Peggy and Dan held their rehearsal dinner at the Walker Fine Art Center at Woodberry Forest. Woodberry is an all boys boarding school in the hills near Orange, VA and was founded in 1889 by Peggy’s great-grandfather. The school is quite special to Peggy and her family and what better way to share it with their friends and family than to have the rehearsal dinner and the wedding there!
Peggy, ever the fashionista, looked stunning in a gown by Dolly Pearl that she found at Bella Bridesmaid in Charleston.
Guests watch a slideshow of Peggy and Dan’s childhoods. I love watching these too and enjoying the universal nostalgia of childhood.

The art work is by Kelly Lonergan, the chair of the Fine Arts department at Woodberry Forest.
Friends and family sat at one long table that stretched through the gallery.
Peggy surprised Dan with not one, but two groom’s cakes! (I’m guessing they have a good rivalry going here.)
I love this fun shot during dinner!
