Lindsay & Wes - the Lodge at Buckberry Creek - Jaclyn Paige Photography

Recipe for a beautiful wedding weekend according to Lindsay and Wes: Start with an amazing location overlooking the mountains.  Get ready for the wedding day festivities with a rehearsal dinner in a pavilion next to a creek with 75 friends and family, with music provided by a blue grass band.  On the big day, decorate with amazing flowers, and wear a dress that fits you perfectly.  Have a pastor that you've known since middle school officiate the ceremony and have a string duo set the tone. Add some delicious mini-cupcakes in lots of different flavors and set them up on a multi-tiered tower.  For variety, sprinkle in a little Elvis and then dance the night away with tunes that suit your crowd.  The main ingredient you must not forget is an adorable couple who loves each other to pieces!  Congratulations Lindsay and Wes!  --Jaclyn

Kelsey & John - Wedding at the Lodge at Buckberry Creek - Jaclyn Paige Photography

Kelsey and John had their ceremony and reception at the beautiful Buckberry Creek Lodge, where Joshua and I have worked several weddings now.  What an amazing place!  Even with the rain and fog, the mountain backdrop and the rustic setting made for a lovely wedding day.  There's a first time for everything, and this wedding had at least two firsts for us: a cat in the bride's dressing room, and the mention of sushi during the vows, both of which are testaments to Kelsey's bubbly personality and how well suited Kelsey and John are for each other.  With the exception of her sister, all of Kelseys bridesmaids work with her at Belleza Salon in Turkey Creek.  Needless to say, their hair and make-up looked incredible (along with Kelsey's mom's, thanks to Kelsey's handiwork)!  After the ceremony the celebration with family and friends ensued, with music provided by DJ Stan. Imagine owls on the wedding cake, burlap around the table vases, chocolate-covered strawberries, singularly-placed over-sized white balloons, amazing pink and green flowers: all details that came together to make the day special and one-of-a-kind. Congratulations, John and Kelsey! --Jaclyn
