Wedding Wednesday: The Bailey Wedding

The Bailey Wedding | April 29, 2017 | Photography by: Kemper Mills Fant Photography

Courtney Rocovich and Shelby Bailey met at a mutual friends house and instantly connected. They stayed up most of the night talking and when Courtney left the next day, Shelby made sure to get her number. Later they talked on the phone for six hours straight and the rest is history. During a late night walk along the beach in Playa del Carmen, Shelby nervously got down on one knee and proclaimed that he never wanted to live one day of his life without her. Courtney's engagement ring is made of sequoia wood, which is symbolic of their first trip as a couple to the Sequoia National Forest.

The couple's favorite wedding day memory was when Courtney, Shelby and Harper, their flower girl and Courtney's daughter, gathered together to a tree watering ritual. They watered a magnolia tree that would later be planted in their yard. Harper was so excited and happy for the family that she cried, making the moment just a bit more special for everyone. Some of the unique features of the wedding include a nondenominational ceremony and personalized wedding vows that embodied both their traditional values and the individual characteristics that make them a unique couple. The couple decided not to ask for gifts and instead asked guests to bring stuffed animals for the pediatric patients at Carilion Clinic where Courtney works.

Wedding Wednesday: The Boyd Wedding

The Boyd Wedding | October 8, 2016 | Photography by: Anna Bowser Photography

Marlea and Jarred first met in high school; she says he was mean to her, but Jarred insists it was only because he liked her so much. After starting college, they eventually began dating. Six years later, Marlea went out to Colorado to see Jarred after he finished his clinicals. They traveled across several states together, eventually ending up in Kentucky for July 4th. Marlea and Jarred watched the best fireworks show she'd ever seen, and it was there Jarred asked her to be his wife.

Because their wedding day would be filled with a large, diverse group of family and friends, Marlea and Jarred knew it was important for everyone to have fun and feel included. Their theme of love and family capitalized on their wishes. Despite rain moving their ceremony indoors, they took it all in stride, placing their gorgeous arbor on the venue's stage. Guests stayed busy with good food, fun music and a photo booth, in addition to a dessert bar made up of Marlea's grandmother's special treats like mini cheesecakes, baklava and lemon bars, to name a few. The bridal party did a lip sync battle as well, surprising guests in the best way. Marlea says her favorite wedding day memory is during the reception, when a dance line formed to Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance with Somebody." The conga line formed throughout the venue, filled with family and friends. She says it was an amazing moment that connected everyone to feel important and loved, and the dance line did just that. The couple ended the night with a spectacular downtown exit.

Wedding Wednesday: The Tibbs Wedding

Cory & Rebecca Tibbs | November 10, 2013 | Photography by William Mahone Photography

Rebecca thanks her older sister for meeting her future husband, since Cory told her he was drawn to her because of her shoes, which she'd borrowed! In early November, Rebecca woke up to find a note and rose from Cory requesting a dinner date. After dinner, he suggested they go back home to watch a movie; upon returning, he blindfolded Rebecca and guided them into the house, where she heard their song playing. Once the blindfold came off, Rebecca, who has an "unusual obsession" with all things Christmas, found a winter wonderland in her living room, complete with snow, multiple trees, lights, wrapped photos, and more. In the middle of the snow pile, Cory got down on one knee and proposed. Rebecca says her favorite memory of their wedding day was the last song - as she and Cory danced to the Lumineers' "Ho, Hey" the guests formed a circle around them and sang as the newlyweds danced. The evening ceremony allowed everything to be lit up by lanterns and candles, giving it a romantic feel. This fit well with the theme of romantic and rustic, with a navy, grey, and pink color palette. Guests were able to sit on couches in front of a fire and enjoy the reception. Centerpieces of lanterns with three-tiered pink candles or a shallow dish with flowers sat on all the tables, while handmade paper pom-poms and floral balls hung from the ceiling. Guests received handmade chocolate truffles. The couple took their honeymoon to Hamanasi Resort in Belize, where they visited Mayan ruins, snorkled, hiked, and satisfied their desire to have both adventure and relaxation.
