Truffles and Whiskey Wedding

View More Photos

Julie and Walker met early in life when they attended the same school together. They had known each other since Kindergarten but Walker did not ask Julie to start dating until High School. Their first date was a picnic lunch so when Walker proposed he did it the same way! He had set up a picnic lunch which included their dog, Oliver, and had attached the ring to his collar during lunch. The engagement ring Walker used had a diamond that was passed down from his grandmother. Of course, Julie said, "Yes!"

The wedding vision was very classic. Their ceremony was a full Catholic Mass, while their reception was very casual and not just a sit-down dinner. They decided to do more of the cocktails and appetizer style rather than a full dinner. They had chosen items that reflected some of their favorite dates. The reception location they had chosen was a very bar or laidback feel that they both loved. The décor only included arrangements of white flowers and tons of candles to give the area more of a romantic feel on that Saturday afternoon. The dress attire for the wedding was cocktail attire. Walker chose to wear a full tuxedo and Julie decided to wear a traditional a-line dress that fit they soft feel of the reception.

Julie and Walker decided to leave a lot of what was considered "traditional" out of their wedding because it didn't represent them as a couple. They took out the traditional sit-down dinner, dancing, a band, garter and bouquet toss. The reception was on the shorter side, lasting about 2 and a half hours but gave them plenty of time to socialize with guests and enjoy some cocktails and appetizers. Those appetizers included cheeses, wine, cake, sliders, truffles and a list of alcoholic beverages for their guests to enjoy. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, the reception location made them a cake made out of cake pops. Some advice from the couple to those planning their wedding, "Take planning slowly, and set a specific time to work on things. For us, we decided that Tuesdays would be our bigger planning days. We would go get dinner and brought a laptop to a brewery to plan. That way we didn't get distracted by anything at home, and could focus on the decisions we needed to make. Having that set time to plan kept the stress off for us."
