Wedding Wednesday: The Kirby Wedding

The Kirby Wedding | December 23, 2015 | Photography by: Tara Lilly Photography & Design

Aaron and Tyler originally met at Fork & Cork, but they didn’t date until a friend set them up a year later. These same friends were the first ones the two told after Tyler proposed. His proposal was small and intimate, set up on a Monday evening before his birthday. They were at a lodge, sharing wine and cheese on the balcony, when he asked Aaron to marry him for his birthday.

Aaron’s favorite memory from the big day was on the dance floor. The DJ had been playing a number of fast songs, but Tyler asked him to play a slow song—Their slow song, to be exact. When the song came on, both of them were surprised to find many of their friends joining them on the dance floor and singing along.

Music was a big aspect of this wedding. Most of the songs were compiled by the guests; their invitations had included “I will dance if I hear _____” as part of the RSVP, and the responses gave the reception a wide variety of music. They started the night with “What You Do to Me” by The Embers, a song that included the two of them taking Shag lessons weeks before the wedding.

Aaron and Tyler were the first to request an outdoor wedding at their venue, which gave them some interesting logistical challenges to overcome. Restrooms, lighting, and food prep all needed to be figured out, and then on top of everything else it rained on their big day. A tent was added at the last minute with heaters to keep guests warm.

The rainy day just made the orange pops of color even brighter though. The color came from a golf glove the groom found, and the groomsmen even used the gloves as pocket squares. From there they added tropical socks and orange bouquets for the girls.

What truly made the day special for them was the inclusion of their families. This was a second wedding for both of them, and they wanted to focus on the fact that they were merging their families. Aaron’s sons walked her down the aisle and gave her away, and Tyler addressed them personally during the ceremony, and they all exited together.

Wedding Wednesday: The Frye Wedding

The Frye Wedding | November 28, 2015 | Photography by: Pat Cori Photography

Jennifer and Jared met when one of Jennifer’s colleagues set them up on a blind date. Jennifer almost didn’t go, but she says now it was one of the best decisions she’s ever made.

Jared’s proposal lasted twelve hours. It started at seven in the morning with a scavenger hunt. Red balloons scattered throughout the city marked important moments in their relationship, and each spot had an envelope with scrapbook pages telling their love story from Jared’s perspective. At the end of the day, he was waiting at the last stop with the most beautiful ring Jennifer had ever seen.

Jennifer’s favorite memory of the wedding day was when she first saw Jared. They had decided against doing a first look, wanting to have that special moment when they saw each other and realized this was really happening. Jennifer wasn’t disappointed—when she got to the start of the aisle, Jared already had tears in his eyes.

Some of the most important aspects of the wedding to Jennifer were the flowers and the cake, because her groom’s family designed them. Jared’s father designed the wreath and sideboard at the ceremony, helping enhance the fairytale theme they were going for. Jared’s sister designed the cake, with only a few specifics from the bride and groom to get her going. For Jennifer and Jared, all this made the day even more special because it was all a surprise for them too.

Their venue was the perfect place for their fairytale theme. The barn on its own felt magical, but coupled with the flowers and all the personal touches it looked even better than they’d hoped. Sconces framed the doors, and the flowers from Jared’s father were perfect.

The music kept everyone happy all night, and the DJ even joined them on the dance floor at one point. Their photographer captured every moment, and the pictures they have now are beautiful reminders 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.
