Abby & Matt’s Beach Wedding in Sandbridge

Ritz Beach House · Sandbridge, VA

You’ve seen Abby & Matt’s engagement portraits in Old Town Alexandria. Now it’s time for their wedding! Here are some images from Abby & Matt’s big day in Sandbridge, Virginia.

I love pilot weddings because they give me an excuse to blabber like a Justin Bieber fan about my own love of flying. And, thankfully, I’ve worked with many pilots who have been extremely patient and gracious about indulging my toddler-like fascinations with flying. Imagine my excitement to meet a bride and groom who both fly C-130s for the Air Force!

Abby and Matt picked Sandbridge for their beach wedding, and loaded up a couple of the finest local beach houses with their family and friends. Weather is the biggest fear about outdoor weddings, but we enjoyed comfortable temperatures and clear skies that perfectly matched the blues and turquoises Abby selected for her colors.

Speaking of blue skies, the mini air show that took place during Abby & Matt’s ceremony was definitely one of the highlights of the day. Abby wanted to surprise Matt by coordinating an aerial flyby during their ceremony. Surprising even Abby, two Army Black Hawk helicopters flew by to wish them well. Moments later, as the couple exchanged vows, Abby’s plane flew past with her special message for Matt. It was really fun to watch the guests catch on: one person, then another, then muffled laughter, then cheering!

Shortly after, DJ Rodney Charles welcomed everyone to the reception, where the evening concluded with some impromptu Michael Jackson dancing, a sparkler exit to the beach, and a couple kegs of beer being rolled down the street to continue the celebration (not pictured ;).
