Sneak Peak: Ashley + Anthony’s Wedding

I never done this before, but I decided to start doing it now. I want to feature a sneak peak blog while it’s still fresh. This is from my latest destination wedding. 🙂

The real blog with more images and complete story will be released later in chronological order like the rest of my posts. However, for right now, I’m going to temporarily go off the beaten path. 🙂

This wedding was from this month at Clifton Inn, Charlottesville, Virginia. It was a really beautiful place, and we got a beautiful weather too!

I spent the night at Charlottesville before the wedding day, and visited the venue to get a feel of the place. I took this image of Clifton Inn that night.

It was as the father of the bride foretold me, “It will be an emotional day…”

After everyone had gone home. It was just me, the bride and the groom. I took few more pictures of them in their honeymoon suite, which was at Clifton Inn as well… 🙂
