This cute hanging sign greeted their guests as they arrived for the wedding.BunnDJ Company and he and I were together the previous weekend at a wedding at different venue in downtown Raleigh. He is wonderful to work with!
Wylde Flowers in downtown Raleigh. This is the first time I have done a wedding with them. The hanging canopy filled with peonies and greenery was simply stunning and I've never seen that done before. Clever!
This beautiful cake is by Sugar Euphoria.
I forgot to ask, but I bet this "wedding cake" dish has special significance!
The bar area was all set up. After the ceremony the guests were invited to enjoy cocktails while the big room was being flipped. Rocky Top was catering.
Another stunning floral hanging canopy.
Then it was time for us to go all the way to the top to the Glass Box where the wedding party was hanging out before the ceremony. The couple had done a first look with their photographers, Taylor and Andrew Lovette of Blue Barn Photography.
Securing the boutonnieres on the groomsmen.
Adam is on the right with one of his groomsmen. Hmmm--crooked bowtie I needed to straighten!
Two of the guys were out on the deck enjoying some fresh air. It was a beautiful day.
The guests were seated and it was time to begin. I lead the groomsmen in first. When I got up front and watched the groomsmen take their places I noticed several had crooked bowties. So before Adam escorted his mother in, I took the liberty of straightening them. The guests had a good laugh!
Adam escorted his mother Margie in next.
Then the Mother of the Bride JoAnn was escorted in. Beautiful sparkling golden dress!
Our Maid of Honor Melissa entered after the other bridesmaids had processed in.
And he did! His mother was so happy to intercept him!
Our beautiful radiant bride and her proud father David begin their walk down the aisle!
The parents gave their blessings to the couple and all were seated.
The ceremony began,
A welcome to all their guests.
I asked their parents to stand as we paid tribute to them.
They exchanged their promises of marriage with each other.
Then the ring exchange.
I was delighted to now pronounce them husband and wife and invite them to kiss!
What a kiss!
I don't remember what caused them to look back--their wedding party's cheers most likely!
And away they go!
