Elizabeth and Ryan 's Wedding

Several guests commented that they appreciated WeddingMapper. The many out of town guests loved Monticello, the Skyline Drive, the Downtown Mall, and the wineries. The wedding florist, Pattersons, was great. We did not use the Omni hotel as they told us we would have to pay for any reserved rooms not taken by guests.

Caterers

Surprisingly disappointing. Two of the 7 buffet items were changed to less desirable, cheaper items. The catering manager behaved unprofessionally in several ways. We had expected this to be the best part of the evening; it was the worst. So disappointing. The only recourse offered so far has been to change the price to reflect what we actually got. Didn't get what you wanted? Just pay for what you got, problem solved??? And in the end, their attitude was really bad, no real apology and no statement that this is not typical; it leads me to believe this is common practice. I will say the cake was great, but for the buffet, if you spend months going over the menu and stressing that a certain item is very important and you end up not getting it and the only explanation is Oh sorry I forgot to tell the chef then it's upsetting.

Florists

Outstanding! They made sure the flowers were exactly what we wanted. They even asked the size of the flower girl and style of her dress to make sure her flower basket was just the right size.

The ballroom is very pretty. If you want to use it with the UVA chapel, it can be hard to coordinate to get both. When we used it, the chairs were unattractive and we rented chairs.

It must be requested a year in advance; it's a beautiful, intimate chapel. One guest even asked if it was a European chapel that had been moved here. Some people said maybe the air conditioning wouldn't be adequate but on one of the hottest days of the year we were fine.
