Errol and Ksenia @ Hall and Gardens at Landmark in Garner

It was a hot day!  Luckily Ksenia and Errol looked not only cool but lovely and gracious the whole time.  I was impressed.  They had planned their wedding for a year at the Hall and Gardens at Landmark in Garner.  It is a gorgeous location.  

The only drawbacks of this location I noticed are that there is a lot of traffic noise at the gazebo, which is the location in the gardens closest to the street  (Luckily we had my amplifier and microphone).

Also the Hall and Gardens at Landmark don't have a coordinator that works with the couple on the wedding day.  I was told by the staff that they rent the space and if something is needed the couple has to ask.   Luckily again there was nothing needed for this easy going couple and this small intimate wedding of about 60 guests..

Arioso Strings played for the ceremony adding elegance and calm to the evening and setting just the right tone.  You can see Arioso Strings Review Blog of the event at this link.  Thanks too to Mary Page Block, the head of Arioso Strings who is also a wonderful photographer.  While the wedding is going on, if she has time and a good shot, she'll might get a fabulous photograph.  

And they had wonderful music for their processional.  The theme from the Last of the Mohicans move was what Errol entered to and 'All I Ask of You' was for the wedding party to enter on, and Ksenais entered on the arm of Errol's father to  "My Heart Will Go On.'

Lisa Brown from Bella Rose Photography and her assistant got fabulous shots and were working hard in the heat and the limited access to the wedding location to get wonderful shots.  I can't recommend her professionalism highly enough.  Thanks, Lisa!  Here she is taking a picture of Ksenia and her flower girl.

Thanks to Mary Page Block for this shot, too.  It was a treat to be with Ksenia and Errol and their families at such an important moment, and it was a treat to be working with such wonderful professionals.  All together, it becomes a labor of love  - no matter how hot it is.

Errol has a deployment in Afghanistan soon.  My prayers go with him, and my hopes and blessings to with both Errol and Ksenia for a wonderful life together.
