    SUCH a good find - wonderful rehearsal dinner spot!

    I found Penny Heart at the recommendation of our caterer. We were having a fairly small wedding on Saturday and invited everyone to our rehearsal dinner on Friday. We wanted a casual BBQ buffet dinner which allowed for outside catering and this spot was so perfect for our needs.

    Patrick was so easy to work with throughout the entire process. He video chatted with us to give us a tour and was extremely responsive to questions. We were able to drop all of our alcohol off the morning of the rehearsal dinner and pick it up the next day - which was a relief. He also encourages you to make the space your own. There is a well decorated bookcase so we framed a few pictures of our relationship and put them on the bookcase - which our guests seemed to enjoy. However, the space looks pretty interesting as is so you really don't have to add anything if that isn't your thing. They also have a music system which is easy to set up to play music (we did a Spotify playlist) and they have a big TV which you can use to do a slideshow, if you want. Glassware, flatware, and plates are also included in the rental - which is a HUGE bonus.

    We had about 55 people attend the dinner which was ideal for the space. Everyone had enough room so they could sit if they wanted. The location on the mall is also superb. Our friends got to easily go out after the dinner and our guests who had never been to Charlottesville got to see the downtown mall!

    I'm so glad we had our rehearsal dinner at Penny Heart - thank you Patrick!
