Fall Wedding at James River Country Club Anne + Eric | Newport News, VA

Anne and Eric are such a classic and elegant couple. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Anne and her sweet momma through the planning process (and her gorgeous bridal portraits), and LOVED spending the day with the rest of her sweet family and her amazing HUSBAND last weekend! They tied the knot at the beautiful James River Country Club overlooking the water, and had an incredible reception that included an oyster bar and mashed potato bar (amazing!!) and hundreds of their closest friends and family. There was so much love at this wedding!

A beautiful first look, 18-person bridal party (!!!), a heartfelt ceremony at the church Anne grew up in, and the hilarious reception speeches were just a few of my favorite moments from this big day!! Anne and Eric have so much FUN with each other and it’s so evident in everything that they do. I loved capturing the JOY that unfolded in so many moments during the reception. I have so many favorites from that part of this day!!

Anne and Eric: Thank you both so much for inviting me into this special time of your life. What a privilege! I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images and are loving every second of your honeymoon! XO!
