Old Towne Portsmouth Wedding

This Old Towne Portsmouth was just so sweet to be a part of! Bonnie was an old class mate of mine from school. We went through the entire school system together from primary school through high school! I have so many fond memories of her from school from hanging out in primary school to being together in driver’s education class. It was so sweet to be a part of her wedding day!

Bonnie and Nick met in grad school Appalachian State University. They were assigned to work on a group project together. And well the rest is history! They have been together for years, and last October Nick proposed. Bonnie did her undergrad years at William and Mary, so Nick only thought it was fitting to walk around the beautiful campus together and end up at the Crim Dell bridge on campus. That bridge has a tradition-supposedly if you walk across alone, you’re destined to be alone forever, but if you kiss someone at the top then you’ll be together forever. While they  walked across, Nick stopped to kiss me at the top, then he dropped to one knee and proposed!

And this October, they are married! Their wedding plans changed (and changed again!) due to Covid, but the day of the dreams finally happened! And it was beautiful wedding! Bonnie and Nick were married in Bonnie’s home church with their family and close friends there to witness it. And they had so many wonderful personal touches to celebrate the day-from Bonnie wearing her grandmother’s wedding dress to Nick’s special tie clip!

Her grandmother was married at the same church, in the same dress 65 years ago. Talk about legacy! It was so special to hear about her family’s legacy and tradition and to photograph such a special family heirloom!
