A Classic Spring Wedding at Burritt on the Mountain in Huntsville, Alabama
Laura Wiersma (23 and an accountant) and Ryan Graves (23 and an engineer) dated for seven years after first meeting in their high school marching band. During Laura's last semester of college, she was studying at Ryan's house when she accidentally found a jewelry box in his desk drawer when she was looking for an eraser. "I couldn't help myself—I had to open it!" says Laura. "After I found my engagement ring, the next five months were torturous but I was still so surprised when he asked me after a rainy walk on the beach." For their big day, the couple planned a navy and yellow affair at Burritt on the Mountain in Huntsville, Alabama. Burlap and Sunflower accents added a spring feel to the indoor reception and a comfort food menu including fried chicken, mashed potatoes and fried okra enhanced the southern celebration.
