Wedding Wednesday: The Tangney Wedding

The Tangney Wedding | October 8, 2017 | Photography by: Patrick Perkins Photography

Kylie Ress Met Ryan Tangney in downtown Roanoke in 2013, and their first date was at a local restaurant, The Quarter, where romance was as much on the menu as Louisiana cuisine. Since the couple love to take occasional day trips to Chateau Morrisette Winery in Floyd, VA, Ryan thought that this location would be perfect to propose to Kylie. He coordinated a trip to the winery, a trip that Kylie assumed would just be made up of fun wine tasting and picnicking. It turned out to be the best surprise of her life when, while posing for a photo, Ryan asked her to be his wife.

The couple's celebration was held in the garden courtyard of The Hotel Roanoke, with strings of lights and greenery accents to help create a neutral and elegant ceremony. Even though an outdoor ceremony can be risky with the threat of bad weather, the bride and groom had their hearts set on the location. Their timing was perfect: as soon as the ceremony concluded and guests began to make their way inside, it began to rain. Opting for something a little different from the traditional wedding cake, the couple chose to serve donuts on a stand that Kylie's father had made. The perfect location of The Hotel Roanoke allowed for guests to not only enjoy themselves while helping Ryan and Kylie celebrate becoming husband and wife, but explore downtown Roanoke during the weekend. The couple relished spending time with all of their guests. "Time spent with others is what creates the best memories!" Kylie says.

Wedding Wednesday: The Dawley Wedding

The Dawley Wedding | September 24, 2016 | Photography by: Kemper Mills Fant Photography

Lauren Ammar and Troy Dawley met at Carilion Clinic where they had an instant connection. Despite having a bit of a long distance relationship (Troy in Texas and Lauren in Virginia), the couple brought a new light into each others lives. Troy proposed on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Italy. Early one morning on a dock in Venice, Troy hired a photographer to capture the moment and asked the question just as a boat full of people floated by and cheered for the happy couple. They spent the rest of the trip celebrating.

Troy says that his favorite part of the wedding was during the ceremony when he was watching Lauren walk down the aisle because he "couldn't wait to be her husband.". The rich wine and gold mixed with floral patterns made the wedding a perfect transition from summer into fall. Mixed china and "his and hers" cocktails added charm during the reception. Guests were delighted by the choreographed father-daughter dance as well as the first husband-wife dance, adding a special uniqueness to the whole day.
