Wedding Wednesday: The Driscoll Wedding
The Driscoll Wedding | November 11, 2017 | Photography by: Noah Magnifico Photographer
Aimee Tolbert and Chris Driscoll were just friends in high school until Chris realized that he needed a date to his senior prom. He jumped at the chance to plan an elaborate first date, and on Aimee's parents' farm, he set up canvases and paints. After painting a picture of the sunset, the two began their romance. One evening, Aimee returned home from work and discovered a ribbon winding through her home. At the end of this ribbon was a paintbrush and a note that read, "Follow Me." Aimee discovered that Chris was outside on one knee, and beside him was a canvas with words painted on it: "Aimee Tolbert, will you marry me?" Chris would not accept Aimee's "yes" until she had painted it on the canvas as well.
Because the couple graduated from Virginia Tech, they felt that it was a perfect place for them to exchange their vows. When the couple found while planning their wedding that their venue and chosen vendors were available on the same date, they took it as a "heavenly sign" that they should become one. Their special day reflected the importance of God, family and friends, while Aimee's brother-in-law serenaded the couple during the ceremony. It was an emotional moment as the couple "felt thankful to have found one another and embark on this journey together." Because the couple's Virginia Tech background is so important to them, they and the wedding party entered the reception to "Enter Sandman," and the Hokie mascot joined them for a dance during the reception, giving a unique and fun spin on a beautiful and meaningful day.
