This was a second marriage for both of us and we didn't want anything big. But we also wanted something that would give us nice memories. I scanned the internet for a pet-friendly B&B or Inn somewhere in Virginia. I found Holladay House on Trip Advisor and checked out their web site. It was a really nice site with lots of pictures and they offered several packages including one called the 'Traditional Elopement' package. We weren't eloping, but it was a nice overnight stay and included the wedding officiate, a bridal bouquet and groom's boutonniere, sparkling wine from a local Virginia winery and the Inn Keeper, Sharon offered to be our unofficial photographer. Everything was lovely. Sharon set up the antique sitting room with white flowers and a place for the wine bucket and toasting glasses.
Holladay House is an old building. But they have kept it nicely and have updated the bathrooms and some rooms even include a jet tub. They have a beautiful formal dining room where breakfast is served. Because we brought the dog, our breakfast was delivered to our room. It was delicious. I'd really love to get the recipe for the crustless quiche she served. And the little puff pastry-like rolls with all the buttery layers were to die for.
Sharon and her family have thought of everything to make your stay perfect and has given us wonderful memories of our wedding day. Thanks Sharon!
