The Pruitt Wedding | December 9, 2017 | Photography by: Heather Chipps Photography
Marybeth Jones and Bradley Pruitt met when they were children, after a mutual friend brought Brad to a function at Glade Hill Baptist Church. The two were not close throughout middle and high school, but after college and pharmacy school, the two were reunited at the same church thanks to the same friend. Not long after, Brad asked Marybeth for her number, and the two have been "inseparable" ever since. On the morning before the couple was to attend their friends' wedding, Brad said that he wanted to take Marybeth golfing before the festivities. On lucky hole number seven, Brad teed up the golf ball, and when Marybeth was about to tee off, she saw that the ball read, "Marry me?"
The couple did not expect for it to snow during their early-December wedding, but Mother Nature had a different idea. The snow made their special day all the more memorable. A tree-planting ceremony, locally-obtained decorations and centerpieces along with homemade salsa from the bride's family's garden allowed for the couple to create an occasion that celebrated not just their love, but the love that they share with those close to them. Marybeth and Brad's celebration was unique because of the sentiment behind nearly every detail of the wedding. The couple was married at the church where they met, and they chose Water's Edge Country Club as the venue for the reception because Marybeth had worked there throughout school. "It's just so comforting to be in a familiar place on your wedding day!" Marybeth says. Add in the bride's pearls from her maternal grandmother, a veil borrowed from her sister, a sixpence from Marybeth's aunt for her shoe and, of course, the unexpected snow, and the couple's day turned out to be memorable, meaningful and full of love from beginning to end.
