Real Weddings: Marlana and Tyler's Reception

Marlana and Tyler were spot on with their color scheme and vision for their wedding! The gold, coral, peach, and turquoise tones tied all of the details together beautifully in their venue. The bride, Marlana, put so much hard work and effort into all the small things and it definitely shows! Let us know what you think, and enjoy the photos from D. Coleman Photography.





How did you portray your personal styles into your wedding day?
            We really wanted our wedding to be a fun and relaxing evening where we could spend time celebrating the start of our life together with our family and friends.  We didn’t really have a theme for our wedding, we just incorporated ideas from various sources that spoke to us during that planning process. 





What was your first dance song, and why?
            Our first dance was “All you need is love” by the Beatles.  We love the Beatles and the title speaks for itself!





Tyler and Marlana chose to set time aside during their reception to entertain their guests by playing The Shoe Game. It was a great way to get to know the bride and groom better as a couple, and add more fun to the day! 




What’s the one d├ęcor aspect that you most loved and will remember? 
            Definitely the flowers.  Marlana had a vision of the flowers in mind but wasn’t able to find a photo that really captured that vision.  Charity, the florist, must be a mind-reader; the morning of the wedding she delivered the most perfectly beautiful bouquets and floral garland for the mantle.

Real Weddings: Marlana and Tyler's Ceremony

This touch of warm January weather has us reminiscing on a favorite from this past summer! Tyler and Marlana celebrated their big day at the cozy and quaint Blackberry Creek Retreat in Rogersville, MO alongside family and friends. Check out their sweet nuptials captured by D. Coleman Photography




What was the most sentimental part of your ceremony?
            We both wrote a letter to other to read before the ceremony.  We each also wrote a letter to be read on our first anniversary and placed the letters in box during the ceremony.  We plan on writing letters to each other every anniversary and opening them the following year.






Why did you choose the ceremony space that you did?
We wanted an outdoor ceremony, and couldn’t imagine a more perfect place than the Blackberry Creek Retreat for our wedding.  The ceremony space is a large deck at the edge of the woods overlooking a creek.  The tree in the middle of the deck provided the perfect amount of shade for a summer wedding, and the lights strung through the tree created the perfect ambiance.





Did you choose to do any memorable events or traditions within your ceremony?

            In place of a unity candle, we had a “unity tree.”  We closed on our first home together just a few days before our wedding and thought it would be really special to plant a tree symbolizing our growing relationship in the yard of our first home.
