Norfolk wedding ceremony photos? Why such a generic title? Well, Joiceann and Alex booked me to shoot their wedding aboard the Spirit of Norfolk and I assumed that meant an entire, normal, traditional treatment of a wedding. I didn’t find out till later that they planned to elope a few days before the WEDDING (stay with me) on the Spirit of Norfolk. They wanted their LEGAL ceremony to be private, just them and the celebrant. (I’m a sucker for romanticism so I think this is awesome). A week or two before the wedding, they asked me if I would come out and shoot their private ceremony which they planned to have at Nauticus, in front of the Mermaid at the Half Moone Center. I was honored! I would get to be the only witness, the only observer, and I get to bring a bunch of cameras too! I cleared my schedule for that morning and agreed (of course!). Sounds perfect, right? Everything about it was perfect, even though it was raining, and cold.
Rain or shine, the Nauticus, Half Moone, Battleship Wisconsin, Town Point Park area of Norfolk was perfect for the Norfolk wedding ceremony photos I shot of Joiceann and Alex. What a super cool couple! Really looking forward to their “Wedding” in just 5 days! I bet that they’ll have bright blue skies and calm winds for their wedding celebration on the Spirit of Norfolk!
