Erin and Bret chose to host their wedding at Primland resort in the mountain tops of southwest Virginia. After reaching the entry gate, there is still a 6 mile drive before reaching the main lodge where all wedding festivities took place. The ceremony was held in the great hall with rows of silver chiavari chairs and two large Manzanita trees draped with crystals. The bridesmaids wore dark silver dresses with all purple bouquets of hydrangea, roses and stock. The bridal bouquet was round cluster of peonies that smelled amazing! Dinner was held in the Elements dining room. Each table had a dark silver Dupioni linen with a grouping of 3 different silver containers (all of which were collected by the bride’s mother herself!). The room was very romantic and cozy with lots of candle light and a fireplace in the center of the room. After dinner guest moved in the Galaxy ballroom to dance the night away to a live band, The Embers. At the end of the night, the bride’s parents gave away wine from a local winery, Chateau Morrisette with a tag that said, “Thank you for sharing this special day with us. On November 3, 2013, we invite you to open this bottle and raise your glass in celebration of Erin and Bret’s first anniversary! Cheers!” What a great idea for guests to remember the couple’s wedding anniversary!
