In her eyes he found something more beautiful than the Rappahannock

Corrie and Ben married at an intimate wedding ceremony at THE TIDE’S INN, a quiet, luxury resort hidden between a golf course and an inlet of water that runs to the Rappahannock River, and just beyond that, the Chesapeake Bay.

Our wonderful friend Emily Artistry was there for hair & makeup, and florals were supplied by The Wild Bunch, a floral designer based in nearby Kilmarnock, Virginia, Michael’s hometown.  

Corrie’s daughters provided laughs and smiles, and they caught blue crabs from the water after the ceremony. At the end, they danced together to live music at the Inn, and after that, guests that didn’t know them wept and applauded.

FROM CAROLINE: “Our wedding took place at Big Spring Farm in Lexington, Virginia – a place and a city very close to our hearts. Cole and I met at Big Spring when we were both undergraduates at Washington & Lee University. We would go on to get engaged there and, a year later, married under the weeping willow tree out on the peninsula at Big Spring.

One of our favorite parts about our time in Lexington was the beautiful outdoors, especially the Blue Ridge Mountains. This being said, what was most important to us was to bring our family and friends to this place and setting so close to our hearts. We wanted our wedding to be fun, joyful, and effortless, especially since so many of our guest travelled long distances to come to our out-of-town wedding.

Our vision was to let the Virginia mountains speak for themselves, which is why we chose a neutral color scheme and natural greenery for most of our flowers. We felt as though Michael and Carina’s film photography let that vision come to life in a way that was authentic and timeless. We hoped that all of our details and invitations echoed this theme as well.”

Madeline & Brad married at Wavering Place in South Carolina; their wedding was recently featured in Martha Stewart Weddings.

Excerpt from Martha Stewart: ‘It’s not often that a wedding beautifully masters multiple themes, but when one does, it’s especially captivating. That was the case for Madeline and Brad’s fall celebration. The black-tie event was undeniably formal but didn’t shy away from rustic touches, including country motifs. “We would have to describe our wedding as a sophisticated southern affair with the understated elegance of autumn,” the bride shares. We would have to agree.

“We wanted to show our friends and family how much they mean to us by having the very best food, drinks, and entertainment along with an atmosphere that was elegant and dreamy at the same time,” Madeline explains. Shortly after getting engaged, the couple asked Meagan Warren to help them achieve their vision. Together, they planned a timeless event that centered around nature and tradition. The former inspired their rich color palette; the latter inspired their many meaningful touches. The romantic celebration was held at Wavering Place plantation in Eastover, South Carolina, located just 30 minutes from their Columbia home. Despite hosting 125 guests, the event felt surprisingly intimate.

“My most memorable moment was our first look. I can’t remember when I’ve been that nervous and excited to see Madeline,” Brad shared. “The sun was perfect, shining through the oak trees while I waited for her. When she was walking up behind me, before I turned around, her dress sounded like a ship’s sail coming in. When I turned around, I saw Madeline looking as beautiful as I had ever seen her. It was really a great memory!” His bride agrees. “It was such a special and personal moment for us to share with each other! I will never forget the way Brad looked at me the first time he saw me.”‘
