Wedding Wednesday: The Edmonds Wedding

The Edmonds Wedding | June 3, 2017 | Photography by: Heather Chipps Photography

Erin Brookshier had no idea that she was on a blind date when a close friend (who would end up being a bridesmaid!) picked her up with a few others for a casual game of recreation league soccer. She hit it off instantly with someone who was already in the car: Rob Edmonds. Their connection was immediate, and he called her the very next day to ask her out on their first official date. One early Saturday morning at 3 a.m., Rob and early-bird Erin (who is often up before dawn, as a morning reporter at WSLS10) hiked together to the Peaks of Otter, a hike that Erin's family had done many times in her childhood. When they reached the top of the trail, Rob proposed to Erin with the sunrise as their only audience. The "excited" future bride and groom then hiked back down to enjoy a huge celebratory breakfast.

Erin and Rob celebrated their special day by acknowledging the importance of family. A tree-planting ceremony, where Rob and Erin brought soil from each of their parents' homes, symbolized the two families becoming one. In addition to the tree-planting ceremony, the couple partook in "burying the bourbon," an old southern tradition to ensure good weather on the wedding day. Even though the weather forecast predicted rain for the whole week, the Edmonds wedding took place on a 92-degree Saturday beneath a cloudless sky. The beauty of the wedding ceremony itself was in the details: the couple's "pre-wedding bonding time" where they created their own centerpieces, Erin's veil (it had been her mother's at her wedding in 1984) and Erin's father's cufflinks, which she had given to him as a gift the night before the wedding. These cufflinks, which Erin thought "were very special," read on one side, "I'll always be your little girl." In addition to an enchanting venue and entertainment services, these small details played a integral role in the celebration of two families becoming one.

Wedding Wednesday: The Bartley Wedding

The Bartley Wedding | November 5, 2016 | Photography by: Noah Magnifico - Photographer

Matt and Shannon met thanks to, and just in the nick of time, as Shannon had debated giving up online dating. Matt sent her a message that quickly led to a first date on St. Patrick's Day. Matt won her over on her birthday, later in April, with flowers and a gift along with a donation to one of her favorite charities. A year and a half later, Matt wanted to surprise her with a proposal. Matt, a choir director, invited Shannon to his group's Christmas production, where she was called up at the end of the show and given a mug with an inside joke. While opening the gift, Matt snuck on stage behind his cast and they parted to reveal him. While a student sang "I Can't Help Falling in Love With You," Matt launched into his commitment to her and his desire to be with her always. Shannon said yes before he'd even finished asking.

The couple's favorite wedding day memory took place during the ceremony when they tied their unity braid, which was attached to a large cross. It was a special item for them because it was handmade by a good friend, and a great symbol of their intentions to keep God in their relationship. Because Matt is a vocal director, he hand-selected a few students to perform as a small choir during the moment. The newlyweds wanted a fall theme, with rich colors in the decor and flowers. Shannon's mother walked her down the aisle, while Shannon's sister was her Matron of Honor. Matt's father was his best man, while their pastor has been Matt's mentor for over twenty years. Because their first date was on St. Patrick's Day, guests received scratch lottery tickets as favors, with a personalized "lucky in love" stamp and thanks on each envelope. Because Matt is a big fan of socks, he picked out a pair for each of his groomsmen, and wore his own Virginia Tech socks to support the team on football game day. He also bought personalized ammunition cans for the boys, stored with snacks and other goodies to get through the day. Matt also made the centerpieces, with artificial pumpkins and flowers that would later be used in their own home during the fall season.

Wedding Wednesday: The Wilkerson Wedding

The Wilkerson Wedding | October 10, 2015 | Photography by: Pat Cori Photography

After meeting at the gym, Melissa and Jessica started hanging out with mutual friends. They started taking trips together, and it was on one of these trips to Hilton Head, S.C. that Jessica proposed. On their last day, while Melissa was packing, Jessica started telling her how much she loved her and wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. Melissa turned around and saw Jess on one knee. Melissa said “Yes!” of course, and they spent the day at the beach to celebrate.

Melissa’s favorite part of the wedding was walking towards the aisle. The mountains sat in the background, her dad was waiting to walk her down the aisle, Jess was waiting at the arbor for her, and their friends and family surrounded them.

They went with a rustic chic theme for the wedding, pairing navy, gold, and wine red with the natural fall scenery around them. The centerpieces were white and orange boo pumpkins. They set up bistro tables along the sides of the pavilion, topping them with mirrors and candles dipped in gold glitter.

Their wedding was also very intimate. Melissa walked down the aisle to “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri; they had a sand ceremony to commemorate two becoming one, a reading of the poem “I Love You” by Roy Croft and of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8. Melissa and Jessica planned everything themselves, and they kept it simple. The result was a very touching day that they will remember for years to come!
