Coral and Turquoise Water Table Wedding by Amanda Manupella Photography

July 14, 2014

Being born and raised in Hampton Roads makes it an obvious place for couples to get married, but add in a proposal on a boat, and it seals the deal! To ask Lauren to be his wife, Donnie strategically placed a box with a note on the hook and threw it in the water when she wasn't looking. He then placed his iPhone in a cup holder to record the moment she reeled in her line. There were reportedly several choice words used as Lauren was better than speechless. Oh, hello, surprise of your life!

As if to continue the special boat theme, Lauren and Donnie knew they wanted to incorporate the water into their big day. And what better way than having water transportation to your reception venue? After a lovely church ceremony, the bride and groom and their bridal party rode into the marina beside The Water Table, cheering and enjoying the first moments with the Mr. and Mrs.! Thankfully Amanda Manupella Photography was there to capture it all!
