Did you miss Part 1 of Cristen and Grant’s story? One of my favorite elements for this wedding was the rehearsal dinner BBQ, catered by Willard’s BBQ in Chantilly. It was held at the Lakeview Picnic Pavilion located on the property of the Dulles Marriott Hotel. What a hidden gem! The difficulty with renting picnic pavilions for private events is that some do not allow consumption of alcohol. This pavilion does! Willard’s even had gluten free options. What a great casual and affordable option!
