Micro Weddings Are the Future: Celebrate with Us!

For the past several years there has been a growing trend in small weddings for up to 50 guests, called micro weddings. A micro wedding has all the details of a traditional wedding but occurs on a smaller scale composed of the bride and groom’s nearest and dearest family and friends. Not all couples feel attached to every element of traditional weddings and micro weddings offer flexibility and freedom to implement the traditions that are most important in a perfectly crafted day.

Micro weddings have become a wonderful option for couples who don’t wish to postpone their wedding date. A micro wedding is not a compromise but a positive choice for the safety of the couple and guests while celebrating in a special and magical way. The luxurious Inn at Riverbend, located in scenic southwest Virginia, offers just that: a sincere and elegant celebration.

The gorgeous view of the New River is an extraordinary ceremony location. The team at the Inn at Riverbend has an award-winning wedding planning strategy complete with excellent vendors. The focus is on defining the couple’s preferences and making it happen which ensures a stress-free wedding day. Both all-inclusive packages include a professional photographer, officiant, caterer, florist, and choice of wedding cake. The Inn, specializing in small, intimate weddings with up to 50 guests, is the perfect destination micro wedding.

The “Just the Two of Us” package is a romantic elopement package for the couple to enjoy all of the amenities of a larger wedding with fewer expenses. The package is designed for simplicity and elegance. The location of the ceremony can be indoors in front of the natural stone fireplace, on the deck overlooking the meadow and river, or on the lower platform by the waterfall and pond. Additional unique touches include a gift certificate for a celebration dinner at The Palisades Restaurant, two keepsake Inn at Riverbend wine glasses, bedside chocolate-dipped strawberries and a bottle of champagne.

The “Just the Few of Us” package is best for couples looking for group lodging at the bed and breakfast as well as a breathtaking backdrop for the wedding.
