Melissa and Chris are a dynamic couple who have definite ideas about what they want in life--and in their wedding! They were a blast to work with and we had to be mindful of keeping their ceremony to under 30 minutes in anticipation of the hot weather of their wedding day of July 6, 2013 at Brier Creek Country Club. When all was said and done, all the very important elements were included.
So, here is the Jasmine Court awaiting the arrival of the musicians--Arioso Strings--and the guests.English Garden did the florals for the wedding.
Their lovely cake was by Ashley Cakes.Arioso Strings arrived and got set up 30 minutes before start time and began warming up--the instruments that is! It was plenty warm for us humans already.
Damien Maas, put the video microphone and body pack on me so that my voice would be clear in the video.
Premier Party Planners was on hand to be in charge of the day. Nicole and I have worked together in the past and she is really good and I really appreciate her expertise. She had gotten the guests from the lobby where they were congregated staying cool down to the garden and seated. Then she rounded up the wedding party. Here comes the groom!
Now our pretty bridesmaids in their guava dresses.
Their photographer is Christian Del Rosario with Attreo Studio.
Before they were seated, each guest took a stone from a basket to hold during the ceremony and infuse their blessings for Melissa and Chris into it then return it to the basket after the ceremony. The stones will be displayed in their home as a reminder of all who were present at their ceremony.
After the vows and rings, Nanette Geiger, sang "Come What May" while the couple poured their sand together.
