    A piece of VA heaven

    My fiancé and I looked all over the eastern seaboard for the "perfect venue". I was beginning to think it didn't exist until I stumbled upon a photo of wedding guests in a beautiful garden and these perfectly arched crape myrtles that created the aesthetic of an outdoor church. We made an appointment, met with Rita, and fell in love instantly. Truthfully we never wanted to leave. The venue is the perfect amount of virginia history, garden party, with the ability to create upscale elegance that someone could hope for. Our wedding was magic, with the venue providing all the necessary inspiration. The contract seemed fairly common sense, the price reasonable for the blank canvas of the outdoor setting, and the staff were great to work with. Rita was probably the fastest to respond of everyone I worked with for the entire wedding, which was always reassuring. It was convenient for guests to downtown Richmond (we were destination) and left everyone speechless. If we could do it all over again we would! Thanks again guys!!
