I love that no two weddings are exactly alike… and sometimes they’re even total opposites. A huge wedding with hundreds of guests, multiple locations, and 16 person bridal parties or an intimate wedding of 25 that feels more like a beautifully dressed up version of a holiday dinner with your closest family and friends. Both weddings are romantic. Both are meaningful. Both are beautiful reflections of the bride and groom that planned them…
Mary Margaret + Jonathan’s was a beautiful afternoon and evening spent at Childress Vineyards with a small number of family and friends. I loved feeling like a part of the family all day. Every detail was in place and the entire day was so relaxed. They said their vows in front of an incredible cross that Mary Margaret’s dad handcrafted and spent the evening laughing, talking, and dancing in a candlelit barrel cave in the winery. It was seriously like something straight out of a movie :)
I’ve mentioned before that I have my clients fill out a little questionnaire that helps me get to know them better before the wedding. I’ve decided I’m going to start sharing the little blurb of love story that I receive from each couple, so you can get to know them too!
From Mary Margaret : “While I was attending graduate school at East Carolina University, we were introduced by two mutual friends at an ECU football game. Jon says it was love at first sight! We quickly found we had a lot in common – our love of sports, our families, traveling, music, food and adventure. Within the first month after meeting we were inseparable. In our 3 years together we have traveled to many cities, of which some of our favorites are New York for a Coldplay concert, Baltimore for an Orioles baseball game, and Asheville for a beer festival/ghost tour/brewery tours. We gravitate to new locations, great restaurants and breweries wherever we go! Our favorite trip would have to be our engagement trip to Charleston last September. Jon created a second (faux) itinerary for our trip to keep me in the dark on his plans – I was completely caught off guard in a good way! Three years have passed and we now both have budding careers , a house we built together, and a furry dog-child named Luna.”
And now you’re married! Mary Margaret, Jonathan, and families, I hope you love reliving this perfect day. . . Enjoy!
