As we continue to receive 2016 Wedding of the Year applications, we’re reminiscing and admiring our 2015 applicants. William & Adair Barber sent us an inside look into their softly romantic June wedding.

Light and Airy Theme

Adair described the overarching feel behind the wedding, saying “From our first planning session, we wanted the wedding to be beautiful, elegant and simple. The whole wedding was full of joy and celebration, and was reflected in the cheerful decor! The soft pinks, bright greens and elegant decorations created a cohesive and classic ambiance.”


Every detail, down to the place cards, was planned with careful attention. Adair explained, “William proposed on the top of Carter Mountain Orchard at sunset, so we wanted to have a special way to celebrate that day.” Download your 2016 Wedding of the Year Application today!
