There is nothing I love more than an Orange, VA wedding! I have been dying to shoot at the Inn at Willow Grove for ages, so when Erica said that’s the venue they chose, I was SO excited!
I feel like I’ve known Erica and Colby forever!! Erica actually contacted me to shoot a family event YEARS ago, and then I heard from her again when it was time for her own wedding. It’s been such a pleasure to get to know them both! Erica was so helpful with giving me recommendations for London. In fact, one of the first things she said to me when I walked in on HER WEDDING DAY was, “OMG how was your trip?” How sweet is that?
So, we started the day in Willow Grove’s School House where Kristin was working on Erica’s hair and makeup. It was a perfect London-like day, too: cool and gray!
All of the florals by the darlings at Briarwood Florist were so beautiful!! Erica couldn’t say enough sweet things about them. 🙂
Colby is a NATURAL in front of the camera!!
Erica surprised everyone in a dress with a pop of green! It was perfect for her!
Willow Grove’s porches are perfection! It was the perfect spot for her dad’s First Look.
AND for iconic bridal portraits. 🙂
Erica’s friends had THE sweetest reactions to their special First Look!
Colby’s reaction wasn’t too shabby, either. 😉
We had some extra portrait fun in Willow Grove’s library before the ceremony. Y’all know I’ll always be down for photos in a library!
Before we knew it, it was time for the ceremony!
Erica & Colby celebrated that evening with an intimate dinner with family and closest friends. And it was impeccably styled!
Erica & Colby,
Thank you SO much for choosing me to be your photographer. It was my pleasure to be a part of this special day, and I can’t wait to see what adventures are ahead for you both!!
