Wedding Wednesday: The Duncan Wedding

The Duncan Wedding | December 16, 2016 | Photography by: Amanda Martin

Emma Nash and Caleb Duncan met at Blue Ridge Community Church. After bonding on a trip to Haiti and spending a couple of years with mutual friends, Caleb officially asked Emma out. The couple love to go to random places and dance; it became "their thing". On one such date at a local park, the two got out of the car, turned on the music and before Emma knew it Caleb was down on one knee.

Emma and Caleb say that their favorite memory from the wedding was that, despite the outdoor wedding 27 degree weather, all of the people they love were in one place. With a huge bridal party of 22 people, Emma says that one of the most unique features of the wedding is the comfortable, close environment felt in such a large group of people. Other unique features are the framing handmade wooden doors and pergola built by a family friend, and the chocolate-dipped wooden spoons that Emma made as wedding favors. They have the couple's name and wedding date burned into the handle, and a candy cane stick tied up with the wedding colors attached. The cake was made by Emma's aunt, who also made her parents' cake for their wedding. Between the family huddled under blankets, and the beautiful favors and cake, the Duncan's day sure is sweet!

Once she opened the smaller heart box at the bottom of the larger box he asked her to marry him. The couple held a charming country wedding as mason jars with candles hung from the trees and an antique claw tub was filled with beverages.

Wedding Wednesday: The Gibson Wedding

Christina and Thomas Gibson | July 7, 2012 | Photography by Sam Dean Photography

Thomas Gibson asked Christina Waters to be his girlfriend back in high school; more than a decade later, the two found themselves standing in the same spot as Thomas asked Christina to be his wife. The couple planned a rustic, yet elegant wedding for their real life fairytale. Christina sported a lace bridal gown and Thomas wore a khaki suit for the big day. The wedding had a color scheme of pale blue, brown and white where windows displayed seating assignments, wedding programs doubled as fans, and the table decorations were all handmade.
