Their wedding was held in October here in Virginia Beach… and was filled with love and laughter and a whole lot of pumpkins.
I met Jake through serving on Virginia Beach Leadership Workshop Staff… which Leslie is also a part of… along with a good chunk of people at their wedding. I’m not even going to attempt to explain it… it wouldn’t make sense unless you know. Long story short… they’re a couple of awesome kids who spent a lot of time involved in extra-curricular activities, went to awesome colleges, served on VBLW during the summers, and grew up and became awesome teachers here in Virginia Beach.
Somewhere in there, after Jake convinced Leslie to come back to Virginia Beach to teach, they fell in love. awwww.
When we met for a meeting about their wedding… they said they didn’t want posey photos… and that they wanted a lot of moments captured. I did my best to keep that in mind during their wedding at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Virginia Beach in October… It was a ton of fun, and I think Sarah and I managed to do what they asked.
Thank you guys for letting us be a part of your big day! (P.S. If you look hard, I may or may not pop up in one of the photos. Sidenote: I shouldn’t point that out… I look like I’ve been working all day in it.)

Part two… (here is part one if you missed it)… I could have posted an entire blog post of funny dancing photos. Those of you who get to see the full gallery are in for some laughs.
The Water Table is a gorgeous venue (like always) and East Beach Catering knocked it out the park. The food was delicious. I would have just sat on the floor in the corner where we were hiding and had seconds if I didn’t have to do that whole working thing.
Thanks to Jenna and Johnny for trusting me with their wedding. Have so so much fun in Australia! (They just left for a visit/honeymoon/trip of awesomeness!)
They were married in September in Virginia Beach at Nimmo United Methodist (which is just one of the cutest, old churches in Virginia Beach) and followed it up with a reception at the Water Table (which will come in another blog post soon). We got to hang out at the Salon I get my hair done at, Wink on Laskin Road, and Sarah got to hang out with the guys all over the place (including a bar… the guys always have more fun)…
Johnny Trash & The Scoundrels are some of them.
Support Local Music and donate to their kickstarter fund by going here…
even a dollar is good. (And, hey, for a dollar you get a digital download of two songs… deal of the century.)
