With just two other loved ones in attendance, Melanie dreamed of a personal city chic wedding underneath a willow tree. By getting ready at home surrounded by the things they love, Melanie and Martin made that day about their commitment and new life together. Melanie's son was their bridal party (and rocked out the duties of wedding band protector).
Captured by Bit of Ivory Photography at the Pagoda in Downtown Norfolk, the bride mentioned her favorite memory of that day was a moment being shared between her husband, her son, and herself under the willow tree as they exchanged their wedding vows.
For those also treasuring the more intimate type of wedding day, she offered the following advice: "From the ocean to the bay, from the vineyards to all the beautiful gardens, you can put your personal touch on your wedding day. Your wedding doesn't have to be big to have wonderful memories and beautiful photos."
