Weddings at Fearrington are first class and always elegant. Gilda McDaniel and her staff really know how to do a wedding right. I always enjoy working with them and being the officiant at these lovely weddings. Nick and Meg's wedding was no exception. We met in August of 2012 and began planning their ceremony for October 5, 2013 at Fearrington
 The beautiful Crabapple Garden is always a pretty spot with some shade too.
Fearrington's florist, Mary Stevens, always adds just the right touch of floral arrangements. These pretties were hung on the aisle chairs.
Over in the Garden Terrace the tables were all set for the reception. DJ Randy Bennett with Joe Bunn DJ Company was setting up during the ceremony.
The pastry chef at Fearrington bakes the most elegant cakes. Nothing is prettier than a simple cake bedecked with flowers.
The couple got two step ladders between which they strung wire and hung the table assignments and lots of favorite photos.
Their guest book was a map of North Carolina which the guests signed.
It is almost time to start. The guests are getting seated. Gilda is ready and Chris, with Arioso Strings, is playing prelude music.
I took my place at the top of the steps and Nick escorted his mother in then joined me.
 Meg's mother was escorted in by her son and her grandson! 
 Here comes our beautiful bride escorted in by her father! 
Meg and Nick met back in May of 2008 when they were least expecting to. They were both living in the DC area. Meg put an ad in Craig's List looking for a running partner and while he was perusing Craig's list looking for someone to cook with, Nick ran across Meg's ad. They emailed, found out they had mutual friends in the DC area, and decided to meet. They liked being with each other so much they started dating and soon became a couple. Two years later they moved to North Carolina and got engaged three years later. 
Nick's sister, Lindsay, read "The Key to Love" by Robert M. Millay.
After telling their story and revealing to each other what they loved most and what they are looking forward to in marriage, they made their vows to each other and exchanged rings.
I had to put this photo in. Doesn't Nick look like the cat that ate the canary? At this point we are at the closing blessing where I ask them to look around and feel the love of their families and friends surrounding them.
Krystal Kast, their photographer, is getting some of those wonderful pastoral shots that Fearrington weddings are famous for. 
Nick and Meg, thank you for choosing me to be your wedding officiant. I thoroughly enjoyed working with you and then officiating your beautiful sweet wedding. I think everyone enjoyed themselves. And thank you for this review on We loved working with Kayelily. She is easy to work with, responsive, helpful, and professional. She helped us craft a very special ceremony that made our guests (and the bride and groom), both laugh and cry. It was perfect, and we were so lucky to have her be a part of it!
