Ole Time Barbecue was the caterer and had everything set up.
The menu looked delicious!The Blossom Shop and the theme was casual and "down home."
Blue Moon Bakery provided these great cupcakes which were displayed in the gazebo in the garden.
The bride and groom's table...
A Sound Solution in Durham. He is a friend of the couple and provided the ceremony music.
And so we began. The ceremony was sweet, touching and fun!
A special touch the couple added to the ceremony was an excerpt from Bob Dylan's "Wedding Song" which was really quite wonderful! The guests particularly enjoyed hearing about how they met and what they loved about each other and what they look forward to in marriage. This is where their quick wits and humor were expressed!
The BIG moment....
And they are off on their new adventure...their marriage!Crystal Genes, took the wedding party around the block for photos after the wedding and I caught up with them there after packing up my sound system. Her fabulous photos of this wedding are now on her blog here!
Amanda and Derek, you are a refreshing and out-of-the-box couple! I admire your determination and individuality. I know you are going to have a great marriage! I wish you all the best!
