Chrissy contacted me over a year before her wedding to Chris slated for October 20, 2012 at Doubletree Suites. I had officiated the wedding of her mother, Ursula, to her stepfather, Richard, back in 2007. I was so honored to officiate for Chrissy and Chris and I knew I would also get to see Ursula and Richard at their wedding. So, we met on 10/20/11, exactly a year in advance, to plan their ceremony. A beautiful ceremony with lots of both sweetness and humor emerged from our joint efforts and we were all excited for the wedding day to arrive. And, it dawned bright and sunny with temps in the seventies! Perfect!
The huge reception area at the Doubletree Suites was ready.
What a beautiful cake by Simply Cakes!Doubletree. Amy and I have worked together for years. She is so efficient and reliable. Thanks, Amy! In black is Kristen Stoneman of N The Mix Events, our DJ. With her is her assistant, Laura, who is also a full time nurse who likes to get away from it all and go to events with Kristen! Kristen has years of experience as a DJ and is expanding into weddings. She is the only female DJ in the Triangle! She is also a good friend of my daughter who books the music for Piper's Tavern.
Quite popular these days are old windows repurposed for weddings. This one has the table assignments on it.
It's time to get this show on the road!
I think at this point I had said to Chris as to why Chrissy wanted to marry him: "Chris, you are smart, strong, stubborn and have great facial hair when you let it grow. Do you think that is a hint?" He told me that Chrissy likes him with a beard!
