A Vibrant DIY Wedding at Virginia Beach Resort Hotel in Virginia Beach, Virginia

Mari Pizarro (33 and in vehicle sales) and Mike Lambert (31 and in IT) had a totally DIY wedding at Virginia Beach Resort Hotel in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The beachfront ceremony took place under a DIY arch that the couple made, and they lined the ceremony aisle with hanging mason jars filled with white hydrangeas. Mari and Mike created their own sand-unity ceremony, so they could include their children and truly unify their family. The following reception featured tons of chalkboard signs in blue and yellow. There was a chalkboard sign inviting guests to sign the puzzle-piece guest book, which featured one of Mari and Mike's engagement photos. A similar chalkboard sign asked guests to write marriage advice for the newlyweds. One chalkboard sign showcased the neon glow sticks that lit up the dance floor later in the night, and another had bubbles for guests to blow at Mari and Mike's exit. These signs were a fun touch that brought together all the personal aspects of the wedding. Mary Alice was there to capture all the details at Mari and Mike's wedding. See all that and more, below.
