Welcome to Virginia Bride Magazine.
We are celebrating our 5th anniversary with our winter/spring 2013 issue. It is hard to believe so many years have flown by so quickly. When I started this magazine my vision was to offer a regional magazine to brides planning to get married in Virginia and by doing so- give these brides local resources for their Virginia weddings.
I am proud that each issue brings this vision to life with the local products and services from each area of Virginia that are featured in Virginia Bride.
In this issue I am excited to unveil our new look for Virginia Bride with a fresh, updated design and some new features to celebrate our fifth year of publishing.
I am also pleased to introduce our new designer – Stacy Maguire.
In this issue of Virginia Bride we visit two unique wedding venues located in the Blue Ridge Mountain regions including Shenandoah Woods in Luray and The Mill- Sap Baker Estate in Damascus.
I hope you will enjoy the interesting real Virginia weddings- many of our readers tell us they use these weddings to get ideas for their own weddings!
The fashion section showcases lovely designer gowns from Ava Laurenne Bride located in Fredericksburg’s historic district.
Each issue of Virginia Bride strives to give a Virginia Bride useful information to assist in planning the perfect Virginia Wedding.
Happy Wedding Day!
