All weddings are sweet and emotional, but this one just pulls at my heart so much!
Faith Victoria and Dalton are both such kind and quiet people. They had a laid back day planned to enjoy with their family, with a little kicked up fun at the reception, and so many sentimental details that made their wedding unique.
While looking for a venue for their destination wedding, they visited the Greenbrier for the first time. Immediately, Faith Victoria knew it was where she wanted to get married. They wanted a destination that their guests would really enjoy, and a beautiful place for a wedding, and the Greenbrier was it.
Faith Victoria and her bridal party spent the morning getting ready in the East Terrace Suite, which is officially my new favorite place for bridal preps at The Greenbrier! The light in these rooms is just amazing! They’re also really conveniently located and the East Terrace decor is so bright and cheery. Having a terrace to enjoy is just an added bonus!
Dalton and the guys spent the morning on the golf course before heading back to the golf club to get dressed for the wedding ceremony.
The wedding ceremony was held in the Greenbrier Chapel, with a reception in the Cameo Ballroom.
Gifts and Sentimental Details
There were so many gifts and sentimental details in the day that I could not possibly list them all. Faith Victoria had monogrammed gifts for her bridal party and family, including special handkerchiefs for her parents.
We get to see touching father/daughter stories play out every weekend. This one goes above and beyond though. Faith Victoria’s dad requires a wheelchair. He can not walk, can not stand. Several years ago, he saw this standing chair at a trade show and bought it, so that one day, he could walk his daughter down the aisle.
They also modified it with a platform so that he could twirl her around the dance floor for their first dance! It was the perfect vision of a father’s love and devotion.
Both Faith Victoria and Dalton have lost a brother, and both were honored at their wedding ceremony.
The couple also exchanged gifts with one another before their wedding ceremony. Faith Victoria opened her gift from Dalton and laughed, stating “He’s so extra!”
Faith Victoria also surprised Dalton with an ice sculpture at the reception. Even better than the amazing sculpture was how much Dalton enjoyed the surprise!
Near the end of the reception, Faith Victoria changed into her mom’s wedding dress, which had been redesigned as the perfect dancing and leaving dress. They closed out the evening with a confetti canon send off.
Wedding Party Toasts
I’m a sucker for a good wedding toast, and this wedding was full of them. It means so much for your maid of honor or best man to put the time, effort, and heart into crafting a great speech, and their friends knocked it out of the park. Faith Victoria’s friends shared what her lifelong friendship has meant to them with a quote on “Forever Friend” and Dalton’s best man described him as
“If you know Dalton, you know he is a truth teller. Dalton is everyone’s biggest hype man, and it’s not often I give Dalton the hype he deserves. Dalton is a bull-riding, airplane-flying, pool-sharking, lawyer extraordinaire.”
May we all have friends who hold us in such high-esteem as Faith Victoria and Dalton, and may we be able to see ourselves through their eyes.
