Wedding Wednesday: The Gregory Wedding

The Gregory Wedding | November 11, 2017 | Photography by: Chelsea Anderson Photography

Lacy Grindstaff and Garrett Gregory met in college, through the Baptist Collegiate Ministries at Virginia Tech. They became great friends quickly, and a romance soon followed. While taking Lacy on a tour of some of their most meaningful places in their relationship, Garrett was planning on asking Lacy to be his wife, and the tour ended on the Tech drillfield with a sweet letter and Garrett's proposal. "It was such a fun night because we got to relive the best parts of our relationship!" Lacy says.

Lacy and Garrett's special day was made picture-perfect thanks to an elegant color scheme of gold, champagne and blush, as well as a location that allowed the couple to get their favorite photo: their sparkler exit! The couple says that their wedding was unique because of all of the love that they experienced from the people that all gathered to support them. "To us, it felt uniquely joyful," Lacy says, "I would argue that we were uniquely blessed to be surrounded by so many people who were so genuinely joyful with us in celebrating out marriage." After the ceremony, which the couple viewed as the culmination of their excitement, the guests were handed out custom koozies and coffee favors, adding a fun and personalized spin to Lacy and Garrett's joyful day. "The joy that we felt is a feeling neither of us will ever forget!" Lacy says.

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.
