As I sit here trying to put into words what was such a beautiful and special day for two people who have become great friends of mine, I realize that it was just over a year ago today that I first met with Jamie & Ethan and started on their wedding journey with them.  As people say, time flies when you’re having fun! 
At our first meeting I soon found out that Jamie was going to be a very busy bride!  Busier than most actually.  Her and Ethan were moving to Raleigh, house-hunting, job-hunting, AND planning a wedding all at the same time!  Whew!  We definitely had our work cut out for us.  =)  Thankfully Jamie knew what she liked and knew what she wanted.  As we met with our vendors, we slowly but surely started to pull together the most beautiful ivory, purple, and BLING wedding!
The ceremony was held at Hope Lutheran Church in Wake Forest.   When Jamie showed me a picture of the sanctuary, I was blown away!  It is stunning! 
After Jamie & Ethan said “I do” guests made their way to the Embassy Suites in Brier Creek for cocktails and appetizers on the outdoor patio.  Even though it was mid-June, the weather was perfect for outdoor socializing!  If you haven’t checked out the Embassy Suites, you must go!  The decor and architecture is amazing! 
Thanks to all our super talented vendors – Ashley CakesThe English Garden, DJ Paul Fitts, and Red Carpet Wedding Films for their dedication to details and making each bride’s day feel special.  You all rock!
Thank you to Lisha Myers Photography for sharing these beautiful shots! 

The Matron of Honor’s daughter was the cutest wedding guest ever!

Jamie & Ethan – Thank you guys so much for allowing me to tag along on your special day!  You both were amazing to work with and I’m so grateful that we’ve been able to become good friends!  I wish you many, many years of newlywed bliss!

Picture this: a church wedding, a fabulous reception at a cool, new/historic spot (can we say that? New Historic? Well we did), complete with a change of wedding gowns, flowers, navy colored accents and dancing to a killer band that makes you long for a wedding invitation.
