Wedding Wednesday: The Coffey Wedding

The Coffey Wedding

Laura Pruner’s and Eric Coffey’s first date was a long time in the making. They first met online, exchanging emails and phone calls, before finally meeting for their first date. Eric proposed on a weekend trip to Charleston, South Carolina, during an evening walk on the first night of their trip.

Their mutual faith was a large part of what made their wedding special. Laura says her favorite part of the ceremony was sharing communion with Eric, moments before they finally became man and wife. This is was when the tears finally started to fall, and was a very special moment for the two of them. The couple wants their mutual Christian faith at the center of their marriage, so it was only right for it to be the center of their ceremony as well.

A fun-filled reception followed the ceremony, where the bride and groom shared their first dance to the tune of “Love Of My Life,” and the guests got to enjoy a four tiered butter cake with butter cream frosting. It was a simple, elegant, cream colored cake, standing proud on a silver cake stand, which accented Laura’s gown’s silver beading and her silver sparkly shoes.

With a last name like Coffey, it would have been a shame to miss out on a pun inspired wedding favor. Each guest received a burlap bag of coffee with a label that read, “Enjoy this coffee from the Coffey’s.” The day was centered on elegance, shared faith, and a good pun, making for memories that will last a lifetime.

Wedding Wednesday: The Curran Wedding

Joey & Alexa Curran

 After meeting one night at a party during their high school years, Joey and Alexa have been together ever since! Joey planned a very romantic and surprising proposal for Alexa on the beach in Hilton Head during Thanksgiving. As they were walking toward the beach to “take a walk before dinner” Alexa saw chairs, champagne, and flowers set up and thought someone else was having their Thanksgiving dinner by the shore. It was quickly after that she realized this was all for her and before she knew it Joey was down on one knee. Their wedding featured a pink, navy, and cream color scheme with touches of greenery throughout giving the day a whimsical and romantic theme. During the reception, the wedding party and newlyweds all sat together facing the guests alongside windows that offered a scenic view of the golf course. The wedding was unique due to the all the special guests in attendance. High school friends, Joey’s soccer teammates, and Alexa’s sorority sisters all came, and some even traveled from far distances like Canada and England to be with them on their special day. As a nod to Joey’s soccer days, Alexa put a unique spin on the garter toss and stashed a soccer ball under her dress. After removing the garter, Joey placed it on the ball and kicked it for the bachelors to catch, and it made for quite the laugh. Alexa’s favorite memory of the evening was her first dance with her husband. They chose the song “You’re Everything” by Michael Buble, which has been a special song to them throughout their relationship. To keep with the color scheme of the wedding during the couple’s send off, guests threw pink and navy confetti to end the night in celebration.
