What a stunning bride Rachel was for her wedding to Graham at Riverview on a beautiful Fall day. Every detail was perfect! As guests walked to the River Ceremony Site they enjoyed lovely ‘stations made of stumps, vintage chairs, and window frames with photos of the bride and groom for guests to peruse. Apples, mason jars, delicate lace and burlap were among the many decorative elements. The couple were married overlooking the James River which was breathtaking. After a lovely ceremony, guests returned to the smokehouse and yard to enjoy a ‘bacon and soda hour’ and games in the lawn – always a good time had by all The reception dinner was divine, all prepared by Charley’s Restaurant of Lynchburg (thanks Molly!). After an evening of heartfelt moments, the Bride and Groom spoiled their guests with home-made desserts which were on display inside the gazebo (great job Tammy Mason – you are incredible!)
