Vanessa always dreamed of having her dad walk her down the aisle and told me she just would not feel like she was married until that dream came true. And so, she diligently pursued it despite some bumps in the road. And Ryan was behind her all the way in realizing her dream. On May 30, 2010, the dream became a beautiful reality for Vanessa and Ryan as their wedding took place at the historic and elegant Preston Woodall House in Benson, NC. Their friends and family gathered from far and wide. The day was sunny and although we were relieved that it was not raining, the weather was quite hot and humid. We stayed inside until the last moment then began the ceremony as the guests got seated.
Preston Woodall House in Benson NC is only 40 miles from Raleigh. It is a restored and renovated historic old Southern home and bed and breakfast of the highest quality and a great setting for a wedding. The owners have procured the houses surrounding the property and turned them into quaint guest cottages where wedding guests can stay. I have been doing weddings here about 10 years now. They have a dedicated chef and the amenities are the best! It is truly a very special place and I love doing weddings here..

Our wedding DJ was Daniel Clodfelter with Anything Music. He did a great job of providing sound for me for the ceremony. Thanks, Daniel.
Ryan Murphy of Katwalk Studios wore three hats for Vanessa. She did her hair, makeup, and was our photographer! What a talented lady! Thanks, Ryan.
