Wedding Weekend

Early Friday morning, my daughter and I hopped in the car and drove to Northern Virginia to start a weekend of wedding festivities.
Friday was the bridal shower since the bride and groom live in Europe and had just arrived home that very week!
She was showered with love and beautiful gifts.
My extremely talented sister baked all of these mini wedding cakes from scratch.
They tasted as good as they look!

My daughter was asked to be a flower girl, so Saturday we headed over to an incredibly gorgeous venue, 
Belmont Country Club in Ashburn, Virginia.
A historic mansion that brings you back to "Old Virginia", a time of gentility and classic equestrianism.

Belmont has been impeccably restored and maintained.
It is truly breathtaking and one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to.
Saturday evening everyone gathered for a heartwarming dinner to celebrate the soon to be Mr. and Mrs. giving the families time to meet and reconnect in a casual setting.

Sunday afternoon, my little flower girl and I headed over so she could meet up with the rest of the bridal party who had been there prepping for hours.
Hair and makeup were winding down and it was almost showtime!
