Kaitlin and Chris' wedding was on a beautiful fall day--October 20th 2018 at the NC State Park Alumni Center on the Centennial Campus. It had rained the day before but the grounds had dried out and the ceremony site was all ready to go.
Their guests filled every seat!Bunn DJ Company was our expert DJ for the ceremony and the reception. He was all set up and ready to go too.
Erin McCauley with Chestnut and Vine Wedding Coordination was our wedding director. She specializes in "day of wedding coordination." This was the first time Erin and I had worked together and we both had been looking forward to this wedding. We look forward to many more too!
The English Garden provided the florals for this wedding. Pretty pots of bright red lined the generous wide aisle.
In between the pots of flowers were plaques with verses of First Corinthians about Love.
The groomsmen then entered one by one.
They made their way down the aisle to join Chris.
Groomsman David and bridesmaid Emily entered together.
Our best man, Matt, escorted in Chris' sister Meg (maid of honor) and Kaitlin's sister Jess (matron of honor).
The guests are invited to stand in honor of the bride.
Kaitlin's mother, Melissa, is in a wheelchair but that did not stop her from joining Ed, to escort their daughter down the aisle.
Kaitlin and Chris enjoyed hearing their story and watching their friends and family enjoy it too.
Love the laughter and fun!
Then Chris gets to hear what Kaitlin told me about her love for him.
They read their vows (secret from each other) to each other from my book while placing the rings.
I pronounced them husband and wife and invited them to share their first kiss as a married couple.
Everyone was cheering them on! Their photographer, Faith Teasley, moves in for a closer photo.
I introduced them to their guests and invited them to stand and join me in congratulating them!
Some photo-ops on the way out!
The wedding party then exits.
Kaitlin and Chris! What a wonderful wedding you put together. I am honored to have joined you in marriage. Thank you for the opportunity. I loved working with you to create your very unique ceremony. I wish you all the best!
