Real Wedding: Katrina & Shawn – Suffolk, VA

Katrina and Shawn’s June celebration was full of personal touches. Both the bride and the groom have careers in the science field and their nature-filled wedding was a reflection of their shared passion. Family and friends gathered under the shade of a large tree to witness Katrina and Shawn exchange vows. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed lawn games and cooled off with Gold Blossom Margaritas and Bee Sting Bourbons. Small bronze animals figurines served as escort cards to direct guests to their tables which were named after different habitats. My personal favorite element of the reception was the wedding cake that Katrina and Shawn custom designed to display different ecosystems on each layer. Check out some of the creative details that made their big day so remarkable!
