The Oaks at Salem was all prepped and ready.
The reception area under the tent was cooler and all ready for the guests after the ceremony. Rocky Top Catering was providing the goodies!The Oaks and this was her first wedding solo. Joslin, the events facilitator I usually work with, had her baby girl early--the night before our rehearsal! Veni is a wonderful addition to the staff at The Oaks and really earned her stripes on this wedding with all the coordinating and dashing back and forth. I really appreciate that she gives me and the DJ a ride from the house to the ceremony site to get the sound set up.
Making Memories DJ Service, was set up and ready. Our photographer and videographer, Martin Vojtek with Martin Video and Photography was set up too.
I haven't clue who the guy behind us is! We were busy talking away!
From the other side of the lake, the bridesmaids and groomsmen entered.
This bridesmaid gave up and just took her heels off and walked barefooted!
Now our maid of honor and best man come along.
Miranda, our youngest flower girl, needed some assistance!
Haleigh gets going on down the aisle!
Scotty gets the cue to start the music for the bride.
It is an impressive walk around the lake and so beautiful!
Now we begin this wonderful ceremony that was full of laughter and tears!
Alan popped the question two years later during a trip to Blowing Rock and of course Ashley said yes!
Being very careful not to drop the rings!
Alan placed the ring on Ashley's finger while saying the chosen words to her.
They got tickled while Ashley was trying to put the ring on Alan's finger!
A short closing blessing followed then the legal moment they become husband and wife!
I invited Alan to kiss his beautiful wife then made a beeline to get out of the way!
And it was a good thing that I did!
Here they are, folks, all married!
Let's go, baby!
And they strutted down the aisle so happy to be married at last!
And off into the future happily ever after!
My husband and I were so pleased with how helpful Kayelily was from start to finish. She answered every small question we had, was very detailed in every step of the process and she was extremely professional, but yet so friendly she felt like family. We felt very comfortable with Kayelily and we will be recommending her to friends and family going forward. Everyone at our wedding commented on how graceful she was and we agree! Absolutely wonderful ceremony! We would not have had it any other way. Thank you so much for making our day absolutely perfect!
