Salamander Resort Weddings Virginia

“Our pictures our absolutely stunning! Thank you so much for everything you did to capture our day so perfectly. Rodney and his team did an amazing job of staying in the background while still capturing every important moment.  I could not speak more highly of you, and I am sure to always tell people who took such beautiful photos.  We could not ask for anything more. Our albums are beautiful; I don’t think I will ever get tired of showing them to people.”

“Darcy is an absolute pleasure to work with. All emails and phone calls are answered very quickly, which is super helpful when you are busy planning. If I had a question, I had an answer that day. I never felt unsure about what was happening, and I loved how you feel like part of a family with Rodney and Darcy. I am going to miss it!”

– Jessica and Antoine’s review for Wedding Photojournalism by Rodney Bailey

Salamander Resort & Spa was the venue for Jessica and Antoine’s lovely wedding ceremony and reception. The couple described their wedding theme as “very classic with a hint of rustic.” When asked about the biggest surprise of the wedding, Jessica and Antoine responded “How many people flew from overseas to join us. We felt showered in love!”
