Meghan & Zach | Norfolk Botanical Garden | Wedding Day Recap

It is a great stressor for any bride: rain. Meghan and Zach had perfectly planned their wedding at Norfolk Botanical Garden. Their ceremony was to be held outside at Renaissance Court, but Mother Nature had other plans. A last minute opportunity to hold it inside Baker Hall proved to be a lovely plan B. Surrounded by a massive bridal party, family, and dear friends, they said their vows as rain pelted the glass roof. It was cozy, comfy, and fit Meghan and Zach's personalities to a T. Both of them handled the changes with such grace. 

The highlight of the day was watching their friends cover them with love and gratitude from the time they arrived to the moment they all loaded on the bus. SEVERAL times throughout the night, I heard people mention how deserving Meghan and Zach were of a long, happy life together. I couldn't agree more! 

I would like to give a shoutout to the entire bridal party! Not only did most of them travel from afar, but all 20 of them were EARLY to rehearsal. Pat yourselves on the back! I love you guys and hope to see y'all at another wedding! 

You'll see the professional photos from Valerie Demo in the future, but for now, enjoy my iPhone snaps from the day.
