Wedding Wednesday: The Baker Wedding

The Baker Wedding | June 17, 2017 | Photography by: Pat Cori Photography

Katie Hall's matron of honor had been telling Scott Baker about her for a while until he finally met her for himself at her matron of honor's bachelorette party, where he showed up with one of his friends. "I knew he was the one," Katie says, and the couple soon became inseparable. When Scott and Katie were visiting the idyllic Ocean Isle, NC for their annual vacation, the couple went out for dinner and then drove to the secluded Bird Island to watch the sunset. Walking on the beach with Scott, Katie turned to make her way back down a sand dune and found Scott down on one knee. "It was perfect!" Katie says.

For their special day, the couple really wanted to have a creative, one-of-a-kind ceremony. Katie, who says that she appreciates clean lines and artsy details, found that the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke was the perfect venue. To help create their dream wedding, Katie opted for a striped dress that made a bold statement, as well as a bouquet of king proteas that was as heavy as it was stunning, leaving Katie's arms sore the next day! Katie and Scott felt that the most important thing for their wedding was that the guests have fun, and so they incorporated elements such as a dance-friendly DJ, glowsticks for a fun and unique exit and  little bags of pretzels that each guest took home that read, "Thanks for helping us tie the knot!" The couple was excited to have a wedding that was different than other weddings that they'd been to. "We wanted to give our guests a fun experience that they'd never forget," Katie says. From the modern and creative venue to the dancing and glowsticks of the reception, Katie and Scott created the perfect event to start their lives together with their friends and family partaking in the festivities. "I feel so lucky to have such great people in our lives and that they took the time to come celebrate our big day!" Katie says.
