The English Garden was their florist and they did an amazing job decorating this site for the wedding. I had seen their doors done up for the Carolina Bridal Show at the Carolina Inn and was so impressed. Here they created the doorway to the wedding again and hung the doors with moss covered initials of "K" and "P" for our bride and groom. The chalk board welcomed the guests.
This lovely "altar" arrangement fit so well the decor of the Angus Barn and was so unique.
The Angus Barn audio staff was on hand to plug my microphone into their sound system and provide a microphone for our readers. What excellent service!
Inside, the tables were all set elegantly and ready for the guests for the reception.Pavilions is so spacious with that huge ceiling fan and a huge see through fireplace.
Cinda's Creative Cakes made this gorgeous cake with the delicate lacy icing topped with roses.
Out on the terrace was their "tree" where the guests had begun to put their names on the leaves. I am sure it was completely filled by the time the celebration was over.
Phil's father, Joe, and his stepmother, Joyce, were next to walk in.
Next up were the guys and me.
Next to last in is our Matron of Honor, Megan. She and Ben came in from Atlanta for the wedding.
Here we are watching our sign-bearer walk in but he got a little side tracked and went down the wrong path!Joe Bunn DJ Co. who provided the music for the ceremony. Steve and I have done so many weddings together he is like family too! (One of our bridesmaids got a little light-headed during the wedding and Steve was the first to notice her distress and got a bottle of water to her--thanks, Steve; it's so nice to know you've got my back!)
Yes, it was quite a large wedding party!
And now for their story! Kate and Phil met one evening when Phil joined a bunch of Kate's friends who were going out to celebrate her birthday in 2009. His roommate had been telling him how awesome Kate was and Kate felt totally at ease with Phil. In fact they both told me that it felt like they had known each other all their lives. It did not take them long to become a couple and eventually decide to marry.
That is Erin, younger sister of the bride and Maid of Honor, on the left. Her wedding will be the next one for her parents, David and Diane. In fact, I told David that I would have to give him a volume discount for the next one!
The bell was rung in celebration of the wedding as they recessed out!
And away they go to begin their new adventure as husband and wife!Angus Barn, and I congratulate each other on a job well done! Thanks, Ashley, it was great to work with you, as usual! Our photographers for the wedding were Rebecca and Mary with Millie Hollomon Photography.
Hey, you two! What a fabulous wedding! Congratulations! Have a wonderful honeymoon and enjoy wedded bliss! I will see you again at Erin's wedding!
