Fantastic Wedding for Sarah and George at All Saints' Chapel!

Sarah and George met back in 2005 when they were both river guides in Western North Carolina. After a few trips down the river, they got to know each other and started dating. In 2010 Sarah moved to Raleigh and their relationship became long distance for two long years. George proposed in 2011 and was able to re-locate finally to Raleigh in 2012 and they set the wedding date of November 23, 2013.  And the wedding planning began--a long time coming! They chose All Saints Chapel for the wedding ceremony and The Stockroom for their reception. 
They also chose Marilyn Wienand, Carolina Harp, to provide heavenly music for their wedding ceremony. Marilyn is fantastic and her harp is gorgeous. She also plays piano and organ if anyone is in need of her enormous talent!
The chapel was beautiful with the flower petals and candles on the altar.
Cateringworks did all the florals as well as catering the reception. So pretty!
So, we were ready to begin right on time. Our wedding director in the background is Amelia Davey of When In White. She cued the first couple in who was Mark, father of the groom, and Rebecca, stepmother of the groom.
Our groom, George, escorted his mother, Lana, then joined us at the altar.
Watching the bridesmaids process in.
Our beautiful bride was escorted in by her beautiful mother, Mary!
We began with a warm welcome, prayer, and remembrance of those who have passed on (Sarah's dad).
Then we paid tribute to the parents and then their story!
Their story was fun to tell and we enjoyed some laughs too. 
They read their vows to each other from my book and then exchanged rings. (Our photographer was Max with Blue Box Weddings.)
The closing blessing and pronouncement of marriage was next.
The best part---the kiss! 
Look at that smile on George's face! 
Sarah and George, congratulations! Wonderful wedding and I could tell all your guests really enjoyed being witnesses to your love and commitment to each other. I wish you all the best life can offer!
