Wedding Wednesday: The Piedmont Wedding

 Tim & Kimberly Piedmont | June 21, 2014 | Photography by Marlee Kauffman

 Even though they went to elementary, middle, and high school together, it wasn't until they were out one night with mutual friends that Tim and Kimberly finally met. One night, Kimberly was playfully asking Tim if he wanted to be with her until she was 35, 45, 55, etc. She set him up for the perfect moment, because it was then that Tim looked at her and said "how about forever?". The same friend who played matchmaker for Tim and Kimberly also acted as officiant for their wedding. She personalized the ceremony and made it unique to the couple since she had the privilege of seeing the relationship grow from that first night. The summer magic themed wedding provided just that as it was held on summer solstice, and a summer storm lifted right before the ceremony. Kimberly and her mother enjoyed time before the wedding by watching guests arrive, and drinks were also served beforehand to create a relaxed atmosphere before the ceremony began. Kimberly decided to let the beautiful venue speak for itself by keeping flowers and decorations minimal. Baby's breath, antique books, tea cups, and candles made for romantic, simple centerpieces. The century old trees in front of the house served as the setting for the ceremony, and the reception was held behind the house. Guests showered the happy couple in glitter as they were announced as husband and wife. The day after the wedding, Tim and Kimberly left for a cruise to the Bahamas and stayed in Charleston, South Carolina once they returned to celebrate their honeymoon.
