Wedding Wednesday: The McIntosh Wedding

The McIntosh Wedding | October 8, 2016 | Photography by: Lesley Wray

Christine Campbell and Jason McIntosh met after being introduced by Christine's sister and her boyfriend. The two met for dinner and have been together ever since. Jason later proposed on a trip to Nashville when the couple visited for New Year's Eve.

The unique centerpieces full of candles, deer antlers and pumpkins accentuated the rustic and classy theme of the wedding. With colors of antique gold, blush and ivory, and a naked cake covered in cupcakes, this outdoor wedding had many unique touches. The venue itself was unique because it was Christine's parents house on Smith Mountain Lake. Christine says that one of the most memorable parts of the day was being surrounded by friends and family, many of whom she had not seen in years. Another sweet and unique touch to the ceremony was when Christine's four sons walked her down the aisle to meet their new father.

Wedding Wednesday: The Nallen Wedding

The Nallen Wedding | September 24, 2016 | Photography by: Anna Bowser Photography

Jordan Clark and Michael Nallen met at a party in college where Michael's charm and wit had Jordan head over heels. The couple took a December trip to Colonial Williamsburg for Jordan's birthday where he proposed in front of a large mansion. Jordan says that her favorite part was when a man dressed in a colonial outfit took their picture.

The couple rented out their venue for the entire weekend so that they could use it for the rehearsal dinner and Sunday brunch as well as the wedding. Some of the unique touches to the wedding include Jordan's handwritten calligraphy centerpieces, signs and other small details throughout the venue. They also used biodegradable products and reusable mason jars for the reception, and recycled all of their flowers by taking them to a local nursing home. The bridesmaids also wore dark green dresses to match the groomsmen's ties, a detail that Jordan adores. Michael and Jordan spent months choreographing a dance to surprise their guests, and Jordan says that watching all of their hard work pay off is the best memory of the day!

Wedding Wednesday: The Hutto Wedding

The Hutto Wedding | October 24, 2015 | Photography by: Kemper Mills Fant Photography

Even though Cameron and Ben grew up only minutes away from each other, they didn’t get together for several years. Cameron had been out for a friend’s party, and she spotted Ben at the bar. Initially she had just stopped to say hi, but she ended up sitting next to him and talking for a while. By the end of the night they had exchanged numbers, and the rest was history.

Ben proposed in February, on an early hike to Roaring Run. The mountain had been the site of the first hike they went on together. While Cameron knew he would eventually propose, she was still shocked when he pulled out a ring. She was also happy, because she knew the right guy had found her.

Cameron’s favorite part of the wedding was having her friends and family to celebrate the day with. The ceremony took place in the church she grew up in, and the reception was at an inn down the street. Cameron and her bridesmaids even had a sleepover at the inn the night before the wedding! The whole thing felt like home, and that made it even more special for Ben and Cameron.

They used gold, white, and burlap for colors in their shabby chic theme, decorating with a lot of mercury glass and candles. They gave out honey as party favors from Ben’s dad and friend’s own bee farm. Cameron’s bouquet was an elegant arrangement of white roses, hydrangeas, and stephanotis.

Guests were able to enjoy six flavors of cupcakes, displayed on vintage cake stands. The tables were covered in tablecloths from her grandmother. A live band kept the dance floor packed, and a fire pit outside invited guests to flow from one spot to another.

Having the wedding in the same town both the bride and groom grew up was what made their wedding so special for them, and having so many friends and family there let them feel truly blessed. Friends hosted the bridesmaids’ luncheon the day before, and Cameron’s aunt and uncle hosted a brunch the day after so everyone could spend just a little longer together. Cameron and Ben couldn’t have asked for anything more.
