6 Wedding Professionals Thinking Outside the Box
The Covid-19 pandemic has hit the wedding industry hard. Weddings have been postponed or cancelled and there is great uncertainty about when life will return to “normal” and we can get back to business. But there hasn’t been any sitting around for these hard-working folks! Here are a few stories about what our vendors have been up to during the pandemic.
Ducard Vineyards is proud to announce the release of their new “Thank You HEROES” wine that pays tribute to the many incredible people who are serving the community during this crisis.
Purchasers of this wine can honor their own personal hero. The wine is a 2019 Rosé, in limited quantity, with a special label designed to allow customers to write the name of their hero right on the label. DuCard is donating the proceeds from this program to local non-profits.
Who are Shannon and Francesca? Two former Ducard staff members who are now front line nurses.
Marty Van Santvoord of Beggars Banquet Rentals pitched in to help her daughter’s restaurant (The Lightwell in Orange, Virginia) with carry out and delivery. Her collection of mason jars came in particularly handy when cocktails-to-go became allowed!
Valley Mills Farm is now offering Micro-Wedding and Elopement packages! They take care of everything; a plated dinner, cake, bridal bouquet and photographer. There is plenty of open space at the farm—it’s a great way to still have your special day with a smaller guest list—and Valley Mills Farm does all the work!
Poplar Hill Wedding and Events Venue has been working on renovations to their pavilion. It will have restrooms and a full catering kitchen. They have also been working on the guest house, called The Bagley House. This home is 5,200+ sq ft with a fully equipped kitchen, 7 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, dining room, parlor and groom suit. The groom suite will be equipped with a big screen TV, pool table and bar.
The Watering Tin started making cocktail toppers during the shut down. These fun and creative toppers add a special personalized note to beverages. They are available as an add on to the Watering Tin’s services, or through their Etsy store.
