1 6 F a l l | W i n t e r B R I D E YEW DELL "YES" 11.5.2016 Erin Wiser & Chris Bivens Ages: Both 30. Occupations: Erin is a production manager and Chris is a carpenter. How they met: At school in Savannah, Georgia. Engagement story: After knowing each other for more than 10 years, they decided it was time to make it official and get married. Number of wedding guests: 115. Ceremony and reception: Yew Dell Botanical Gardens. Wedding theme: "Since we got married in the fall in the evening, we wanted to use darker, fall tones such as dark red, lilac, peach and cream," says Erin. "We both like the outdoors and got married at a botanical garden, so we wanted the highlight to really be the surroundings." Entertainment: "We had a photo booth for people to do when they weren't dancing and have photos to take with them to remember the night." Personal touches: "We wanted to get married in Louisville, my hometown, so that my grandparents could attend," says Erin. "My uncle married us, and Chris' dad did the reading. For the processional, we picked songs that we liked. A piano, cello and violin trio played Fleetwood Mac's 'Never Going Back Again' and Nico's 'These Days.' We drank Dark 'N' Stormys and Kentucky Bourbon Barrel beer." Decor: The Gheen's Barn at Yew Dell was small and felt intimate, and we liked it because it was beautiful all on its own and didn't need a lot of additional decorations. Like the ceremony, the pavilion was naturally really pretty, so we didn't have to dress it up too much. We strung round lights from the ceiling and had round tables with white tablecloths and farm tables for the buffet. We used our bridesmaid bouquets as centerpieces and used photos from our years of dating on the tables as table markers." First dance song: "'That's How Strong My Love Is.' We were really thoughtful about our first-dance, father/daughter and mother/son dances. Chris danced with his mom to 'Hold on, I'm Comin''' by Sam & Dave, which was the song she danced to with her father. We did the anniversary dance and ended up sharing the floor with my grandparents, who gave us their advice at the end of the dance — never go to bed angry." The day in three words: "Fun, relaxed, memorable." Wed On Weddings LOCAL
