Annika and Brandon's wedding was on Friday June 17th, 2016 at the beautifully restored historic Merrimon-Wynne House in downtown Raleigh. It had been raining on and off all day.Sally Oakley, our wedding director. She did not know yet whether we would move the wedding inside or be outside.
Joe Bunn DJ Company, was on hand to plug my wireless mic into his system and we did a sound check in the drizzle.
The garden was absolutely beautiful with the pretty green artificial grass and the new Carriage House.
Inside the house, the mantels were display areas for old family photographs of the couple. Tre Bella was the florist for this wedding.
There were so many bridesmaids that they wrapped around the corner and down the wall.
The groomsmen did the same!
Brandon reads his vows from my book.
Annika reads hers to Brandon.
Brandon places the ring on her finger.

After a closing blessing I joyfully pronounced them husband and wife!
Brandon made sure the kiss lasted long enough to get a good photo!
