What do Concrete – Old Cars – Yellow Cab – all have in common?

The Transportation Museum!!!!

The perfect backdrop for a rehearsal dinner or wedding.

Vinton War Memorial

This space is a very magical wedding space. Well designed with a great color palate, the decor is the perfect setting for any reception. If you are that bride looking for a space that screams elegance, but don’t want to spend an arm or a leg to get it, I highly recommend you take a look at the Vinton War Memorial.

You really don’t have to do much to have an over the top look, without the over the top budget!

Bart Starr – What an Honor

A true legend and a moving speaker, Bart Starr was in Roanoke last night at the Taubman Art Museum for an event hosted by Greystone Financial Group, MetLife. By The Way, JOB WELL DONE GUYS!!! I have never seen so many inspired and happy folks at an event that we have ever catered. A MEGA class act!!! Wonderful give-aways. Grown men were giggling and in awe (how could you be not?) standing and socializing around one of the football greats!  GO PACK GO!!!!

Friday Night Rehearsal Dinner at the O Winston Link Museum

How much fun was that!!!!!

Can it be done? Yes it can and it was!!

I wish I could take credit for the whole thing, but unfortunately I can’t! Kudos out to our staff for a job very well done!!!! Folks, this was no easy task, but believe it or not we transformed the lobby from an empty space to this!! All in one hour, yes I said ONE HOUR, along with a complete kitchen to boot!! A big THANK YOU to Joe and Elizabeth, proud parents and hosts of this event for believing in us. We wish them, the bride and groom an eternity of happiness!

Rockwood Manor

Photography by Jim schaal


 A beautiful outdoor venue not so far from home, just a short 45 minute drive from Roanoke in Dublin. This is where you will find true Southern hospitality: a manor built 130 years ago that has as much charm today as I am sure it did back then. Imagine being able to go back in time when life seemed a little easier, if only for a day, your biggest day! This day will be a day you will remember for the rest of your life!  Spectacular grounds, beautiful home, gorgeous views… this venue is a brides dream.
