The Volkmans // Norfolk Botanical Gardens Wedding // Creative Virginia Wedding Photographer

It poured.
And I mean poured.
Meghan and Zach were supposed to be married outside.
In the gardens.
Surrounded by greenery.
The sky had other plans.

And sometimes that happens.
And it’s totally ok.

And sometimes just in time for portraits, it stops pouring and only drizzles and we all kind of just say “efffffff it” and take photos in the lightly falling rain.

Luckily when you have an indoor space, the botanical gardens staff, Sterling Meyers and Courtney Inghram on your side…
it winds up equally as magical.

Big thanks to Ashley for second shooting.
