The winter theme of Meagan Dingler and Ryan Murphy’s wedding was very appropriate on the chili Saturday after Thanksgiving. Inside Darlington Chapel, this theme was displayed through the white hydrangeas scattered along the aisle, candles spread across the altar and elegant programs with ornate silver detailing. On the Chapel doors were hung wreaths with shining white ribbons tied in bows. As guests entered, a pianist played familiar tunes such as “God Bless the Broken Road” and “You Lift Me Up.” When it came time for the bridesmaids, wearing their light blue dresses with varying necklines, to walk down the aisle with the dashing groomsmen, the pianist played a modern wedding song from the 1950s, “To a Wild Rose.”
Entering the Coosa Country Club for the reception, guests discovered a lovely cocktail style reception with elegant décor that exuded a wonderful winter feel. Pine clippings, silver and blue glass ornaments, white candles, and silver metal trees graced the guest tables. The four tiered wedding cake with light blue icing, complete with snowflakes and sugar crystal snow, was impressive. (I must say it was my favorite cake I have ever seen from Honeymoon Bakery! It was just lovely.) Continuing with the winter theme, the couple gave their guests hot cocoa mix in adorable personalized bags as favors.
Following a plentiful buffet provided by Coosa Country Club, the wedding party was announced to the guests before the newlyweds entered the room for their first dance to Adele’s cover of “To Make You Feel My Love.” After a short and sweet toast from the Maid of Honor and Best Man, the TC Show got the guests on the dance floor with some fun and upbeat music for dancing!
