Virginia Wedding Inspiration- Dream Bridal Shower

Today’s inspiration comes from a real bridal shower and it is an absolute DREAM event held at a magical LeFay Cottage tucked away in Little Washington, overlooking the mountains.

The day progresses with mimosas, grazing bar, a bridal tea with and amazing variety of dainty desserts, lunch al fresco, cocktails, and cake!

What a memorable event for the bride and her girls, planned and styled by Exceptional Events by Elisa.
