The prestigious 5 Star Umstead Hotel and Spa has created a "destination wedding package" for couples wishing to get away to a beautiful luxurious setting and get married--even if they live locally. Wanda and Mack decided that was the perfect set up for them. The Umstead contracted with me to officiate for them then I was in contact with the bride to put the finishing touches on a personalized ceremony just for them. On the wedding day, Monday April 29 2013, I arrived with my husband Dave in tow to take photos for me. 
The wedding was scheduled to take place in the lovely garden courtyard but the day was overcast and rainy but no worry, The Umstead has many beautiful covered areas such as the one above.
Our musician was Scott, a guitarist from Arioso Strings
Meeting the bride and groom and their "kids" for the first time. Mack has one son and Wanda four. They were all grown up handsome young men.

Wanda and Mack! Great way to get married, sweet, simple, elegant with minimum fuss and fanfare! Congratulations!
