We randomly booked a stay at Walden Hall, never knowing it would later be the perfect venue for our just held wedding. Bless the Gods! Our vision was the perfect Autumn Virginia Wedding, held with the Ceremony on the Lawn, Reception in the Garden and later the beautiful Pool Area for late night family and friends. We were fortunate enough to be able to reserve the entire site for the weekend - highly recommended. However, as plans go, Hurricane Florence decided to invite herself and we faced major adjustments with two days left. Eric, the General Manager, and Lindsay, Walden Event Planner, corralled our vendors and formed an unbeatable and creative "think tank" to revisit every aspect of the day. Walden has the "Barn" in the classical sense, but thoughtfully decorated to nurture and personalize every event and it worked it's magic. We hold dear one image of our guests, eating, dancing and loving while the rain poured outside, almost tactile through the open barn doors, nestling us into being with one another, a perfect wedding moment. Trust your special day to the fully committed talents of Eric and Lindsay, choose well your caterer - one that will value their insights and creativity - and look forward to a life of oft relived memories. I know we will.
Daniel and Linda
