Wedding Wednesday: The Guelzo Wedding

The Guelzo Wedding | November 8, 2014 | Photography by Stone Blue Productions

Jonah and Hannah first met each other on a blind date set up by their mutual friend. From then on, it was a love story for the books. Jonah proposed to Hannah through an elaborate scavenger hunt that took her to various memorable locations throughout their relationship. Jonah was smart, though, and planned it on her birthday so the proposal was still a surprise since Hannah thought all of this was just for her birthday.

The day went on with different activities and gifts from digging up treasure in the rain to lighting off fireworks. Jonah even led her to the coffee shop where they had their original blind date. The very last clue of the scavenger hunt took Hannah to a drive-in movie theater, which was just as romantic as it sounds. Once there, Jonah projected a film on the screen only to have Hannah realize that he had created it himself as a remake of her favorite movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. In this remake, Jonah put their faces onto the characters and made the plot to tell the love story between the two of them. Once it was finished, he got down on one knee and asked Hannah to marry him. After she enthusiastically agreed, Jonah led her to a different venue where he had planned an engagement party and sang to Hannah “Moon River,” which is a popular song from the movie. They then ended the night by dancing together and thinking about the wonderful future ahead of them.

Sticking with the theme of their engagement, the couple planned their wedding to have an old Hollywood style to it with accents of the roaring 20’s. The colors they used were gold, black, and silver with a bit of Tiffany Blue to add in traces of their perfect engagement. For their favors, Jonah and Hannah put together all of their favorite treats which also included some southern sweets from Hannah’s hometown in Georgia. To their guests they served Salmon, Roasted Chicken, Pippin John Seasoned Pork, and Eggplant Rollatini. The day was beautiful and picturesque, just like the movies!

Wedding Wednesday: The Koonce Wedding

Vance & Crystal Koonce | April 20, 2013 | Photography by Stone Blue Productions

Crystal and Vance first met in a dorm elevator at college. While Crystal didn't think much of it at the time, they later bumped into each other again at a party and sparks flew. When Crystal came home from work one late January evening, she found a picture frame on every third step of her staircase. Each frame contained a different photo of Crystal and Vance in chronological order from when they first met to a recent shot. When she reached the top of her winding stairs, she found Vance on one knee with the engagement ring in hand. All the while, one of her closest friends caught the entire thing on the phone as Crystal had forgotten to hang up with her when she walked in to find such a surprise! Crystal's modern "chic-bling" theme contained beautiful crystallized embellishments, from her shoes to the cake. Their wedding had a few unique touches, such as the seating for the ceremony where their loved ones surrounded them during their vows; family style reception tables; and an all-black wedding cake and programs. They used their engagement photo album as their guest book and the Koonce couple sat on a couch instead of the typical sweetheart table used at receptions. Despite the headache that comes with any wedding planning, when Crystal heard Vance's impromptu speech, she knew it was all worth it. The newlyweds took their honeymoon to Cairns, Australia and Savusavu, Fiji.
