Wedding Wednesday: The Tyson-Williams Wedding

The Tyson-Williams Wedding | October 22, 2016 | Photography by: Sue Campbell & Leanne Creger

Matthew Tyson and Erik Williams had an "extraordinary amount of luck on their side" when they found each other online. One night when Matthew was staying up late studying for a nursing school final, Erik surprised him by coming around the corner wearing a suit and holding a package. After managing to make both of them laugh and cry, Erik proposed with a Cartier engagement ring, exactly what Matthew always wanted.

Matthew says that his favorite part of the wedding was the recitation of the vows because they were taken from a passage in "Jane Eyre," his favorite book. Erik's favorite was the "warming of the rings" where the couple passed their rings around and asked guests to pray or bless them. Some other special aspects of the wedding include the books and paper items doubling as decor and gifts, and the "Harry Potter" themed cake topper and guest book. The Corinthian Ballroom added the charm of a library to the occasion, making the atmosphere even more magical. The couple says that the inclusion of their favorite activity, reading, into the reception and ceremony made the wedding unique.

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 Morrell Wedding

The Morrell Wedding | October 1, 2016 | Photography by: Skyryder Photography

Lindsey and Matt first met while she was waiting tables in Radford. Matt was a regular customer, and they got to know each other during her shifts. After Lindsey completed nursing school, the two were able to spend time together outside of the restaurant and became an official couple. During a trip to Gatlinburg, Matt and Lindsey got on the ski lift; there, Matt realized his love for Lindsey. Years later, Matt took her to that same spot to propose. As it turned out, he'd had her custom antique ring for three years, purchasing it the day she fell in love with it and listening to her wishes of how she'd wear the special piece.

While Matt wanted Hokie colors for a palette, he went for colorful Hokie socks so LIndsey could have her choice of aubergine and gold. The bridesmaids wore long purple gowns, with beautiful bouquets to match. It's hard for Lindsey to pick only one memorable wedding day moment, as she holds all of them dear to her heart, as "everything was perfect!" Along with the fabulous night, the newylweds - bourbon lovers - added a bourbon and cigar bar to their reception, which turned out to be a smashing success for their guests. Lindsey personally picked out all of their decor, which either came from their home, or is now something in their home, incorporating their new life together.
