A Romantic Elopement in Virginia | Natalia+Richard


Richard + Natalia have gone through many opticals to finally reach the moment of saying “I do” to each other. Their love story is unique with Richard living in Virginia and Natalia from Russia. They endured lots long distance and traveling to be together. The love they have for each other was relevant in the photos taken at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens in Norfolk, Virginia. They wanted something that captured nature and the beauty of Virginia. Natalia loved being in front of the camera, she was a model in Russia and she lit up taking photos with her new husband. Her dress was custom made for her from a Russian wedding designer Olga from Le Ola. It fit her perfectly and her husband couldn’t keep his eyes off her.

The daffodils were in full bloom and the day was perfect for a elopement!

What We Love:
The Norfolk Botanical Gardens added a softness to Natalia and Richard’s already romantic elopement. The pastel colors of the flowers that were blooming and in Natalia’s bouquet are very lovely and Natalia’s CUSTOM gown is positively stunning.
