It was slightly overcast and breezy outside the day of Dane and Michelle’s Virginia Beach wedding. The weather said it was going to rain. As Michelle got ready, I heard almost no mention of the impending rain but rather casual chat and comfort among friends and family. Michelle seemed completely unphased by the fact that their wedding may be a rainy event. It was clear that her sole focus for this day was to marry Dane. During the first look it was impossible to keep a dry eye. It was just so sweet to see how excited Dane was to see his bride! Dane and Michelle have been together over seven years and that history created such a comfortable environment. They just knew each other so well that this felt like a celebration of something that everyone involved felt sure of. It felt like it was meant to be without question. Michelle is Dane’s girl… and there is no doubt about it. The way he looks at her was enough to make me cry sitting at home editing these photos! That is how intense and honest this love story is. It rained, and it cleared up, and most importantly of all the weather had no effect on their day. It was… perfect.
