A Simple, Vibrant Wedding at Brandermill Country Club in Midlothian, Virginia
Ashley Hutchinson (36 and a registered nurse) and Joseph Vest (29 and a mortgage professional) met in a Bible group at their local church and later began dating. One night just before Christmas, upon arriving home from their Bible group, Joseph told Ashley to examine their Christmas tree closely. There, she found a jewelry box -- but it was empty. She turned around to find Joseph on one knee, asking her to marry him, and she said yes. The couple had their ceremony at the church where they met, which they decorated simply with silver streamers and balloons. The following reception took place at the Brandermill Country Club in Midlothian, Virginia, and Ashley and Joseph decked out that space with a color palette of bright red and Malibu blue. Red gerbera daisies and moss covered the tables, and the sweetheart table featured a large heart-shaped sign that read "Love." White and blue lanterns were hung across the hall for a playful touch. "We wanted our wedding to be casual and fun because we wanted to celebrate with people who have taught and encouraged us throughout our lives," Ashley says. Despite the rain that day, Ashley and Joseph's simple country club wedding was bright, fun and intimate.
