Julie & Jerry - An Elopement at Norfolk Botanical Garden

Norfolk Botanical Garden Elopement-107.jpg

Julie & Jerry are adventurers. She lived in California. He lived in Virginia. And they met on the first day of a whitewater rafting trip at the Grand Canyon. The next sixteen days were filled with camping, hiking, swimming, and exploring the canyon. They enjoyed each other's company just as much as they enjoyed their beautiful surroundings. Maybe even more.

A year later, they were both on the same trip again. But this time, the 16 days felt like 16 dates and they soon found themselves making plans to live on the same side of the country. And then Jerry asked Julie to marry him. And they chose to say their vows at the Norfolk Botanical Garden, a place they love to explore together.
