A Lovely Wedding at The Umstead for Sarah and Eric!

Sarah and Eric are such a well-suited couple for each other. They knew when they met that they were meant for each other. I think Eric was one of the most laid back grooms I've ever met too. He was calm as a cucumber. The wedding was Friday June 3rd, 2016 at The Umstead. Kelley Ann Ward with A Southern Soiree was our wedding director.
Eric and I got to chat with Stephan, the audio person with The Umstead. I got all miked and did a sound check.
We were waiting for the sun to go down behind the building before we started.
Sarah was escorted in by her father, David. 
As you can see, the sun had not quite gotten behind the building yet. 
Cara Galati with F8 was our professional  photographer. 
We thanked Sarah's parents for all their love and support. We also remembered Eric's parents who have departed this earth.
Ahhh! The sun has given us some relief. 
I told their story and they heard their secret paragraphs. Then they made their vows to each other and exchanged rings. 
Eric was really taken with the symbolism of the sand ceremony and had gathered many colors of sand to intricately layer together.
They poured their sand together. 
Time for the pronouncement of marriage!!
Eric wasted no time in giving Sarah a really nice kiss to seal the vows! 
A little smile at each other as reality sinks in that they are married!

And away they go!

Sarah and Eric--a very sweet wedding. Simple and elegant and so unique to the two of you. I know you are now enjoying wedded bliss with all your canine companions! Bless you!!
