Modern Tropical Virginia Beach Wedding

When the in-house designer at Maya Couture gets married, you know her bridal gown is going to be nothing short of amazing! With a college degree in fashion, Anzen actually sketched and designed her own wedding gown and had Cheryl, the bridal boutique's seamstress, bring it to life through fabric, stitches, and heart. (A fun little tidbit is that this bride never even tried on a designer gown until she decided she also wanted a reception dress, and Maggie Sottero fit the bill with her understandably high standards!)

To tie in their Hawaiian engagement (and future honeymoon) memories, Anzen and Jay dreamed of a tropical-inspired wedding day celebrated with their closest loved ones, and it was wonderfully captured by DCPG Photography and coordinated by CMT Event Planning.

Out of the whole day though, this couple's favorite memory was Father Tim's homily as it was so personal and told of their story together. And you can't have a much more beautiful memory than that.
