Venues Pt. 1 & New Beginnings

What a whirlwind this weekend has been, moving and visiting potential wedding venues 🙂  Don’t get me wrong, it was all exciting but it was very tiring…

I know that I’m not the only bride-to-be and lots of girls go ga-ga for wedding details so I thought that it would be fun to share some information about the venues that my Dear and I visited this past weekend!  All of the venues that we looked at were located in the Leesburg area.  Next weekend we’ll be visiting a few venues in the Alexandria and D.C. area…

**FYI: the venues are listed in order as we saw them, they are not in rank order!**

“Cherished. Elegant. Memorable. A wedding at Lansdowne Resort is sure to be a treasured event. Enjoy stunning panoramic views, exquisite decor, a mouth-watering menu and luxury accommodations. Be pampered before and after at Spa Minerale. It’s your special day. Love every minute.”

Question:  Do you like wedding shows?  I love “Say Yes to the Dress” and “Four Weddings” 🙂

Question:  If you were married in the Northern VA area, where did you get hitched?!

  1. Oh my goodness, every venue you’re considering is absolutely gorgeous! You can’t go wrong! Are you planning on visiting all of these places? I don’t think I’d ever be able to choose… 🙂

    Mmm that pumpkin pie spice is making me crave pie…and pudding…and muffins. Yum!

    • Life's a Bowl

      We looked at the ones listed! There are others that are on our “to-see” list that we’re looking at this weekend and next… Busy but funsies 😀

      P.S. The pumpkin pie spice is totes amazing, highly recommend it mixed with plain Greek yogurt, a little sweetener, and topped with some cereal or graham crackers for a simple “pumpkin pie”!

  2. hey girl. i had a friend get married at oatlands (http://www.oatlands.org/) in leesburg last summer. really gorgeous outdoor wedding. good luck finding a venue!
