Wedding Wednesday: The McAfee Wedding

The McAfee Wedding | November 5, 2016 | Photography by: Sweeney & Sons Photography

Kristen Chapman met Tim McAfee after her brothers encouraged her to go out with their old co-worker from the golf industry. The couple's first month together was all about early morning runs, attending church and going out to dinner. It comes as no surprise then that Tim decided to propose on a trip to Virginia Beach for a half-marathon. Traffic set it back a couple hours -Tim wanted to propose as the sun set on the beach- but he was still able to ask at the hotel before they went out to dinner. The couple spent the whole weekend celebrating.

Kristen and Tim say that their favorite part of the wedding was the washing of the feet ceremony that they performed with their son, Andrew. It is a symbol of their service to each other as a family and represents their love and support of one another. Two of the most unique features of the wedding were the sunny November day that felt more like springtime and the inclusion of Kristen's father, who blessed the wedding by reading a poem and saying a prayer for the future of the couple.

Wedding Wednesday: The Eller Wedding

A.J. & Sarah Eller | June 28, 2014 | Photography by Autumn Harrison Photography

 One night at a concert, A.J. made a brave move and decided to talk to the girl behind him, but all he could come up with was "I bet I know when your birthday is!" (The two had mutual friends at the concert, and earlier that evening her birthday had come up in conversation, which prepared him for his pickup line!) The two continued to talk all night long and in the following days over the phone. A few weeks later they went on their first date and have been together ever since. With a little help from Sarah for the venue and time, A.J. planned a weekend getaway at an inn in Asheville, North Carolina. They enjoyed a full day of breakfast, driving, hiking, and a beautiful dinner. After dinner, the couple sipped on wine near fire pits before taking a photo by a waterfall. A.J. took Sarah's hands in his to share some meaningful words before handing her an envelope which held his concert ticket from the night they met. As Sarah read the words "Will you marry me?" on the ticket, A.J. bent to one knee. Their garden party themed wedding was centered around their lakeside venue at Smith Mountain Lake, which offered surrounding views of the mountains. Bistro tables, Adirondack chairs, and a vintage wedding lounge served as décor as well as seating for guests to enjoy their day on the lake. It was important that guests have fun while in attendance, so games like corn hole, lawn Jenga, and bocce ball were set up on the lawn. Gray, white, and yellow set the color scheme for the wedding, which tied the games, décor, and scenery all together. They also had a fire pit for making s'mores, which served as the wedding favors, and a bar was set up to greet guests with a drink. For the ceremony, a window frame draped with white linens and flowers served as the arch. Jars filled with ivory peonies, ranunculus, and spray roses hung from hooks lining the aisles alongside white chairs. This set the scene for Sarah's most memorable moment: seeing A.J. at the end of the aisle. For the reception, the pavilion was covered in garden lights to create a romantic venue for guests to enjoy great music and food. After their sparkler sendoff and boat getaway, the couple honeymooned in Antigua.

Wedding Wednesday: The Powell Wedding

Robert & Ashley Powell | May 24, 2014 | Photography by Katelyn James Photography

From high school to college sweethearts, Ashley and Robert have been somewhat inseparable since meeting in middle school. They attended their senior prom together and also started and graduated college together at Virginia Tech. Robert felt nervous about devising the perfect surprise for Ashley as a proposal since they'd been dating for five years. He decided the right time was during a weekend trip to North Carolina that she suggested and planned, so she wouldn't suspect a thing. He quickly jumped into action asking for her parents' permission before the trip and making a plan for the big moment. After having dinner at one of their favorite restaurants, Robert suggested an impromptu photo shoot in the Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden nearby. After taking a few photos and reassuring her the blinking light just meant the camera was broken and not in video mode, Robert faced Ashley toward him as he got on one knee. Ashley chose an elegant romantic theme with Charleston, South Carolina charm for the wedding, which was set with the incorporation of the bouquets and flower arrangements that were exactly what she envisioned! One of her other favorite aspects of the wedding was the first look. Being traditionalists, they were unsure about this element but it gave them special time to pray together and take photos alone and with their wedding party before the ceremony began. It was important to them that they have their ceremony inside a church as they both grew up attending church, and they were even able to have their pastor officiate. They also enjoyed dancing at the reception where they got to see all their friends and family members come together in one place to celebrate. One very unique element was the trolley that took guests through downtown Roanoke from one venue to another.
