Wedding Wednesday: The Boothe Wedding

The Boothe Wedding | June 25, 2016 | Photography by: Ashley Lester Photography

Madison and Tyler attended the same high school, though they didn't become close friends until they were both working at the Salem Red Sox. After a couple years of friendship, the two became a couple. The day of Tyler's proposal, he picked Madison up for dinner and insisted on stopping by the Salem Red Sox to pick up their season tickets. Upon arriving, a friend told them all season ticket holders had pictures taken on the home plate for the program. They walked out onto the field while Tyler brought up how "this is where it all started" for them, when their song began to play, along with pictures displayed across the scoreboard. When Madison turned to question Tyler, she found him on one knee, with the screen reading "Will You Marry Me?" Madison of course said yes, thrilled at both the surprise and the pictures that later appeared from a friend who'd hidden to take photos during the proposal.

Their wedding was a combination of rustic and elegance, capturing their personalities. Madison says thanks to their vendors, their wedding was absolutely perfect. With numerous memories to choose from, Madison says opening her wedding gift from Tyler will always be high on the list. Tyler gave her a new bible with her new monogram, along with a bookmarked page for 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ("Love is patient..."). Reading that verse before walking down the aisle was emotional and happy, and she loves opening her bible to that special verse months and years later. Summer salad, dips, and other delicious items were a treat for guests, while her bridesmaids wore a gorgeous shade of aquamarine. Bouquets and centerpieces had soft pink tones that added to the day's romance, while a glowstick exit created fun for everyone celebrating with Madison and Tyler.

Wedding Wednesday: The Merritt Wedding

The Merritt Wedding | April 25, 2015 | Photography by: Lori Hedrick Photography

Andrea and Owen met while working the same case for a client. It took a while for any romantic feelings to develop, but once they did Andrea started dropping hints until Owen asked her out (though he’ll tell you differently.)

Owen’s proposal was quite theatrical…literally. He likes to act with Roanoke’s community theaters, and it was at the end of a performance when he came to the front of the stage and got down on one knee. Andrea was in the front row, and he proposed right there with a live theater audience.

Andrea’s favorite moment from their wedding was their vows. They each wrote personal vows; Owen spoke about her personal passions and promised to support her, and Andrea talked about how good of a person he really was.

Their wedding took place at Andrea’s Alma Mater, Hollins University, with pink and green as their colors. The pastor was Owen’s father, an ordained Presbyterian minister.

Instead of favors for the guests, Andrea and Owen decided to make a donation to the RVSPCA in their guests’ names. And Andrea even donated her gown to Brides Across America after the wedding. Giving back to the community is very important to both of them. They used as many local vendors as they could. It was just their way of saying thanks to the local community.

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.
