We’re officially less than a week away from our big V5 launch!

When Emily and I first saw Lauren + Jeremy’s wedding, we instantly fell in love with their cheery ceremony design — happy waving flags lining the bride’s path to the succulent-decorated altar. We’re now finding there’s much more to love, including the officiant’s surprise performance of “Come Fly With Me” as the bridal party recessed and the handsome pup donning a bow tie. Don’t forget to scroll on down to read about Jeremy’s hilarious proposal! Big thanks to Theo Milo for sharing with us!

Tell us about finding your wedding dress: I plan events for a living, so most of the wedding planning felt like a second job to me, but shopping for a dress was a blast….except the sticker shock! I started my search at the most expensive boutique in town, only because it was the closest to my mother’s house. I fell in love with many dresses there but one stood out. It was pink and I’ve always been about pushing boundaries so I loved the idea of wearing something different. Plus, I could wear the sample right off the rack which meant I’d get a good deal and that appealed to my bargain shopper sensibilities. The bridal clerk had to check on the pricing for the sample and when she called me, it was still higher than I felt comfortable spending…so I continued the search. I went home and I started scouring the internet. Lo and behold, my dress was made by Priscilla of Boston who was going out of business and they were offering significant discounts for their sample dresses. I called the closest store which was in Raleigh,NC and they had the dress! My mother and I drove the next weekend to the store and I got my dress 60% off retail. I had to do some major alterations, but with the savings, that was no issue. The moral of the story is don’t say “yes” to the dress until you let your fingers do some walking on the internet. A great deal may be awaiting you. My only regret is that I wish I had also purchased a reception dress. I love to dance and I spent a lot of time managing my dress on the dance floor.

Did you decide to do a “first look”? Yes, we did a first look because we wanted to have the time to get good photos together but we didn’t want to miss our reception to do so. Additionally, we stayed the wedding weekend at a historic house right on the ocean that was so pretty and we wanted to use the location for our photos.
Did you write your own vows? No, we did not write our own vows but we chose the vows from some traditional ones. We got married outdoors and our ceremony was officiated by a dear friend of ours. Because of this, we had to create our whole ceremony on our own. It was a lot of work but it made our ceremony more personal.

The ceremony set-up was our favorite detail of the wedding. Our venue was often used for weddings but we were told we were the first to use the area that we did for a ceremony. The ceremony took place slightly off to the side of the reception venue in a sparse grassy area with a view of the island’s famed lighthouse behind it. It wasn’t very impressive, but we had vision for it. With the help of soft blue flags defining an aisle and a beautiful wooden table decorated with lanterns and succulents to create an altar, our vision was fulfilled. (Credit goes to Kim Fisher Designs for the décor.) Jeremy would say the cigar bar was his favorite!

What readings, if any, did you have at your ceremony? We had two readings in our ceremony. I chose a reading from Les Miserables (the novel), which also happens to be my favorite Broadway musical. Jeremy chose a more traditional reading from the Book of Genesis (the popular, stylized version of 2:18).
Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding. Since we wrote our own ceremony we were able to also choose whichever music we wanted. We hired a pianist and a violinist for the ceremony. We used traditional wedding music like Ariosa by Bach and Alla Hornpipe by Handle for the pre-ceremony and wedding party. I walked down the aisle to Ave Maria. Our favorite part, though, was that we walked out to Sinatra’s “Come Fly with Me,” which to all guests’ surprise was sung by our officiant, who is an actor and singer and has performed often in a one man Sinatra show. Our first dance song was a combo. We chose “Some Kind of Wonderful,” but got the band to start by playing the slow, soulful Drifters tune for two verses and then transition into the upbeat Grand Funk Railroad version (which is not a cover or remake, but a completely different song) to allow our guests to get in on the act!

Because we had many friends in from all around the country, including a large number of New Yorkers, we wanted to expose them to some of our favorite Southern treats and the beautiful coastline. Our mothers prepared 40 batches of my mom’s homemade pimento cheese that we had delivered to all the guests’ accommodations. We also had a low country shrimp boil for our rehearsal dinner. Additionally, we chose a Southern location that is exceptionally beautiful and shows off part of what being a Carolinian is all about – amazing beaches, great weather and a laid-back lifestyle.

