I am totally fascinated by the beautiful church steeples in Lexington and the Rockbridge County area. This is my first in a series of posts devoted to these steeples. I chose R.E.Lee Episcopal Church because that is were we have gone to church for years and where my daughter was married. It is adjacent to Washington and Lee University here in Lexington.

Here are Mattie with Ridge at the reception. There were yellow and white awnings everywhere, divine food, lots of fun and music, and probably 150 of Mattie and Andy’s friends from the University of Virginia and Washington and Lee University Law School. They certainly had a good time*!*!*!*!*!*! The festivities were held at Maple Hall, one of the 3 historical country inns in Rockbridge County.
Mattie threw her bouquet from the upper balcony with all of their friends and family gathered. Her best friend and maid of honor caught it! A happy ending to a happy day.
John B. Gibson built Maple Hall in 1850 to support his growing family.It became known as Maple Hall at the Maple Hill Plantation. Three decades ago, the Peter Meredith Family bought the home from Mr. Gibson's descendants and worked to fully restore the mansion. In 1985 Maple Hall became the third and final Historic Country Inn of Lexington.
