bride-groom
February 22, 2016

“From the moment I met Chasity and Travis, I knew their Merry Hill Farm wedding was going to be a dream! These two were so very much in love as they shared the story of how they met, fell in love and got engaged. Not only do these two love each other deeply, they are so, so loved by their friends and family. There were so many evidences of this on their wedding day. You could see the love on each table in every hand crafted flower made by Chasity’s Grandmother. You could feel the love as Chasity’s bridesmaids surrounded her with tears of joy and prayed over her on her wedding day and as Travis’ best man jokingly described his daunting 30 minute move away for college and wondered how they could survive the distance. You could sense the deep adoration Chasity’s Dad has for her as they shared their father daughter dance and he rested his tearful eyes on her shoulder. You could not help but smile as Travis and his mom grinned from ear to ear during their mother and son dance. You could experience the joy first hand as their friends surrounded them on the dance floor in celebration and the two danced the night away under the stars. This is what dream weddings are made of. They are made of two people, deeply in love, making vows of commitment, for better or for worse surrounded by all the people who love them the most. – Five Copper Creative

What is your favorite wedding day memory?

There was such a funny moment when the last song played at the reception before we had our sparkler farewell with the guests. Our DJ played “The Time of My Life” from Dirty Dancing. We had no idea that was going to be the last song played. When Travis and I heard it, we immediately attempted to reenact that dance scene from the movie to the best of our limited dance abilities! I even did the running and jumping into his arms like Baby does with Johnny in the movie. Hilarious!

What did you DIY for your wedding?

When I say that practically everything was DIY, I am not exaggerating! Every flower arrangement, other than the bouquets myself and the bridesmaids had, were handmade by my grandmother. She also made all of our napkin rings, candle holders and flowers for the archways. The centerpiece wood slices were also DIY’d. My grandparents actually saw some men clearing some trees from land and asked if they would mind cutting some slices of wood from the trees. We cleaned and sanded all of the slices ourselves with the help of our family. My grandmother made my wedding veil herself as well. I’m telling you, she’s practically Martha Stewart! Our cupcakes were made my a friend of the family, Ms. Sharon. They tasted amazing! She made three different kinds for each tier. Our wedding invitations were made by my husband, as he is a graphic designer and could make just what we wanted. We ordered envelopes and figured out how to made gold “belly bands” (what wraps around the invitation, RSVP cards, etc.) on our own and put them together as a DIY project one weekend. Our wedding favors were DIY as well. My husband made Mixed CD’s of our favorite songs that were going to be played during the reception. Lastly, our family members helped to make the jam that we gave out as favors, as well. {The jam went great with the biscuit bar we had as the cocktail hour!}

Something old, new, borrowed and blue?

I tied my Grandfather’s military ring to my bouquet as my something old. He passed away 10 years ago and I wanted a piece of him with me on the big day. My something new was my wedding earrings given to me by one of my Bridesmaids. My something borrowed was a ring of my Grandmother’s that I wore on my right hand. Lastly, my something blue, was an undergarment!

Any advice for brides currently in the planning process?

Try your best to live in the moment of the planning process. Looking back on planning my own wedding, I was so future focused during that time, thinking constantly about the next thing to check off of my list and just how perfect I thought everything needed to be on the big day. I wish I could relive it all over again and truly be present during the process and enjoy the picking and choosing of the planning. -Chasity, the bride
