Run With Us to This Sunny Handmade Wedding

Monday, January 27, 2020 Portsmouth, Virginia

We firmly believe in shared values and interests being a bedrock for a solid marriage, so it’s always a fun tidbit when a couple’s interests are running marathons and rugged maniac races! For Marissa and Mark, this mutual love of endurance sports is just one important thing they have in common in addition to gorgeous smiles and bringing out the best in each other.

We love early summer weddings at the Woman's Club of Portsmouth, and this mixed blues and soft greens color palette of a celebration is no exception. Aurelia Studios photographed details from the too-cute-for-words chalkboard signs the ring bearers carried down the aisle to a decked-out handmade dessert table that had us drooling! Because they wanted to focus on its being a family-centered wedding, it was especially meaningful that Marissa’s brother was the officiant and her Dad created the centerpieces. Simply chic and joy-filled, we adore their personalized vow books, Mark's handsome blue suit, and Marissa's lovely music-themed tattoos highlighted by her gown's statement keyhole back.

Lace up your fanciest running shoes and grab some Gatorade as you scroll your way through a gorgeous celebration of Mark and Marissa's wedding day!
