THEIR STORYBRIDE Kathleen Garson, 26, a dual language teacher specialist and dyslexia interventionist GROOM Luke Crossett, 30, a mortgage analyst HOW THEY MET Through an online dating site WEDDING STYLE Kathleen and Luke drew inspiration from their venue’s Blue Ridge Mountain views and let the property’s natural beauty speak for itself. They added touches of turquoise and apricot for color and copper for shine throughout the reception. —MH
Kathleen carried a mix of white anemones and ranunculus with accents of fresh greenery. Custom heraldry invitations included a whimsical floral design with a tiny Texas star (a subtle nod to their roots) tucked into the leaves.
Kathleen’s seven bridesmaids wore ivory floor-length chiffon dresses. The couple’s custom crest made its way from the stationery to the classic buttercream wedding cake, which was finished with small bunches of fresh flowers. “We wanted everything to feel natural and welcoming,” Kathleen says.
Rustic, whitewashed farm tables were dressed up with glowing copper lanterns, low floral arrangements and white linen runners. In lieu of traditional escort cards, Kathleen
and Luke opted for a more creative approach: flags attached to little copper bells.
