Preppy Pink Wedding at Norfolk Botanical Gardens Megan + Dallas | Norfolk, VA

Megan and Dallas are truly a special couple. They are both photographers (and now officially a husband and wife team!!) and working with them as been such a joy and an honor. They had so many incredible speeches and guests celebrating with them on their big day, but the thing EVERYONE said is how much they radiate JOY. These two are a bright, shining light for Jesus and I feel so lucky to have been their wedding photographer!

Megan got ready at her family’s beach house in Norfolk before heading over to the gorgeous Norfolk Botanical Gardens. This is the place that they first met, and the place that Dallas used to work…so it was special for more reason than one! The garden is currently celebrating an event called “Lantern Asia” – which was supposed to be cleared up before the wedding, but the extended it through Megan and Dallas’s wedding date. All of the gardens were adorned with HUGE light-up sculptures…and these two were such champs about it! We managed to photograph the entire day while avoiding the “Lantern Asia” decor…I bet you can’t even tell it was going on!! 🙂

Megan and Dallas, thank you for being such a light and a joy to work with. I feel so lucky to know both of you, and even luckier to be the one capturing these memories for you. I hope you enjoy some of my favorites and have an AMAZING time on your honeymoon!
