As the rain kept trickling from the sky, I was curious to discover how Katherine and Martin’s day might unfold. When I arrived at her parent’s house to capture her while she got ready, she had nothing but a smile across her face. As Katherine sat getting her hair and makeup done, she remained calm and collected with a touch of sweet nervousness. Having met Katherine and Martin back in April for their engagement shoot, I knew the kind of couple these two were. And that’s why I knew Katherine had nothing but joy on this day, because she was going to wed the man that told five years ago on the night they first met, that he was going to marry her. Despite the rain, this day was full of sunshine from the love that these two exude.
Ben and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves as we spent the day with friends and family of Katherine and Martin. And let me tell you, their reception was unlike any other we have ever photographed…I haven’t had that much fun, nor laughed so hard in a long time. Polish weddings are quite the partaaay.
Thank you, Katherine and Martin and congratulations!

Katherine’s bridesmaids were there to make sure she looked even more flawless than she already did…
Martin and his groomsmen got ready in the presidential suite at the Sheraton in Downtown Norfolk.
The beautiful ceremony was held in Virginia Beach at St. John the Apostle Catholic Parish
After the ceremony, we headed to Indian River Plantation for pictures. And would you believe that just as the bridal party stepped out of the limo, it stopped raining? Well, believe it.
Love love the intensity here…
A big thank you to Stephanie of Daevid’s for the spectacular florals.
So sweet, these two…

Anybody could tell by looking at the newlyweds that they had the wedding of their dreams…
And one more…of yours truly…
Congratulations, Katherine and Martin.
