Ashley & Dan | A Shifting Sands Wedding Virginia Beach Virginia Wedding Photographer

Ashley and Dan were married in December at the Shifting Sands in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  They used the holiday season to their advantage and went with beautiful grays and reds for their colors and decorated with snow, holly berries, and garland!  They also had little touches of Disney, naming the tables after famous Disney couples, Mickey cuff-links, Minnie earrings, their Minnie and Mickey cake topper and having Mr. & Mrs. letters in the Disney font.   I LOVED Ashley’s dress, which was just so beautiful!  It had lots of little details and it was just perfect on her!  I also LOVED the way that Dan looked at her all day…especially when he didn’t know anyone was watching!  We all had an absolute BLAST hanging with this group!  The Bridal party was so fun, the Families were so helpful and Ashley and Dan are just amazing!  Congratulations you two!!  Have fun on that cruise!!!
