Noelle and Alex's Beautiful Wedding at The Oaks at Salem!

Alex and Noelle chose to have their beautiful wedding at The Oaks at Salem in Apex. It is a fantastic setting for weddings with everything in one place and plenty of parking. Their staff does such a great job of taking care of everyone.
Their adorable wedding cake with the cats was baked by Sweet Memories Bakery
The guests are gathering before the ceremony under the tent. August 13th was one of the hottest days of the summer of 2016! The ceremony was in the direct sun so the guests were not seated until right before we were ready to begin the processional. MEWS Designs was the florist for the wedding.
Charles is our DJ with All Events DJ with his assistant for the day. Probably talking about the heat!
Their guest book! 
Nice touches for the ceremony.
The guests have been seated and Alex and I followed by his groomsmen make our entrance. 
The guests are ready for us to begin. 
We take our places up front in the direct sun. 
The bridesmaids make their way around the lake. 
Vivenne is hurrying along! 
Here comes the bride! 
The ceremony begins.
A sweet tribute to their parents was followed by their story. They met at NC State in  Japanese class. Alex admits he took the class looking for a girlfriend because there was a scarcity of women in Electrical Engineering! He spotted Noelle and the pursuit began! Five years later, he proposed!
August 13th was one of the hottest days of the summer of 2016! Alex and I were dripping with perspiration like faucets. I mopped Alex's face several times as well as my own! Noelle on the other hand was managing to stay cool!
They exchanged rings and vows. 
Dried him off before the pronouncement of marriage! 
I pronounced them married and invited them to kiss!
Mission accomplished! 
We circled back around to the front of the house for photos. Despite the intense heat, it was a gorgeous wedding and they are married! Congratulations, Alex and Noelle! I wish you the best always.
