Avoca Museums & Historical Society, Altavista, Va | Jerome & Gwen's Wedding
That quote fits Gwen and Jerome's back story perfectly in many ways. But right now, their back story isn't what we want to tell. Suffice to say, a long journey has brought them together at long last, and their love for each other is a love that shouts from the rooftops and overflows into everyone around them. At our restaurant, Main Street Cafe & Coffee, we have this thing called #HumansofMainStreet (yes, we stole it from Humans of New York, shhhh don't tell him) where we tell a little bit about our customers' story. They're a lot of fun! Here is an excerpt of our interview with Gwen and Jerome a few months back.
Apart, they are two wonderful people. Together, they are an amazing couple. And their wedding day was nothing short of everything they are, all bundled up into one amazing event. It was hosted at Avoca Museums & Historical Society, in Altavista, VA - and, get this, the ceremony was right in the middle of their Craft Beer Festival! So much history has already been lived out in this beautiful old mansion and it was only fitting that these two local trailblazers would be making history here, too.
The gorgeous wildflower bouquet was provided by Terri at Airabella Flowers.
Terri also made Jerome's bowtie out of molted feathers from their parrot, Beethoven! Those feathers were also an accent on Gwen's hat.
Here's a few other highlights from their beautiful, fun, and love-filled day!
