Sweet Savannah Brinegar (nee Woodie) is next in our new tradition of promoting and lovin' up our BT brides and both she and her gown were picture perfect on July 15th when she married Michael on a mountaintop. These are something we in this area have access to for hiking, exploring and gorgeous weddings. At Old Orchard Creek Farm, they assembled outside with what Savannah referred to as “perfect weather” and no rain plan.
“If it rained, we were just going to buy 200 umbrellas and dance in the rain.” You love her already, right? So do we! The couple and their family and friends enjoyed not only the scenery of the mountain views, but especially the reception where everyone did indeed dance and had a blast celebrating a new partnership.
:Savannah was one of those brides who made her plan with specific considerations in mind; she thought beyond “what looks good on me?” The wedding location was important and being swathed in layers and layers of taffeta or a big puffy skirt wasn’t going to work. She ended up choosing a gown that was mountaintop appropriate, comfortable and still true to her personality.
"I was not about to walk across the top of a mountain in a huge white dress that's just not what I wanted. I was dress shopping with my aunt when I found my dress, I sent my mom pictures and she was not crazy about it, I convinced her we had to make the drive to Wilkes so she could see it in person. I knew it was the one! She will admit on the day of my bridal pictures that she was wrong and the dress was perfect. I was comfortable and it fit my personality perfectly and I loved the lace details on my dress and the color.
No one at BT ever gave up on trying to find me the right dress even after trying on so many different ones, and everyone helped me choose when I knew it was the dress I wanted. The dress was also unique and unlike dresses I had looked at in other stores."
