Country Wedding in Virginia

In anticipation for all this beautiful fall weather coming our way, Lora Kelley sent over this lovely bit of inspiration for any brides looking to get married outside with a rustic wedding twist. Although strapless has been the most popular neckline for the last decade, I’m excited to see designers offer more neckline options like this beautiful Carmen Marc Valvo gown. The delicate cap sleeves combined with the soft and light material keep the entire dress very chic, but still casual all at the same time.
