Wedding Wednesday: The Morgan Wedding

Andrew & Leslie Morgan | October 26, 2013 | Photography by Lori Hedrick Photography

After Andrew and Leslie met at work, they discovered their mutual enthusiasm for aerospace, astronomy, and engineering. On a cold December night, Andrew took Leslie up to "their hilltop" in Blacksburg where they often go to watch meteor showers. In between two ISS passovers (a rarity to see), Andrew popped the question. Leslie describes the style of her wedding as traditional and slightly vintage. Their ceremony was held outside under the tall trees in the Maridor's garden. The chilly but lovely evening reminded them of their engagement night. Andrew's childhood pastor performed the ceremony, which meant a lot to the family. Colors of dark purple, lime green, and orange were complemented by vibrant centerpieces and decorations. Along with a "spunky little flower girl," the bridal party was full of friends and family, who helped create a memorable moment when they joined the newlyweds on the dance floor for an anniversary dance. Guests received gourmet cookies prepared by the groom (moral support and samples provided by the bride) and they're still talking about the incredible food. The new Morgan couple closed on their first home just five days after the wedding, so they planned to take a European riverboat cruise in the spring, including an extended stop in Paris, France.

Josh McKay and Johana Florez were set up on a blind day by Johana's brother. They were both shy, but they eventually were able to realize they were actually soulmates. Josh proposed to Johana when she was just about to visit her home country, Columbia. The couple held a wedding celebrating two heritages, Colombian and Scottish, on a beautiful fall day incorporating culture into their day in various ways.

Wedding Wednesday: The Jarvis Wedding

JoAnna and Jason Jarvis | October 27, 2013| Photography by Sam Stroud Photography

JoAnna Sturgis and Jason Jarvis both shared an interest in photography while they worked for Canon in Chesapeake and they would later realize they also shared an interest in each other. Jason proposed JoAnna on their weekend getaway to The Greenbrier resort in West Virgina. In the middle of the couple's carriage ride Jason got on one knee as he popped the question and took JoAnna by complete surprise. The couple held a wedding that captured their personalities and tastes with a color scheme of gold and yellow, mint, grey, black and ivory. Decor for the day included large pom pom balls made out of moss as paper flowers hung from the trees that lined the brick aisle to the gazebo.
