Wedding Wednesday: The Nagel Wedding

The Nagel Wedding | August 20, 2016 | Photography by: Bram Vandermark

Josiah and Kelly first met at Liberty University where they were paired together as lab partners, leading them to talk daily and hang out more together. Josiah finally asked her on a date and Kelly was ecstatic, calling it a wonderful day she'll never forget. Fast forward to Christmas break 2015, when Kelly went to Josiah's home to visit. After a movie, they took a ride on the metro into DC, where they ended up by the Washington Monument. It was then Josiah told Kelly all the reasons why he loved her and proposed.

The couple's favorite wedding day moment was a culmination of the people who were involved and spoke during the ceremony and reception. Josiah's uncle officiated the ceremony, while Josiah's father read a bible verse during the wedding along with a toast, followed by more toasts by Kelly's father and the maid of honor and best man. Josiah and Kelly gave their guests magnet favor, designed by Josiah and his brother. Kelly's colors of purple, navy blue and cream came to life beautifully with bouquets and centerpieces, along with her shoes and the bridesmaids' dresses. Kelly and Josiah kept their wedding traditional with a focus on God, while they wanted their reception to be fun and full of laughter. As they love the outdoors, their unique ceremony at Natural Bridge provided a stunning backdrop (Kelly said as they soon as they saw the spot, they knew it was perfect and it was the only venue they looked at!).
