What was your favorite memory from your Wedding at The Greenbrier?
It’s hard to pick just one memory because the whole weekend was more perfect than we could have ever imagined!! Everyone being together, celebrating with us for the weekend!
How did you hear about The Greenbrier?
We have been traveling to the Greenbrier with our families since we were kids.
What was the inspiration for your décor/theme of your wedding?
We knew we wanted a large, black tie wedding and we wanted all of our bridesmaids/groomsmen plus their dates to be able to sit together – something different and the main focus of our reception. That’s when we discussed having one large head table, of about 40! I looked at a lot of pictures online and picked pictures of floral arrangements with a lot of candles and it all kind of just fell together with the help of The Greenbrier team and Gillespie’s!
After the wedding was over, what was your favorite detail from the wedding events?
The head table and reception set-up!
How would you describe your wedding planning experience at The Greenbrier?
They made wedding planning stress-free and went out of their way to help us in any way possible, bringing our visions together beautifully!
