Wedding Wednesday: The Gunn Wedding

The Gunn Wedding | November 12, 2016 | Photography by: Billie Jo Gwaltney Photography

Rebekah Bradley and Daniel Gunn met thanks to a summer internship at the North Carolina Senate. The couple went hiking, where they planned on taking pictures to commemorate their first hike up McAfee's Knob. Rebekah brought a camera and a tripod and after she set the timer to snap a picture of them with the scenery, Daniel got down on one knee. He managed to capture Rebekah's reaction to the proposal on camera, something that she loves.

The couple had only recently moved to Roanoke before the proposal, and Rebekah says that being able to show her out-of-town guests her new home made her wedding unique. Having the ceremony at the church that they joined shortly after moving was another special aspect for both Rebekah and Daniel. The two-tone bridesmaids dressed and the heavy greenery with white accents in the floral arrangements painted Rebekah's vision of late fall perfectly. Rebekah's favorite memory of the day was when her maid of honor sang "Ave Maria" at the wedding and gave Rebekah a chance to look around and really take in the day.

Wedding Wednesday: The Blake Wedding

Matt & Kallie Blake | October 12, 2013 | Photography by A.B.E. Photography

Matt and Kallie attended high school together, but it wasn't until 2011 that Kallie finally took Matt up on his date offer. One day, Matt took Kallie apple picking at his family's apple orchard. After separating to look for the best selection, Matt called Kallie over to his apple tree. She walked over to find his tree had no apples at all, but rather a bag hanging from a limb that read, "Will you...?" Matt then told Kallie that sometimes, just like picking apples, you had to go through the bad to get to the good and God must have handpicked her just for him. Kallie says her favorite wedding day memory was seeing everyone come together to celebrate, as well as dancing the night away with them! Kallie's twin sister was also her maid of honor, which was special to each of them. Due to the lovely proposal in the orchard, the wedding had a fall rustic theme. Guests were greeted with a grouping of corn stalks tied with burlap apple ribbon. For the ceremony, the archway was decorated with vines and orange blossoms, while the aisle had burlap bags with blooming mums and blue Mason jars with candles. Guest tables were numbered with leaf cut-outs perched in blue aluminum wire in a red apple. Centerpieces were a pot of fall ornamental peppers sprinkled with candy corn. Kallie also remembers having so much fun with guests on the dance floor that they paid the DJ a little extra to keep the party going! Kallie and Matt traveled to Gatlinburg for a few days for a fun getaway as the couple had just purchased a house.
