Wedding Wednesday: The Leet Wedding

The Leet Wedding | April 22, 2017 | Photography by: Tara Lilly Photography & Design

Molly Webster and Jordan Leet attended the same high school, but they didn't become friends until college, when they reunited during a winter break. A few years after they started dating, the couple took a trip to Charleston, South Carolina, a place that Molly's family had vacationed and had many special memories. In front of the Pineapple Fountain, Jordan proposed, with Molly's sister and brother-in-law present to capture the moment with photos and a video!

On their rainy wedding day, the couple didn't care that it wasn't 100% according to plan. According to Molly, the whole day was "perfect," from the personalized vows to the dancing to the exit. Molly wore her mother's veil, and a table at the reception showed photos of the couple's family members on their wedding days. The romantic reception was accented with lavender floral arrangements and wreaths, and when it was time for the newlyweds' first dance, they swayed to Dave Matthews, Molly's favorite band. It was very important to the couple for their families to play a large role in their special day, so in an nontraditional move, Jordan had two Best Men and 4 groomsmen, while Molly's sister was her Matron of Honor and her brother the Man of Honor. "We wanted the siblings and friends that have supported us most standing beside us," Molly says.

Wedding Wednesday: The Tyson-Williams Wedding

The Tyson-Williams Wedding | October 22, 2016 | Photography by: Sue Campbell & Leanne Creger

Matthew Tyson and Erik Williams had an "extraordinary amount of luck on their side" when they found each other online. One night when Matthew was staying up late studying for a nursing school final, Erik surprised him by coming around the corner wearing a suit and holding a package. After managing to make both of them laugh and cry, Erik proposed with a Cartier engagement ring, exactly what Matthew always wanted.

Matthew says that his favorite part of the wedding was the recitation of the vows because they were taken from a passage in "Jane Eyre," his favorite book. Erik's favorite was the "warming of the rings" where the couple passed their rings around and asked guests to pray or bless them. Some other special aspects of the wedding include the books and paper items doubling as decor and gifts, and the "Harry Potter" themed cake topper and guest book. The Corinthian Ballroom added the charm of a library to the occasion, making the atmosphere even more magical. The couple says that the inclusion of their favorite activity, reading, into the reception and ceremony made the wedding unique.

Wedding Wednesday: The Millehan Wedding

The Millehan Wedding | May 21, 2016 | Photography by: Kevin Hurley Photography

Sara Clark moved to Roanoke in middle school; It was there, at school, that she met the man who would eventually become her husband. Chris Millehan and Sara formed a friendship during their middle school years and dated on and off until high school, where they decided all they ever wanted was to be with one another. The two went off to Virginia Tech together to further their education, and it was in Blacksburg, at the Duck Pond, that Chris waited for Sara and her friends, with ring, roses, and champagne in hand. The two say that they can't even remember what was said during the proposal, but all that mattered was the resounding "Yes!"

Sara and Chris pride themselves on their "fairy tale" love story, and thus it is no surprise that their wedding was an event full of love and tradition. The ceremony was held in a local church, which the two often frequented together. It was short, traditional, and perfectly showcased the couples mutual love for one another and for God. It was during their reception that the couple felt they should give back to their friends and family that have supported them through the years. So, the reception was "100% guest driven." Sara and Chris just wanted their guests to have fun and enjoy the celebration.

However, they made sure to stay true to themselves during the whole event. They served Sushi, their favorite meal, at their reception. Their caterer was even able to incorporate a family recipe into the menu. The couple's first date was at a Sushi restaurant that they were able to revisit on their wedding day. The owner has witnessed the two grow as individuals and as a couple, from their first date to their wedding day. There is a framed photograph of the couple hanging in the restaurant to this day.

One of the things that the couple was most thankful for was the quiet time they took for themselves between the ceremony and the pictures. The two of them escaped to a deserted Sunday School room and just basked in the excitement of being together and married at last. While they were on their small retreat, the rain, that was threatening to fall all day, finally fell, and the two said that that was the moment it really sank in that good things really do come to those who wait. By the time it was time for them to rejoin the party, the rain had stopped.
