Whitney+Shane: Virginia Farm Wedding

An Elegant Virginia Beach VA Farm Wedding

This stunning couple met on a blind date set up by mutual friends. Whitney knew they had something special from the start. Dinner wrapped up and these two found themselves chatting late into the evening while sitting in Whitney's driveway.

Time passes and love begins to dream about the future. Nothing makes a couple think about love more than Valentine's Day. Unfortunately, Shane & Whitney both had to work on the holiday itself, so they decided to go to Coastal Grill a day later. After a lovely dinner, they headed back home...Whitney could barely get her heels off before Shane popped the question! They spent the rest of the evening calling family and friends to share the great news.

On a beautiful July day, everyone they love gathered on Shane's family farm to share in their vows. Whitney was a vision of loveliness in a beautiful David Tutera gown & Badgley Mischka pumps. She carried her something borrowed, a handkerchief passed down over the years for brides to wear in her family (every bride who used this heirloom has their name printed on the box). Whitney's daughter & Shane's niece took their role as flower girls very seriously. Some say these cuties may have even stolenthe show! Whitney's father escorted her down the aisle and up the stairway of the historic 1794 farm house. Breath-taking is the only description that will do.

 Thunderstorms had threatened the forecast all week, but Shane & Whitney had extra luck on their side. Don, Shane's dad happened to find not one but two 4 leaf clovers the morning of the wedding. He had them pressed and presented them to the couple during his welcome speech at the reception. 

Guests mingled under the trees during cocktail hour and then danced the night away to tunes from the Hotcakes. Laughter and happiness floated through the back yard like bubbles where they were surrounded by lush greenery amidst splashes of grey and blush tones thoughtfully chosen for this special night. It will live in everyone's hearts forever....but especially Whitney and Shane’s.