What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? We planned most the wedding ourselves with a bit of help from our mothers. I am an event planner by trade so I did most of the work as a way to save on the budget and ensure things were done to our liking. We both work long hours and I started a new job two days after our engagement. Our free time was limited and we had to stay the course to get it all done. It’s important to do a little each day and when help is offered, take it. Learn to delegate. Friends and family are usually happy to help. Identify your friends and family’s strengths and use their help when offered in a way that each can best assist.

What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? The whole wedding weekend was memorable. That’s what’s so special about having a destination wedding – you get more than just a few hours to spend with some of the most important people in your life and it’s the only time they all gather together. However, I think one of the most memorable moments of our wedding day was when we finally sat for dinner. We had just finished our first dances, which we’d chosen to keep upbeat and fun. We danced so hard and had been at so many parties all week that when I finally sat down, I was exhausted. I turned to Jeremy and said, “I don’t know how I am going to make it to the end.” He agreed. Somehow, we not only made it to the end, but closed down the after party! Thank God for second winds and adrenaline!

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We met playing kickball. Jeremy was subbing on a flag football team whose strengths were better displayed at the bar after the games than on the field. Come the end of the season, the grizzled vets were ready to run it back, but Jeremy had the foresight to head them off and channel their talents into a sport into adult kickball. I was recently returned from New York City to my hometown of Charlotte, NC. I was young, single, my own boss and I was looking for a way to meet new people in a city where most my friends were already married with children. One of my friends happened to be trying something new…kickball. I would have NEVER played kickball in NYC but I felt it was only just that I try something new, too, and this was a way of socializing in Charlotte. You can guess where this is going, right? So Jeremy ran short a player now and again on the kickball team and once or twice, I subbed in. It wasn’t much, but it was an entree. And those who know Jeremy well know all he needs is a chip and a chair. He made getting to know me better his goal and waited for his moment. I didn’t even realize Jeremy was pursuing me in the beginning but eventually it became clear. By the end of October, he’d found his moment and we arranged a meet up at a Halloween party. And the rest, as they say, is history. We hit it off and have been like peas and carrots ever since.
Describe the proposal. After college, I spent the better part of a decade living in New York City and, along the way, found good friends and made good memories. I really loved it, which made the task of selecting that special ‘pop-the-question’ spot (marginally) easier for Jeremy. Jeremy chose the City as a nod to my past, but wanted to find some place in the city that would speak to our personality as a couple and our future together. He hit on the idea when, on a trip to the City to keep me company while I worked an event, he and a friend went to a beer festival on the newly-opened-to-the-public Governor’s Island in New York Harbor. The place itself is neat. An ex-military base that has found new life as a city park, it’s very similar to Central Park in that it’s the last thing you’d expect to find sitting smack in the middle of New York Harbor. It enjoys the views afforded its more well-known neighbors of Liberty Island and Ellis Island, but it doesn’t have the tourist problem. Unfortunately, getting me to the chosen spot was not casual. I like to think I am a smart cookie and Jeremy is a go-with-the-flow kind of guy, so for him to stick to his guns about going to a place so seemingly random as Governor’s Island was, for me, a new and different experience. So, I knew something was up. I figured this was going to be “it” but I didn’t know that Jeremy had also hired a photographer to follow us around and get that magic moment on kodachrome! Unfortunately, the person Jeremy chose was (1) not as covert as he might have been and (2) not as good at keeping up with the happy couple as he should have been. Within minutes of disembarking from the ferry, I got the inkling that the foreign-looking, bald-headed dude in the green shorts and pink shirt (yes, he was really dressed that loudly) was “following” us. This feeling (and the evidence supporting it) only got stronger as the we made our way around the southern tip of the island and the clandestine photog took a more “in your face” approach to capturing the moments leading up to THE moment, culminating in a very “Austin Powers”-like dive behind a tree when I caught him getting snap-happy while we sat in some adirondack chairs. For the rest of our lap around the island, he was at a much safer distance. Sadly, the distance proved too safe because, before we’d made it back around the island to “the” spot, we encountered a large crowd on their way to a concert. Apparently, the photographer couldn’t mark us through the crowd and we emerged on the other side sans picture-taker. Jeremy stalled and plodded for a few minutes trying to give the photographer time to catch back up to the couple, but I was hot and tired and needed a drink, so what ensued was something akin to a sitcom proposal. As it is, Jeremy forgot to kneel as he blurted out “babyiloveyoumarryme?” I thought to myself, “that cannot be my moment!” so I pulled the situation back together and made Jeremy kneel and produce a proper proposal (which I then, promptly accepted). The photographer, of course, didn’t find us in time and missed capturing any of this on film.
In what month did you get married? May 12, 2012
How many guests attended your wedding? 130
Describe your wedding flowers: I didn’t want the whole décor to be about flowers so we used a lot of lanterns, candles, cloches and succulents in addition to flowers. I got married on Mother’s Day weekend so using non-floral elements also provided some cost benefits. The flowers we did use were cool tones to complement the natural setting around us. I wanted the whole space to feel light and airy like you could just float away. My florist sourced the most beautiful greenery and finest lush flowers to go in my bouquet and the centerpieces. My bridesmaid’s bouquets were simple white hydrangeas which popped well against their coral dresses. Their bouquets were placed in vases wrapped with rope on our cocktail and café tables on the terraced lawn, which provided amazing views of the marsh behind.
Describe your wedding cake or dessert: Jeremy has the sweet tooth so we opted for his favorite southern treat – key lime pie. We had a local baker make individual tartlets so they’d be easy to eat and serve.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? The biggest challenge we had was with my hair and make-up. Because the wedding was on an island only accessible by ferry, we had limited choices of professional salons. We decided to use the on-island spa, which was very nice and accommodating. They do multiple weddings on any given weekend so we expected nothing but a positive experience. The island was a four hour drive and a ferry ride from our home in Charlotte, NC, so we knew there’d be limited opportunities for tests. We started five months in advance during one of two trips prior to the wedding. The first test resulted in great makeup, but I was not pleased with my hair. The salon graciously offered me another complimentary hair test later that day but the day was windy and the ferry schedule changed which resulted in the salon closing early. The additional test was not possible, so we settled on returning in March to try again. That test went better, but then we got a call two weeks prior to the wedding informing us that the makeup artist and hair stylist had left the company so we’d have to start over. I stayed calm and agreed to the new hair test during the wedding week. The hair went over OK, but the makeup was a disaster leaving me looking orange and with no choice but to do my own makeup. Lesson learned. If possible, hire an independent contractor (who can’t leave) and schedule a long appointment to ensure you get everything right the first time. You don’t get to repeat your wedding day.
What range did your wedding budget fall into? $25,000-$50,000
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? I was happy that we splurged on our flowers and décor. I have an art degree, so the design elements were very important to me. We also were really happy that we splurged on special accommodations for our weekend. We stayed in a small historic two-bedroom house on Bald Head Island that was formerly one of the lighthouse keeper’s accommodations. Jeremy gave me a painting of the house along with a personal note in an old antique bottle as my wedding day gift.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We’ve started looking for a larger house to hold all of our registry gifts. In the meantime, we’ve been enjoying some well-deserved quality time together at a few of our friends’ destination weddings.

