The Arrowhead Inn in N. Durham is a quaint B&B where many couples get married. They offer romantic get-a-ways and many wedding packages. Laura and Jeff fell in love with the place for their sweet family wedding and we met on February 9th to plan their wedding on October 1st, 2016.
This is the circular drive from the entrance.
Pathway to the cottage.
Pathway to the back courtyard and Victorian gazebo.
More whimsical landscaping!
Path to the terrace behind the inn.
Cool garden sculptures!
The garden cottage.
The beautiful Victorian gazebo where the guests have gathered.
The musicians from Florian Music are playing prelude music.
Jeff and I walk down the path from the garden cottage.
Laura's father, Ken, is proud to escort his beautiful daughter down the walk.
The transfer of hands is made and Laura's veil lifted.
After welcoming everyone and opening with a prayer, we remembered those loved ones no longer with us.
Then it was Jeff's turn to speak to Laura's two children.
It was very emotional and so I ended up finishing what he wanted to say.
Then the children returned to their seats. As you can see many of the guests were very touched.
Then it was time for them to read their vows to each other from my book and place the rings.
Laura's turn. And a few more tears! I pulled out another hankie!
A closing blessing was next.....
The pronouncement of marriage!
Their first kiss as husband and wife!
I introduced the newlyweds to their guests as they were cheering them on.
The new family!
Shortly after the wedding, Laura left this message for me on Facebook for which I am grateful:
We couldn't have made it through our wedding ceremony without Kayelily. This was the second marriage for both of us and 5 teenagers and young adults involved. Kayelily helped guide us through having the most meaningful, tearful, joyous and memorable event of our lives. Kayelily spoke about us in a way that it felt like she had known us and our family forever. Our expectations were pretty high on how are ceremony would go, but never expected how personal and perfect Kayelily would have made it. Kayelily took her time, kept reminding us to take this moment in and embrace all the love. It will never be forgotten! I would recommend Kayelily Middleton if you want one of the best wedding ceremonies ever. If you're nervous she calms you, if you cry she helps you with your tears and turns them into laughter. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. And, again I will say we couldn't have made it without you...... Jeff & Laura
