Here comes the bride — and her embezzlement charges!
Police say a Virginia bride allegedly swiped more than $93,000 from her employer so she could pay for wedding expenses and a butt lift.
Vanessa Cline, a 32-year-old bookkeeper, was arrested Wednesday on embezzlement charges for racking up purchases on No Limits Construction’s company credit card, according to the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office. She also faces forgery charges.
Cline’s boss told detectives he made the shocking discovery when a credit card company contacted him about defaulted payments.

When the owner looked into the bills, he discovered numerous charges made by the bookkeeper, such as a $2,000 wedding dress and $25,000 for a wedding planner, according to officials. Other luxury purchases billed to the card included clothing, perfume, furniture, airline tickets and an ATV.
Cline also reportedly put $7,200 on the card to pay for a butt lift at Elite Plastic Surgery in Miami, Florida.
In addition to the unauthorized purchases, Cline is accused of forging five checks totaling nearly $10,000.
Cline — who was booked in Rappahannock Regional Jail — got the bookkeeping gig when she replaced an employee at the company who pleaded guilty last year to embezzling at least $150,000.
The bride’s bond was set at $8,000.
