Wedding Wednesday: The Carver Wedding

The Carver Wedding | December 2, 2017 | Photography by: Stephanie Parker Photography

After Lucas Carver met Kimberly Hughes while playing football on the Virginia Tech drillfield with friends, Kimberly made sure to add Lucas on Facebook. Kimberly's father had a rule for her: she couldn't get engaged until she graduated college with a bachelor's degree. The day after she graduated in December of 2015, Lucas created a driving tour around their favorite spots in Blacksburg and Christiansburg, ending up back on the drillfield, where Lucas got down on one knee and asked Kimberly to be his wife.

The couple's winter wedding was timeless, with its colors being white, navy blue and silver. The ceremony was performed by Lucas' father, a Baptist preacher, and the reception was everything that the couple had hoped for. However, their favorite memory of the day was when Lucas' fraternity, Kappa Kappa Psi, gathered together in a circle around the couple and sang a beautiful hymn, seeming to almost bless the marriage, making Kimberly tear up because of how much it meant to her. Because Virginia Tech played such a pivotal role in Lucas and Kimberly's relationship, and because many of the wedding guests had either gone to Tech or were fans, the Hokie Bird came and took pictures with the guests, allowing for the couple to celebrate their big day with a fun and personal touch.

Wedding Wednesday: The Beamish Wedding

The Beamish Wedding | October 30, 2015 | Photography by Noah Magnifico- Photographer

Lauren’s profile on Match.com included her fear of house centipedes. Richie sent her a message saying he would protect her from them. She laughed at the message and they set up a meeting, and she’s been laughing ever since.

Richie’s proposal didn’t quite manage to catch Lauren by surprise, but it was incredibly sweet nonetheless. They went out to dinner, and he was quiet and nervous the whole time, cluing Lauren in that something was up. Finally, just before dessert, he walked around the table and pulled out a ring. When the waiter realized what had happened, she sent over complimentary champagne and the staff wrote “Congratulations” on their plates.

Lauren’s favorite memory of the day was when she walked down the aisle. With her father next to her and Richie waiting at the other end, she couldn’t have been happier. She purposely walked slower to enjoy the moment.

Before the ceremony, Lauren and Richie had a “First Look,” though they never actually saw each other. They stood back to back and talked, and they even pulled off a kiss with their eyes closed. It eased some of their jitters, and then it was time for the ceremony. They chose to do a non-religious ceremony, customizing the service with their officiant to really make it theirs.

The colors for the day were burgundy, silver, and rose. For party favors, they got frames for people to frame their pictures from the photo booth. Lauren and Richie complied a scrapbook of the pictures from the booth, and they love the final product.

The big picture of the day came from Lane Stadium though. Both of them are die-hard Hokie fans, and they were able to get in and take pictures with the Hokie Stone. They were even lucky enough to have the Hokie Bird make an appearance at their wedding, which totally made their night.

Wedding Wednesday: The Lephew Wedding

Cameron & Melinda Lephew | August 3, 2013 | Photography by Noah Magnifico Photography

Cameron and Melinda met while attending Radford University, their first date coming about due to a bet that Cameron lost (he had to buy her lunch after his team lost in a day-long race!). On the day Cameron proposed, the couple was enjoying a relaxing afternoon after Christmas; they have a longstanding game of holding their arms out as wide as possible while saying "I love you THIS much." As they played their game, Cameron sounded more serious than usual; Melinda looked up to find him holding the important ring box. Cameron had already spoken with Melinda's father for his blessing, wanting to surprise her after Christmas with one more extra special gift. Melinda says her wedding was unique thanks to the little details. As she got ready for the wedding, Cameron's mother came in with a gift from the groom, a new snow globe that Cameron had made, and was extra special because of the significant meaning for the couple. Melinda carried her grandmother's handkerchief in her bouquet and they also used the same knife that Cameron's parents had used to cut their own wedding cake. A black and fuchsia color scheme was chosen, where the bridesmaids wore black dresses and shoes, groomsmen wore black tuxedos with fuschia vests and ties, and the flower girls wore fuchsia dresses. Because the stargazer lily is Melinda's favorite flower, she used it in her bouquets, centerpieces, and the wedding cake. Centerpieces for the tables consisted of a square mirror tile with three white candles floating in glasses, with rows of black rhinstones around the top of the glass holder. Pink, clear, and black gems were scattered around on the tables. Guests were given small mint tins as favors that read "mint to be" on the lid. They also tossed heart-shaped rice for the couple's reception exit. For their honeymoon, the Lephews spent a tropical week at Sandals Negril in Jamaica.
