Matt & Jena | Inn at Willow Grove Wedding | Orange Virginia Wedding Photographer

A Romantic Teal & Yellow Summer Wedding at the Inn at Willow Grove by Melissa Arlena Photography!


By Orange Virginia Wedding Photographer –  Melissa Arlena Photography

The day was perfect, in fact you couldn’t ask for more beautiful weather for an Inn at Willow Grove wedding!  I was happy that this wedding officially put me over the 50% mark on rainy vs sunny wedding days at The Inn at Willow Grove.  I remember chatting with Jena last year about her wedding and learning that not only was she planning her wedding she was also in law school and would be taking finals just a few weeks before saying I do.  I told her she was crazy!  But she managed to pull it off and be the happy stunning bride she wanted to be on her wedding day.

Jena and Matt met in college and as I talked about in their engagement blog post earlier this week it all started when he asked her to dance at a party.  I thought about that as he led her out onto the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife.  I’m sure Matt had no idea the importance of that first dance and that it was just the first of many more dances to come.  As they danced around under the tent at the Inn that night they both were beaming!  Finally after all that time they were husband and wife!

Mattt & Jena I hope you guys had a wonderful time on your wedding day!  I know your friends and family had a blast!  I hope that you guys never stop dancing together and always remember your first dance and now you can add the memory of your first dance as husband and wife.  Enjoy the photos!
