Bride and groom’s names:
Richard and Molly Lyons
How did you meet your husband?
I met my husband through friends. My best friend Lucy was part of a group that got together every Thursday for dinner and drinks. It just so happened that at my first dinner I sat next to the guy that would become my future husband.
Tell us the story of how he popped the question:
My husband told me that he had an important work dinner and that spouses were supposed to attend. He also told me it was a special occasion so I got my nails done and a new outfit. The dinner was supposed to be in downtown Roswell, and he told me that his boss was running late so he took me to the park to kill time. When we crossed the bridge, I turned around and he was on one knee asking me to marry him. My sister and brother in law were there to photograph the whole thing.
What was your wedding date and why did you choose it?
September 30th, I liked the way nine thirty twenty eighteen sounded. Also the weather that time of year is great for weddings.
What was your overall vision for your wedding?
Authentically us, comfortable, classic, and most of all FUN!
What do you feel was the most special component of your wedding?
Being surrounded by all of our family and friends, especially the ones who traveled so far to support us. That meant so much!
Molly & Richard’s Dusty Blue + Blush Vintage Wedding
Did you have a wedding theme or color pallet, and if so how or why did you choose it?
I had a slight idea of the colors I wanted. I wanted a lot of white and greenery with pops of navy and blush. I had to select a color pallet because I found out that a wedding is nearly impossible to plan without one. I only changed it about 3 times. haha
How important are the typical wedding traditions? Did you plan on doing
something outside of the norm to make your wedding more of your own?
They were important to a certain extent. I loved the sacredness of a ceremony with the traditional vows. I also loved the Father/Daughter, Mother/Son, First dance etc. The others i.e garter toss and bouquet toss weren’t really my thing. I wanted my wedding to be unique so I brought in special touches like Prissy Plate Company for the place settings and had my cousin Allison with heirloom florals to the ceremony and reception. She has an incredible eye for design and It meant so much for her to help!
Why did you choose your wedding venue? I loved the dynamic look of it.
One moment you are in a rustic barn the next you are in an industrial, historic building. It has so much charm and personality to it that I knew right away it was the one. I also LOVED that you could bring in outside vendors. That was everything, especially since I wanted to Customize my wedding to what Richard and I wanted.
