A Classic, Romantic Wedding At Big Spring Farm in Lexington, Virginia

Taylor Weeks (22 and a veterinary assistant) and Isaiah Welch (21 and a Lowe's delivery driver and U.S. Marines reservist) had a specific criterion in mind when vetting wedding venues for their ceremony. “We visited a few places and I wasn’t in love with any of them. I was dead set on finding an outdoor scene by the water,” Taylor says of the search. The couple finally came across Big Spring Farm in Lexington, Virginia. With a large lake and nearby natural springs, they knew it was the one. The couple worked with the venue to create a menu for the day, settling on a buffet-style setup that included fresh green beans, chicken cordon bleu and mashed potatoes. “Isaiah loves lemonade,” Taylor says, "so for the drinks at our wedding we had a lemonade bar with fresh raspberries, strawberries and lemons for added flavor.” The bride's dress matched the classical, romantic theme. Taylor chose an elegant champagne-colored Cinderella-style ball gown with an embroidered illusion neckline by Allure Bridals. Isaiah and Taylor made sure to inject their fun personality into the reception, by including a photo both with fun props for the guests to use. A final parting gift? A candy buffet for attendees to pick and choose their favorite sweets. Taylor’s thoughts on her wedding day? “It was absolutely perfect!”
