Google+ Real North Carolina Wedding: Mary Katherine + David, Part I - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

First, how awesome is that last shot of MK and David?  I’m loving their totally classic birdseed toss getaway.  Second, how summery and fresh do the ‘maids look in their Modcloth frocks?  (“Frocks” really seems the only appropriate word here, doesn’t it?)  The casual ceremony was held at A Place for the Heart, with hand-tied bouquets gathered from the farmer’s market and boutonnieres handmade by the bride!  Check back later for more from this couple’s reception, including a mouth-watering cake buffet.  Big thanks to Alexa Stutts for sending this wedding our way!

How did the two of you meet?  Tell us your story. It all started at “A Place For The Heart” Journaling Retreat in November of 2008. We were introduced, avoided each other out of bashfulness and had our first conversation about crisis pregnancies and God’s compassion for people!  The retreat ended, and there was no contact info exchanged.  Over the next three weeks, though, we ended up with the same group of people in the same places (bowling, TWICE!) and continued getting to know one another.  We loved talking to each other and learning about the other’s friends, family, dreams and favorites movies.  We have seen the “good, the bad, and the ugly,” but always have come out with hope, perseverance, and more love.
Describe the proposal.
David took me to Friendship field off the Blue Ridge, and we spent a nice (and very, very cold) time frolicking in the field.  Meanwhile, back at Thunder Hill, various very good friends of David’s were preparing for our arrival. As the sun set and the temperature dropped, David started stalling and I got more and more antsy (and cold).  Finally, he got the text he was waiting for and nonchalantly suggested we walk back to his car. As we rounded the bend to Thunder Hill, David asked that question and I gave my answer: yes! From there, we went to an amazingly special after-party where we were blessed by our incredibly special friends.
Three adjectives that describe the day are:
Peaceful, moving and authentic.
Our favorite detail of the wedding was:
How we felt so full and so alive.  It was truly an atmosphere of love.
