I have known Jimmy and Lara since one of their first dates, back in the summer of 2013. If memory serves me correctly, John and I met up with our good friends, Kennon and Travis (one of the groom's men) and the new couple after dinner for some drinks at Taphouse in Virginia Beach. It was like they had known each other forever. I remember saying that to them. "Seriously...you guys just met?" Jimmy was charming, funny and seemed relaxed but even though I had just met him, I could tell he was soooooo into Lara and was a bit nervous but no one could tell...he was too cool for nerves. Lara was super sweet, kind, beautiful and just as witty and sometimes more than Jimmy. All evening they bounced jokes off each other and finished each others sentences like they had been together forever.
Lara and Jimmy had planned to officially tie the knot with close family and friends on August 8th, 2015. Unfortunately, the Lord had other plans. Due to housing situations, Lara & Jimmy decided to become husband and wife early.
January 21st, 2015 Lara & Jimmy exchanged their vows at Sweetwater Cuisine in front of Kadin and both sets of parents. It was perfect! Quiet, intimate, and not stressful. They were able to share a toast, dinner, and cake with their parents before heading to their quaint cabin at the KOA in Virginia Beach.
No time for a honeymoon because the next day, they were moving Jimmy out of his condo.
So that brings us to August 8, 2015. The day of the wedding was breezy and beautiful in Virginia Beach. We were all prepared for summer storms and not being able to get outside at all. But, God always has a better plan. He gave us perfect weather and a perfect venue for the most amazing intimate Cash wedding! As you can see we had a blast from wrapping the bride in her one-of-a-kind gown to cutting the cake and discovering that the asparagus arrangement was really a Ninja Cake? Ok...gross and cool at the same time.
I hope you guys are soaking up the sun and enjoying the amazing Jamaica beaches while sipping on some paradise adult juice!
I hope you have many years of happy and loving memories together! I have been honored to be your friend and photographer through all of these amazing happy times. Thank You and we LOVE you all!!!
