A Williamsburg Wedding

Kaplan Parish Hall,  Alisandra Photography

Williamsburg is an incredibly romantic wedding destination. Rich in history and gorgeous architecture, couples are drawn to their venues. The history of Williamsburg dates all the way back to 1699, as one of the first planned cities. Capital buildings were soon constructed and soon an array of academics and leaders made their way to the city. The College of William and Mary was founded in 1693 and Presidents Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, and John Tyler all came from the city. General George Washington and the Continental Army led America to independence in Williamsburg in 1781 in nearby Yorktown. 

A wedding in Williamsburg can be a grand affair, with a round of golf for the bridal party, spas for pampering, and some of the best vendors in the business to take care of all the details. In Colonial Williamsburg your guests can experience Williamsburg as it was during Colonial times. They can take a ghost tour and watch as "actors re-create life on the eve of the Revolutionary War" (www.visitwiliamsburg.com)

If you're looking for an amazing cake or dessert for your wedding, you have to check out Cakes by Tawanda. This award winning bakery makes custom cakes and has been one of the Best of Williamsburg winners and has been featured on Food Network's "Bake it Like Buddy".

While Cakes by Tawanda can make beautiful cakes, they can also make custom desserts like lollipop or cupcakes for your wedding. These are great for a dessert bar!

Real Wedding: The Williamsburg Inn

Williamsburg Resorts is comprised of over 20 spaces for your wedding. One of our favorites is Williamsburg Inn. Morgan and Scott had their gorgeous wedding here and we love all the classic details. Not only did bride Morgan look like a beautiful princess, but the bridal party looked so great in chic black. Guests danced the night away with The GROOVE Motive. The bride and groom used Williamsburg Event Rentals for all their rental needs. Heather Hughes, one of our favorite local photographers, took the beautiful photos.
