Wedding PR: Orange Wedding Tour Feature!

I remember the day the idea was born. Probably because I ran the other way like it was a big steaming plate of chicken pot pie. 🙂

Jennifer McBride of McBride Events and I had just made our way to the Holiday Party for the Community of Charlottesville Wedding Professionals and got to talking with some lovely folks out of Orange County, Virginia. One thing led to another, and they got to talking about creating a wedding tour of the various venues in Orange. So I promptly excused myself because large projects of that scale normally invoke that sort of reaction and I knew that Jenn loved a challenge.  And thus, an idea was born- and I was lucky enough to snag an invite to attend.

Well, I’m happy to report that the Orange Wedding Tour, which took place just a few short months later this past Spring, was a bona fide success. If you missed it, I featured the tour on the blog here, here, here, here, here.. and well, here.

And we weren’t the only ones who thought the tour was snazzy- the wonderful Juli and Nole from up and coming wedding blog United with Love agreed with us as well. Over the last month, we’ve been collaborating to bring you the Orange Wedding Tour, with a United with Love twist.  It was an enormously rewarding project and a great testament to the amazing gems you can find in Orange.

Thanks for stopping by and special thanks again to Juli and Nole for the opportunity. Enjoy your weekend!
