Anna + Caleb A Southern Inspired Virginia Cliffe Inn Wedding | Glen Allen, VA


I had never photographed at Virginia Cliffe Inn before, so I had no idea what to expect when I arrived on Anna and Caleb’s wedding day. But when I saw the beautiful home on the property…I was blown away!!! It has such a southern vibe and it made my heart so happy! We had the most perfect weather, beautiful venue and adorable couple for this wedding day…it was just bound to be amazing from the start!!

Caleb is my accountant’s son and when Michelle mentioned to me that they wanted me to be a part of the wedding day, I was so excited!! I just love her and knew that I would love her entire family just as much 🙂 But, when I found out that Caleb was marrying someone I went to middle school with…it was craziness!! SUCH a small world!!! Anna knew both Drew and I when we “dated” in 7th grade! Haha!! Good times 🙂

We had so much FUN photographing this wedding! There was so much joy throughout the entire day (I feel like I mention this in every one of my wedding day blog posts…but it’s so true!!! My couples are just full of so much joy and happiness-that’s why I love them!!!).

Anna and Caleb: Thank you both so much for allowing us to be a part of your big day! I hope you are having an absolutely amazing time on your honeymoon-enjoy some of my favorites!
