{venue reveal}

3 Apr

There aren’t to many specific wedding details that I’ll share before hand, but I wanted to share the gorgeous details of my wedding venue with my family & friends who aren’t here to preview it with me!  {also with Patrick, as he’s deployed & only gets to see pictures}

Friday evening, West Manor held a tasting & also unveiled of all the new additions to their building.  West Manor has always been one of the prettiest places in Lynchburg to get married, but under it’s new ownership, it’s now THE prettiest place!  They gave the inside of the house a whole facelift…redoing each room.  They also redid all of the gardens & my favorite addition…the new atrium.  This is an all glass wing, off the ballroom, that will give my February wedding an outdoor feel!

{cake tasting}

The tasting was a great success!  The new caterer on staff, Michelle, was awesome.  She’s super sweet &  has great ideas.  I can’t wait to work with her in creating my menu!  West Manor brought in a bunch of local venders that each bride got to meet & get to know.  There were four different bakeries there featuring a few of their favorite cake flavors.  As you can see…I tried a bite of each!

This event was so much fun for my girls & I & made 2.23.13 feel even more real!

Thank you West Manor & all the vendors who attended!
