Before long, spring will show up at Smith Mountain Lake, bringing beauty of a blooming landscape, the brightness of summer, and....weddings! Which means now is the time for brides and grooms to plan the what, when and where of their big day.

You’ve spent a long time envisioning high ceilings, open entertainment areas, a wine cellar, theater, custom cabinetry, additional bedrooms for your growing family, bathrooms with special tiling, kitchens with granite countertops, and especially those small touches such as crown molding and wainscoting that complete a high (0 comments)
