Ashley and Joey got married at Boxtree Lodge in Vinton, Virginia near Roanoke on the most perfect summer Saturday. A hint of crisp, fall weather and warm, diffuse sunlight went perfectly with views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Ashley wore a stunning blush, strapless mermaid-style gown with ivory lace overlay, accented by a jeweled, blush sash. Her maids wore simple, long strapless blush dresses with the same sweetheart neckline as the bride’s gown. The reception tables in the bare wood cabin were decorated with ivory table cloths and burlap runners and floral decor of beautiful pink and white hydrangeas and roses in vintage mason jars. Each table had a hockey puck decorated with Ashley and Joey’s initials, as a nod to Joey’s hockey career as head coach of the Virginia Tech hockey team. The quaint bridal and bridesmaids’ bouquets were filled with baby’s breath, white calla lilies, and a variety of pink roses. The “guest book” was two personalized hockey jerseys, one for the bride and one for the groom, numbered according to their wedding date, and the couple paid tribute to their late loved ones on a beautiful memory ladder.
