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 Marshall Wedding

Samson & Ashley Marshall | October 26, 2013 | Photography by Laura's Focus Photography

Ashley swears she and Samson should be in a Match.com commercial as one of their success stories! After a movie for their first date, they opted for a dinner date, where Ashley became "more and more smitten." For their anniversary celebration, Samson insisted they have dinner at Lucky, their favorite restaurant in downtown Roanoke. As they were sipping drinks, Samson said he had a present for Ashley, which turned out to be THE ring and a proposal. After she said, "of course!" the couple had their photo taken in front of the restaurant. Ashley definitely got "lucky" at Lucky! Their wedding was unique because of the blending of their heritage and personalities. A vintage style dress (along with gorgeous faux fur shawl) fit perfectly, while Samson wore his best Iron Man socks, three piece suit and hand-tied bowtie. Ashley knew it was important for the wedding to represent each of them as well as together as a couple. Ashley also wanted as locally-sourced as possible, showcasing the best of Roanoke to her DC in-laws. Black and royal blue with touches of gold and ivory complemented the country club's existing decor. Centerpieces were created using wooden cigar boxes, while a variety of cupcakes were a sweet touch. Firearm brass was used for boutonniere holders, while the bride carefully chose non-traditional blooms for her flower bouquets. The cake toppers were two-fold, as they had a Southern touch for Ashley and a nerdy touch for Samson. The newlyweds celebrated with a honeymoon to Puerto Rico with a Caribbean cruise so they visit six islands to celebrate.
