Can You Picture It?

Here comes the bride all dressed in white.

(Your imagination will need to provide the bride for this imaginary wedding scene.)

The bride all in white descends this heart shaped staircase

and exits the front door and descends the Spanish steps

and follows the bridesmaids pass this fountain to the wedding pavilion on the lawn.

She turns to face the awaiting assembled guests and looks back up the pathway to that magnificent Airlie house where later she and the bridegroom will have their wedding reception.

The extensive formal gardens offer many opportunities for photo opts for the wedding couple

and the wedding guests leisurely strolling thru the boxwood lanes.

Everyone will find interesting gateways to explore

like this wood and iron butterfly one. They will want to peep thru the opening to see what they can see of the beautifully landscaped grounds, lake, swimming house, tennis courts, riding stables and grounds, and sweeping lawns.

This tour of Airlie House in Fauquir County Virginia near the city of Warrenton will continue tomorrow. Same time, same place and same blog.

I've always thought this place would be perfect for just what you are describing. Lovely isn't it?

Joann: A wonderful tour of a neat place to visit. Neat the way you tied into the story.
