My husband, Kurtis, and I got married at Old Met last weekend on Nov. 4, 2017. It was the MOST beautiful event we could have expected, and the venue is so convenient. I grew up in Charlottesville, but we live in Los Angeles now, so we wanted a place that would be great for out of town guests to get the whole Cville experience. We got so many compliments on the location -- everyone loved the downtown mall.

Now, let me start on the staff! Sarah is one of the most amazing people to work with. She truly made us feel at ease, and we feel like we have a new friend in her. Her southern charm and patience is unmatched. We ended up hiring Steph to be our day-of coordinator. Our wedding day wouldn't have been the same without her. She's creative, organized, and calming. My mom couldn't stop talking about how wonderful she is.

Kurtis and I are thrilled about how everything turned out, and as cliche as it sounds, I wouldn't change anything about the day. It was literally a perfect depiction of the two of us as a couple.
