Melissa & Nathan

Late Summer Marine Corps Wedding at Amber Grove Inn

Melissa & Nathan! Wow! Their intimate summer wedding at Amber Grove Inn was filled with the most beautiful details and the most heartfelt moments. Throughout the day I think I told Melissa 25 times how beautiful and elegant she looked. Her happiness radiated when she was with Nathan. And the look in his eyes truly showed the amount of love he felt for his bride on their wedding day.

A week before their big day, the forecast looked awful. A hurricane was expected to make landfall here in Virginia on Saturday and we were expected to have flooding into Sunday, their wedding day. I texted Melissa on Tuesday to check in and see what she was thinking about the forecast. She told me “all I can do is pray.”

Well friends, we all know the power of prayer. The hurricane completely moved away from Virginia unfortunately impacting North Carolina severely. Because of this change in the forecast, it barely rained but a few sprinkles during their wedding day. They even had an OUTDOOR ceremony! I felt so incredibly happy for the two of them!

Melissa & Nathan, you both are two very special people! You both are so kind hearted!!! Thank you for allowing me to photograph the biggest day of your life! It was a true honor!
