Casual and Sweet Sandbridge Wedding by Rob Garland Photographers

Captured by Rob Garland Photographers, Staci and Robyn chose "comfortable, fun, and beach chic" for their special day's vision. It was a day of community celebration where everyone was on an elevated level-- laughing together, crying together. "It was a circle of love and everyone was lifted up by it, and we were at the center of it," Robyn reminisced.

Like most all beach ceremonies, their original plan was to have the ceremony on the beach, but it was an exceptionally windy weekend, so an outdoor event was not an option. Fortunately, the beach house they rented for the reception was a beautiful, open space lined with tall windows with a lovely ocean view. It was the perfect space for the energy and emotion of their loved ones-- and the strong winds ended up being a beautiful blessing.

They loved Sandbridge because of wonderful past family vacations and the laid-back community, but now they have written a whole new chapter to add to their book of Virginia Beach memories.
