FIRST, we'd like to welcome our newest Barn venue in SW VA. Windsong Barn at Konnarock and the owners Laurie Lindsey Williamson Stoermann & her husband Rick Stoermann! What started out as a venue for their daughters wedding last fall bloomed into a new venture for them!!! They will be having a OPEN HOUSE SOON, but if all the venues you have looked at are booked AND you want a beautiful venue, with a beautiful view then please contact them before they are booked up!. Also if you'd head over to their page and show them some Love and give them a Like I'm sure they would appreciate it!
A Dj service or any other make sure you know your service provider!
Our legitimate professional DJ's deserve far more credit for the outstanding service they provide and the professional level of business ethics and ability. I h...esitate before posting stories like this in fear it will take away from our qualified pros, BUT on the hand, I hope it will motivate more venues and vendors to develop stronger, better relationships with their amazing, PROVEN DJ's and make sure they are getting supported and referred.

One of Southwest Va's beautiful Venues Historic Locust Hill Manor Est. 1850
Brides & Grooms BEWARE! The wedding venue you select could cost you a fortune in hidden fees. IS YOUR VENUE PROTECTING YOUR WEDDING INVESTMENT? Find out which SouthWest Virginia wedding venues qualify for the Fair Practices Venues badge on VAWENetwork.com. https://www.vawenetwork.com/wedding-venues/
FAIR PRACTICES VENUES:
1.Do not charge vendors hidden fees to work at the venue
2.Do not charge couples hidden fees or added fees outside of the contract
3.Do not force you to hir...e certain vendors (this may lead to kickbacks, hidden fees, preferential treatment for vendors willing to pay fees, not based on talent & professionalism). All fees should be open, transparent and in your written contract.
4. Do not interfere with your vendors ability to fulfill their contracted obligations.
5. They do not allow 3rd parties to charge vendors fees. Ex: forcing couples to work with an exclusive planner, the planner requires the couple to book certain vendors, those vendors must pay fees, the nature of the fees are obscure and the relationship is biased or unregulated creating a conflict of interest and once again, those costs are passed on to the couple.
6. They do not create an unsafe or hostile work environment
7. They protect the investment of the bride & groom by requiring all vendors working at the wedding or providing essential services must be licensed and insured.
8. They do not force vendors to advertise in promotional material for the venue which can result in hundreds/thousands of dollars in fees for the vendor, fees that get passed along to the client.
Fair Practices policies are formed and influenced by thousands of wedding industry venues and vendors in DC, MD, VA, WV, PA, TN, NC. It is not up to one person to decide what constitutes Fair Practices, it is a wedding community effort. If you would like to contribute to the Fair Practices program please contact VAWENetwork.com here: https://www.vawenetwork.com/contact-vawe-network/
