Emilee and Bryce had an all-in-one ceremony and reception at Southpointe Golf Club in early March. These two have been together since sophomore year in high school. They currently live in Morgantown where Bryce is finishing up his studies at WVU.
The day started with the ladies and men getting ready in their respective Southpointe Golf Club’s locker rooms. Sometimes, we as photographers will ask you to slip your dress on in an area with better light for great prep photos and we have some favorite spots at Southpointe for this. Emilee was so nice to let us do this. We couldn’t get over her uncanny resemblance to actress Sarah Hyland. Bryce was down for any kind of photos and told us to feel free to direct him.
After the prep photos, we headed out for a windy first look. The weather was quite chilly but everyone was troopers and we got all the photos with the bridal party done. The ceremony was held in the ballroom. The guests then headed to the cocktail hour in the lobby while the space was flipped into the reception room. Having done a first look when you’re having an all-in-one ceremony and reception allows for the best flow of the day for the guests and the couple.
A few interesting details at the reception were the groom’s cake featuring a photo of his beloved dog Maggie and tuxedo style chocolate covered strawberries for those who didn’t want cake. Of course, no wedding for WVU alums is complete without the singing of Country Roads. Emilee and Bryce had a glow stick send-off.
Note to the couple:
