Wedding Wednesday: The Solomon Wedding

The Solomon Wedding | September 2, 2017 | Photography by: Chris Jackson Photography

Adrian Solomon was hosting a cooking class at his apartment when he met Sydney Myers. The two hit it off and exchanged phone numbers at the end of the night, not knowing that their shared interest in food would be the beginning of the rest of their lives together. While on a trip to France and Italy a matter of months later, the couple was driving up a mountain and stopped to walk down a path that had a stunning view of the sea. On the opposite side of the road, Adrian had set up a camera to hopefully capture his proposal. When Sydney turned from admiring the view, she found Adrian down on one knee with a ring, asking her to be his wife. Adrian's camera ended up running out of memory, but the moment turned out to be so memorable, the couple didn't even need it.

The couple's chose the Taubman Museum to be the venue of their unique travel-themed wedding, which celebrated the diverse culture of the families involved. To represent the couple's favorite genres of food, the cuisine was served at food stations: a pasta bar, a taco bar and a steakhouse station, preceded by "lumpia," a well-known food in Filipino culture as an appetizer. During the wedding, Adrian surprised Sydney and their guests with a live performance of "Wagon Wheel," and the couple enjoyed dancing with their close friends and family throughout the evening.

Wedding Wednesday: The Brockman Wedding

The Brockman Wedding | June 13, 2015 | Photography by: Jolly Jen Photography

When Thomas rolled into his first day at high school in a flashy red car, Carly couldn’t take her eyes off him. Despite being two years older, he was still instantly attracted to Carly as well. The two became high school sweethearts quickly and dated for a steady and loving eight years. It was after those eight years that Thomas decided to propose to Carly at her parents’ home where they all popped a bottle of champagne and agreed that it was about time that the two got married.

The wedding day was decorated with the theme of vintage and was complete with old post cards, birdcages and wine barrels. The decorates were appropriately decorated in accenting colors of champagne and petal pink. They kept the food traditionally southern style and served their guests with a delicious macaroni and cheese bar. The cake was the real showstopper, though, and was made of red velvet with buttercream frosting.

Despite the rain from the day, everyone had a great time and moved under the tents to stay dry. One of the best moments from the event was, actually, the bride and groom dancing in the rain. The couple’s send off was in a golf cart since the groom was a golfer. The newlyweds rode off under sparklers and their guests sent them off with well wishes. As redemption for the rain that day, the sky painted a stunning rainbow over the two as they headed into their future.

Wedding Wednesday: The Moore Wedding

Meredith and Landon Moore | December 8, 2012 | Photography by Rabiah Khwaja Gohar Photography

Meredith Hite and Landon Moore may have grown up in the same area and attended the same high school, but the two didn't officially meet until years later. A week before Valentine's Day Landon walked through the door holding roses, but it was far from an early Valentine's Day gift. Landon barely made it through the floor before getting on one knee and proposing. The Moore's wedding was like a winter wonderland featuring greens and white flowers with gold accents and stained-glass Christmas ornaments as favors. The couple wanted to use local vendors that were special to them because they wanted to show their guests how much they loved Roanoke.
