Christen | Bridal Portraits at the Norfolk Pagoda

May 31, 2018

We had the fun opportunity to get to know Christen Allocco, of Allocco Design a few weeks ago. She just got married this past March and we met up with her at the Pagoda in Norfolk during the golden hour(s) to take some bridal portraits. She even put together her own bouquet for the shoot! Christen seriously does it all, guys, because she also designed her own wedding invitation suite! Her dress kind of matches her personality in that it’s flowey and lighthearted, and her long veil complimented it perfectly. All in all the evening was laid back and fun as we got to know Christen a little better while walking from the Pagoda, around the Freemason District, and back.

We also discovered that bridal sessions are a wonderful way to get more pictures of that gorgeous wedding dress, without the pressure of a timeline or a wedding to get through! Plus, it gives you more time in the dress that you obviously love so much. I know I wouldn’t mind putting my dress on again for a few pictures! We hope you enjoy scrolling through these. Feel free to leave some love in the comments and check out Christen’s design business!

 Her hand-lettered invitation suite. All the heart eyes for this beautiful script and popping colors! Her hand-lettered invitation suite.

She wanted peonies in it, and we almost took the ones from my peony bush, but she used hydrangeas instead, and it turned out beautifully! And check out her bouquet.

    I use Showit, and I don’t have an affiliate link! Thank you for the compliments though. I can totally help you out with building a pretty website if you ever need it!

    Did you develop this website yourself? Please reply back as I’m wanting to
    create my own website and want to find out where you got this
    from or what the theme is named. Many thanks! I am sure
    this paragraph has touched all the internet users, its really
    really fastidious paragraph on building up new
    weblog. I couldn’t resist commenting. Well written! http://cspan.co.uk

    Thank you. I did develop it by myself using a pre-made theme that I’ve tweaked and am still tweaking!! The theme isn’t available on Showit anymore to my knowledge though.
