A lovely celebration of love and family, the retro meets country vibe of this Virginia wedding ceremony could not be more charming if it tried! With romantic pin curls for Brianne and spectator shoes for Joseph, this couple was inspired by the vintage charm of their wedding venue, The Mimslyn Inn, in Luray, Virginia. And it doesn’t get more romantic than their intimate ceremony and lucky for us, Amber Reinink Photography was there snapping up all the sweet moments – so lovely! Join us later this morning to see more from their vintage and rustic wedding reception.
From Brianne: Our main priority was to keep it intimate, both for us and for our family and friends. Joey has three handsome sons from a prior relationship, and it was very important to incorporate them into the ceremony. A wedding is not only about the two people who have fallen in love with each other, but also about two families and two lives coming together.
As part of incorporating Joey’s sons into the ceremony, we had vintage brass medallions stamped with the serenity prayer. One for each of us (Joey, each boy, and me); small enough to keep in a pocket. We gifted these medallions during the ceremony as tokens of a reminder to the boys that although we can’t always physically be together, we will always be with each other and support each other, even from afar.
