Meghan and Chuck

Meghan and Chuck were married in December in Wake Forest at the Stone Chapel with their reception at Wakefield Plantation and were our last couple of 2008.  Both Meghan and Chuck are in the Air Force, so they were separated from each other(most of the time by an ocean!) through most of the planning process.  I will have to say, they are a truly amazing couple!  We throw around the word soulmates alot, but I can honestly say that these two were meant for each other.  Seeing them together gives me the warm fuzzies!  Meghan and I hit it off immediately when we chatted over the phone and I knew immediately that her and I would not only have a great time planning her wedding but that we would also become great friends!  She is such a sweet, caring person and I was so happy to be a part of her special day!  Ok, so enough of the gushing, on to the wedding!
Their ceremony took place at Stone Chapel in Wake Forest.  Unfortunately, it was a little rainy, but we made the best of it!  Check out the pics below from one of the cutest photographers around, April Sirit with Evoke Photography.  Not only is she tons of fun but she does beautiful work as well!

Each of the bouquets were wrapped with lace from Meghan’s late mother’s dress.  This was such a sweet touch, I loved it!

Each guest had a yummy chocolate chip cookie at their place setting.  Cookies were significant to the bride and groom, so we wanted to include them in the reception.  Also, a donation was made to a breast cancer charity for each guest.

I love this image!  This was taken during the toasts, but I love it because it captures the candlelight in the reception.  That was very important to Meghan, so we filled Wakefield with candles, as you can see on the fireplace!

We used the long head table in the middle of the room that I love and thanks to Fresh Affairs it was filled with beautiful gerberas, hydrangeas, tulips and lots of candles!

Just had to include this shot!  Joe Bunn from Bunn DJ was our DJ for the evening and as usual everything was perfect!  Not sure what was going on here though…

Their cake from Sweet Memories was delicious as always!  Check out the cake toppers made by the bride’s brother.  They were models of the bride and the groom’s plane’s that they fly.  We had to make sure that Meghan’s plane was in the lead though!

Congrats Meghan and Chuck, you were a blast to work with and I wish you all the best!
