Where to even start.
Chris + Anna are two of the most loving, genuine and joyful couples I’ve had the opportunity to work with. I knew Chris from JMU and had always heard wonderful things about Anna. I didn’t get the chance to meet Anna until their engagement session and she was pure gold.
Their wedding day was a beautiful day so full of meaning…from her mother’s gown and veil she donned to the sweet gifts Chris sent Anna every hour before the ceremony, topped off with a journal he had been writing notes to her in since 2012. Talk about romance.
These were surrounded by so many loving friends and family that there wasn’t a moment I wasn’t smiling during this joyful day. The simple + elegant details tied in with the heirlooms throughout their wedding day and it was a day of perfection.
A huge thanks to Brittany Claud for second shooting!

A friend of theirs illustrated the beautiful floral design for their invitations and paper goods! And the lace you see is from Anna’s mother’s wedding gown.
Opening the journal Chris had been writing in for years… Sweet Anna, you are stunning.
