Such a Beautiful Wedding for Liz and Rob at The Stockroom!

Liz and Rob are a great couple and I enjoyed working with them on their wonderful wedding ceremony. Their wedding was October 10th, 2015 at The Stockroom in downtown Raleigh. 
The simplicity of their decor was elegant--fabric draping of the altar area and vases of Baby's Breath flanking the aisle. Their bouquets and boutonnieres were crafted of colored paper into beautiful "handgrown blossoms" by It's Flower Thyme.
Very attractive wedding programs......
While the guests were arriving for the wedding (in the rain--the groomsmen met guests at the curb and escorted them inside under big umbrellas) the bridal party and parents were sequestered in the Mahler Gallery next door.  I came down to check things out and get the signatures for the marriage license.
Once the guests had arrived and been seated we began the processional. Kelly from Empire Eats (caterer) was supposed to direct the wedding but unfortunately came down with an illness and could not be there. Another wonderful person from Empire Eats stepped in and we got every one in as we rehearsed. Here comes our very sweet little flower girl, Ella--daughter of one of the bridesmaids, who did a great job!
Liz was escorted down the aisle by her brother, Jon, and as they came forward, Liz's mother, Delores, joined them. Liz's hand was passed into Rob's and they turned and faced each other.
A warm welcome to their guests, a tribute to their parents and remembrance of their loved ones who have passed on including Liz's father.
Liz and Rob met almost 3 years ago. They were fixed up by a mutual friend who just knew they were perfect for each other and she was right! From the moment they met, they connected and have never looked back.
They made their vows to each other and exchanged rings. 
I pronounced them married and invited Rob to kiss his beautiful wife! He sure did! 
That sweet "after-kiss" moment!
Thrilled to present these newlyweds to their guests!
And they step into their new lives as wife and husband!
Liz and Rob, what a gorgeous wedding you put together! You are such a wonderful couple and it was my honor to join you in marriage. I wish you the best forever!
