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 4 of a part 4 series, today we finish this series with the reception which is full of beautiful elements.
