Olivia and Thomas Peeler had a lively and fun wedding in Maggie Valley about a month ago at the Willow House and Social Barn. It was one of the most enjoyable weddings I have attended in a long time. Their entire wedding party were jovial as well as both sides of their families.
Both Thomas and Olivia are teachers enriching the lives of their students so it was wonderful to see a couple with like passions join together in love. Olivia even had family fly in from overseas to celebrate with them. Her Opa (Grandpa) was a spirited gentleman who had me laughing the entire time I was there. He also was not afraid to get out with everyone else and dance the night away.
For their ceremony they chose the front lawn of the Willow House overlooking the creek. For decor they had McKenzie Botanticals create colorful bouquets of wildflowers! They were the perfect pop to the bridesmaids gowns which were a muted shade of grey. Believe or not Olivia told me she ordered the gowns for $20 a piece off of Amazon and they could each be wrapped and worn different ways to suit those wearing them.
It really was a fun and relaxed wedding and I didn’t even want to leave that night. So often at weddings people become a little stiff but this was not one of them. It was a true celebration of a lovely couple and family.
