A Gorgeous Ivory & Blush Wedding in Canada with a Brownie Sundae Dessert

Today's wedding couple, Kate and Trevor went to a little dock on the Detroit River for their big reveal, aka the "first look". Then, creative shots were taken around the riverfront and on an old closed down golf course. The couple married on a top level terrace overlooking the Detroit River and performed a "knot" ceremony. For those that may not know, this means the bride and groom tie a knot that is impossible to undo . . . therefore putting the phrase "tie the knot" into action. The ceremony even included a Dr. Suess reading. At the reception, the chair covers and centerpieces mimicked the brides wedding gown and there was even a super elegant candy table with the guests being treated to a brownie sundae for their dessert.

A Virginia Beach Wedding with a Stunning Brooch and Fabric Floral Bouquet

Today's real wedding of Ashley and Jason took place at Cavalier Yacht and Country Club in Virginia Beach and they said their vows at Trinty Church with a super fun confetti filled exit. Between the ceremony and reception, Ross Costanza Photography headed with the bride and groom to the historic Cavalier Hotel at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront for some great photo opportunities. I love the lace wrapped fabric bouquet with rhinestone/brooch centers. And, the couples first look was actually a first "touch" as they reached around a door and held hands. This is super sweet and I think it makes the walk down the aisle even more exciting.
