Hannah and Kyle’s wedding includes many of my favorite details: shades of soft pink, sparkly gold accents, adorable little ones (boys in gingham and girls in tulle at that!), groomsmen rocking colorful cowboy boots, outdoor pews…the list could go on and on. But, like our dear Lisa, I love reading the couple’s interviews and delving into their love stories. While the above details are gorgeous, I couldn’t help but be taken by the sweet joy that these two have for each other. Since they met through a country dance group, a country song was almost required as their first dance. With the last line being “You could give me a million reasons why you love me. I’d just give you two million reasons right back,” you know there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Big hugs to Tucker Images for sharing this sweet soiree with us!

Lush Couture Floral did a fantastic job on our flowers! Deitra used lots of different shades of pink, blush, and cream. She even added a bit of a coral color to blend in with our bridesmaid dresses. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the end result! The bridesmaid bouquets were to die for and the shotgun shell boutonnieres were a huge hit.

Tell us about finding your wedding dress. Like any girl, I had looked online at styles and designers I liked before I went to try any on. I went to a small boutique near the town I grew up in and tried on about eight dresses, but none of them felt like the one. I kept going back to a dress I had seen online, and I knew that I couldn’t make a decision without trying that one on. The boutique I was at didn’t have it for me to try on, but they were sweet enough to call other stores in the area to find a sample for me to try. Only one store had it, so my mom, sister, and I drove 45 miles to that store. I knew it was the one the moment the sales associate showed it to me.

Our favorite detail of the wedding was: Our favorite detail of the wedding would have to be the ring bearer and flower girl attire. There was something about the rustic feel of the gingham, suspenders, and bow ties paired with the elegant feel of the tulle and sequin dresses. Gosh, those kids were adorable!

These boys – I can’t even deal!

What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? The most memorable moment about our wedding day was definitely the moment that I walked down the aisle and saw Kyle for the first time. I had our ushers hold up old doors at the end of the aisle and I hid behind them until the Bridal March came on. The ushers pulled the doors apart and my dad and I started walking down the aisle. I will forever remember the look on Kyle’s face when the doors opened up. He was crying and smiling at the same time. At one point, he even put his head down to wipe away his tears. It was the most powerful thing to witness.

Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? We actually decided to write our own vows about a week before the wedding because we wanted to incorporate more of what we felt the Lord was telling us about marriage. Kyle promised to do his best to love me the way Jesus loves His bride, the church. I promised to love Kyle the way Jesus sacrificially loves me.
What readings, if any, did you have at your ceremony? Kyle and I chose to wash one another’s feet during our ceremony as a way to serve one another just like Jesus served the disciples. My grandfather, who also officiated, read John 13:1-17, which tells the story of Jesus washing the disciples’ feet.

Kyle and I decided from the very beginning that we wanted to serve pie over cake. We actually got married on “Pi Day” (3.14)–it wasn’t even intentional! We ended up serving both pie and cake at our wedding. We ordered our pies from a family-owned country restaurant called Joe’s. We served chocolate, pecan, key lime, and cherry cream cheese. Yum! We then ordered a small cake to cut from Sugar Bee Sweets. We chose blackberry cream cheese as the filling and then did a ruffle and stucco look for the icing. It was fabulous!

