After seven years, I am officially hanging up my clipboard to return to my first love of teaching high school English. It has been an honor to partner with each of our 104 families through the years to help create and celebrate their wedding days, and I am so thankful to the many vendors-turned-friends who have contributed to Shindig’s story.

I would be happy to provide vendor recommendations to any Charlottesville area brides; please send me an email at, and I will do my best to assist.

The inimitable Katie Kirkpatrick has relocated to North Carolina, where she is taking on a limited number of weddings both in C’ville and North Carolina. She may be reached at The Shindig Instagram account will hang around so as to give credit where it’s due to all of the many amazing collaborators with whom we’ve worked.

Thank you, Charlottesville, for all of the wonderful shindigging we have done together!

With gratitude, Meghan
