Amanda and Brandon were rather desperate when they came to see me on July 13th because their wedding was less than one month away on August 2nd, 2014 in the Great Room at Top of the Hill in Chapel Hill. I was so happy I was available and they were excited to be able to have a very personalized ceremony specific to them. We all agreed we would dig right in and start immediately on the ceremony. I sent them links to a ton of ceremony material and, true to their word, I got a first draft of what they liked and wanted shortly. It didn't take us long to put a fabulous ceremony together. We had our rehearsal the day before and ran through the logistics. Key to the success of this wedding coming together was Danielle Olcott, the event manager at Top of the Hill, and good friend of Amanda. Danielle went above and beyond helping Amanda pull everything together and directed on the day of the wedding. Thank you, Danielle, you are the best!
So, after the grandparents and groom's parents and mother of the bride were escorted in, the guys and I entered to the Clef Hangers' rendition of Carolina on my Mind--very appropriate since our couple are UNC grads and loyal Tarheels. They were both in ROTC at UNC. On fact, that is how they met!
Our beautiful bride was escorted in by her father, Benjamin, not without a few tears in his eyes!
And here we go! 
Victoria Park Florist did the pretty flower arrangements. Alex with A & A  Weddings was the photographer along with a second shooter, Beth, whom I had met before at a networking event. They had it covered! 
Loved telling their story. They contributed lots of good fun and everyone enjoyed hearing it! 
Pouring of the unity sand......
A closing blessing....
What we have all been waiting for....the pronouncement of marriage!
The sweet kiss to seal the vows!
And off into their marriage they go! 
Brandon and Amanda! You did it! It was beautiful and I know you are sooooo happy to be married and together forever! Congratulations!
