Boutique weddings are a trend worth noting. It’s the perfect wedding for couples committed to keeping their celebration simple and event budget manageable. Instead of opting for City Hall, the bride and groom can choose a more intimate venue knowing their ceremony will have extra special meaning with a guest list topping out at forty people.
Cue Hotel Weyanoke cradled between Charlottesville and Richmond is Farmville – a central Virginia town known for its place in history. Across the street from Longwood University and minutes away from Hampden-Sydney College, Hotel Weyanoke recognized there was an opportunity to offer their event space “Sassafras” for boutique, micro-weddings.
Sassafras is easily transformed with the help of the event team’s attention to detail—the flowers, lighting, and guest seating make the space ethereal and unique. Emily Pilk, Head of Meetings and Events for Hotel Weyanoke, takes pride in the weddings she’s created there. Booking a wedding at Hotel Weyanoke ensures that you’ll have this personalized experienced directly from Emily herself.
Following the ceremony, couples can opt to hold their reception downstairs in the hotel where guests can drink and dine in their rustic yet delicate dining space. But, not without catching golden hour and taking photos first! Longwood University is an idyllic setting for capturing wedded bliss and just steps away from the hotel. The entire scene surrounding Hotel Weyanoke features beautiful greenery and historic architecture that will set the precedent for a couple’s life-long commitments to one another.
