Virginia wedding

Antique Rustic Styled Shoot


openingpicAre you looking to have a rustic and unique wedding but can’t find everything you are looking for? Well do we have a treat for you! This hidden treasure is a SIGHT to see. Through the Garden Gate located right behind Hanover High School in Mechanicsville, Virginia is anything but simplistic! Upon arrival you get a glimpse of an old antique truck sitting outside greeting you. Walking inside is a cultural experience, the shop is filled from head to toe with custom items that you are able to take home with you. The owner is the sweetest person you will ever meet and will talk to you as if she has known you for years. The amazing part about this shop is the section set aside for wedding rentals. Don’t want to buy all those chalk boards and write on them yourself? That’s ok…. Through the Garden Gate has amazing products not only to purchase but FOR RENT.  Some items include arbors, old suitcases, old chalk boards with messages written out… and so much more. Take an hour and run by this custom gem! I swear you won’t regret it!
