Optimist Club Farm in Apex. It is a beautiful site with a clubhouse and a gentle slope to a pretty lake and lots of land in the back for parking. We were all set up for the guests to arrive.
The Cupcake Bar set up the table of sweets. Another table held the place cards and some foam drink holders for the guests. There was a wishing tree where the guests wrote a wish for the couple and hung it on the tree.
I brought my copper-colored table for the Family Unity Sand Ceremony and placed it among the pretty chrysanthemums up front. Then it was just a matter of time before the guests got there. Beverly Harmon with B.E.S.T. Hair Designs was doing Sam's hair. Backyard Bistro was grilling in the back yard. John Hensley with Anything Music was our DJ and had the music playing. Friends of the couple, David and Cheryl Williams with Painted Pixels Photography, were snapping photos everywhere. The flowers came from the NC Farmer's Market.
We acknowledged Katie and Kendall and how important they are in this marriage.
You can't tell in the pictures but it is really windy and our hair is flying all around! So much for the hairdos!
"Walking on Sunshine" played as we all recessed.
