A Black and White Wedding With Rustic Flair

There’s nothing as classic as a black and white wedding, but for their summer nuptials, Brittaney Sloan and Jordan Canupp managed to intertwine some rustic vibes for a celebration that’s playful and elegant. Take a peek at their wedding in the photos below by Jennifer Gulley Photography.

To get Brittaney to notice him, Jordan employed one of the oldest tricks in the book: he pretended he needed help on his homework for the economics class they were both enrolled in their sophomore year of college. Brittaney saw through the ruse, but after months of persistence on Jordan’s part, she finally let him take her to dinner.

They’d dated for two and a half years when Brittaney and Jordan were spending Thanksgiving at Brittaney’s aunt and uncle’s lake house in North Carolina. While Brittaney was cooking a dish for Thanksgiving dinner, Jordan went down to the dock to wait for her. When she came out to grab him for lunch, he insisted she join him out by the water, where he got down on one knee and asked he to be his wife.

For their August wedding, Brittaney had pieces of her late grandmother’s dress sew inside her own so that she would be beside her through the wedding day. A church ceremony was followed by a country club reception, decked out in gold accents.

At the reception, the bride and groom danced to “You Were Made for Me” by Sam Cooke before cutting into a shortcake with fresh fruit and buttercream. Guests were gifted Old Bay-flavored caramel popcorn from Fisher’s Popcorn before they bid the bride and groom goodnight with a sparkler send-off.
