Growing up in a small town might give some the impression that you would have a small wedding, but this was not the case at all for Courtney and Mike. Being the only daughter to the town’s local doctor resulted in a long guest list of patients, friends, neighbors and family. To accommodate everyone the couple chose to have two receptions, their first reception immediately following the ceremony at First United Methodist Church in Pearisburg, Virginia. In order to transform the church into a more elegant and brighter space from its current dark brick and low lighting, was quite a challenge. Over 60 candles were added to the ledge above the altar and side railings, ivory fabric was hung and bright floral arrangements throughout brightened the space. The hallway and gymnasium were lined in white fabric which covered all of the walls, an amazing transformation. During the reception guests enjoyed live music by harpist Whitney Dobyns as they watched the bride and groom cut their 6 layer wedding cake by Our Daily Bread. As the first reception came to an end, close friends and family made their way to the second reception at Rockwood Manor in Dublin, Virginia. Guests were greeted by a Jazz band and southern soul food by Professional Catering. As the evening went on dance music was provided by Russel Prusak and team of RSP Entertainment. The guests were fortunate to experience wedding games and tricks played on the bride and groom, a tradition that Courtney and Mike’s good friend directed and kept everyone laughing. To end the night the couple made a grand exit out the front of the house to everyone lined with sparklers leading them to the getaway car. Congratulations Courtney and Mike, may your life together be as spectacular and fun as your wedding day!
