A Fun and Bright Wedding at Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club in Virginia Beach, Virginia
Carly Estock (29 and a director at a country club) was supposed to go on a blind date the night she met AJ Facenda (30 and in the Coast Guard). By chance, she canceled her plans to go to dinner with an old friend. Little did she know that her friend happened to bring along the man who would be her future husband. This fortuitous couple had their spring wedding at the Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Carly and AJ chose a bright color palette of yellow, white and gray for their fun-filled wedding. "Once my bridesmaids walked out in yellow, I knew our color fate was sealed," says Carly. "It was such a bright, vibrant, sunshine yellow and I knew it would look great at our outdoor wedding." They exchanged their vows at a beautiful ceremony by the Lynnhaven River. The tented reception that followed was decorated with modern, chevron table runners, tall centerpieces with gerbera daisies, hydrangeas and bells of Ireland and playful streamers. Carly and AJ's festive night ended with a bang: one of their friends hired a surprise yacht for their exit. "It was a great way to end our wedding on the water, and Aj and I loved every second of it."
