On April 29th 2017 Jenn and Matt were married! Their beautiful wedding was at the historic All Saints Chapel in downtown Raleigh.
It was a nice day--a little on the warm side for April--and better inside where it was cool. Sally Oakley was their wedding planner and everything was going according to plan. Kevin Seifert, a professional photographer, again volunteered to take these photos for my blog for me. He is so good. These are the best photos I have ever seen of the chapel.
All the florals were by Expressions of Love florist. Very pretty, elegant and simple.
Darcie is getting ready to sign the marriage license for me. She is the Maid of Honor.
The chapel is ready.
The candles are lit.
Live View Studios, our couple's official photographers. They are really good photographers and I like working with them.
Pretty image of the old lanterns that hang from the ceiling of the chapel.
Sally has gotten the groomsmen to come up from the lower level and be ready to escort the guests in.
In the meantime, I like to take a quiet moment to sit down and review the ceremony script.
The guests are pouring in!
Sally helps one of the grandmothers with her corsage. Not always easy to pin these on dresses.
Pointing out to the ushers/groomsmen empty seats in the second row. It was almost full.
The music changed then I led the groom and his men in to take our places up front.
The bridesmaids entered one by one and filled in the other side of the altar. Then time for the bride.
Here comes the bride!
A wedding is such a wonderful occasion filled with hopes, dreams, and excitement! Welcome!
Following the Welcome was a sweet blessing for the couple.
Then I stepped out and spoke to their parents thanking them for their love and support.
Our pretty bridesmaids!
Launching into the story of how they met and fell in love. It was destiny, of course.
Once they met in 2013, they quickly became a couple and Matt proposed in 2015.
Then what they love about each other and what they are looking forward to in marriage.
They made their vows to each other.
May I have the rings, please?
They sealed their vows with their rings.
Caught Matt looking at that ring on his finger!
Good job, Matt and Jenn!
What a nice looking couple who are so perfectly matched for each other.
What's so funny? I don't remember!
Jenn and Matt, congratulations on a wonderful wedding. I know you will have much happiness and joy!
