Wedding Wednesday: The Boothe Wedding

The Boothe Wedding | June 25, 2016 | Photography by: Ashley Lester Photography

Madison and Tyler attended the same high school, though they didn't become close friends until they were both working at the Salem Red Sox. After a couple years of friendship, the two became a couple. The day of Tyler's proposal, he picked Madison up for dinner and insisted on stopping by the Salem Red Sox to pick up their season tickets. Upon arriving, a friend told them all season ticket holders had pictures taken on the home plate for the program. They walked out onto the field while Tyler brought up how "this is where it all started" for them, when their song began to play, along with pictures displayed across the scoreboard. When Madison turned to question Tyler, she found him on one knee, with the screen reading "Will You Marry Me?" Madison of course said yes, thrilled at both the surprise and the pictures that later appeared from a friend who'd hidden to take photos during the proposal.

Their wedding was a combination of rustic and elegance, capturing their personalities. Madison says thanks to their vendors, their wedding was absolutely perfect. With numerous memories to choose from, Madison says opening her wedding gift from Tyler will always be high on the list. Tyler gave her a new bible with her new monogram, along with a bookmarked page for 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ("Love is patient..."). Reading that verse before walking down the aisle was emotional and happy, and she loves opening her bible to that special verse months and years later. Summer salad, dips, and other delicious items were a treat for guests, while her bridesmaids wore a gorgeous shade of aquamarine. Bouquets and centerpieces had soft pink tones that added to the day's romance, while a glowstick exit created fun for everyone celebrating with Madison and Tyler.

Wedding Wednesday: The Smith Wedding

The Smith Wedding | August 22, 2015 | Photography by: Pat Cori Photography

Jana and Cecil met while living in Radford, Va. She had just finished school, and he was working at Norfolk Southern in Roanoke. Jana says they were both “stubborn with each other for dating, but once it happened… we both knew it was definitely meant forever.”

The night Cecil proposed, he was running late. Jana had just gotten off work when he let her know he’d be late, but he wanted to go to dinner. Jana made it home and got ready, and then she waited. Two glasses of wine later, she was still waiting. When he finally came in, he got down one knee and asked her to go to dinner with him as his fiancé. Jana said “YES” of course, and then he asked her to marry him. At dinner, she found out why he was late: he’d been with her father in Christiansburg asking for his permission.

Jana’s favorite part of the wedding was when they were saying vows. Cecil went first, and his voice cracked with emotion. And then the bridal party all started crying too. Jana wiped the tears from Cecil’s face, and the pastor asked for the rings. The next moment felt like it was straight from a movie: his dad dropped the rings. Thankfully, things didn’t turn into a disaster; on the contrary, Jana feels like it made a perfect moment even more perfect.

Another one of Jana’s favorite elements from the day was the live band. She and Cecil had decided they wanted a live band before he even proposed, and it was everything they ever wanted. Their guests still give them comments about it!

The theme of their wedding was classic and simple, with ivory/rustic pink and gold/silver as their colors. Their centerpieces were antique silver trays and three mercury glass candle holders with piles of pink roses at the base.

There were two wedding favors in particular that Jana really loved. The first was a keychain that spelled LOVE and doubled as a bottle opener. There was a tag attached that said “A brew for one, a brew for two, let the ‘L’ove open for you! Enjoy!” courtesy of her mother. The second favor was a black and gold koozie that said “Best Day Ever.”

One of the reasons Jana and Cecil’s wedding was so special was because Jana and her mom planned everything themselves. Jana works as a wedding planner, so after four years of planning other people’s big days it was nice to plan her own. She called her mom with any plan or thought she had, and together they were able to bring everything together exactly how they wanted it with the help of some friends and family.
