I'm off to the East Coast next week for a wedding, but not just any wedding...it's my brother's! The wedding will be held at The Athenaeum in Old Town, Alexandria, VA. This building is full of such history, as much of Old Town is. It was built in 1851 and has such a romantic feel to it. The reception will be held at this fun chic hotel in Old Town called Hotel Monaco. Misty, the bride-to-be has amazing taste and has been planning this beautiful fall wedding for months...I can't wait to post all the fun little details.
