Last weekend we attended our nephew's wedding at the Briar Patch Bed and Breakfast. The festivities included a rehearsal dinner on Friday evening and the weddding and reception on Saturday.
The Briar Patch is located in rural Virginia, near Middleburg, and the setting is lovely. The rehearsal dinner was in a separate wing from the B&B - same location as the wedding reception. The location featured a large patio with covered bar, as well as expansive indoor seating in a hall and adjoining room. We enjoyed drinks and mingling on the patio in the wonderful late summer twilight both evenings, and the settings for the dinners were comfortable yet elegant.
The wedding was conducted outside under a large tree - perfect weather and the setting felt intimate. The only possible drawback was the proximity to the two lane road running in front of the property, but it was not really distracting during the ceremony.
Many of our family stayed at the Briar Patch for the event; we were not able to secure a room, but wish we could have. All our relatives who stayed there recommended it.
In all, a beautiful setting for a very special event!
