    Roanoke Wedding Festivities – Part 2 Wedding Ceremony & Reception

    Saturday September 17 was Demi and Nick’s wedding day!  They got married at 5pm at the Second Presbyterian Church in Roanoke, Virginia.  Demi, my husband, and their other sister Molly lived in Roanoke when they were younger.  My father-in-law was a headmaster at a private Roanoke Catholic school.  Nick grew up in Roanoke as well, which 1. Is such a small world and 2. Crazy that Nick and Demi never ran into each other when they were little.  For the wedding, the bridesmaids wore blush Amsale gowns and the groomsmen wore tuxedos.  The wedding ceremony was extremely touching.  I cried when Demi walked down the aisle with her grandfather.  She looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress.  After the wedding ceremony, an old fashioned trolley transported the wedding guests from the Church to the reception at the Patrick Henry Hotel.   Read more


    Roanoke Wedding Festivities – Part 1 Rehearsal Dinner

    This fall we have 5 weddings we are attending!  This past weekend we had my sister-in-law’s wedding in Roanoke!  My sister-in-law, Demi, and now brother-in-law, Nick, are perfect for one another.  We had such a great time celebrating with them this weekend!  I went to Virginia Tech for college, which is only about 30 minutes from Roanoke.  However, I never really spent much time in Roanoke.  Downtown Roanoke is really precious.  They have a great selection of restaurants and boutique shops.  My husband and I got in Friday afternoon and grabbed a late lunch at Fork in the Alley.  After stuffing our faces with pizza, we walked around the shops for a bit.  We ended up buying artwork for our home from a local street vendor.  After exploring downtown Roanoke, we checked into our hotel. We stayed at the Hotel Roanoke, which is absolutely gorgeous and looks like a castle.  Read more


    Pippin Hill Wedding Rehearsal

    Time flies by so quickly – I cannot believe I got married over 4 months ago!  I’m sure many of you saw (from my multiple Instagram posts), that our wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty! Style Me Pretty and Borrowed and Blue were my 2 main resources while planning my wedding.  Style Me Pretty is the best wedding blog out there, so I utilized it for wedding theme inspiration and I leveraged Borrowed and Blue to find our wedding vendors.  A husband and wife team started Borrowed and Blue.  They went to Darden Business School at the University of Virginia, where my husband went.  They may still reside in Charlottesville, so are well acquainted with local vendors.
