I always enjoy the groom activities on the day of the wedding. I have been fortunate to shadow grooms in numerous ventures, from golf outings, skeet shooting, frisbee golf, Halo tournaments, posh shaves at The Grooming Lounge, to even just hanging out in their PJ’s. Our wedding season of 2010 has a couple of exciting outings lined up to include deep sea fishing and segways in the city! To bring you back to Billy and Sarah’s wedding weekend, they decided to have their entire ceremony and reception at the Inn at Old Virginia in Staunton. This Bed & Breakfast inn was a perfect choice for Billy and Sarah, for they had envisioned a simple yet elegant country setting. This Inn furnished these amenities, complete with rolling hills, pastures and cows.
Saturday morning after a healthy and wholesome breakfast, Billy and a few other adventurers (myself included), hopped in a carpool up to Humpback Rock off the Blue Ridge Parkway. We hiked about a mile up to the top (thank goodness for that wholesome breakfast), and savored a breathtaking view overlooking the Shenandoah Valley and ridge lines of the Blue Ridge.
Later that afternoon, Billy and Sarah’s ceremony was held in the back yard of the main house in front of lush rolling hills. After the toasts and cake cutting of the reception, I don’t think Billy and Sarah ever left the dance floor until the night was over.
