We are located in Central Virginia--our brides and clients have mainly come out of the Tidewater and Hampton Roads areas. However, we proudly work with Richmond (and surrounding areas), and Northern VA, Maryland, and District and Columbia clients also!  As destination wedding specialists, we will be happy to travel to all points beyond...

 

For each event, A Friend's Touch Events will ensure that the best team of wedding/event assistants are put together to carry out our clients' visions from concept to fabulous reality! 

We also take enormous pride in helping our fellow event vendors in elevating their businesses through our own two industry networking groups,

Wedding and Event Professionals of Virginia (WedPros) and the

Event Decor Designers (EDD) Collective!
