Will and Margot Wed With Great Joy at The Angus Barn Pavilions

 Will and Margot were a joy in my life.  I got to spend some time with them which made their wedding at The Angus Barn Pavilions in Raleigh even sweeter for me.  They're a great couple, considerate of each other, clear communicators, with a good perspective and joyful spirits.  We created a ceremony that focused on their love and their love for their families.  They've been together over 7 years and are both close to their siblings and their parents.   They chose Billy Joel's lyrics 'Just The Way You Are' as part of their ceremony and the Irish Wedding Blessing.  Both fit them perfectly.

Classical guitarist Scott Neibauer with Arioso Strings offered lovely renditions of Bach's 'Prelude from Suite 1,'  Beethoven's 'Ode to Joy,' and the Beatles' 'Here Comes The Sun' as their processional music.
I loved the words we chose to say about their marriage:  "For Margot and Will, marriage is a commitment to life - to be the best that two people can find and bring out in each other.  It offers opportunities for sharing and growth that no other human relationship can equal, a joining that is promised for a lifetime.'

Will proposed in Pittsburgh at the top on the incline overlooking the city.  It was a rainy day and both families were in the covered shelter in the know about why he and Margot were outside alone in the gusting wind, even though the proposal was a surprise to Margot.  Will planned it well and it was just right for them.  You can see their faces light up when they talk about it.

Jason Dail was their excellent photographer, their florist was Cornelia Vick, the band was White Chocolate from East Coast Entertainment and their videographer was Philip McInnis from Twenty-One Films, LLC.  I loved crediting good professionals.  They make it all come together smoothly.  Special thanks goes to Ashley Whittington with Angus Barn for her fabulous coordination.  I've worked with Ashley before and she is gracious, professional and thorough.  

They have a Basset Hound named Buddy and a couple of nutty cats.  They know how to create a home and a life full of love.  

They brought love into my life and I send it right back to them.  May their life be blessed.  They're the kind of folks who pass it on to others.

When they got back from their honeymoon I got the following pictures that friends had taken and this sweet note: 

'Will and I could not be more pleased with how everything went on Saturday. You were amazing (and everybody else thinks so as well), and everything went so well. The sound problem was only a minor glitch and I think we all handled it very well. I cannot believe we didn't have any planes fly over! How amazing is that?!
I have attached a few pictures from the reception. It was a blast and I want to do it all again! I will be sure to send you Jason's pictures once they are available.
I am glad you enjoyed our video of pictures; it was really important to us to have as much of a personal feel to the wedding as possible. I think we did a great job of it :)
Thank you again for EVERYTHING. You have been amazing to us and are surely someone we will never forget.'

They both have dear families.  There was lots of love and caring at their wedding.  It was a joy to be a part of!  Blessed Be!
