Intimate Summer Wedding at The Obici House Courtney + Ross | Suffolk, Virginia


This wedding day has been a LONG time coming!!! Courtney and Ross’s big day was originally scheduled for April 2020. When that date obviously could not happen…they rescheduled not once, not twice…but 3 TIMES!! They patiently waited for this day to arrive for over one full year…and I think it made it that much sweeter. Because their wedding date got rescheduled so many times, Courtney and Ross actually legally got married last year…but they still chose to use this date to have a full ceremony and celebrate with all of the people they love most. They changed their guest list from 120+ to less than 40…and it was the SWEETEST day celebrating such a sweet love with their closest friends and family.

Courtney and Ross chose to have a day that perfectly matched their personalities: relaxed, simple and FUN! They both love to live life to the fullest and the way they love each other is so special. They are truly the best of friends, and there were so many happy tears throughout the day that showed how much everyone loves them together. Everyone was just SO excited for this day to come to life! And, even more special: Ross and Courtney just found out they are PREGNANT! They are expecting a sweet little baby early 2022 and it was such a fun surprise to add announcement photos into portrait time!

Courtney and Ross: Congratulations on ALL of the exciting things unfolding in your lives! I truly feel so lucky to have been the one there to capture this beautiful day unfold, and I adore you both and the way you love one another. I hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites. 3rd time’s the charm!

Ross and Courtney are both huge coffee lovers, and they chose to give their guests coffee beans as their favors. So I had to use them in some detail photos!

This balloon room was such a fun touch for guests to see some of their favorite photos!

The ONESIE!!! Such a cute addition to details!

LOVED the back of this dress!

First look time!!!

Love this one!

SO special!!!

This may have been one of my favorite parts of this day…flower grannys!!! Instead of flower girls! Haha!!
