Even though the spring-like weather had been teasing us all week long, it was fortunate that Casee and Lenny chose to have their wedding indoors at 1705 Prime because the weather turned a bit chilly. I had not done a wedding indoors there before and it was lovely. The dining area had been cleared and made room for what looked like 150 chairs facing the pretty rock wall where we stood for the ceremony. 1705 Prime is the home of Rocky Top Catering, a very popular and delicious choice for weddings, onsite here or at any other venue in the Triangle and beyond.
Fallon's Flowers furnished the two tall clear glass vases flanking the altar topped with flower arrangements and the bouquets in pink including the very fragrant starfire lilies.
Casee and Lenny are gamers, sci-fi fans and their clever place cards reflect their interests and their creativity.KM DJ Company gladly plugged my mic into the body pack and we did a sound check. The sound for the ceremony was perfect! Thanks, Kevin.
This little guy was all dressed up in a suit for the wedding! Mom is starting him off early on dressing properly!
More children arrive with their strollers. So nice to be able to bring your own comfortable rolling chair!
Laura Kesler and her assistant (and husband), Chris, are ready. Yeah, they are not used to having their picture taken. The guests were asked during the ceremony to put away their cameras and cell phones and truly be present for the ceremony. Meanwhile my sweet husband and roadie, Dave, wielded my camera to get the photos you see here on this blog.
After Lenny, Pete (best man), Amy and I entered, Ashlee followed.
She was adorable and everyone had smiles for her.
Would everyone please stand for the bride?
Pete handed me the rings and as I explained the symbolism, the couple joined left hands.
Lenny reads his words to Casee from my book as he places the ring on her finger.
Then it was Casee's turn.
Back to the pronouncement of marriage!
Lenny pulled Casee toward him for the kiss as I got out of the way! Good job, Lenny!
Presentation of the Newlyweds!
The wedding party recessed.
