If you and your other half are big foodies, an event space attached to a restaurant is a smart choice for your big day. Because after all, there will be no mediocre food in sight if your celebration is handled by your favorite local spot
We’re all about hospitality here, so we figured it’s high time to introduce ourselves! Over the course of the coming months, we’ll be doing a little series so you can get to know our event team better. We’re going to kick things off with Laura Silva, our Director of Events, who joined the HOUSEpitality Family 17 years ago in 2001.
For decades, the peak wedding season has always been considered spring. Winter is often overlooked and deemed the off-season for weddings, but in today’s blog we’ll discuss six reasons to consider hosting your own stunning winter wedding– after all, there’s a lot to be said for winter wedding bells!
Let’s set the stage. You recently got engaged and you’ve decided on a venue and a date but you’re wondering if you need a personal wedding planner to help you work through the rest of the details of your wedding day.
A version of this blog post appeared in the Winter + Spring 2018 edition of Richmond Weddings Magazine.
At almost every wedding we execute at The Boathouse locations or Casa del Barco, we see signature drinks on the menu. These cocktails, often passed to guests during the first hour of an event, serve a few different purposes.
I’m a little sad to see this blog series come to an end. It’s been so much fun sharing my wedding journey with you from start to finish. I’m really grateful to have the opportunity to document these moments. Hopefully my journey will be helpful for some of you current and future wedding planners!
My husband (at the time, future husband), and I decided to do a first look and also exchange gifts before the wedding. He was getting ready at our house so I had the photographer drive me over so we could get some photos of the gift exchange and also see each other before the ceremony. I know it breaks tradition but I am SO happy I did this. It just made me feel so safe and happy and just reassured me not to “get all crazy” and that I could handle this.
The big day has finally come to an end! After months of arrangements and countless hours meeting with vendors and planners, I have officially tied the knot! This experience has definitely been unlike any other and I have to admit I am a little sad to see it all come to an end.
Nobody ever said that wedding planning would be a breeze but I sure did underestimate the amount of work! It seems like I have been in the calm before the storm since I’ve sent out invitations but now that the big day is less than a month away it feels like I am in the eye of the tornado. There is so much to do and SO little time.
Since I work for a family of restaurants, the food for my wedding was really important to me. And being social people in our early 30s, FH (Future Husband) and I have been to our share of weddings. Nine times out of ten, the food was just not impressive, and sometimes it was not very good. That’s not the way I want people to remember my wedding. The food and drink (alcohol) are to be highlights!
