I think that a good part of it must have been their wonderful nature - as well as good planning on their part, of course.
Thanks to J and J Photography from Chapel Hill for providing these wonderful pictures of their ceremony.
I love All Souls Chapel for the warm and stunning architecture, the great lighting, the beautiful camera angles and their great staff.
Coming from different faith backgrounds, Catholic and Baptist, Talitha and JC were sure they wanted a non-denominational ceremony but weren't sure of the options possible for their ceremony. It was fun planning their ceremony with them. They're fun people who are sure to be successful in their marriage because they are so easy going and generous of spirit.
From my resources they chose a beautiful poem by an anonymous author:
That burns eternally,
And non can dim its special glow
Or change its destiny.
True love speaks in tender tones
And hears with gentle ear,
True love gives with open heart
And true love conquers fear.
True love makes no harsh demands
It neither rules nor binds,
And true love hold with gentle hands
The hearts that it entwines.
Then before almost anyone had a chance to go anywhere, we got a group photo. This is another great asset to this venue - the balcony where musicians can play and photographers and video-graphers can get great shots.
Thanks again for everything!
Talitha and JC'
I so appreciate it when a couple sends a thank you. For all the wedding professionals I know, including myself, it's a labor of love to be a part of their wedding. And it's so thoughtful of the bride and groom to be aware of that. I wish them all the best. And I'm sure their next 50 years will be like their last 5 - full of love!
