Wedding Wednesday: The Tangney Wedding

The Tangney Wedding | October 8, 2017 | Photography by: Patrick Perkins Photography

Kylie Ress Met Ryan Tangney in downtown Roanoke in 2013, and their first date was at a local restaurant, The Quarter, where romance was as much on the menu as Louisiana cuisine. Since the couple love to take occasional day trips to Chateau Morrisette Winery in Floyd, VA, Ryan thought that this location would be perfect to propose to Kylie. He coordinated a trip to the winery, a trip that Kylie assumed would just be made up of fun wine tasting and picnicking. It turned out to be the best surprise of her life when, while posing for a photo, Ryan asked her to be his wife.

The couple's celebration was held in the garden courtyard of The Hotel Roanoke, with strings of lights and greenery accents to help create a neutral and elegant ceremony. Even though an outdoor ceremony can be risky with the threat of bad weather, the bride and groom had their hearts set on the location. Their timing was perfect: as soon as the ceremony concluded and guests began to make their way inside, it began to rain. Opting for something a little different from the traditional wedding cake, the couple chose to serve donuts on a stand that Kylie's father had made. The perfect location of The Hotel Roanoke allowed for guests to not only enjoy themselves while helping Ryan and Kylie celebrate becoming husband and wife, but explore downtown Roanoke during the weekend. The couple relished spending time with all of their guests. "Time spent with others is what creates the best memories!" Kylie says.
