Sarah and Ryan are an easy going couple, so comfortable with each other. Might be because they have known each other for 5 years. Might be because they both grew up in Virginia and their families still live there. They met in college (in Virginia, of course) during Ryan's freshman year and soon became a couple throughout their college years. Following graduation, they both ended up getting jobs in the Triangle and decided it was time to get engaged and plan this wedding for June 15, 2013 at The Umstead Hotel and Spa. Their wedding day weather was ideal and I was looking forward to working with the Catering Manager, Kelly Ann Ward, again on another fabulous wedding. She does such a great job keeping everyone organized and every detail handled. Thanks, Kelly Ann!
Arioso Strings got set up and were practicing.
George, the sound man at The Umstead, and I have worked together now for years. My microphone plugs right into the body-pack of his sound system and we do a sound check to get the volume just right.Ginger Beard Video Production is in the Triangle. Yes, that is "beard" not "bread" because Daniel sports a well groomed ginger colored beard!
Cinda's Creative Cakes provided the lovely cake.
Ryan entered with his parents, Erik and Dina.
Look at Ryan's face! No wonder the guests laughed a lot!
The serious moment of the pronouncement of marriage!
