Kelsey and Matthew were the lucky winners of a “Romantic Anniversary Giveaway” from Chelsea Anderson Photography and Heart's Content Events and Design! They were treated to a stay at Wedmore Place in Colonial Williamsburg, as well as a tasting and wine tour at Williamsburg Winery, an elegant three-course dinner, calligraphed prints of their original wedding vows, and a gorgeous anniversary session styled with old Hollywood flair!
A glam Hollywood inspired anniversary session in Williamsburg, VA
My day began when I went to Virginia Beach to get my hair and makeup done. Adrienne, Stephanie and Leah made me feel so comfortable and at ease about everything. I was in LOVE with the look that Adrienne had dreamed up for me – an old Hollywood glam, complete with a bold red lip! After leaving the studio, I felt beautiful and ready to see my husband and hear him say “you're gorgeous.” It has been a while since I have felt worthy of those words. Then, we traveled to the Williamsburg Winery and were greeted by the sweetest staff who then took us to our room. Oh my goodness, The Champagne Room was STUNNING and it was all ours for the night! Matthew and I were elated. If seeing our room wasn't enough, Adrienne left our attire in the room along with a welcome gift. Were we celebrities or WHAT? Presents are my love language so I was on cloud nine! We got dressed in our black-tie attire and headed on down to the cafe to enjoy a glass of welcome wine provided by the winery. We sipped on wine in the library and just spent some time relaxing and feeling like a million bucks. Then, it was time for our photo shoot! Adrienne had it all ready for us: a cake, champagne toast, bouquet, candles, and even a violinist! All we really had to do was show up and smile – it was wonderful! Chelsea worked her magic and made us feel so comfortable and confident! We spent our time behind the camera kissing, snuggling, and dancing to the song I walked down the aisle to. It was perfect and the whole time it felt like we were getting married again! The whole team was seriously SO GREAT and we couldn't have been more pleased with how the whole shoot went. – Kelsey
