Wedding Wednesday: The Jarvis Wedding

JoAnna and Jason Jarvis | October 27, 2013| Photography by Sam Stroud Photography

JoAnna Sturgis and Jason Jarvis both shared an interest in photography while they worked for Canon in Chesapeake and they would later realize they also shared an interest in each other. Jason proposed JoAnna on their weekend getaway to The Greenbrier resort in West Virgina. In the middle of the couple's carriage ride Jason got on one knee as he popped the question and took JoAnna by complete surprise. The couple held a wedding that captured their personalities and tastes with a color scheme of gold and yellow, mint, grey, black and ivory. Decor for the day included large pom pom balls made out of moss as paper flowers hung from the trees that lined the brick aisle to the gazebo.

Wedding Wednesday: The Striffler Wedding

Emily and Brett Striffler | September 1, 2012 | Photography by Holly Cromer

Emily Jones and Brett Striffler met at Virginia Tech through mutual friends. A few years later, they were moving into their first home when they had an impromptu housewarming party - and Brett got down on one knee in front of all their friends! For their wedding, the couple wanted to showcase local Virginia artisans: foods, beers, and wines, to name a few. Emily described her wedding as a truly collective creative effort with talented friends and family. After their wedding, they made a quick getaway to Georgia, but are planning a vacation to Italy for their one year anniversary.
