Are you concerned about not having enough decoration time on your wedding day? Do you feel like you need a few more hours to get things ready?

What about setting up the plate-ware on the tables, getting the beer, wine and mixers cold and getting that ceremony rehearsal out of the way? Would you like it if, on the day of the wedding, you could relax, enjoy your family and friends and maybe even get a couples massage as you prepare for the biggest day of your life?

Well, if you said yes to any one of these decoration questions then booking your Wedding on a Friday in 2017 On Sunny Slope is the best choice you could ever make! That’s right, I said you need to book a Friday Wedding at our local wedding venue in the Shenandoah Valley located in Rockingham County right on the city limits of Harrisonburg Virginia. Why you may ask?

Several Reasons:

  • We set up the venue for you on Thursday morning including the ceremony site. And put all the linens on the tables so that you can get everything ready the day before your Friday Wedding.
  • You get 4 hours of decoration time on Thursday FREE to come to the wedding venue and get everything preset.
  • We  open up the buildings for those 4 hours so that you can leave your stuff over night and use the restrooms if you need to during your rehearsal.
  • You get an additional hour (that makes 5) to have your ceremony rehearsal at the location of your wedding the next day.
  • After you ceremony rehearsal is over you can either head off to your rehearsal dinner at another location and we ill close everything up for you safe and sound OR you can add-on time to have your rehearsal dinner at our wedding venue for a small fee (based on number of people, amount of time and services needed)

Custom Transportation | Luxury and Convenience

Thanks to Custom Transportation my wife and I, along with two friends, had our first luxury limousine experience. It is something that everyone should get to do at least once in a lifetime.

A few days ago I heard about an event at Bella Luna. Mikey from the Mashita Food Truck and another chef at Bella Luna were offering a collaborative dinner. My wife and I, along with two friends of mine who own Greenberry’s Coffee & Tea, thought it would be a nice evening out.

I thought it would be a lot of fun if we went together in a limousine. Custom Transportation has been providing limousine and shuttle service for my special events venue to the brides, grooms and bridal parties for a while now. So they were the first ones that came to mind. Their limos are beautiful, their drivers are courteous and their service is convenient.

I called Megan and she lined up a 7 to 8 passenger luxury black limousine and driver to arrive at our house at the perfect time. Kim arrived decked out in her black driver suit and helped us in to the black leather expanse of the limo. There was a lit bar with glasses & napkins, an incredible sound system, a phone to talk to the driver, all kinds of buttons to raise windows and open sunroofs that I just had to play with and twinkly lights in the roof that looked like stars. It was awesome!

She dropped us off at the door of the restaurant and we walked right in without worrying about parking. It was fun to see the heads turn and feel special! She gave me her cell number and said she would wait nearby for our call to be picked up.

After dinner we called her and she was at the door again to pick us up. We had a very relaxing and fun ride home without a care.

I highly recommend you consider renting a limo from Custom Transportation for your special events or even one of the more common nights to make it special.

Thanks to Megan, Kim and Custom Transportation for making our Event Special.

Black White and Gold make this rustic chic wedding theme classic

This bride used very inexpensive materials and transformed the event tent into a very classy black, white and gold rustic chic wedding. Many of the items you see, like the Japanese paper globes, were left so that other brides can use them. Just ask when you book.
