Wedding Wednesday: The Wirt Wedding

The Wirt Wedding | October 16, 2016 | Photography by: Kevin Hurley Photography

Maygon Sowder met Barry Wirt through a mutual friend, quickly establishing a great friendship. When Barry invited her to a black tie event as his date, the rest was history. For his proposal, Barry waited until after moving into their home, and gave Maygon three boxes. One had wine glasses, the second contained her favorite bottle of wine and the third had a very special ring with a note. Barry later revealed he'd captured the entire moment on hidden camera, waiting to share the video at the rehearsal dinner the night before their wedding. 

Maygon and Barry both say that their favorite moment of the wedding was the First Look. The weather was perfect, creating the perfect backdrop that was also Barry's dream ceremony location.  The couple says that the moment was special because they got to spend time together before celebrating their months of hard work that made their big day so perfect. Barry handmade the cupcake stands, which were decorated with the navy and coral wedding colors and their personalized wedding hashtags, #wirtthewait and #shesgettingbarryed.

Wedding Wednesday: The Dalton Wedding

The Dalton Wedding | September 10, 2016 | Photography by: Sam Stroud Photography

Ashlee Washburn and Matthew Dalton met while they were in high school. Matthew proposed on the Crim Dell Bridge on the William & Mary College campus because of the local legend that says that if two lovers meet and kiss in the middle of the bridge, they'll be together forever. This is also why they chose to have their First Look on the bridge outside the wedding venue.

The couple had a traditionally romantic ceremony with a more modern reception, something that was a total hit with the guests. Many of Ashlee's friends still tell her that it was the most fun they have ever had a wedding reception! Because the couple accidentally chose their wedding date to be the same as the Battle at Bristol football game, Virginia Tech alum Matthew chose "Enter Sandman" as the couple's reception introduction. Guests were able to take a break from all the fun and signature old-fashioned cocktails to peek into the restaurant next door for game updates!

Wedding Wednesday: The Maynor Wedding

The Maynor Wedding | December 23, 2014 | Photography by: Marie Deel Photography

Mary and Matthew crossed paths in high school, but they didn’t really meet until working together at a restaurant years later.

Matthew timed his proposal for the night before he left for the U.S. Air Force. Both of them dressed up and went out for dinner in Roanoke, but when they got back Mary noticed the lights on in their apartment. All the way up the stairs were printed lyrics of their song, and rose petals and candles waited for them at the door. Inside were more petals and candles, and a sign in the window read, “As long as I have you, I will always be home. Will you marry me?” Matthew then got out his guitar and played their song. Later, he admitted he’d wanted to do more but was out of time, but for Mary the proposal was perfect as it was.

They wrote their own vows for each other for their wedding, and Mary says that was her favorite moment of the day. “The world stood still and we poured our hearts and souls out to each other for each other and our loved ones to hear.”

Since their wedding was on the twenty-third of December, they wanted their color scheme to mix with a Christmas theme as well as Matthew’s dress uniform. They decided on navy blue, gold, and silver.

There were a few things that really made their wedding unique. For one, they were married on a Tuesday, and for another they served breakfast for dinner. They also had cheesecake instead of a traditional wedding cake. In lieu of place cards, they wrote everyone’s name and number down on Ferrero Rocier chocolate. Mary’s bouquet was comprised of white feathers and pine cones and silver and clear beading.

The toast was given by her older sister, and it was quite the spectacle. Her sister remade “Ice, Ice Baby” and had the whole bridal party in on it. And for their send off at the end of the night, they had people throw blue paper airplanes instead of rice.
