Real Wedding Wednesday: Larry and Kayla

Hello, fellow wedding lovers! Today I have a gorgeous day to show you!

Kayla and Larry were married at the historic bed and breakfast, The Maridor, in Roanoke, VA, on March 30th, 2019.

Kayla chose a very simple and romantic color palette to go along with the charm and landscaping of the historic bed and breakfast venue. Don’t you love her bridesmaids’ velvet gowns?!

After the pair got ready with their wedding party, it was time for the big moment.

Kayla glided down the rose petal covered aisle with her father by her side.

Look at Larry’s face when he saw her! Be still my heart…

After saying their vows, they were pronounced man and wife!

“Larry and I were just friends most of high school and then started dating our senior year,” Kayla recalled. “We then left for different colleges, VT and Longwood University, so we were long distance for four, surprisingly very easy, years! We ended up back in our hometown after school where he soon after proposed!”

When long-distance it easy, you know it is meant to be!

And I am obsessed with Kayla’s gown! Would you look at that lace and button detail!!!

The reception took place indoors and had the most adorable details including these coffee bean favors for guests.

They had a breakfast buffet for the meal because they both love breakfast so much! Of course, no breakfast is complete without duck donuts!

After the night was over, they left in a sea of bubbles…

…and rode off into their happily ever after! Congratulations Kayla and Larry!

From the Bride:

What was your favorite detail from the day? “My favorite detail of the day (SO hard to pick) would probably be our breakfast for dinner buffet! We are HUGE breakfast for dinner fans so our reception dinner with a pancake bar, biscuits and gravy, mimosas, sangria, and coffee bar was absolutely perfect! We also skipped a wedding cake and went with a Duck Donuts display instead!”
What advice would you give to a bride to be? “The best advice I could give to a bride would be to not worry about having every “traditional” wedding detail as a part of your day. Have all the things that you and your fiance love and what represents you two! You’ll be so glad your day was unique and full of your favorite things without pressure to have everything that a “traditional” wedding has!”
