Wedding Wednesday: The Mills Wedding

Jonathan & Krystal Mills | August 16, 2014 | Photography by Sherry Conrad Photography and Power by Wilson Photography & Planning

Krystal met Jonathan by chance one day when she chose to stay at the beach in Florida where she lived instead of leaving like she'd planned. Jonathan was just visiting, so a month later he returned to Virginia. After keeping in contact for several months, Krystal decided he was worth the move up north. A little over a year later, Jonathan sat Krystal down and played out a sermon that was close to his heart by washing her feet as Jesus had done to his house servant to show a sign of respect. Afterwards Jonathan presented Krystal with a custom made ring. The couple's wedding can be described as beautiful, emotional, sweet, and special. Krystal made sure to include many personal and meaningful elements on her big day. She read vows to Jonathan's children, and the oldest son Mason presented her with a wedding band from the children to go with her ring from Jonathan. This symbolized the family becoming one. Jonathan's mother made a quilt to be used as a guest book, and a blue truck from Jonathan's father was incorporated as a flower arrangement on the cake table. One of the most special elements was the piece of her father's shirt that Krystal had sewn into her dress above her heart so she would have him with her in spirit as she walked down the aisle. She also wore her grandmother's earrings from her wedding day, used a handkerchief of her great grandmother's, and tucked her father's red bandana inside her boot. It was also important to Krystal that décor for the wedding be practical. They used a lot of personal mementos collected from antique stores. A friend also made a lemonade stand for the reception that now stands in the couple's backyard.

Wedding Wednesday: The Trevillian Wedding

Mike & Kayla Trevillian | May 17, 2014 | Photography by Noah Magnifico

 After knowing each other since middle school and dating since senior year of high school, Kayla was very anxious for Mike to propose. The couple had shopped for rings and discussed prices, but Kayla thought the ring of her dreams was out of the question. On their fourth anniversary, they agreed no gifts would be exchanged, but Mike had other plans in mind. He surprised Kayla at her house with a Prince Charming teddy bear and, yes, the ring she picked out. Kayla wanted to her wedding to be as simple and laidback as possible, but still have loads of character. She was able to keep her wedding country chic-themed with the farm setting for the outdoor ceremony and barn setting for the reception as well as the cowboy boots donned by everyone in the wedding party. She continued to keep with the theme by buying nothing new as a decoration. Along with her mother and Mike, she hand selected glass bottles and flasks found in antique shops to use for centerpieces and old brooches to decorate her bouquet. Rustic hanging lanterns, wine barrels, antique candelabras, and even the old Chevrolet pick-up truck completed the décor. They also made sure to keep their wedding personal as well as unique. Kayla asked her uncle to become ordained in order to perform the ceremony, which she says was far from traditional and very memorable because of him. Her brother also gave a very special improvised speech at the wedding, mentioning how Kayla and Mike are the perfect balance for one another.

Wedding Wednesday: The Tice Wedding

Justin & Ashley Tice | August 31, 2013 | Photography by Tiffany Maxfield Photography

Justin and Ashley first met in high school. A month after they had a class together, he asked her to prom and the rest was history. For his proposal, Justin had a little help from their cat, Bella. He'd made dinner for Ashley and as she talked about her day, she bent down to say hi to Bella and noticed a piece of her baby blanket on the cat's neck. Her gorgeous ring was attached and before he could even ask, she shouted "Yes!" Ashley describes her favorite moment of the wedding when she walked down the aisle towards her future husband. The preacher read a poem in honor of her father, while her brother gave her away; she wiped away Justin's tears and cried with him and she knew that was the happiest moment of her life. Many of the details of their wedding were handmade, including signs and borrowed antique furniture and china. Ashley spent months thrift store shopping and crafting, plus her bridal party helped with calligraphy and more. An old door was made into a chalkboard for the dinner menu, while an old frame became a chalkboard wedding program. Ashley's favorite part of the details were her handmade wedding invitations. Their vintage country wedding took place on a farm overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, with hay bale seating for the ceremony. Centerpieces were candleholders with lace and pearls, while mismatched flower vases were filled with wildflowers and greenery grown during the summer. Some tables also had books and dollies to add height to the vases. Guests were welcomed to the candy bar with everything from Skittles to gummy bears and personalized suckers. Ashley's mother cooked all the food, including fried chicken, pork loin, green beans, mac and cheese and more, while her aunt made apple pies and peach cobblers. The newlyweds took a cruise honeymoon that stopped in Roatan Honduras, Belize, and Cozumel Mexico.
