Wedding Wednesday: The Vick Wedding

The Vick Wedding | June 13, 2015 | Photography by Pat Cori Photography

The story of how Duncan and Kim first met is a heated topic for the couple because they both have different ideas of how it happened. While Duncan says they met at a bar while out with mutual friends in Roanoke, Kim remembers differently. Kim remembers meeting during a particularly magical christmas party thrown by their mutual friends. Duncan came to the party and the two casually chatted as the evening went on. Later that night, the two went out and walked around town and returned to the party to watch a movie with their friends. Kim remembers duncan holding her hand throughout the entire movie and says that he even tucked her into bed after!

Whichever story is right, though, doesn’t matter because the ending was a first date that led to the love of their lives. One morning, Duncan told Kim that he wanted to take her and her dog on a hike. This was a trail that the had hiked together many times, but it was different on that morning. Before the two got to the overlook at the end of the trail, Duncan got down on one knee and asked Kim to spend the rest of her life with him. She, of course, excitedly accepted.

The wedding was decorated to look southern and chic, with navy and pink colors that looked beautiful against the outdoor terrace in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The guests of the wedding could tell how hard Kim had worked on planning the wedding just by the sashes on the chairs or the decor at the reception. Kim put her own style into the event and made sure everything was perfect from the flower-filled lanterns on the asiles to the gold picture frames displayed throughout the night. There were monograms of Kim and Duncan on many of the decorations, including the wedding favors which were coozies.

Kim’s favorite memory of the wedding, though, was the moment she started her walk and saw Duncan’s face. He couldn’t stop smiling at her from the other end of the aisle and the moment was so special and intimate that the couple will never forget it.