How did y’all meet? Tell us your love story. Kyle and I actually met through a country dance group… totally random, I know! I had been a part of the group for about a year before I moved to the Philippines with my family for four months. During those four months, Kyle began country dancing and he started hanging out with all of my friends in the dance group. I moved back to the U.S. in October 2011 and I met Kyle five days later. We have been inseparable ever since!
Tell us all about the proposal! About a year after Kyle and I started dating, I really felt like God was calling me back to the Philippines to start a home for unwed, pregnant women in crisis situations. It was so hard to leave Kyle, but God totally had a plan for us all along. We had plenty of Skype dates and late night phone calls–that 13-hour time difference was killer! I moved in January 2013, and four months later, the Lord paved the way for Kyle to do his senior internship in the Philippines. He worked during the week, so we spent our weekends exploring a foreign country. The second weekend after Kyle arrived, we decided to take a trip to the beach with my entire family. We had a blast snorkeling, exploring, and just relaxing. On our last night at the beach, we went to go explore the other side of the island and take pictures. Kyle and I were walking down the beach with my family, talking about life, when all of a sudden, he grabbed my hand and turned me toward him. It was at that moment that I knew exactly what was happening. Kyle gave a little speech–which neither of us can remember–and he got down on one knee. All I remember doing was saying, “Yes!” over and over while jumping up and down.
When did y’all get married? March 14, 2014
How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding? 130
Did you decide to do a “first look”? Why or why not? Kyle and I decided not to do a first look. We are fairly traditional and were happy with our decision. Kyle was adamant that we were not going to see each other, nor did he want to know any details about what I was wearing. I wasn’t even allowed to show him dresses that I didn’t like! There was something so special about seeing my groom for the first time waiting for me at the end of the aisle.
What made you choose your ceremony and reception venues? Did they have any special significance to you? Since we met country dancing, getting married in/near a barn was a no brainer. When we pulled up to Classic Oaks Ranch for the first time, we knew it was where we would get married. The entire venue has a rustic, elegant feel, and that was exactly what we were going for.
Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding and why you chose them. We used the song “My Dear” by Bethel Music for the wedding party’s processional. It is definitely not a traditional song for a wedding, but it was so us. We walked back up the aisle to “This Will Be (an Everlasting Love)” by Natalie Cole. Something about that song makes me want to get up and dance! Our first dance was to “Yours and Mine” by Kyle Park. We just had to dance to a country song–it was a must. My favorite part is the end: “You could give me a million reasons why you love me. I’d just give you two million reasons right back. There’s no stopping two hearts like ours. There’s no reason to even try. There’s nothing better than this world of yours and mine.”
Did you have something borrowed, blue, old, and new? If so, do tell! This is one part of wedding planning that I definitely got stumped on. My something old was my great grandmother’s pink lace hankie that we wrapped around my bouquet. I borrowed my grandmother’s locket and placed it around my bouquet as well. Inside the locket, I placed a picture of me and my grandmother, who passed away six years ago. I had a small navy bow on my garter that I used as my something blue. Kyle’s wedding gift to me was a beautiful pearl bracelet that I used as my something new. Phew! I got all four!
What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? Oh goodness, where to begin?! I am a sucker for all things Southern. Heck, I even walked down the aisle in my boots. Some of the Southern details we included were the gingham shirts, suspenders, and bow ties. We served BBQ and iced tea. Oh, and the pies! That’s about as Southern as you can get.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? My family still lives in the Philippines, so it was really hard to plan a wedding and not have my mom physically here to help me. I sent her tons of emails and pictures to get her input, but it just wasn’t the same as having her here.
If you are comfortable responding, what range did your wedding budget fall into? $10,000-$25,000
What is the one detail or vendor that you were so happy to have as a part of your wedding? Definitely Britney and Ben from Tucker Images. They are absolutely phenomenal. Not only are their photography skills amazing, but their personalities really catch your attention. I had tons of people tell me after the wedding how much they enjoyed our photographers. Britney and Ben are so easy to get a long with and very professional. I can’t say enough positive things about this awesome couple!
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Enjoy the planning stages, but don’t get so consumed with it that you forget the whole reason you are having a wedding in the first place. Spend time with your fiancé and go on dates that don’t include wedding talk. You still need to invest in your relationship!
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you most looking forward to about married life? I don’t really know what is next for us as a couple. Wherever God leads us is where we will go. For right now, we will enjoy being newlyweds and spending time with friends and family, and someday, we will start a family of our own.

Remember that gorgeous light I spoke about in Part I? Here it is again in these divine portraits from Adam Barnes! Absolutely dreamy!

