Laura and Edward were married at Flower Works followed by a reception at Ore Dock Brewing Company in Marquette, Mich. this past winter. “During the winter in Marquette, Michigan, there is usually a lot of snow,” Laura said. “”With that comes two things, dark grey skies and bright white snow. The contrast of the white snow against the dark grey sky looked so elegant to me that it jump started my winter wedding plans.” The bride wore a beaded lace sweetheart neckline wedding gown from Demetrios’ Ultra Sophisticates collection, accessorized with a white flower hairpiece and a classic veil, which was clipped to her updo. The groom wore a classic tuxedo adorned with a black bow tie and boutonniere. The bridesmaids wore pink dresses with white cardigans and held pink peony bouquets. The groomsmen wore gray suits with skinny black ties. Following the ceremony, guests sat at round tables with candles and wooden slab centerpieces, tying in the rustic theme present throughout. “I grew up in a farming town in northern Indiana,” she said. “I wanted to incorporate some of that rustic charm I had come to love growing up by the farms. I tried to bring this rustic charm in with a sort of unintentional elegance that I think we often see with the frost, snow and ice of winter.” The bride and groom cut the pie, instead of the cake, and enjoyed dancing the night away. Their guests sent them off with sparklers while they went home with a warm cup of hot cocoa! See the full board here.

Emily + Ben: A Vintage Tennessee Wedding by Gideon Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

From fond farewells to an emotional first look, Emily and Ben’s sweet Southern wedding is filled with special moments. Their vintage-inspired affair took place on a cool October day on the grounds of the Heartwood Hall estate just outside of Memphis, Tennessee, and we love how they blended traditional rustic touches with a modern hipster aesthetic. Special thanks to Gideon Photography for sharing photos from the day with us! You can view even more details in the full gallery.

Emily and Ben originally met at a conference in Monterey, California. She ended up moving from Tennessee to California to intern at the church that hosted the conference, and Ben happened to be a youth pastor at the very same church. He waited a full year for her to complete her internship before asking her on their first date with an elaborate scavenger hunt. The duo exchanged vows back in Tennessee during the Fall of Emily’s twenty-first year, which had always been a dream for the bride.
