On April 29th, 2011 Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot with an estimated 2 billion people tuning in to witness this momentous gala of commitment, love and matrimony. Across the pond at L’Auberge Provencale, in our own slice of Provence located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, we slipped in a private wedding ceremony for starry eyed couple Kim and Chuck. The guest count was only a modest two while the rest of the world’s eyes were glued to their televisions!
At L’Auberge Provencale, we recognize that the whole world doesn’t have to be invited to make it the wedding of your dreams. For couples looking for a more private affair, or who wish to “just do it already,” we are here to help with our Intimate Elopement Package. Just because you’re looking to elope doesn’t mean you aren’t entitled to a day you want to remember forever. Forget Vegas, City Hall and all the invitations! Pack a bag, call in sick to work, and let us do the rest!
Our Intimate Elopement Package includes everything you’ll need for your undisclosed event with all the bells and whistles for your perfect day. Enjoy a private wedding ceremony in our enchanting gardens, orchard, sweeping back lawn, or in front of a crackling fire in our sitting room in the cooler months. Don’t worry about a thing as we’ll even provide the bouquet and boutonniere for the bride and groom!
After your nuptials have been exchanged, toast each other with a glass of champagne and a sampling of hors d’oeuvres. Have a reception for two at a private, romantic and reserved table in the whimsical dining room of our award winning Northern Virginia Restaurant. A Five Course Dinner for two is included in the package price. Our Pastry Chef will complete the celebration with an unforgettable Wedding Cake for Two. Consummate your love in one of our romantic suites and enjoy a two night stay built-in to the package price. Wake up refreshed, rejuvenated and starry eyed in the morning to enjoy a multi-course gourmet breakfast in our sunny peach dining room.
Wedding planning services are included in the package as well. Our talented staff can customize your elopement and even arrange a professional photo shoot so that when you’re ready to share your day with friends and family you can recreate every moment. A special gift from the Innkeepers, a pair of commemorative L’Auberge Provencale Champagne Flutes, will ensure you’ll never forget your special day!
If mom and dad would never forgive you, we’ll allow up to eight guests to attend the ceremony, however, additional dinner and reception charges will apply. Our exclusive Intimate Elopement Package is available for a modest $1200 and alcohol, wines, taxes or gratuities are not included, unless otherwise stated.
To plan your special day please give our office a call at (540) 837-1375 to speak with our wedding coordinator.
