Ali and Brian had their wedding reception at The Water Table in Virginia Beach. I can’t say enough great things about The Water Table. Suffice it to say that I HIGHLY recommend it as the top pick in this region if you want a beautiful wedding on the water at Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach. Just go there, talk to Deb Davis, and book it. You won’t be sorry. (Trish and I were married there, so my experience doesn’t come just from working weddings at the venue). Their ceremony was held at Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Virginia Beach. I’ve shot MANY weddings at this church. Father Steve is GREAT! And, due to the time of day following the ceremony, I suggested a nice shady spot for some quick post ceremony wedding photos of Ali and Brian at the wooden bridge which connects 24th St. and the parking lot area of The Virginia MOCA (where I’ve shot a ton of weddings as well!). I call it the “MOCA Bridge” but it doesn’t belong to the MOCA, it’s city property, so no permission required to use it. 🙂
Prep was done at an oceanfront hotel, then off to Star of the Sea. After the ceremony (we did the family formals at the church, and a quick session with their dog at the church as well), it was off to the MOCA Bridge for wedding party photos and a short session with Ali and Brian. Then it was off to The Water Table for the reception!
Here are some photos from the wedding day below, if you have any questions about any of the venues (especially The Water Table) shoot me an email from the contact form link above!
