New look, the same Virginia photography you know and love.

View More: resounding horn of a train draws you into the historic era of The Historic Boxwood Inn, a newly renovated wedding and event venue located in Newport News, Virginia.  It is easy to imagine the hustle and bustle of people boarding and arriving from the train station across the street as the steam from a steam engine billows into the air during World War II as it lurches forward to travel to the next station.   You can practically hear the swing band trumpeting out as people dance and celebrate in midcentury elegance, visiting this very charming Inn to conduct business in the general store or to comfortably stay the night.  These are days gone by, however the new owners of The Historic Boxwood Inn truly cherish the historic aspect of this unique venue and have preserved its charm as they renovated.  When we toured the Inn, we could clearly imagine this era and integrated it into our styled shoot.  This incredible vendor team did not disappoint.   (See the list of vendors at the end of this blog post.)  Everything was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed seeing it all come together.   Check us out also on Hill City Bride!
