Wedding Wednesday: The Dalton Wedding

The Dalton Wedding | September 10, 2016 | Photography by: Sam Stroud Photography

Ashlee Washburn and Matthew Dalton met while they were in high school. Matthew proposed on the Crim Dell Bridge on the William & Mary College campus because of the local legend that says that if two lovers meet and kiss in the middle of the bridge, they'll be together forever. This is also why they chose to have their First Look on the bridge outside the wedding venue.

The couple had a traditionally romantic ceremony with a more modern reception, something that was a total hit with the guests. Many of Ashlee's friends still tell her that it was the most fun they have ever had a wedding reception! Because the couple accidentally chose their wedding date to be the same as the Battle at Bristol football game, Virginia Tech alum Matthew chose "Enter Sandman" as the couple's reception introduction. Guests were able to take a break from all the fun and signature old-fashioned cocktails to peek into the restaurant next door for game updates!

Wedding Wednesday: The Mixon Wedding

The Mixon Wedding | July 30, 2016 | Photography by: Amber Perdue

Ashley and Clark first met on a dating app. The proposal happened when Clark wanted to get Ashley a gun for Christmas as a joke. They ended up buying it, and when Ashley opened the box thinking it was part of the joke, she found a ring in its place. Clark got on one knee and proposed in front of his whole family.

Ashley took several small moments to really remember the ceremony, and she says that this was her favorite part. Seeing her soon-to-be husband down the aisle with tears in his eyes, and then dancing with friends and family really make the day special. She also shared the day with her sister by helping to set up a surprise engagement during the bouquet toss. Ashley did a pretend toss and handed the bouquet to her sister, only to turn her around to her boyfriend on one knee. "It made our day even more special," Ashley says. "The day was filled with love and future family!"
