As I walking to Latosha’s penthouse hotel room at the lovely Oceanaire Resort Hotel in Virginia Beach, I could already hear the laughter and excitement.  Latosha had been waiting so long for this day to arrive and finally, today was her wedding day.  Latosha opened the door, and I was in awe, her makeup and hair were impeccably styled and she looked positively radiant.  Her beautiful smile greeted me immediately+ she was all to eager to introduce me to all of her bridesmaids, family and friends that were with her at the oceanfront hotel suite. 

Latosha chose a stunning Maggie Sottero wedding gown to marry her beloved. 

Latosha had an incredible bridesmaid “squad” with her that comprised of family and lifelong friends. Each person had a profound role to play in helping Latosha get dressed and ready to marry the man of her dreams. In this tender moment, her Godmother is helping her with her stunning jeweled headpiece. I truly loved witnessing each aspect of her bridal dressing, it was heartfelt and full of meaning. 

As a surprise, Patrick gifted Latosha with the most stunning pair of Christian Louboutin jewel encrusted wedding stilettos.  Like Latosha, I cried a little too.  They were truly beautiful and the most perfect wedding gift for her!  

Bravo, Patrick!  What an incredibly beautiful and thoughtful gift to give Latosha! She was beside herself, it was truly an emotional moment when she opened the box and realized what was inside.

Their wedding was an intimate and elegant affair with their guests mingling on the 10th floor patio surrounded by gorgeous oceanfront views. Both Latosha + Patrick wanted to have the beauty and tranquility of the ocean play a big part in their wedding celebrations.  Although the temperatures were in the high 90’s that did not stop the couple, nor their beloved guests from enjoying the wedding.   During the cocktail hour, we took a few moments together with their wedding party and captured their bridal party and well as bride + groom’s first wedding photos together at the oceanfront.  We had many onlookers and tourists waving and sharing heartfelt congratulations to the couple as we continued with their wedding photos!

While we were enjoying our time down at the oceanfront, Richard from Astro Entertainment was keeping all the guests entertained and happy!  His energy and love for what he does is truly evident.   

Congratulations Latosha + Patrick! 

A special thank you to all the wedding vendors that helped make Latosha + Patrick’s wedding day a huge success!
