Wedding Wednesday: The Mixon Wedding

The Mixon Wedding | July 30, 2016 | Photography by: Amber Perdue

Ashley and Clark first met on a dating app. The proposal happened when Clark wanted to get Ashley a gun for Christmas as a joke. They ended up buying it, and when Ashley opened the box thinking it was part of the joke, she found a ring in its place. Clark got on one knee and proposed in front of his whole family.

Ashley took several small moments to really remember the ceremony, and she says that this was her favorite part. Seeing her soon-to-be husband down the aisle with tears in his eyes, and then dancing with friends and family really make the day special. She also shared the day with her sister by helping to set up a surprise engagement during the bouquet toss. Ashley did a pretend toss and handed the bouquet to her sister, only to turn her around to her boyfriend on one knee. "It made our day even more special," Ashley says. "The day was filled with love and future family!"

Wedding Wednesday: The Lawrence Wedding

Jeanne and Allen Lawrence | September 22, 2013 | Photography by Michael Sink

Jeanne Boester and Allen Lawrence met while working for the Salem Red Sox, which sparked the desire to incorporate their love of baseball into the big day. When the whole family went on a cruise together, Allen surprised Jeanne with a very important question and proposing. The couple held a contemporary themed wedding with a color scheme of red, black, and gold. From the invitations designed into baseball cards to Jeanne's garter with the Red Sox logo embroidery, friends and family were able to see the couple's love story with the baseball touches. They even had their rehearsal dinner inside the stadium where they got on the field to start the celebration!
