Jamie & Bert | Norfolk Botanical Garden | Wedding Day Recap

Jamie and Bert are married!!! Saturday was the most wonderful day and I got to spend it with the most wonderful people! Surrounded by family and friends, they were married in the Butterfly Garden at Norfolk Botanical Garden. Dinner and dancing followed (outside) at Baker Hall Terrace. Did I mention it was outside? Anyone remember how hot it was on Saturday? And that there was a torrential downpour on most of Hampton Roads? Well, much to our surprise, it did not rain on us AND the clouds brought the temps down to a tolerable level. Prior to the ceremony, I just knew the guests would race inside as soon as the reception began. Fortunately, everyone continued to enjoy the evening under the stars! How could they not? Just WAIT til you see what Classy Covers did with the lighting over Baker Hall Terrace.

For now, enjoy my iPhone snaps of the day! Professional photos from Caitlin Gerres Photography will be out soon! You won't want to miss them!!

Jamie and Bert, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for letting me be part of your wedding day! Our time together was short (just 8 weeks!!), but I got to learn so many cool things about you and your relationship. Best of luck in your new life together in DC!
