Talitha and JC Wed on Nov 4th at All Saints

Talitha and JC married on November 4th on a Thursday evening at 5:45pm at All Saints Chapel in Raleigh. This was a special date since Nov 6th would be their 5th anniversary of being together. They had their dinner reception in the reception room there at All Saints, catered by The Pit. Their cake was supplied by Simply Cakes. That way all of their 80 guests would be in one place, wouldn't have to find another location in the dark, and JC and Talitha could maximize enjoying everyone there. And everything went wonderfully.

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:
True love is a sacred flame
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.

We pronounced them wed with the words, 'And so, JC and Talitha, having chosen one another from among all those in this world, having declared and witnessed your love before us, and having bound your pledge with the exchange of rings, I now pronounce you husband and wife. Those whom God has joined together let no one put asunder.'

Then we allowed time for everyone to get in place so they could be thoroughly bubbled on the way out of the chapel.

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.

I got this sweet email from Talitha after their ceremony. 'I just wanted to send a quick email thanking you for the wonderful job you did for our ceremony. We both really liked the way that it turned out and you were so easy to work with and follow throughout the ceremony. We really appreciate the energy and time you put into making our ceremony the best that it could be.
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!
