Farm Fresh Wedding
The bride Beth tells us, “We both grew up in Conway, SC and went to high school together. We had our first date ever with each other followed by a brief crush. Six years later, we reignited the spark of romance and love. I spent the following year teaching in Honduras for a bilingual mission school.” Bryan said, “I pursued Beth daily until she returned. Three years later we finally tied the knot… a dream come true.”
“We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect day celebrating our love with all our family and friends! Our wedding was a blast from start to finish. Our ceremony was at Kingston Presbyterian Church located in historic downtown Conway on the riverfront. Getting married in the church was important to us because Beth’s dad was able to co-officiate as an ordained deacon. Also, both our moms read scripture because they have both been spiritual mentors in our lives.”
Beth says, “I had a few ‘craft nights’ at my house to make several handmade wedding projects come together. First, the invites (and programs) were designed by my very talented cousin, Rebecca. My mom, mother-in-law, and matron of honor got together to add the finishing touches to them.”
“Our reception was at the gorgeous Wildberry Farm. This venue was the perfect place to enjoy the pristine beauty of the countryside and kickoff our marriage with good food and dancing! All of the beautiful flowers were locally grown by the groom and his dad at Yuri Hana Flower Farm (although, the peonies were grown at Dual Venture Farm). That made all the flowers even more special for us. Then, they were arranged by the amazing team at Blossom’s Events. The whole venue and decor came together perfectly.”
“The table runners were made from hand-picked fabric from the bride and cut with pinking shears by a bridesmaid (Correen). Bryan’s mom handmade magnolia wreaths for the church doors and did all the flowers (which were favors) for the rehearsal dinner. The cupcake toppers were made by the bride and matron of honor, Bridget, and the cupcake stand was made for her wedding by her dad. The cake toppers were painted by the craft night gals and finished along with the signs by Beth’s bridesmaid, Sarah.”
Then, we handmade several chalkboards for special details for the wedding (menu, love story timeline, his/her drinks, and other various signs). We also made favor bags of sunflower and zinnia seeds (including handprinted cards designed by Beth’s sister, Maria).
“Doing so many handmade projects made the pre-planning more fun, and it also made the wedding day more special. We couldn’t have been more blessed and thrilled by how wonderfully our big day unfolded!”
