Chalkboards by Julie greeted the guests on this beautiful day of March 23, 2019.
They took their places up front then the bridesmaids joined them one by one.
Then the adorable ring bearer pulled the wagon of babies down the aisle.
And lastly our beautiful bride was escorted in by her mother and father and another sweet little flower girl.
A hearty welcome to all their guests followed by tributes to their family members.
A spectacular photo by our professional photographers, Elyssa and John with Kivus and Camera. In fact, they provided most of the photos for this blog post and I am so grateful. Look for their watermark-- the encircled star in the lower right-hand corner. (The photos without the watermark were taken by my husband with my camera.)
There was lots of laughter as well as tender moments.
Another humorous moment!
Following the exchange of their vows, they exchanged their rings.
We closed with a blessing then the pronouncement of marriage.
Their first kiss as husband and wife!
Oh happy day!!
The joyous walk back down the aisle into their new life!
And another kiss!
Outside after the ceremony the wedding party and parents and the Durham Bulls mascot gathered for some photos.
The wind was making it extra fun and made for some great photos!
Emily Thomas, owner of Emily Katherine Events, coordinated the wedding vendors and helped bring the couple's vision of their wedding day into reality!
