Davis & Elkins College's hospitality services is hosting the Highlands Wedding Expo at the Halliehurst and Graceland mansions from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Feb. 23, the college recently announced.

 Clark Evans, event organizer and Graceland innkeeper said the expo provides attendees an opportunity to get started with wedding planning.

 "It's never too early to become familiar with not only the exceptional range of services available at the College, but also the many outstanding businesses that comprise our local community," Evans said in the news release.

Evans said wedding planning can be difficult, especially if one just focuses their efforts online, the news release further states.  

"It's hard to tell what locations feel like or how certain arrangements can set the mood," Evans said, noting local business representatives specializing in areas including flowers and formalwear will be at the expo to answer questions.

"Attendees will also be able to see first-hand the beautiful settings available at D&E's historic Graceland and Halliehurst mansions," Evans said, further adding that the expo will feature tours of two Victorian homes, which are available for weddings, dinners and receptions.  

"Anyone planning a wedding will benefit from the expo," he added. "We will have every aspect of the planning process on site."
