Wedding Wednesday: The Crawford Wedding

The Crawford Wedding | November 4, 2017 | Photography by: Demi Mabry Photography

Lauren Grantz and Lee Crawford met through mutual friends after Lauren moved to Roanoke for nursing. They hit it off immediately, and they went to Blue 5 on their first date. Neither of them knew that, as their relationship developed, it would end up being the spot for their wedding rehearsal dinner as well. One night, Lee took Lauren out to Luigi's, their favorite date spot. When they returned home and Lauren went to let the dogs outside, she saw that their side porch was decorated with an array of candles, confetti and tulle. All of a sudden, she also saw that both her and Lee's parents had arrived from out of town. Before she could ask Lee what was going on, Lee was already down on one knee with a ring, popping the question to a surprised yet enthusiastic Lauren.

To keep their wedding simple, elegant and classic, the couple opted for a color scheme of black, white and gold. The wedding, held at Hotel Roanoke, made it very easy for the out of town guests to find somewhere to stay for the festivities. The couple also chose to give guests boxes of Krispy Kreme doughnuts for either a late-night snack or breakfast on the go, which was also perfect for traveling guests. Lauren's favorite part of the day was when Lee dropped the rings during the ceremony, which ended up breaking the ice a little bit and making everyone laugh. "We had no idea things like that actually happen!" Lauren says. The simple, stress-free nature of the joyful occasion allowed for the happy couple to just relax and enjoy their day and prepare for the rest of their lives together as husband and wife.

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 Taylor Wedding

The Taylor Wedding | October 14, 2017 | Photography by: Jasmine White Photography

Despite growing up only 20 miles from each other and attending West Virginia University at the same time, Michelle Cofer and Nathan Taylor did not officially meet until one summer night while they were bowling. Because of their obvious chemistry, when they met again a year later, Nathan made sure that they exchanged numbers, and they have been together ever since. Since their relationship was built on trust and honesty, the open channels of communication would make it hard for a wedding proposal to be a surprise, or so Michelle thought. But when Michelle was helping Nathan unpack the groceries after Nathan ran out to grab items to make breakfast one morning, she was surprised to find a little silver box in the bottom of one of the bags. In the box was her dream ring, and Nathan got down on one knee and asked Michelle to be his wife.

Michelle cherishes the memory of seeing her husband's face as she walked down the aisle. She felt no nerves and no worries, just a calmness in knowing that she was walking toward her best friend and future. "It was breathtaking," Michelle says. The ceremony, dubbed the "Marilyn Monroe Wedding" due to its classic details, had a color scheme of black, white and grey with red roses as accents. These roses are very meaningful to the couple: since their relationship was long distance for over a year, every time Nathan visited Michelle, he would bring her a  dozen roses. The elegant outdoor ceremony was unique due to the stunning arrangements, and the reception was magical, thanks to tables lined with candles and rose centerpieces. The perfect day was made even more special because many of the guests came from all over the country to help Michelle and Nathan celebrate the joyous occasion.
