WV LIVING Debuts WV WEDDINGS issue at Charleston Wedding Expo

On January 4, 2009, WV LIVING participated in the Charleston Wedding Expo in order to promote its supplemental issue, WV WEDDINGS. WV WEDDINGS will be published this spring and will serve as the "Bridal Bible" for the state.  It will feature fabulous weddings, decorating ideas, unique reception sites, wonderful cake and floral design, picture perfect photographers and much more.  A special section called "The Wedding Register" will give West Virginia brides the opportunity to see their own wedding photos featured.  

The Wedding Expo was a smashing success!  More than 1,000 people passed through our booth. Thanks to Cakes by Becky, Betty Proctor, and Sharon Holcomb for their help!  And thanks to all of the brides who shared their enthusiasm for WV WEDDINGS!

Sensational Small Towns

When I first visited Lewisburg, I hadn’t even parked my car before I called my husband and said, “Pack our bags!  We are moving to Lewisburg!” I found myself slowly driving down the quaint streets looking for houses for sale. The town has a way of wrapping its arms around you. And then I visited Berkeley Springs…then Shepherdstown...then Elkins—the dilemma! I could have easily landed in any of those charming places. West Virginia is truly blessed with many incredible small towns, and with each issue of WV LIVING we will give you an inside look into these wonderful places and hopefully inspire you to visit.  You never know, you may even decide to call one of them "home."
