Happy Wedding Wednesday, lovelies!

I’m finally bringing back the Wedding Wednesdays series to the blog — the timing could not be more perfect! I’ve always loved looking at real weddings– especially ones that  take place in my home state of Virginia. Over the past few months, however, Virginia weddings have become a big part of my job at Virginia Tourism Corporation as we try to market Virginia as the *perfect* wedding destination for brides-to-be. Talk about making my dream job even more dreamy!

A wedding in Virginia is pure magic — plain and simple. I may be a little biased, but there is no denying that Virginia’s lush countrysides, gorgeous vineyards, historic hotels, miles of sunny beaches and cozy mountain resorts can be pretty enchanting to even the most discerning bride. Virginia has it all, and I’d be willing to bet that whatever type of wedding you seek– you’ll find it here in Virginia.

We chose a traditional church ceremony followed by a reception in a historic Victorian mansion in downtown Richmond, VA. If we hadn’t stayed in Richmond for hometown nuptials, our wedding would have taken place at one of Virginia’s 250+ wineries. From Charlottesville to the Eastern Shore, Northern Virginia to the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia’s wineries offer a picturesque rustic-chic experience. Whether you’re looking for an indoor/outdoor option, completely al fresco, or indoors with a view of the majestic mountains, here are six dreamy Virginia Vineyards to inspire your wedding planning.

So enjoy some of my favorite vineyard settings in Virginia, captured by some of the most talented Virginia wedding photographers! Click the title link for each wedding to see more gorgeous photos.