A mini-food fan, I know our Emily was completely smitten when she first peeked at Tami + James’ reception. I love how T + J not only served adorable and yummy food, but it came complete with a story — the best part! Each course was a customized culinary trip through their lives, from “Childhood Favorites,” “Southern Comfort” and “Old Bay,” all the way to “The City That Never Sleeps.” What fun!

P.S. Be sure to scroll all the way down and read about T + J’s Great Gatsby moment! So cool!

We had an outdoor cocktail hour among the Carriage House and Gazebo at the Thomas Birkby House, where we served our signature cocktail, a strawberry mojito and oysters in mini Ball jars with individual Tabasco pairings.

What was your reception like? It was a tented reception where guests enjoyed our personalized four-course dinner and dancing afterward.  When planning the wedding, I wanted to incorporate something that would blow James away, and decided to surprise him with a cigar roller and scotch bar, which ended up being a huge hit at the reception!  The cigar roller did his thing on the patio, just outside of the tent, where many of our guests congregated after dinner to enjoy the last few minutes of sunlight and socialize among the trees and carriage house.  For an added unique touch of evening ambiance, we projected a romantic 1920s silent film in the background against the carriage house. The scene of bow-tied gentlemen enjoying cigars while entertaining each other and their lovely ladies was magical, drawing a comment from one guest likening the evening to one of the many painted by Scott Fitzgerald in The Great Gatsby.

Food is a big part of our lives. Growing up, we both had family dinners on Sundays and everyone always seemed to be in and around the kitchen enjoying the food and drink that day’s host was preparing. As a continuation of our quest to make our wedding personal, we took the opportunity to come up with a menu that reflected the path of our lives. We started with a “Childhood Favorites” course of Lobster corndogs, grilled cheese and tomato soup shooters, and a side of gold fish crackers. Then on to “Southern Comfort,” a nod to my Southern roots with white cheddar, gruyere and truffle oil mac and cheese, a country biscuit with Virginia ham, and shrimp and grits. The third course was “Old Bay,” a nod to James’ hometown and late night college years with Maryland crab cakes and a mini philly cheesesteaks with shoestring fries. To finish the meal and kick off the toasts, we ended with our fourth course, “The City That Never Sleeps,” which was a manhattan, the city where we currently make our home.

Describe some of the decorations or décor elements you used: We used vintage scales, vintage cigar boxes, homemade painted wooden signs, ball jars with burlap wrapping, homemade burlap silverware holders with individually sewn flowers, and a homemade “sweets” sign over the dessert bar
Describe your centerpieces: They were a mix of pale pink peonies, hydrangeas, dahlias and roses in vintage wood boxes, vintage tins and apothecary jars. They were arranged around stacked antique books and vintage tea cups with tea light candles inside.  The table number signs were designed to reflect specific parts of our personalities and story, including a Christian Louboutin pump, a bull and bear (James works on Wall Street), golf clubs, a Virginia peanut, and more.

My favorite detail of the wedding was the custom farm table my mother and father built for us to serve as the “head table.”  We weren’t allowed to see it until the day of the wedding and we were truly blown away. The most special part was that they engraved T + J on the top! It is something we can’t wait to move into our home (once we leave the cozy confines of the West Village) and incorporate into holiday family traditions. 

Tell us a bit about your first dance. We danced to Jason Mraz’s “Lucky,” which we liked because it was light and fun, and we both feel that we are each other’s best friend.  James tried to organize us for dance lessons a few weeks before the wedding, but we had too many other things to take care of.  We faked our way through it and just had fun with a couple of “homemade” twirls and dips.  None of our guests noticed the lack of dance skills, or at least we don’t think so!!

Describe your wedding cake: We used Maggie Austin’s ruffle cake design, a beautiful white cake with sugar peonies and dahlias to match our wedding flowers.  It was the classic Maggie Austin cake with meticulously molded hand-ruffled layers.  We had two flavors: peanut butter butter-creme and white velvet cake with raspberry preserves. The cake served as the centerpiece of our dessert bar, surrounded by mini strawberry milkshakes, pop-tarts on a stick, cake pops and other sweet treats.

