Thanks to my amazing day planner and vendors I was stress free on the big day, my friends constantly complemented me on my zen like state of mind, which was only there because I knew my planner and the vendors had the wedding in order and running smoothly.
Our wedding was held at the historic Piper’s Opera House it fit perfectly with our vintage wedding (my inspirations was vintage/gothic/steampunk).
Both my husband and I have Scottish in our heritage so we decided he and the groomsmen would wear kilts to represent his clan and mine.
We spent the weekend at the Cobb Mansion B&B, which was amazing, and the owners were above and beyond sweet. Paul the owner drove me down in one of his classic cars and after our vows he drove us around Virginia city in his second vintage car that he had dressed up with “just married” signs.
Our day of coordinator, Liane McCombs Wedding Planning, made sure everyone was right where they were suppose to be. Her and Lori (the Director of Piper’s Opera House) made sure everything ran perfectly on the big day. Decorations were provided by a family friend, and we danced all night thanks to the music of the wonderful DJ Bill McClain (McClain’s Mobile Music and DJ Service) he was an amazing MC and everyone said he helped keep the party flowing and full of energy. The Old Corner Bar located next to the Piper’s Opera House provided all the beverages for our guests and was a delight to work with. The bar owner Bill was kind enough to also be our bartender.
My cake and cupcakes were provided by Perfectly Posh Sweets and Soirees. Dinner consisted of meals to please our vegan and omnivores guest and was provided by Fig Tree Catering. All night guests said the dessert and food was absolutely divine and praised the catering and cake companies.
After I searched forever I was able to find the dress that was perfect for me at G H Bridal & Tuxedo LLC. It was classy, had a touch of vintage and was edgy enough to fit my personality. My hair and makeup was done by Jenny (Salon 7) and my makeup was done by Edin Carpenter. The man behind my amazing photographs of the night were provided by Ciprian Photography.
It was a night of dancing, laughing and being surrounded by friends and family.
