Wedding Wednesday - Beryl + Trey Clemson Wedding

Good afternoon Clemson Girls! We are thrilled to be able to post TWO Wedding Wednesday posts today thanks to the amazing Red Apple Tree Photography and a super sweet couple.

Earlier today we shared Clemson alums Beryl and Trey's gorgeous Clemson engagement photos and their sweet, sweet love story. If you haven't yet, please make sure you check it out...

Red Apple Tree Photography also shared Beryl and Trey's Clemson wedding photos with us, and they were so beautiful, and the wedding was so creative, we HAD to share them with you!

Here are some details from our post earlier today about the couple's wedding:
Beryl and Trey got married under the Owen Pavilion at the Clemson University Conference Center. The same place where Beryl had her class ring ceremony. "So I received the two rings that I wear every day in the same place!", Beryl said, "The view of Lake Hartwell was absolutely stunning as the sun was setting!!"

Clemson Wedding Traditions & Ideas: Beryl told us, "We had a Clemson garter, a Clemson groom's cake, a Clemson alumni picture, and of course cheered as loud as possible for Tiger Rag! My favorite Clemson touch, though, was our last song. When we were at Clemson, we were regulars at Tiger Town Tavern. We would frequently stay until close, and Triple TTT's last song of the night is 'Wagon Wheel' by Old Crow Medicine Show. So, just like old times, our last song was Wagon Wheel as well!" Love, love, love this idea!

We asked Beryl if there was anything else special she wanted to share with us, and she said, "Something that was very special to me was that my dad performed the wedding ceremony. He still walked me down the aisle of course! But after he handed me off to Trey, he just kept on going to the front of the alter to begin the ceremony. My dad means so much to me that I really wanted him, not anyone who we were not as close to, to perform the ceremony, so he became a notary public just for us!

And I couldn't have pulled the wedding off without my beautiful mother. She made every single burlap detail by hand, including over 100 tiny burlap favor bags! She hand-painted signs for the flower girl, welcome table, and our sweetheart table and made all of my bridesmaids gifts! Everywhere I looked on the wedding day reminded me of how talented and special she is to me.

Another really special detail was our main color: aquamarine. My name, Beryl, is a mineral that can come in many different forms, one of which is the stone aquamarine. AND to make it even more precious, Trey's birthstone is...aquamarine :) So tell me that the fact that my name is Trey's birthstone doesn't mean it was meant to be! ;)"

It was so hard to not want to share ALL of their photos - want to see them all? Visit Red Apple Tree Photography's website and view the entire gallery!

Thanks again to Beryl and Trey for sharing their story and wedding details with us. Special thanks also to Red Apple Tree Photography -- check them out on Facebook if you haven't already.
