Brad and Katie's wedding at Barclay Villa in Angier on November 12th 2016 was so beautiful. The colors and the setting were simply stunning.
Katie and Brad are the third couple in a group of good friends that I have had the pleasure of joining in marriage. So, it turns out that I already knew quite a few in their wedding party. It was good to see everyone again! I got a photo of most of them here. On the left are Trina and Mark, the first of the couples to be wed by me. Their wedding was at Rose Hill Plantation. It is not really noticeable in this photo but Trina is pregnant and two weeks later they welcomed their sweet baby girl, Harper, into this world. On the right is Jason. I married Jason and Jessica a year ago at the Doubletree at Brownstone. Here is the post for their wedding. Jessica was at the wedding but not in the wedding party and was unfortunately not around for this photo.His and Jaime's wedding was at Duke Gardens in 2010. Fantastic to see him again. His business is Sweet Sound Productions, Inc.
The tables were set and you can see that the wedding color is burgundy. Catering by Design was on duty!
The wedding cake was by Publix and Katie found this cute cake topper.
The guests are beginning to arrive. This is the view from the gazebo back toward the villa.
Another beautiful fountain on the lovely grounds of the villa.
Brad followed me and behind him were the groomsmen and bridesmaids and flower girl.
The best man and brother of the groom, Brandon, escorted in their mother then joined Brad.
Now we await the bridesmaids who came down the aisle one by one.
Katie and her dad, Keith begin the walk down the aisle!
Katie was just beaming!
Keith answered my question to him and transferred Katie's hand into Brad's. Notice the line of the sun.
What a beautiful and handsome wedding party!
Jacki straightened the train while I recognized the parents of our couple and then launched into their story!
Bridget has found her way back to Mom!
Time to reveal the secret paragraphs to each of them which were so sweet and funny too.
The vows and rings were next.
Katie puts the ring on Brad's finger as she said the words after me.
It was a big ring. Brad is a big guy. But she got it on his finger finally!
So happy to pronounce these two husband and wife!
A sweet kiss--their first as husband and wife!
