Marine Country Club Wedding
It was a perfectly sunny day for a July wedding at the Two Rivers Country Club. Kate got ready with family and friends as they sipped mimosa’s and chatted about past adventures together. Kate slipped away to read a sweet note from Tyler after getting into her beautifully beaded Sottero gown from Urban Set Bride. The emotions began to flow as she headed to her first look with Tyler. She walked through the beautiful marigolds and tapped her Marine on the shoulder. As he turned around, the tears welled up with joy at seeing each other.
As guests arrived to their ceremony overlooking the water, the cutest little usher directed them to their seats. Amidst sunshine and sunflowers, Kate walked down the aisle to her smiling groom. The shared their handwritten vows and exchanged rings as Tyler got a little choked up. This day had been anxiously awaited by both amidst multiple cross country visits and deployments. With a big kiss she became Mrs. Chauvin or “Mrs. Gumbo” as the groomsmen lovingly referred to her during the reception, as Tyler hails from Louisiana.
With a toast from Mr. McBeath of “Laissez les bons temps rouler”, the reception began with dinner and lots of dancing. Kate had told me repeatedly throughout the day that it felt like it was all just going to fast. We know that feeling all to well and when she mentioned it during her sunset portraits, we made sure to carve out a little time for her and Tyler to just soak in the moment of being newly married as they watched the sun set over the James River, wrapped in each others arms.
