Wedding Wednesday: The Ivey Wedding

The Ivey Wedding | June 6, 2015 | Photography by: Kim Brantley Photography

It took awhile for love to blossom between Lauren and Trey. They met when her father hosted a concert at their church, and Trey was the piano player. They became close friends, but it took six years before they started dating.

Trey’s proposal was a video of everyone important in Lauren’s life telling her to “Say Yes!” After the video, two of Lauren’s best friends came in and surprised her. Trey had flown them in to help them celebrate.

Lauren’s favorite moment was when she walked down the aisle. Everywhere she looked, she saw the faces of people she loved the most, and it was amazing to be surrounded by everyone she cared about.

Lauren’s father officiated the wedding, and award-winning singers TaRanda Greene, Wayne Haun, & Jim Brady sung during the ceremony. They were then treated to a fantastic dinner by the Hotel Roanoke staff. A friend of the family designed the gorgeous centerpieces on the table and the décor for the wedding. Most of the reception happened outside in the courtyard, and Lauren and Trey were just happy the rain held off.

They had a large bridal party, consisting of ten bridesmaids, ten groomsmen, three flower girls, and a ring bearer. But being able to include so many close friends and family made the day perfect.