    I loved the soft color theme of the wedding. The photographer did a nice job of complementing the soft colors with soft focus areas in the photography (used shallow depth of field to good effect).

When Emily first showed me Connor Studio’s image of Emily + Chester’s DAR library reception, I immediately fell in love. Their dinner among the book stacks ranks among one of my favorite creative uses of a venue. But look a little closer and you’ll see that there’s more than just novelty in E + C’s wedding. Their elegant nods to family were executed flawlessly — at once sweet, lovely and subtle.

I admire Emily’s outlook on wedding planning, always thinking, “How blessed I am to even be having this issue!” We find her positivity and priorities infectious. “To have found the man I love and then to plan a celebration with our family and friends — almost every part of it was such a joy. I did find being true to myself and not bending to all the opinions around us was a difficult part of wedding planning. I am fortunate to have a fiancé that supported me every step of the way and we were so happy with the choices we made.”

Did you decide to do a “first look”? Yes, we wanted to enjoy the wedding in its entirety. We felt that in order to do so, it was important to take all our photos before the wedding. It was so special — we met on the rooftop of the DAR and I have never seen a happier look on Chester’s face!

I was determined to find a dress with sleeves. I first went to a dress maker in Tennessee, near my hometown, who ended up on the evening news as the top business to avoid by the Better Business Bureau. So two months before the wedding, I cancelled the order and starting hitting local salons. I found a beautiful dress in Old Town Alexandria and the alterations department assured me I could have the perfect sleeves that I wanted and I did. I could not have loved my dress more! My veil was worn by two of Chester’s cousins on their wedding day. I have become such close friends with both of them so it was very special to have my “something borrowed” be the veil they both wore. We all had very different style dresses but the same veil looked perfect with each of our dresses.

