Ben & Brittany – Norfolk Yacht Club Wedding

First Presbyterian Church Wedding

 Norfolk Yacht Club Wedding

I remember when Brittany first called me.  I immediately liked her.  Not only was she friendly and sweet but she was so genuine.  I remember asking her how Ben proposed and I remember her drawing me in.  The proposal didn’t go as planned, however, it couldn’t have been more perfect for the two of them.

In Brittany’s own words…

“Well first, I was totally clueless because the whole weekend was under the premise that we were celebrating my birthday. Ben surprised me and took me up to Irvington, VA (up on the Northern Neck) where we stayed at a beautiful, old historic Bed and Breakfast called the Hope & Glory. On the last night we were there, Ben told me that we were going to dinner. I thought that seemed normal, so I got all dolled up for dinner while he was “running birthday errands”. It was raining outside, so he had to make a plan B (which he did not have) and coordinate it with the Bed and Breakfast owner all unbeknownst to clueless me. He ended up taking me down the road to a little marina behind a resort, where there was a table with candles, wine, and cheese in an old refurbished (covered) oyster boat that was docket. After we had been there for about 5 minutes, I sat down because my heels were killing my feet already. He stood up, asked me to dance (even though there was no music), so it ultimately was just us holding each other, swaying with the boat in the rain, and he dropped down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I think I said yes, but I’m not sure because I started sobbing with overwhelming joy (think: ugly cry, not cute feminine tears). Thankfully, my wonderful fiance was a few steps ahead of me, and had a hidden camera recording the whole thing so we would never forget it…I still ugly cry every time we watch it.”

These two married this past Saturday.  The day was gorgeous and it was the sweetest day!  Brittany was full of joy as her bridesmaids surrounded her with love.  Ben was all dapper in his suit waiting for that moment that he would see his beautiful bride walk down the aisle.

During our engagement session with them we spent a couple of hours getting to know them.  They are both fun and again very genuine.  However, those house equate to nothing on who these two individuals are.  Listening to guest and after guest, the pastor and the Dads go on and on about these two really confirmed in Luke & I that they are truly each others soul mate.  I loved what Ben’s Dad said about them at one point. He was listing the qualities of Ben and then of Brittany.  He said that it might sound as if he is talking about the same person.  And perhaps he is because because they were made to be one.

Their day was filled with laughter and joyful tears.  Luke & I couldn’t have asked for a more joyous wedding to kick off our wedding season!  Congratulations Ben & Brittany!  We love you guys!!!  xoxo