What was Southern about your wedding? Everything from the country music playing in the background, the sweet tea served pre-ceremony, and the “Southern Comfort” menu complete with shrimp and grits, mac and cheese and a delicious country biscuits with Virginia ham.
What was the most memorable or touching moment about your wedding day?  James’ speech, welcoming everyone to our wedding and hearing him talk about the first time he saw me and how he knew good things were to come.  It was quite the tear-jerker for all of the ladies at the wedding.
What were some of the highlights? The personalized menu was a hit with everyone — definitely something bespoke that had the intended effect of sharing with our guests the formative times in our lives. Our guests also loved the scotch bar and cigar roller!
What was the funniest moment?  What was the scariest? The funniest moment was trying to get the ring bearer to sit with the wedding party for group pictures.  Lou, James’ best man ended up grabbing the back of his overalls to keep him from exploring the gardens! The scariest moment was standing up in front of all our family and friends and taking the leap!
Were there any family traditions you included in the reception? No, but James’ father gave a beautiful blessing before dinner.
Did you toss the garter or bouquet? Both.  James tossed my garter to Jimi Hendrix’s “Foxy Lady,” a fitting tune, especially given James’ love of the guitar and Jimi Hendrix in particular.  His college band mates got a kick out of it!
Tell us about your grand exit. As a parting gift, and to keep the party rolling, we made s’mores kits for all our guests.  We all piled into a trolley enjoying whatever cocktail happened to be in our hot little hands at the end of the night and proceeded to the fire pit at the resort where everyone was staying.  It was the perfect way to end the evening, where guests who hadn’t had a chance to catch up could banter about their latest happenings and new friendships made that evening were solidified.  James and I were a few of the last to leave, enjoying everyone’s well-wishes and hearing about their personal evening highlights.
Groom’s favorite detail of the wedding:  The custom cigar labels Tami had made for our scotch and cigar bar!!
What was the biggest challenge you faced when planning your wedding?  Time management. We wanted everything to be perfect and spent a lot of our time focused on the details.  As the date neared, we weren’t quite sure we could get it all done.  But, thanks to a combined family effort, everything went off without a hitch!
What range did your budget fall into?  $25,000-$50,000
Did you take a honeymoon?  If so, where? We took a wonderful trip to the Amalfi coast in Italy, spending time on the island of Capri and the coastal towns of Ravello and Positano.  We loved the casual glamour of the Mediterranean, and of course the food and wine!
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future?  We are tremendously blessed with many opportunities that may either keep us in New York, or take us somewhere new.  But, for now, we can’t wait to make the most of our time as a young couple in New York City.

This may sound cheesy, but looking through the images of Malloree + Jordan’s wedding makes me feel warm and fuzzy. The newlyweds crafted a ceremony that was thoughtful, filled with faith and full of love from friends and family. We’re grateful for The Reason for giving us so many great images from their “I do’s.” Scroll through and you’ll see what I’m talking about when I say their group prayer could bring tears to your eyes. Of course, you’ll instantly smile when you see M + J’s cute personalized paper items at their reception!

I brought my mom, my youngest sister, and four of my bridesmaids dress shopping with me. I had already gone dress shopping with my mom, but was stuck on two dresses. I was also stuck on what I had envisioned myself looking like on my wedding day (in all lace) or going with what my mom liked best (a ball gown). Most of my girls actually liked my mom’s pick better, but when I really thought about it, I knew that if I bought the ball gown, I would be thinking about the all-lace, vintage looking dress. So that is what I went with and I couldn’t have loved my dress more. It was a perfect fit for our farm wedding.

We will never tire of seeing adorable ring bearers! We especially love this one’s sign — a sweet change from the usual “Here comes the bride.”

Our favorite detail of the wedding was: Washing each other’s feet during the ceremony and asking family and friends who wanted to pray for us to stand and join us. EVERYONE stood and gathered around us. It was beautiful.

Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? We did. That was important to us. My favorite part was that both of us quoted Ruth 1:16-17, “But Ruth said, ‘Do not urge me to leave you or to return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there will I be buried. May the Lord do so to me and more also if anything but death parts me from you.”
Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding. The bridal processional was to “Where I Belong” by Cory Asbury. We washed each other’s feet to “Wedding Day” by Casting Crowns, had the prayer to “Before the Throne” by Shane & Shane, and recessed to “Mine to Love” by Dave Barnes. Our first dance was to “Close Enough” by Sean McConnell.

Our wedding was located on a 500-acre farm complete with open fields and a beautiful, rustic barn. Some traditions we incorporated were having a groom’s cake. Jordan had two cheesecakes with a banner from his alma mater. The food served was delicious BBQ sliders, my grandmother’s macaroni and cheese recipe, apple cole slaw, chicken fingers and more.

Describe your wedding cake or dessert: Wedding cake was delicious. It was two-tiered with white buttercream on the outside. The inside was ombre and went from strawberry, lemon, to white wedding cake. The outside was decorated beautifully with flowers from the wedding.

The most memorable moment of the day was dancing with my two favorite men, my husband and my daddy. Also, our reception was probably one of the most fun dance parties I’ve ever been a part of.

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We met as missionaries in Australia. We were both at a missionary training school called Youth With a Mission. Dating isn’t allowed within the program while you’re there, which is great because it doesn’t allow for distractions. But our hearts were starting to change toward the other, without the other even knowing! So to make a VERY long story short, through much prayer and lots of waiting, leaving each other for two months to separate field outreaches to Papua New Guinea and East Timor, we finally started dating after our graduation on June 10. We traveled to Sydney for two weeks afterwards and then I made my trip back to Georgia and Jordan went back to Texas. We traveled back and forth for two months until we decided that I would move to Texas. I’ve been here happily ever since!
Describe the proposal. We dated for four months before we got engaged. Everyone always says, “When you know, you know.” I thought that was such a crock until it happened to us! I told Jordan that I didn’t want anything over the top because that’s just not who we are, and Jordan was up for the challenge. On Sunday, October 30th, we went to church in the morning and then made plans to spend the day with his family like we do every Sunday. I made plans to have coffee with his sister while the rest of the family was supposedly at home. In the middle of our coffee date, we get a phone call from our sister-in-law asking if we wanted to meet her and our nephew Jax for some ice cream. When we met them, my sister-in-law said, “Jax, show Malloree what you learned at Sunday school today!” He handed me a folded up piece of paper, so I unfold it and started reading it. It’s a letter from Jordan. I knew what was happening and just tried to whiz through the letter to get to the end. I looked up after I finished speed reading and my handsome man was walking toward me, all dressed up, ring in hand. After he asked and I finally said yes, the whole family came out of nowhere, as well as the surprise photographer! Jordan did a wonderful job, incorporating some of my favorite things, our nephew and ice cream, and I loved spending it with the family.
In what month did you get married? May
How many guests attended your wedding? 140
Did you decide to do a “first look”? We talked about it, but Jordan is very traditional and he did not want to see me at all the day of. I was really glad that we didn’t, because the anticipation of seeing each other for the first time was so great.
Describe your wedding flowers: Beautiful — coral peonies, Juliet roses, ranunculus, hydrangeas, and tons of wildflowers. Our flowers were one of my favorite parts of the whole wedding.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? Planning a Georgia wedding while living in Texas and also keeping in mind that it was my wedding, my one day. I had to really consider that when others’ opinions rubbed me the wrong way.
What range did your wedding budget fall into? $10,000 – $25,000
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? Having a videographer
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Don’t get caught up in the details. Hire a wedding planner, or at least a day-of coordinator. Remember that it is your wedding and it doesn’t always have to be traditional.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? Right now, we are enjoying being newlyweds and starting life as just the two of us. We are looking forward to one day starting a family and potentially going back into ministry in the next few years.
