Destination Wedding

In Virginia's Blue RIdge

This nature-loving newlywed couple experienced an early spring wedding weekend at The Preserve. Friends and family dined, conversed, and really got a chance to catch up with one another. A bluegrass trio at the Overlook Pavilion took the welcoming reception to another level. The following morning, the guests were awakened by a stunning sunrise over the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains. A Yoga class by the pool was a great way to start the day. Afterward guests took to the Caldwell Clay Course to enjoy a round of sporting clays. The ceremony took place in a spacious clearing with panoramic views of the surrounding Blue Ridge mountains. The down-to-earth group of family and friends enjoyed a lively reception and star gazing by the fire to cap off a memorable weekend.
