Wedding Wednesday: The Kunkel Wedding

Dennis & Ania Kunkel | June 22, 2014 | Photography by Noah Magnifico

Dennis and Ania can say they really are the perfect match since they met on match.com in 2013. Ania says she knew from their second day of dating that they would get married, and Dennis made that dream of hers come true. Being a true romantic, Dennis waited for the perfect moment to propose after buying the ring a month earlier. One night, the two were talking in Ania's car after a church event when Dennis leaned toward her and reached under her driver's seat. He had been hiding the ring there all along, and it was finally time to surprise her! He chose the ring very carefully to perfectly embody there relationship. The ring has three stones- one on each side to signify Dennis and his children as well as Ania and hers and a middle stone to signify the combined family. They chose a modern Victorian theme for their wedding which was held in an old, vintage barn. Dennis's favorite moment of the day was watching his beautiful bride walk down the aisle to the song "I Can Only Imagine." It was important to incorporate their families into the wedding as much as possible. The couple involved their children into all aspects of the wedding, such as the lighting of the unity candle which was Ania's favorite moment. Even the food was family themed. Dennis's mother baked the wedding cake, which was the first three-tier wedding cake she'd ever made that looked and tasted good. The guests' favors contained personalized jars of Polish candy since Ania's family is from Poland. Another very unique touch was their wedding date of June 22, because their first date was at a restaurant called 622 North.

Wedding Wednesday: The Hendricks Wedding

 TJ & Laura Hendricks | June 14, 2014 | Photography by Noah Magnifico

 TJ and Laura owe it all to a mutual friend who brought the two together one night in Florida. Laura's friend invited her down for spring break in March of 2012, and though it wasn't her initial plan, something told her she needed to go. When she arrived, she met her friend's roommate TJ. The two spent the whole evening talking, and at the end of the trip TJ drove Laura to the airport and tricked her into giving him her phone number for "safety purposes" of course. The two kept in touch, and a month later TJ flew her out from Texas to see him again. After seven months of a long distance relationship, TJ knew Laura was the one. He proposed to her while she was visiting for Thanksgiving by driving out to the beach in Corpus Christi, Texas. Because Laura spent ten years living in Texas, and TJ finished his part of his flight school training there as well, she knew a rustic themed wedding was a must. She achieved this aesthetic by using wooden trunk pieces in the centerpieces, mason jars and burlap, and the old wooden door used for seating assignments. And of course, the cowboy boots she wore under her dress! The centerpieces helped incorporate romantic elements into the rustic theme as well, consisting of sunflowers, gerbera daisies, and twigs. They were all different heights, and some featured votive candles while others featured tall vases with burlap to create and interesting and unique look. The table numbers were also unique because Laura's mother handmade them by wrapping burlap around boards and gluing on every pearl to create the numbers. It was also important that military elements be present as well since TJ flies for the U.S. Navy. TJ chose the venues because it was important to him as a Virginia Tech alumnus. The camouflage koozie favors were also Virginia Tech colors and featured the helicopter TJ flies. Laura even incorporated the military theme into her garter, which featured the red "Remove Before Flight" tag and a helicopter charm. A final element to honor TJ's active duty was the sword arch in which the couple walked through and had to kiss in order to pass through each set of swords. One of the most important memories of the day was the coming together of friends and family from all over the United States and the world.

Wedding Wednesday: The Moore Wedding

Sam & Sarah Moore | March 30, 2013 | Photography by Noah Magnifico Photography

Sam Moore's daughter Hannah might not have been impressed with her father's flirting skills, but luckily he managed to charm Sarah Wright after complimenting her accent. After returning from vacation, Sam surprised Sarah with a wedding planner binder and proposal. Sarah's favorite memories of her wedding day include bringing their families together (her relatives live in England) and blending their two cultures. The venue and food were all-American, but the entertainment was the "best of the British." Blue and gold bouquets in burlap, Mason jar centerpieces, and burlap runners added to the details of the special day.
