The Marina Shores setting for both the wedding and reception of Joey and Mary Cofer was perfect on a September evening. Guests enjoyed the view of the yachts as the back drop of the wedding. Mary is the daughter of Kevin and Susie Eppley of Great Bridge, and the bride and groom have a home in Greenbrier. Mary is a certified surgical assistant at American Surgical Assistants/Chesapeake Regional Medical Center while Joey is a mechanical engineer at Norfolk Naval Shipyard.
