Erin and Kent

A windy, cold, bright and sunny day in April was the backdrop to Erin and Kent’s wedding at St. Andrew’s in Roanoke with the reception following at the Taubman Museum of Art.

Erin and Kent are a perfect match and share many common interests such as their love of “outdoorsy” activities and their dog, Teddy.   They incorporated many personal touches into their reception such as the ribbon wands that they made (and yes, Kent helped or so said the Best Man) that were used during their exit from the TMA and the hand-made doggy treats that served as favors for the guests.  These were a special something for the guests from Teddy.   And their cake topper was hand-made by Erin as well.

As a special treat from her godfather, they traveled in style in a restored, mint condition, antique car with 2 drivers who transported them out and out between venues and again as they exited the TMA at the end of the evening. 

We wish them all the best as they start their married life together!

Thanks to all the vendors who pulled together for their perfect day!

Lindsey and Will

Lindsey and Will's "do-it-yourself" bohemian chic country rustic wedding was a hit with friends and family!
I always ask each of my couples what they love about the person they are about to marry and I get so many amazing responses. Lindsey and Will have a great love for all things outdoors and a great respect and love for each other that was evidenced in every aspect of their special wedding day.
Lindsey and Will have hiked many mountains in their time together so they took their love of all things outdoors and incorporated that into their bohemian chic country rustic-themed wedding at Braeloch!
For the ceremony, they combined soil from their places of residence into a pot that housed a special tree purchased for their new home which will serve as a reminder of their wedding day. During this part of the ceremony, the aunts and mother of the bride sang a song that was very special to her.
They truly wanted a hands-on, do-it-yourself wedding and accomplished this through the use of many items throughout their ceremony and reception. The guest tables featured hand-made wooden circles holding vintage bottles with dried hydrangea from their gardens last spring and the tables were names of mountains they have hiked. A photo book was available for guests to view with all their RSVPs which included hand-drawn pictures from their guests and everyone signed a tree print for them to hang in their home. A live band provided great dance tunes until their exit at midnight and kids enjoyed bags of activities throughout the evening.
The wind was a bit of a challenge for the outdoor ceremony but it was a beautiful day all the way around for Lindsey & Will and all their guests and Events by Sherri was honored to be a part of it.

Thanks to all the vendors who worked together to make this a great day!