What readings, if any, did you have at your ceremony? My mother’s best friend read a letter on marriage written by Nancy Reagan when she was first lady of California. It was an amazing and very honest letter on the virtues of marriage. Since we are both staunch Democrats, I think everyone enjoyed that we chose Nancy Reagan for our reading.
Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding. My favorite song at the wedding was unexpected. For the toast, my Matron of Honor sang “Thank you for Being a Friend,” the theme song to Golden Girls, which is a show she and I have watching together endlessly. The guests chimed in for the last verse. It gives me chills just talking about it!
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? My old boss, Congressman Lincoln Davis, officiated the ceremony. It was so personal to Chester and I. We both remember being surprised by how much the ceremony moved us. It felt perfect. The toasts being a part of the ceremony were also a special addition. The best man, both matrons of honor and my father delivered beautiful toasts that had everyone laughing and crying. The ceremony was absolutely wonderful and so true to who we are as a couple.

Aren’t Emily + Chester’s place settings perfectly lovely? At first glance, they’re another beautiful detail of the wedding, but to the newlyweds and their guests, it was a thoughtful way to honor family.

All of my favorite details of the wedding revolved around the place settings. I had the idea to have the menu printed on a linen napkin. Our wedding planner and stationary vendor made the dream come true. They were beautiful and a conversation piece throughout the evening. On top of each napkin was a sprig of rosemary, which we included to remember Chester’s grandmother, Ottie. She passed away three weeks before the wedding. She was a great Italian cook and we wanted to honor her with something she loved. Most of our guests were very close to Ottie and this gave them a personal reminder of her on our wedding day.

Describe your wedding cake or dessert: I love cake! It was the first vendor we picked for the wedding. We had three flavors in a six-tier pale yellow buttercream cake with red velvet cake with dark ganache and cream cheese, marble cake filled with caramel, milk ganache, vanilla buttercream and crunchies, white chocolate cake filled with two layers of cookies and cream and chocolate American buttercream. We enjoyed the top tier on our one-month anniversary instead of our one year — I couldn’t wait!

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We first met on March 5, 2007 in the Russell Senate Office Building. Chester had just been hired by Senator Bayh’s office and I was already working in the office. After a morning of orientation for Chester, it was time for a staff meeting that I led. It was that meeting that sparked Chester’s interest in me. After a couple months of working in the same office together, Chester decided to invite me on a mission with him to scope out homes and neighborhoods for his sister and family’s pending move to the Washington, DC area. After our search, we rewarded ourselves with what became our first date — dinner at the no-frills Capitol Hill haunt, La Loma.
Describe the proposal. We were in San Juan, Puerto Rico on our fourth anniversary of our meeting. I was not aware the trip was organized around a special date. At midnight, Chester proposed to me in our hotel room.
In what month did you get married? April
How many guests attended your wedding? 170
Describe your wedding flowers: The ceremony floral was a single French urn of dogwood, apple blossoms, snowball viburnum, white French tulips and open cut roses. My bouquet was made of English garden roses, vitality garden roses, white freesia, white and green parrot tulips, dusty miller and mint. The bridesmaids carried bouquets of pale yellow and cream, open cut roses, snowball viburnum, white ranunculus, double cream narcissus, mint and dusty miller. The bouts were comprised of a yellow garden rose bud, green hellebores and accented with weigela foliage and kochia. We had two different styles for the reception flowers, because guests sat in two different rooms for dinner. In the library, guests were seated at six long, wooden rectangular tables. We kept the library’s lamps on the tables, and in between them were ceramic urns filled with snowball viburnum, roses, ranunculus, mint, and lady’s mantle. There were also clear bud vases filled with white, cream and pale yellow tulips. In the O’Byrne gallery, there were two long dining tables with a gorgeous gold and lilac print linen. There were four lush, tall arrangements made of snowball viburnum, hydrangea, open cut roses, lilac, mint, weigela foliage, rosemary and passion flower. In between these four were smaller vases of the same flowers.
What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? For me, being Southern is about being a gracious host and making people comfortable in your home or in this case, at your wedding. My mother is the best host I will ever know, so I wanted to make her proud by doing the same with our wedding. We created a hospitable environment by having the guest’s individual name on each program in calligraphy so they felt personally welcome. They were greeted with a champagne bar. At cocktail hour, we paid our respects to the South by having a Jack Daniels bar with various cocktails including Lynchburg Lemonade. At dinner, we served crab cakes and corn soufflé which reminded me so much of the corn pudding that I often ate growing up. I danced with my father to the Tennessee Waltz and my favorite song by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, “Islands in the Stream,” was played during dancing. We served late night cookies and milk and macaroni and cheese with BBQ on top.
What range did your wedding budget fall into? $75,000-$100,000
What is the one thing you are most happy you splurged on? Flowers. The flowers were breathtaking and gave the day have such a warm atmosphere and welcoming feel, which was everything I wanted.
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Hire a wedding planner. No matter what your budget, it makes things 100 times easier. I plan events as part of my job, but I knew on my wedding day I wanted to focus on Chester, our family and friends. With a planner, I was able to and it was seamless. I honestly think hiring a planner is the key to a happy day that focuses on your love, not on the event.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? Chester and I are looking forward to living in Washington DC, enjoying our careers and traveling.

