The big day arrived and although it was Halloween, that was not their theme at all. They hired a band--Groovetown--and one of the guitarists played for the ceremony. The Cookery is an old building that has wonderful exposed brick and wide open spaces. It was formerly the Durham Food Co-op and has been transformed into a state of the art kitchen and entertainment venue, particularly great for weddings. Of course they provide the food for the venue so you don't have to hire a caterer. This is the second wedding I have done there this year.
Tre Bella did the florals. Sarah Morris served as their day-of-coordinator and wedding director. I have known Sarah for several years when she worked at a venue in Raleigh and it was great to work with her again. Sorry that we did not get a photo of her!

This is the wall in front of which we will stand for the ceremony.
Shannon is escorted in by her father, Scott.
The guests are standing in her honor as they float down the aisle!
Drew's stepfather, John, is his best man. Our maid of honor is Shannon's sister, Megan.
The photographers for this wedding were Rachel and Seth with Blue Barn Photography.
I don't know if this shot is before or after the kiss!
A glancing shot as they speed down the aisle!
Arm in arm together!
