hat a complete success this event was!! I cannot wait to see brides find out about all the amazingness that can be found in Orange, Virginia for weddings! If I hadn't have gotten married in Texas and could do it all again up here...I'd be having MY wedding in Orange. In a heartbeat :)
I got a sweet phone call from Jay over at The Inn at Westwood Farm asking if I would be interested in documenting The First Annual Orange Wedding Tour...no thought needed, of course I would!! I just knew from the start it was going to be awesome. Plus, I was so excited that Jay asked me to be a part of it!
The tour consisted of both guests and vendors alike. The guests were invited from the Richmond, VA area and included various wedding professionals that were to come and enjoy a little Orange hospitality. Direct from the tour coordinators: "Over the course of the next two days, you will tour venues of varying sizes, scenery, and settings; sample foods from noted chefs, see flowers designed for any style, and meet experienced Orange vendors who are dedicated to making any special event even more special."
Many thanks and congratulations to all the vendors who made this possible!
