Over a year ago, before we had to worry about pandemics or the cares that come with a new year, these two sweethearts were married. In May of 2019, Carlie Mickel and Dylan Deskins committed themselves to each other at Trinkle Mansion Bed and Breakfast in Wytheville Virginia. They chose a beautiful spot to say their vows and the day turned out to be gorgeous. A small family ceremony was all it took, and some skillful planning as a bride.
The Preparations and Ceremony
Carlie had the ceremony down to the minute and this included picking up flowers, the drive from Elkin to Virginia, getting ready and then being escorted down the hall and stairs to meet her future husband.
"Dylan and I chose to write our own vows, no matter how badly we stumbled through them. As our unity symbol, we had a sign that says Mr. and Mrs. and our wedding date with an accompanying lock that has no key.
After we were pronounced husband and wife, we hugged each of our family members and then went into our first dance. We danced to "Dance with Me" by Morgan Evans featuring Kelsea Ballerini.
Then we had cake and neither one of us trusted the other while feeding the other. While our guests ate cake, Dylan and I ran away to take pictures. After pictures were through we came back to our family for them to say their goodbyes."
This couple met through a mutual friend and on a blind date. After finding each other in classes at Wilkes Community College, they kept seeing each other and their relationship grew.
"Cost was not an option when I was looking for my dress. I told myself that I would know when I had the 'one' and I was going to take it home at whatever cost. I chose not to look at many bridal gowns because I didn’t want to overthink every detail of every dress I tried on. I knew I wanted sleeves but that was the only requirement I had for the dress."
"I looked amazing in the dress and it was a big part of choosing it. It was the first dress I tried on and I felt tears come to my eyes and I brushed them off. I tried on two other gowns but I kept comparing them to the first gown. My gown had sleeves that could be added to it and I just couldn’t stop looking at myself in it."
Congratulations to Carlie and Dylan on their new life together. We loved helping make part of your wedding dream happen.
