From start to finish, this is a wedding that is all about the love. The kind of love that exists between a darling duo who happened to meet and fall in love five years ago, after growing up thousands of miles apart. One thing I’ve learned while working at SMP? Cupid has a funny way of helping you to meet “the one”… and it’s awesome. See it all captured by A.J. Dunlap Photography right here.
From A.J. Dunlap Photography… This was a day waiting to happen. Due to an unforeseen family situation, the couple had to postpone their wedding six months on the morning of the original day. It was tragic, but Mark & Seldon didn’t let it stop them from having their dream wedding six months later. With a few changes in decor to match the new season, they said their vows on November 23, 2013 in Asheville, NC at the gorgeous Biltmore Forest Country Club.
I know we all say every couple is perfect together, but I promise if you spend five minutes with these two, you’ll agree that they are meant to be. The groom is from Wales, UK and the bride is from NC. They never should have met. But fate had other plans, and put them working on the same private yacht together five years ago. Being in such close quarters with nothing but ocean around them, they quickly fell in love.
Fast forward to their wedding day, seeing these two tie the knot (and yes, they even tied a nautical knot) was perfection. Seldon had dreamed of this wedding for years. She planned it all out from across the ocean, not missing a single detail. Her gown was her dream Winnie Couture gown that she picked out on a girls’ weekend with her mom and bridesmaids at a boutique in Atlanta, GA. The decor was perfect: flowers, candles, vases and more lined the aisle and adorned the tables during the reception. The bride’s father handmade the arbor they were married under, and the ceremony was officiated by her uncle. The groom’s mom brought Welsh love spoons all the way from Wales for them to hand out to their guests as favors. Nothing was forgotten.
Currently, the couple is on their three month around the world honeymoon.