Good morning friends! Have any of you watched the TV show, Hart of Dixie? I just caught an episode last night and fell in love with the melodic accents. Plus, I love Rachel Bilson — she’s so fab.

For those of you out there who aren’t morning people, this wedding will do the trick. It’s like a happy jolt of wedding coffee! We could not stop talking about Katie + Max’s wedding when it landed in our inbox and appeared on our computer screens during last year’s Real Wedding call for V4. The bright colors and huge amounts of handmade details (and this time I mean details — no corner of this wedding was ignored!) were the sweetest bits of eye candy. Katie + John are both artists working in the film industry and brought an energetic burst of life to the events. I don’t know where to begin with these images from Jodi Miller Photography, so I’ll let you soak in the joy at your own pace.

How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. I had just gotten my dream job. I walked in on the first day, and Max, who was an intern at the time, saw me as I first walked in to the front desk. Being new and needing training on the studio tools, I was put into a class with interns. Max was also in that class. After we started dating, Max was hired full time. We’re lucky to work at a place that accepts employee couples. We’re actually even in the same department.
Three adjectives that describe the day are: Bright, casual, intimate
How many guests attended your wedding? We had 42 family members, family friends, and close friends.
What was the design inspiration for your wedding? Why was this design special to you as a couple? We wanted a modern, colorful, fun, and casual design. I was so happy about marrying Max, but to be honest, I was also nervous about being a bride and receiving attention. I tried to counteract that feeling by really focusing on making the wedding casual and fun. Because we are both artists, we really had fun getting into the nitty gritty details. I probably spent way too much time deliberating over things that people would never notice, but it was so much fun to do anyway! I was quite happy with how everything turned out because I felt that it was a good melding of our styles. We made a lot of the details ourselves, but in doing so, decided to keep shapes, designs, and ideas simple. In deciding to make so much of it, what really helped more than anything else was a digital cutting tool. It could cut vector designs out of so many materials: cardstock, adhesive cardstock vinyl, and fabric ironed on to interfacing to name a few. I got it for Christmas, and I’m sure it has now paid for itself many times over!
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: I am pretty obsessed with my wedding dress, and if you had told me that I would be saying that even two months before the wedding, I wouldn’t have believed it. The hunt was extremely challenging and without hope for a long time. I knew what I wanted, but I just couldn’t find it. I wanted something romantic, but casual. I was about to lose hope until a friend at work encouraged me to keep up my search. I had a back-up dress that would work just in case, but I went to go look again. I ended up finding the dress on Etsy. It was what I had wanted all along. The girl who designed and made it even let me tweak a few of the details! It arrived less than a month before the wedding, which is terrifying, but what a relief!
Briefly describe your wedding flowers: The dining table arrangements were clusters of pink and orange ranunculus, yellow mums, and billy buttons in bud vases. The cocktail table arrangements were ranunculus and chamomile. My bouquet was made of white, light pink, dark pink, yellow, red, and orange ranunculus, delphinium, scabiosa, billy buttons, and chamomile.
Tell me a bit about the wedding ceremony. The sun came out for the first time in days right before the ceremony began. An unbelievably fun bluegrass band, Northridge, was playing as we all walked down the aisle. We had a lot of fun picking out the songs, and we decided on Teardrop Waltz and Lover’s Waltz for the processional. It really helped keep the feeling casual. We had a very sweet and brief service. We had a reading of Robert Fulghum’s Union. At the end of the ceremony, we walked back down the aisle to Big Rock Candy Mountain, which is a very whimsical, fun, and upbeat song.
Did you try anything new or untraditional? Is mistakenly allowing your partner to put the ring on the wrong finger considered new or nontraditional?
