Erin & Tanner Johnston
May 8th, 2021
Venue and planner: Protea Weddings and Events
Photographer: Janira Photography
Florist: The Graceful Gardener

Her favorite memory: During wedding planning, Tanner’s biggest ask was to not see me until the ceremony. My husband is a Marine veteran and currently a police officer. It was the most endearing moment to see his tough exterior shattered by the sight of me as he took his first look at me walking down the aisle. It was touching to be able to share this moment, surrounded by our family and friends. They were able to see our raw emotion and reaction to seeing each other for the first time. It is an old tradition that made our ceremony special and sentimental.

 

 

Vanessa & Jared Shealy
February 6th, 2021
Venue: Pine Haven Ranch
Photographer: Michelle Klopfenstein
Wedding Planner: Making It Matthews
Florist: The Graceful Gardener

Her favorite memory: We were under tornado watch, but the “Big Guy” was looking out and the rain held off until after the most lighthearted, funny, yet emotional ceremony. From the vows we wrote, the flower dude, to all of the animals, decor and karaoke at the reception, our wedding was completely “us” and the most magical and amazing wedding I have ever been to. I got to marry my best friend with all of our loved ones there.
