Kim & Wes

Kim and Wes (and Mya) tied the knot and became a family of three in a beautifully simple, yet elegant outdoor ceremony! Kim’s daughter was involved in every aspect of this wedding as they truly became a family of three!
Kim’s touches were woven throughout the ceremony and reception with her mom and grandmother providing their very special touches as well!  Grandmother provided all the centerpiece floral arrangement as well as the arrangements out and about the venue for the ceremony and reception.  Her mother provided most of the rest of the décor which included special family mementos! And his mother took care of all the details for a very relaxed and perfect rehearsal dinner for family and friends.
We dodged rain yet again for the ceremony and while it sprinkled just a bit, the rain held off for us!  Mya served as the junior bridesmaid, flower girl and her mom’s maid of honor.  The sweet unity sand ceremony included Mya as an integral part of their new family unit.  And it was a special treat for EBS to get to work with an “old” friend (old meaning I have known her for a long time; our kids went to school together for many years) serving as the minister.
The first dances included a first dance with Wes and Mya and pretty sure there weren’t many dry eyes in the room for that sweet and very special dance.  You know the saying “anyone can be a father but it takes a very special man to be a daddy” and Wes is certainly that special man for Mya!

Lauren & Jarus

Lauren and Jarus were married on his family farm and can we say “AMAZING!”  The scenery was spectacular; a 360-degree view of the beautiful mountains of Virginia!
We literally watched it raining along the mountain ridge behind the house but we managed to dodge the storms and have the outdoor ceremony that Lauren wanted.  Such a sweet ceremony surrounded by family and friends in the backyard of the house!
Lauren’s vision was evident in all the special touches she and Jarus provided for their special day.  Jarus designed and made the guest table centerpieces from wood on the property.  Lauren made personalized mason jars for all the guests that served as their table assignments as well as their drinking glasses for the evening.  There was a dessert bar with various yummy selections and food in abundance for the guests to enjoy!
A superb band provided music for the reception and they kept the guests on the dance floor the entire evening! The evening ended with a sparkler exit and saw the bride and groom off to the after-party elsewhere on the property and then their first night as husband and wife in their very own “treehouse” made completely with wood from the property!  Truly special touches from start to finish for Jarus and Lauren’s very special wedding day!
