it’s always like this

berkeley plantation

(this post has a link to a GORGEOUS Berkeley wedding!)

okay, so it’s not in richmond but it’s within driving distance and it’s just plain stunning.  there’s a never ending supply of gorgeous places to take photos.  there are really no bad angles at this place especially during the spring/summer when it’s all in bloom (well, unless you get too close to the water and see the treatment plant/factory across the way).  my photos (all but the first 2) were all taken in December if that tells you anything.

the planner there is very nice.  you have to get in touch with her and she’ll send you a packet before she’ll setup any meetings to tour the grounds.  however, you can also tour the grounds yourself first if you want.  when we were looking here the rates were:

Sat. (in season) $2,500 (disc. rates for other days and off season)
this is for 7 hours (2/set-up and 1/breakdown)
they request you be cleaned up and out of there by 8pm (if you don’t want to do the math, this means your entire event would start at 3pm so no evening affairs)
includes: use of gardens. restrooms, parking, bride’s parlor, on-site attendant, photo session (coming by on another day to do photos) and the rehearsal
they do not require you to use any specific vendors which is awesome and you are also allowed to use bird seed and flower petals there

we eventually decided not to use this location because it was just too damn big.  while it’s absolutely gorgeous in it’s grandeur it would have either ended up looking bare or it would have cost us a fortune in decor to make it more cozy.  if we weren’t trying to do something so small it may have been a better option.

  1. One thing that is nice is you can see how people have reviewed
    the roof gutters that they have and be able to avoid some of the pit falls that can
    happen with cheep or poorly made roof gutters.
    Would a be the solution to your transportation problems.

    You may want to get some roof gutter accessories that help your maintain the copper, aluminum, or
    steel gutters you’ve had installed.
