Wedding Wednesday: The McAfee Wedding

The McAfee Wedding | November 5, 2016 | Photography by: Sweeney & Sons Photography

Kristen Chapman met Tim McAfee after her brothers encouraged her to go out with their old co-worker from the golf industry. The couple's first month together was all about early morning runs, attending church and going out to dinner. It comes as no surprise then that Tim decided to propose on a trip to Virginia Beach for a half-marathon. Traffic set it back a couple hours -Tim wanted to propose as the sun set on the beach- but he was still able to ask at the hotel before they went out to dinner. The couple spent the whole weekend celebrating.

Kristen and Tim say that their favorite part of the wedding was the washing of the feet ceremony that they performed with their son, Andrew. It is a symbol of their service to each other as a family and represents their love and support of one another. Two of the most unique features of the wedding were the sunny November day that felt more like springtime and the inclusion of Kristen's father, who blessed the wedding by reading a poem and saying a prayer for the future of the couple.

Wedding Wednesday: The Coffey Wedding

The Coffey Wedding | April 30, 2016 | Photography by: Kimberly Izatt Photography

Laura Pruner's and Eric Coffey's first date was a long time in the making. They first met online, exchanging emails and phone calls, before finally meeting for their first date. Eric proposed on a weekend trip to Charleston, South Carolina, during an evening walk on the first night of their trip.

Their mutual faith was a large part of what made their wedding special. Laura says her favorite part of the ceremony was sharing communion with Eric, moments before they finally became man and wife. This is was when the tears finally started to fall, and was a very special moment for the two of them. The couple wants their mutual Christian faith at the center of their marriage, so it was only right for it to be the center of their ceremony as well.

A fun-filled reception followed the ceremony, where the bride and groom shared their first dance to the tune of "Love Of My Life," and the guests got to enjoy a four tiered butter cake with butter cream frosting. It was a simple, elegant, cream colored cake, standing proud on a silver cake stand, which accented Laura's gown's silver beading and her silver sparkly shoes.

With a last name like Coffey, it would have been a shame to miss out on a pun inspired wedding favor. Each guest received a burlap bag of coffee with a label that read, "Enjoy this coffee from the Coffey's." The day was centered on elegance, shared faith, and a good pun, making for memories that will last a lifetime.

Wedding Wednesday: The Smith Wedding

The Smith Wedding | August 22, 2015 | Photography by: Pat Cori Photography

Jana and Cecil met while living in Radford, Va. She had just finished school, and he was working at Norfolk Southern in Roanoke. Jana says they were both “stubborn with each other for dating, but once it happened… we both knew it was definitely meant forever.”

The night Cecil proposed, he was running late. Jana had just gotten off work when he let her know he’d be late, but he wanted to go to dinner. Jana made it home and got ready, and then she waited. Two glasses of wine later, she was still waiting. When he finally came in, he got down one knee and asked her to go to dinner with him as his fiancé. Jana said “YES” of course, and then he asked her to marry him. At dinner, she found out why he was late: he’d been with her father in Christiansburg asking for his permission.

Jana’s favorite part of the wedding was when they were saying vows. Cecil went first, and his voice cracked with emotion. And then the bridal party all started crying too. Jana wiped the tears from Cecil’s face, and the pastor asked for the rings. The next moment felt like it was straight from a movie: his dad dropped the rings. Thankfully, things didn’t turn into a disaster; on the contrary, Jana feels like it made a perfect moment even more perfect.

Another one of Jana’s favorite elements from the day was the live band. She and Cecil had decided they wanted a live band before he even proposed, and it was everything they ever wanted. Their guests still give them comments about it!

The theme of their wedding was classic and simple, with ivory/rustic pink and gold/silver as their colors. Their centerpieces were antique silver trays and three mercury glass candle holders with piles of pink roses at the base.

There were two wedding favors in particular that Jana really loved. The first was a keychain that spelled LOVE and doubled as a bottle opener. There was a tag attached that said “A brew for one, a brew for two, let the ‘L’ove open for you! Enjoy!” courtesy of her mother. The second favor was a black and gold koozie that said “Best Day Ever.”

One of the reasons Jana and Cecil’s wedding was so special was because Jana and her mom planned everything themselves. Jana works as a wedding planner, so after four years of planning other people’s big days it was nice to plan her own. She called her mom with any plan or thought she had, and together they were able to bring everything together exactly how they wanted it with the help of some friends and family.
