Romantic Handmade Gold Virginia Beach Wedding

Alicia and Jordan's relationship started as casual acquaintances because they had a lot of the same friends, one of which thankfully decided to give things a little nudge. The pair discovered a mutual love for travel and a natural chemistry together, and it wasn't long before they were planning a dream handmade wedding at the Lesner Inn in Virginia Beach. With a gorgeous modern lace, elegant open back wedding dress, a pair of sparkly high heels, and the perfect Dolce & Gabbana perfume, Alicia was more than ready to meet her groom on their special day.

With a navy blue, blush, and gold color palette, there were glittery DIY elements added throughout the reception like the sparkling "bride" sign that hung on her gold chiavari chair and the new Mr. and Mrs. sign making their sweetheart table extra sweet. Guests were asked to sign a black chalkboard guestbook globe (a nod to their love of travel!). The newlyweds' name adorned the cake as a shimmery topper and small blue flowers peeked out of the golden bottle centerpieces. Caitlin Gerres Photography captured the most beautiful and joyful moments as Alicia and Jordan celebrated the start of their new life together!
