Julie & Jarod

Julie and Jarod are a beautiful couple, inside and out, and they knew exactly what they wanted for their wedding! They chose St. Paul’s Methodist Church in Christiansburg, Virginia to hold their ceremony. Julie’s parents were married there too, making it even more special. St. Paul’s is a striking church with a classic white steeple, large open windows aligning the walls and a long aisle. The bridesmaids wore black strapless dresses with bouquets of luscious pink Esperance roses arranged by Gabe and staff at Northside Floral Shop. Julie’s bouquet also had the Esperance roses, along with a few pink lily’s, just beautiful!
After the ceremony, guests travelled to the Virginia Tech Skelton Inn & Conference Center in Blacksburg, Virginia, where they began mingling for cocktail hour. For dinner the ballroom was decorated with black linens, white chair covers with black sashes. The centerpieces too had big pink Esperance roses and white hydrangeas, the arrangements varied between tall trumpet and round glass vases. The food was delicious, the couple chose the Chicken Oscar as one of the items on the buffet, a Skelton Inn favorite. The cake, made by Kelly Cakes of Roanoke was amazing. Each cake layer was designed differently, including the couples monogram on one layer. DJ, Kerri Taylor facilitated the night, interacting with the guests and keeping everyone dancing. At the end of the night all of the guests made their way outside to line the sidewalk with sparklers. Julie and Jarod made their way all the way through the sparkler line to jump in their limousine and be whisked away to their honeymoon. They were finally married!
