Erin and Preston Wed at Barclay Villa!

Jennifer of Jennifer V. Event Design sent Erin and Preston my way last January because they did not have an officiant for their wedding on August 6th, 2016 at Barclay Villa in Angier. I love working weddings with Jennifer! So I met Erin and Preston in February and we started planning their ceremony.  
When Dave (my husband and photographer) and I arrived, the first thing was to hook up my wireless ear microphone into All Event DJ's system and do a sound check. Victor makes that a snap!
The view of the house from the gazebo. 
Inside there was purple uplighting to go with the plum, lavender and ivory color scheme. Cinda's Creative Cakes provided the cupcakes and a cake for cutting by the couple.
Victor and his assistant that I believe he is training go over the events for the evening. 
Sitting inside in the cool air are Preston's Grandmother all dressed up in her wedding duds! Love the hat! 
The house is full of period pieces like this cute little guy on the staircase rail. 
Up in the bride's dressing room, Jennifer and her assistant check in with Erin. I was there getting the license signed.
On our way back downstairs we see the parlor where guests can gather later. 
Time to get in line for the processional! 
Preston's mom, Priscilla, is escorted in by his stepfather, Ricky. 
Lynn, mother of the bride, is escorted in by Erin's cousin. 
Time for me to bring in Preston and his groomsmen. 
We await the bridesmaids. 
First to process in is Lindley. 
Then Maid of Honor, Caitlin.
Our flower girl, Erica, enters. 
Now for the bride's entrance! 
Erin's father, John, proudly escorts his beautiful daughter down the aisle. 
Erin was beaming!
The transfer of hands is done and John takes his seat with Lynn. 
Poor Preston is right in the sun! 
I wish I had thought to step back a few steps and get him out of the sun but I didn't. 
I loved sharing the story of how they met and fell in love.
And the proposal story!
Our great photographer, Michelle Gunton, is getting some good shots. Cateringworks was our caterer and also did the florals. 
They exchanged their vows.
Preston is being such a good sport with the sun in his face!
They exchanged rings.
A closing blessing.
The pronouncement of marriage! 
The first kiss as a married couple! 
And off they go into their new married life! 
Congratulations from the guests on their way out!
Erin and Preston, I am so happy that Jennifer sent you my way. It was my honor to join you in marriage and work with you to create your sweet ceremony. I wish you all the best forever!
