Christie and Charles wed in the Raulston Arboretum Rose Garden

Today was a wonderful day for Christie and Charles's serene garden wedding surrounded by their families and closest friends in the Finley-Nottingham Rose Garden at NC State’s JC Raulston Arboretum. In their ceremony we remembered Charles' daughter, Isabella, who unfortunately could not be with us for the wedding and paid tribute to all the grandparents and parents who were with us. We also included a cup of wine ceremony in remembrance of Christie's grandfather who has passed on but was with us in spirit. They read their beautiful vows to each other and exchanged rings. The pronouncement was made followed by their first kiss as husband and wife and it was time for picture taking and a reception celebration at La Residence in Chapel Hill where I also do a lot of patio weddings. Thanks to Amanda Byrne (sweetheart of Christie's brother) for these great photos! She really has a good eye for composition! Amanda told me that she enjoys taking pictures as a hobby on the side of her regular work at a non-profit and would be happy to work with couples on a limited budget for their wedding.

Best of everything, Christie and Charles!
