Wedding Wednesday: The Tibbs Wedding

Cory & Rebecca Tibbs | November 10, 2013 | Photography by William Mahone Photography

Rebecca thanks her older sister for meeting her future husband, since Cory told her he was drawn to her because of her shoes, which she'd borrowed! In early November, Rebecca woke up to find a note and rose from Cory requesting a dinner date. After dinner, he suggested they go back home to watch a movie; upon returning, he blindfolded Rebecca and guided them into the house, where she heard their song playing. Once the blindfold came off, Rebecca, who has an "unusual obsession" with all things Christmas, found a winter wonderland in her living room, complete with snow, multiple trees, lights, wrapped photos, and more. In the middle of the snow pile, Cory got down on one knee and proposed. Rebecca says her favorite memory of their wedding day was the last song - as she and Cory danced to the Lumineers' "Ho, Hey" the guests formed a circle around them and sang as the newlyweds danced. The evening ceremony allowed everything to be lit up by lanterns and candles, giving it a romantic feel. This fit well with the theme of romantic and rustic, with a navy, grey, and pink color palette. Guests were able to sit on couches in front of a fire and enjoy the reception. Centerpieces of lanterns with three-tiered pink candles or a shallow dish with flowers sat on all the tables, while handmade paper pom-poms and floral balls hung from the ceiling. Guests received handmade chocolate truffles. The couple took their honeymoon to Hamanasi Resort in Belize, where they visited Mayan ruins, snorkled, hiked, and satisfied their desire to have both adventure and relaxation.
