Today’s inspiration comes from our Publisher’s daughter’s wedding held on November 11, 2017 at Rixey Manor near Culpeper in Rixeyville overlooking the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Of course when you are the daughter of Virginia Bride Magazine’s owner and publisher expect that the wedding is going to be a DREAM wedding!
This is part 3 of a part 4 series, today we take you through the moments leading up to and through the ceremony.
Check back next week for the reception reveal!
