Magnolia Manor right outside of Greensboro. I don't think Steph could have asked for a better evening to have an outdoor wedding. The temperature was perfect, the sunset was perfect and the colors blooming were gorgeous.
her bridal portraitWe got there a little later than I would have liked (we did make it before the ceremony started though) so we stood in the back instead of climbing over top of people to get to chairs. This gave me a chance to get better pictures anyway. PLUS I had on that ginormous hat so I probably would have been blocking the view of anyone behind me. Steph looked gorgeous as her dad walked her down the aisle.
I enjoyed the ceremony and it was nice to hold my husbands hand during the entire thing. The scripture reading was from 1 Corinthians and we squeezed each others hand through it as a reminder of the day that we committed ourselves to each other while listening to the same verses. It was really fun. For the reception we moved in to the banquet room in the house where we enjoyed a barbecue buffet dinner with both Lexington & Eastern style barbecue. If you're not Southern you probably have no idea what I am talking about and you are truly missing out on some good grub. I even had a small glass of wine - Zinfandel. I think? I just asked for the "pink stuff."
So who wants to babysit for the next date night? Say......this Saturday?
