Virginia Beach, Jessica & Daniel

Jessica, my cousin, and Daniel, her best friend of six years, finally tied the knot on April 14, 2013. It was a destination wedding for most of family, and those who made the trek were rewarded with a beautiful warm, sunny day and an equally amazing ceremony and reception.

The wedding took place on the sand just off the Virginia Beach boardwalk behind the Hilton Virginia Beach Oceanfront Hotel, where most of the wedding party and guests were staying. The reception was also held at the hotel, and I think they did an all around great job with the catering, setup, and accommodations.

We were able to spend a few days on either side of the wedding enjoying the beach, the boardwalk, and the surrounding areas, making this an extremely enjoyable long weekend (not to mention the $2 bloodies and mimosas at Doc Taylor’s). It was a much needed break from the constant rain and 40-degree weather that we can’t seem to shake in Chicago.
