Capri & Aaron’s Wedding at the Hermitage Museum and Gardens

Seriously – what a gorgeous day! Capri & Aaron decided to have their wedding at the Hermitage Museum and Gardens in Norfolk, Virginia. If you’ve never been there, you’re missing out! This wedding venue feels like you have stumbled into Europe right here in the heart of Hampton Roads.

When you arrive at the venue, you drive down a long tree lined drive-way and the landscape opens up to a breathtaking ivy covered brick Estate. I can see exactly why they the chose the Hermitage as their venue!

The girls first started their day by getting ready at the Main in Downtown, Norfolk. I walked into the room and it was buzzing with happy energy! Capri was finishing her make-up, and I was so excited to see her put on her dress. Capri chose to finish getting ready at the Hermitage, in their bridal room. The elegant vintage touches in the room went perfectly with the entire feel of the wedding day.

Capri & Aaron decided to do a first look.

Their first look was perfectly private, tucked back in one of the gardens. Capri & Aaron were SO excited to see each other – I love the expressions on both of their faces during that first moment of seeing each other.

The ceremony took place under the giant trees of the Hermitage Museum & Gardens.

Chairs full of their friends and family surrounded the couple as they entered into marriage under the shade of the trees. I’m pretty sure we all shed a tear – because Capri & Aaron’s love story is incredible. They have been together since high school. It’s that real deal, head over heels in love type of love – and I loveeee it!

Yes, even me – behind my camera had to wipe away a few tears!

I can say with confidence that I’ve made lifelong friends in Capri & Aaron, and it was truly an honor to be able to preserve their wedding day through photography. They are a beautiful couple inside and out, and I wish them nothing but happiness in their marriage and lives!

Here are some of my favorite images from their wedding day, enjoy!
