As I predicted, it was a drop dead gorgeous bright blue sky day for the Spirit of Norfolk wedding of Joiceann and Alex! (I had a 50% chance of being right, so in retrospect, not a remarkable prediction but I’ll take it where I can get it!) Some of their Spirit of Norfolk wedding photos are posted below. It was a bit of a crazy day in downtown Norfolk because there was a Half Marathon race going on and a live band right next to the ship at Town Point Park. This made getting to the Spirit of Norfolk a bit of a challenge. I had to walk, with all my gear, around 3/4 of a mile from a parking garage that I could get to since the streets were closed. During the ceremony, along with the planned wedding music, the couple and their guests were treated to an extremely loud and terribly sung cover of a Beastie Boys tune. (that will no doubt forever be burned into the memory of the day for Joyceanne and Alex).
I don’t think anything could really bother this couple. They’re truly about as sweet as they could be. The Spirit of Norfolk wedding cruise was great once we got out of range of that horrible cover band playing the race after party. It WAS a bit of a challenge to get Alex to dance, but he cooperated with his new wife (smart man) and tore it up pretty well! The staff and crew of the ship were great! Very nice people and I’d highly recommend this as a great wedding venue in Norfolk.
Enjoy the wedding photos!
