Wedding Ceremony & Reception – Courtney & Matt
There couldn’t be a better match than these two. Their personalities and families were made for each other. The ceremony and reception were the first ever events at a new venue in Raleigh, The Fairview. What an awesome venue!! It is a large space and they accommodated every request the bride had, and everything went smoothly. The ceremony was very reverent and intimate. One of the bridesmaids sang “Be Thou My Vision” while Courtney and Matt took communion. After the officiant pronounced them as husband and wife, they went up the aisle to “You Make My Dreams Come True.” The guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres while the bridal party finished up the group photos with Brett & Jessica. After the lively introductions and the meal, the bride and groom joined on the dance floor for their first dance to “Take The World” by Johnnyswim. Courtney then danced with Dad to “Butterfly Kisses” and Matt danced with Mom to “Find Your Wings.” This crowd needed no invitation to dance!! The guest stormed the dance floor and didn’t leave until it was time for some very sincere toasts by the Maid of Honor and Best Man. Once the bride threw the bouquet and the cake was officially smeared, everyone got right back to dancing. What a fun group!!! Thank you for including me in this awesome celebration!! Congrats you two!!
