You know it’s a special love story when the bride and groom have known each other since middle school…AND were middle school sweethearts. And in this case, it’s certainly no exception. Although they weren’t together initially as adults, they came back together again. And this time they tied the knot in front of family and friends, hundreds of candles and stunning florals. Beth and Chris’s Virginia Early Mountain Vineyard wedding was everything we love in rustic chic design; sage green garlands and farm tables, candles and cork table accents, and a true love story! Thank you to Lieb Photographic for sharing their romantic Virginia rustic wedding with us today via Matchology!
Tell us your proposal story: “After dating long distance for 3 years, Chris asked Beth to move to Virginia and she said yes. The move was all set for January 2015. Unbeknownst to Beth, Chris had a surprise up his sleeve. On December 24, 2014, they were at Beth’s house getting ready to go to a family Christmas feast. Chris was insistent that they each open one gift before leaving. Beth was feeling a bit funny so she gave him his soup thermos gift. He then gave her a Louis Vuitton wallet with a little something inside. When she pulled out the ring he immediately got down on one knee and asked her to be his forever! The sweetest part of the story was that he secretly set up his phone to video the entire proposal.”
What were your wedding priorities and special moments? “We definitely wanted good food and good entertainment. We wanted to host the best party that our guests had ever been to. I loved that my 92-year-old grandmother could be there. I loved that a dear family friend married us for a more intimate ceremony. “
