewn by the bride and her mother, and you've got a recipe for a perfect garden wedding.

But what Jessica & David wanted more than any of the little details was to enjoy their wedding day with their guests. From a toast with friends while getting ready to cocktail hour with their guests by the perennial garden fountain. And it was a beautiful day from start to finish.

Jessica & David chose a beautiful reading for their ceremony, The Art Of A Good Marriage
by Wilferd Arlan Peterson. I love the emphasis that being the right partner is more important that marrying the right partner.

How cute are their flower girl and ring bearer? They were my little buddies all day!
