Blue and White Ginger Jar Wedding at Ni River Manor Hallie + Robbie | Fredericksburg, VA


This blog post has been a long time coming…because this wedding day has been trying to happen since 2020!!! Hallie and Robbie booked me for their Ni River Manor wedding in Fredericksburg all the way back in 2019. After SO many reschedules, moving venues, Robbie’s crazy work and travel schedule…they were finally able to make it happen!!! And it was such a beautiful day. We had 85 degree weather in late July (which does not normally happen!), so many fluffy blue and white florals and so many beautiful moments with their son, Tanner.

One of my favorite parts of this day was seeing how Robbie looks at Hallie as if she hung the moon and all the stars. His reaction to her walking down the aisle was SO sweet (wait until you see the photo!), and all of their sweet family moments with Tanner melted my heart. So many favorites from this wedding!

Hallie and Robbie: Thank you for trusting me to capture this beautiful day for you! I am SO glad that we were finally able to make it happen, and I hope you enjoy scrolling through so many of my favorites!

Absolutely loved her mom’s dress!!

First look with their son, Tanner! SO much sweetness!

This side porch was so little…but it was SO perfect for bridal portraits!

Ceremony time!

That one tear!!! So cute!!

LOVED the confetti!!!

A favorite!!!

A huge thank you to all of the amazing vendors who made this day happen:
