Yacht Club Wedding in Norfolk, Virginia

Melissa and Trip wed at the Norfolk Yacht Club in Virginia. Their traditional waterfront wedding was clean and classic with a color palette of blush and navy with pops of fuschia brought to life by Cherry Blossom Planning Factory and Palette of Petals. / Images by Luke and Ashley Photography.

Says Melissa, “The first look was the best decision we made – took so much of our anxiety away before we walked down the aisle. The favorite part was definitely just the party afterwards – when dinner was cleared and all that was left was dancing! Melissa & Trip’s Love Story | We met through a mutual friend in 2007 (in college, and we were in separate and serious relationships) and we reconnected through a different mutual friend in 2013 (both very single at this point) and quickly became inseparable. He proposed on a pier in front of my entire extended family at the spot we have been vacationing my entire life – my favorite place on earth! He had my cousins out on a boat blasting our song and holding up “Will You Marry Me?” signs, amazing.

Advice? Don’t try to get to every table to talk to every person at your wedding – your guests know how quickly this day flies by and will not be offended. Stay on the dance floor and let people come say hi to you or grab a dance with you. IT FLIES BY.
