“with all this rain, our knot will be tied TIGHT!” hadley and andy were engaged under the water tower at the american tobacco campus. what better spot to be married than right there under the tower… right?? well mother nature had other plans on the day of their wedding. lots of radar watching went on this day. decisions about whether to move it inside or hope that it stayed dry during the ceremony time. but through it all you wouldn’t have found a more calm and collected couple than hadley and andy. they were like “whatever will be will be!” so weather was one thing i think about when i remember their day. the Other thing i remember is the chicken and waffles…. haha! this was my introduction to chicken and waffles. and now i feel like my life is a little more complete! durham catering did the most Delicious and Beautiful food at the reception! and man i’d love to hunt them down for some more chicken and waffles!! this wedding really was Full of The Best vendors… dana from c&d events did a fabulous job dealing with the weather and switching up the location of the ceremony. no way the day would have run as smooth without her! citrine salon… nothing but Amazing things to say about them!!! gorgeous hair. always. (AND a photographers dream to shoot in their salon! such gorgeous light!) tre bella did the beautiful flowers and the cupcake cake was by sweet memories (MMMmmmm love cupcakes at weddings!!!) joe bunn, the leader in professionally talented dj’s in wake and durham county, rocked out the reception. seriously, i’m not sure you could have gotten a more talented group of vendors if you tried! hadley and andy, you know we love yall! i know your wedding day wasn’t Exactly how you planned it, but it was an Awesome day and we were honored to have been a part of it!! and hadley, i want your reception dress to wear at least once. xxoo
radar discussion… radar watching…..
