Vivian and Julian’s wedding on Saturday was a beautiful combination of their faiths and cultures. Their ceremony and reception were held at the Norfolk Pagoda. If you haven’t visited the Pagoda and gardens surrounding it, definitely take some time to go. It’s free to the public and is a little jewel of a spot tucked away just past the Battleship Wisconsin in downtown Norfolk.

They had perfect weather for their wedding day – October in this area is truly one of the best months of the year to get married. Here are a few sneak peeks from Vivian getting ready. Next up, I’ll be sharing photos from their “First Look.” Don’t know about a “First Look?” You’ll love it, I promise. :)
