Flowers & Cupcakes!

Valentine's Day is right around the corner! Here's a quick tip from Sango Village Florist about ordering your Valentine's Day Flowers: "Think twice before ordering flowers online from a place that offers such low pricing!! Or, like the ad in the Leaf Chronicle for 1-800 Flowers - all they do is overcharge you and send it to a local shop!! Call your local flower shop and get the flowers that your Valentine deserves!!" -Sango Village Florist,

Did you know that you can order not only flowers, but also cupcakes from Sango Village Florist? "Who wouldn't love to add some of these cupcakes to your Valentine's Day order?? Call us in advance to order your flowers AND cupcakes!!!" -Sango Village Florist,

Abigail & Austin: The Venue Featured Wedding: Abigail and Austin

Abigail and Austin got married last fall at Brightfield Farm. The day before the wedding, they set up their tables, etc inside the barn for their reception. Due to rain, they held their rehearsal dinner inside the house at Brightfield, but the next day, the weather was PERFECT, so they were able to have their ceremony outside in front of the barn, followed by their reception in the barn. We're sharing a few photos from the feature in this post but you can click here to view the full Featured Wedding on!
