[ olivia + sam | pungo, virginia beach ]

Posted in: Weddings

I am a firm believer that your day is 100% what you want it to be. When I first met with Olivia + Sam to talk about their wedding, they hadn’t yet decided on the venue. We talked through where they had visited and what they wanted, but every conversation came back to the idea of hosting their celebration on their land in Pungo. Olivia wasn’t sure it could be done, and neither were a lot of her friends and family. But y’all, we made it happen!

I loved the personal connections that were woven into Olivia + Sam’s wedding day. Her something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue were all jewelry pieces. The something old was her paternal grandmother’s tennis bracelet and her something borrowed was her maternal grandmother’s engagement ring. Both of her grandmother’s passed away when I was in high school, so these pieces were very meaningful to her. Her mom and dad also had a pearl bracelet with sapphires and pearl earrings made for her to fulfill her something new and something blue! Sallie, who sang the most gorgeous hymn, has been a part of Olivia’s life as long as she can remember. She stepped in to the grandmother role for her in every way, especially spiritually, and Sallie’s daughter, Felicia, had the honor of marrying Olivia + Sam.

Helping this wedding come together was a dream. It fills my heart to see my brides let loose and completely enjoy their day – and Olivia was able to do just that! We may have even extended the party a little bit longer to keep celebrating! Thank you to Meg Runion Studios for making the trip from Charlottesville to capture all of these moments! Another fun fact – Olivia has known Meg since high school, so she immediately knew she wanted her to be a part of their day!
