Wedding Wednesday: The Jennings Wedding

The Jennings Wedding | October 15, 2016 | Photography by: Matthew Thwing Photography

Todd and Tatiana ("Tigger") met through mutual friends when they were only teenagers. Fast forward to a few years later as they made their way to a Washington Capitals game, where Todd stole a few moments for them to stop by a beautiful field with pond and country backdrop. It was there Todd proposed.

Tigger and Todd wanted a country theme for the day, with a burgundy and ivory color palette. The bridesmaids wore cowboy boots while the groomsmen donned cream suits and burgundy ties to match the groom's burgundy vest. Their day turned out with beautiful weather, staring with Tigger and her best girls celebrating during the morning in their matching robes. A 1952 Ford pickup truck drove them to the ceremony and venue, while the couple was married beneath a flower-filled arch under sunshine. Decor included large picture displays and guests took home fresh jars of homemade apple butter as favors. One of Tigger's favorite memories is Todd smashing cake in her face! She adds she also loved their private dance as newlyweds; the two were able to reflect on their day and spend a quiet moment together in celebration.

Wedding Wednesday: The Buck Wedding

 Chad & Laura Buck | October 4, 2013 | Photography by Meagan C. Iwaniszek-Reynolds

After fate brought them back together after being separated for four years after they dated for one, Chad was able to propose to Laura in a unique way. Laura is prone to nightmares and dreams that often leave her waking in tears, so Chad bought her a dream catcher to ward off these night terrors. The dream catcher did more than that, because attached to it was Laura's engagement ring! The couple decided on a rustic country themed wedding with a peacock color scheme of black, purple and teal. These colors were carried throughout the flowers and centerpieces, which featured teal Mason jars as well as the colored lighting at the reception under the tent. The ceremony and reception were both held at Sundara, which Laura says gave them a very relaxing day in a peaceful environment to prepare for the wedding. It also gave her one of her favorite memories of the day: the perfect weather and beautiful view. Their close family and friends enjoyed the day with them and dined on 250 mini cupcakes as well as Brie and apple dip. Because Laura's mother is a travel agent, they had only the best of the best for their honeymoon. Chad and Laura vacationed in the Dominican Republic where they had their own personal butler to make the trip even more special.

Wedding Wednesday: The Mauck Wedding

Robert & Elizabeth Mauck | June 29, 2013 | Photography by Tara Lilly Photography & Design

After a heartfelt proposal one foggy night at the Mill Mountain Star, Elizabeth knew she wanted a traditional themed wedding. The color scheme was royal blue with teal and peach accents. One of the couples' favorite aspects of their wedding was the fire truck they rode on as they exited the Vinton War Memorial as a nod to Robert's profession. They also made sure to incorporate many elements honoring their family members as well. The mantle showcased wedding photos of Robert and Elizabeth's parents, grandparents, and siblings. Elizabeth's bouquet was bound with handkerchiefs from her grandmothers and great aunt. She also wore her mother's wedding shoes and sister's veil as her something old and borrowed. Her something blue was a pearl and sapphire bracelet from her maid of honor. In keeping with the traditional theme, Robert and Elizabeth did not see each other before the wedding but had a "first touch" instead to talk and pray together. The tables, where guests dined on an option of beef or chicken with various sides, featured a mix of lanterns, vases, and flower arrangements. Elizabeth was especially proud of the dessert, which was the ornately designed wedding cake she specially requested. The first dance to "I Love You This Big" by Scotty McCreery also had a unique touch. Before the dance, Robert took off his jacket to reveal his dress shirt with the Virginia Tech logo on the sleeves to support his alma mater. The couple wrapped up their evening with a sparkler send-off before leaving for their honeymoon in St. Lucia.
